    I was asked to join the ebonite Gospel Choir here on campus playing bass! It doesn't pay much, but They perform everywhere... and I would be playing some gospel music. My guitarist and I were practicing in my apartment the other day and the choir director heard us and today asked us to join.. I was flattered to say the least :D. Its alot of work.. but I will get the chance to play out alot when I'm not working with my band.. I am very excited about it. Guess I gotta get working on my gospel chops :)..

    I think i'm gonna stick out a bit though.. being 6'8 and white... oh well i'm ok with that :D

    Nowadays, that's a smaller problem than you seem to think. As long as you're there for the same reason as the others, you'll fit in fine.

    Congrats on the gig offer.

    The great thing about Gospel music is how much it's rooted in R&B, Soul, Funk, Jazz, and Blues. You'll probaly have a lot of fun playing it. :)
