Torrence Take on Sunday Best 5: Episode 7

Published by Torrence Glenn on Friday, August 10, 2012 at 7:59 pm.


Hey folks, let’s just get right into it ok? This episode was special because it paid tribute to one of the greatest and most prolific artists and songwriters of ALL time, Pastor Andrae Crouch. So with that, the Sunday Best six began with a performance of “Can’t Nobody Do Me Like Jesus.” (Yeah, he even wrote that! I bet you think some old lady at a convention in the 1800’s started it up in a tarry service but nope, Andrae Crouch!)

The competition portion of the night started off with Alexis Spight singing “Soon and Very Soon. I was a little concerned with the opening but once the music came in to support her it was great. I also love that at 18 years old with as good as she is, she’s able to be mentored. Not to make any generalizations or judgments but a lot of young singers with her ability and potential are rather un-teachable. She listens and applies and I think that’s why she’s getting even better as the competition goes on. (On a personal note, this song always DUMPS me. I mean, dumps me real bad. Short version of a long story: my maternal mother died when I was 6 years old and this is the only thing I can remember from the funeral. Everything else is a literal blur… Well that and my first limousine ride and a really good sandwich from a deli in the middle of nowhere Long Island on the way to the very far away cemetery… No, seriously that sandwich was amazing!)

Next up it was Michael Lampkin singing “Oh It Is Jesus.” For I have touched…. Bye….Carpet Salad….*whoosh*

Kizzy Walker followed with “I’ll Be Thinking Of You. Definitely a departure from the Kizzy we normally get and I loved it. She’s a smart singer. I really LOVED IT!

Next was Joshua Rogers with a song I’ve always loved, “We Expect You.” I feel like I have to say something here or I’ll lose my job or something for always being at a loss for words. Ha! …. It was just brilliant. I did  notice one little thing, his eyes kind of goes into the back of his head when he starts feeling like a run, so he’ll need to learn to control that his audience doesn’t feel disconnected but that’s a small thing. Whew! Whew!

Ashford Sanders was next with “Through It All. This performance really got to me not just because Ashford can sing his face off but because those of us who’ve gotten to know Ashford, know his powerful testimony and how appropriate that song is to his journey and his time on Sunday Best. I agree with Yolanda Adams, the testimony was definitely there and I’m getting a little teary typing this. It was great. LOVED IT!

Closing the night was Danetra Moore with “Jesus Is The Answer.” PERFECT…

Isaac Carree and Zacardi Cortez took us home with “We Are Not Ashamed.” They did their gooooood singing. Always glad to see Isaac step out to the front and do the thing!

Well, the Sunday Best six brought it so bad the judges literally at a loss just like i was mostly as a loss for words. This competition just gets tougher. Do you agree? Would you have sent somebody home?

This is in regards to Episode 8. I am highly disappointed that a show that is supposed to allow the public to determine “Sunday’s Best” would allow judges – who publicly PRAISED – Ashford Sanders to vote off the one contestant that many believe should be the winner of this season. In fact, I am irate and there are several hundred viewers all over the internet including your facebook page and on several twitter accounts as well that I was able to locate with the same sentiment. It should be noted that viewers are posting comments on past episode websites because there is no place to comment on Episode 8. What makes this so controversial is that the judges criticized contestants on pitch issues – yet allowed them to stay. Yet, Sunday Best votes off the highly favored seasoned veteran who moved Andrae Crouch to tears and is in fact anointed and on pitch? This is indefensible and should be rectified if the show expects to maintain its credibility.

(I meant to state that comments have been left on Sunday’s Best facebook page containing the same sentiments as those expressed above. In fact, some viewers are stating that they will stop watching the show.)

Wow, Sunday Best is turning out not to be that at all anyone who watched that show nows that Ashford Sanders was by far the best, this is sort of parallel to what to Jennifer Hudson on American Idol. I will write a letter to BET and let them know just how I feel in protest and encourage others to do the same this is all about what image, they want, then the put the bishop/minister Michael off on sunday august 19, the two the are left are not the best by far……….I will not watch again.
