Listen to this. Just listen to it.
Ahhh, wasn’t that great? The first video is of The Brilliance and the second and third video is of Gungor. These videos are from the Hope Student Activities Committee (SAC) sponsored concert that happened last Saturday (01/10/15). They brought in Gungor and had The Brilliance with the Hope Chapel Worship Band open for them. Both were phenomenal.
I can truthfully say that this was the best concert that I have ever been to. Here is why: There are musicians…and then there are musicians. Gungor is definitely the second. As a band, Michael Gungor (the guitarist and vocalist), Lisa Gungor (playing the synthesizer and singing), and the rest of the the artists on the stage (the cellist, drummer, bass guitar player, and pianist) would all go in to crazy impressive improv throughout the concert. They didn’t pre-plan those improv times, they just went for it. They just made eye contact and then they went for it. And they. did. it. AMAZINGLY. every. time. Literally, people’s mouths were gaping throughout the entire concert as Gungor showcased their amazing skill.
Not only did the music ability of the concert make this the the best concert ever, but so to did the power behind all the songs. You can tell that with each song that was written, that Gungor had poured their heart and soul into them. The music played was moving and so so so powerful.
This was literally the best concert that I have ever been to. I remember walking away from the SAC sponsored Ingrid Michaelson concert last year and thinking the exact same thing. Hope Concert series hasn’t disappointed me yet and I am super excited to see who they bring in for next year. Gosh….I love Hope College more and more every day.
