2nd Generation - Concert Recap

You know how some days just don't go as planned? I knew when I walked into the church's fellowship hall, this had been one of those times. When you walk in a concert as the group is going through introductions, you know you have must have missed part of it. And unfortunately that's what happened to me a few weeks ago when I went to see 2nd Generation. The time got moved up unexpectedly, so I was a little late to join them. However, it was good to see how the group made the best of the situation and still had a great afternoon of worship!

2nd Generation - Elaine Robinson, Brenda Denney
and Randy Barnes
The first song I got to hear was "Faces." The song, made popular by Greater Vision, is such a powerful song. When we were making the list of songs to include in my grandfather's visitation to honor him, this was one I wanted in the playlist! Randy Barnes does an incredible job of taking this song and making it his own. I was excited to find out later that this will be included on the group's upcoming project.

The next song was "Hanging on a Nail," which was one of the first hits for the group. The song features Brenda Denney. Always love getting to hear her sing this song! Next they picked up the tempo a bit with "Daddy Was an Old Time Preacher Man," paying tribute to Brenda and Elaine's dad.

Randy then was featured on "Waving on the Other Side," which is a great song about those who have passed on encouraging us here on earth.

Before the next song, Elaine talked about the hope we have in Christ. The problems we face in this life is nothing for our God. We have a promise that He is our Light in this dark world. He's our hope and He is all we need. Then, Elaine sang one that will be from the group's upcoming project The Church called "All Our Hope." This song was the highlight of the afternoon, incredible song with an incredible message!

They ended the afternoon with the uptempo songs "Singing and Rejoicing" and "We'll Go Down Standing Up."

I always love hearing this group sing, but I love seeing their hearts after and seeing them minister after the concert is over. This is a group that really knows their mission is not just to sing but to minister and encourage believers. If they are in your area, don't miss 2nd Generation!
