Torrence’s Take on Sunday Best 5: Episode 10

Published by Torrence Glenn on Sunday, August 26, 2012 at 9:38 pm.


What a huge and exciting night! Let’s get right into it!

Season 4 Winner Amber Bullock opened the show with the first single from her debut full length CD So In Love. Amber pulled that song off like only she can. She does a LOT of singing on it, but she can do it so it’s all good. The jazz, the turns, etc. We see why Amber took the title home. Loved it.

Alexis Spight opened up the competition portion of the show with “And Yet I’m Still Saved” By Donald Lawrence and The Tri-City Singers featuring Robin Rowe-Stewart. (Loved her!!!) I think Alexis did a good job with this. There were a few cracks but they weren’t the major kind. Just those incidental things that our voices do to us. She worked the song and the band and background singers gave her a lot to work with. She did good! Still get a little tickled when I see such a young woman singing such grown songs. Ha!

Joshua Rogers followed Alexis with an uber CHURCHED OUT rendition of Isaac Carree’s “In The Middle.” I didn’t even know the song could go almost revival style like that. Joshua squalled and hollered all over that thing. It was still good though, just a bit unexpected but I think it goes with knowing who you are and what you’re good at. It was a nice mix of church (his style) and contemporary (the style of the song.) And did you all catch that Prince “nod” in the music. Go Big Jim and band!

Vashawn Mitchell came next with “Turning Around For Me” and real talk, every time I hear this song I get a little “quickenish.” Ha! He and his singers killed and did you see the fit? The shoes were anointed for such a time as this and if Vashawn and I wore the same size, I promise you those shoes would disrespectfully disappear from his dressing room and find their way to my closet. Ha!  But if you like “Turning Around For Me.” Make sure you go out Tuesday and pick up his new CD Created 4 This. It’ll get you real good. Ha!

Joshua returned for a second performance with “Lord Lift Us Up” by Joe Cocker and Jennifer Warnes. A popular version of this song was also done by BeBe and CeCe Winans. I enjoyed this performance although it wasn’t necessarily my favorite. He exhibited a whole lot of restraint which was refreshing to see. But note, when I say it wasn’t my favorite, it by no means that it wasn’t good. Let’s say in a season of 9s and 10s this might have been an 8, so that’s no slouch!

OK, what is it about these seconds songs???? Like Joshua, this was no my favorite performance of Alexis. And like Joshua, just because it wasn’t my favorite, it doesn’t make it bad. I just prefer all the other ones! Ha! As we know from Alexis’ cover of Kim Burrell’s “Calvary” the girl has GUTS!!!! So to add that rap verse to the song took a lot of guts as well, but the judges seemed to love it so maybe her guts continue to pay off.

But here’s the thing about the judges. Their jobs are done and they no longer have any say. Now it’s up to you so go and vote right now!


So how did you feel about this episode? Who are you voting for? Who do you think will win? Let me know!

I know it has been said that only one can be Sunday Best, but can we make an exception this season? Can they both win and do the album together? Joshua has been most consistant throughout the season, he is an awesome and anointed young man. Alexis has improved every week and tonight showed she can be versitile. God Bless both of them for representing extremely well letting the world know all is not lost in our youth.
On another note, can Erica and Tina of Mary Mary PLEASE return next season of Sunday Best??

This year was really hard to judge…There were a few that left that I loved to listen to, but Joshua and Alexis leaves me speechless, they are amazing…Joshua really warmed my heart tonight with his song…Alexis is extremely talented and I have no doubt each of them will have a blessed future; however, I chose to vote for Joshua this time. I just love Sunday Best…wish it came on twice a year.

I love both singers but my favorite is Joshua. He just has the anointing all over him when he sings and you feel it. Alexis can sing but that’s it. I don’t feel the anointing when she sings. I just don’t. Joshus definitely should win. I will purchase both their music as well as the Pastor and the guy from Canton, Mississippi. The final 6 were all great!

One important issue is that when you’re searching for a student loan you may find that you’ll want a cosigner. There are many conditions where this is true because you will find that you do not have a past credit ranking so the loan company will require that you’ve got someone cosign the money for you. Great post.
