Torrence’s Take on Sunday Best 6: Episode 5

022 #605-Sunday Best

Sorry, this is a little late but planes, trains and automobile have had me going! So let’s go!

Jonathan Nelson opened the show with one of my favorite songs of the year “Finish Strong.” I’ve decided this is my unofficial theme of this season of Sunday Best! Ha! Now let’s get into these contestant performances shall we?

Tasha Page-Lockhart – “We Acknowledge You” by Karen Clark Sheard

What can I say about this performance that wasn’t already said? It was pretty much perfect. Tasha came out there and bodied that performance in less than a minute! Sheesh!

Tyler Little – “Walkin’” by Mary Mary

This dude’s voice is sooooooooooooooooooo sick!!!!! Like, did you hear that? He’s like a modern day Sam Cook or something. What in the world???? Whew, sing fool! I did notice some nervous tics though. He tightens up in his shoulders and doesn’t let go, and whenever he “feels it” he goes “yes Lord.” But I’m nitpicking at this point. That boy bad!

Paula Champion – “Lift Jesus” by Kim Burrell

We keep using the same word to describe Paula because it’s true. She is SMOOTH! It’s so fun and interesting to hear her interpret songs, because she always finds a way to add a smooth jazz flair to it, to songs you don’t even know when can be sung that way!

Odell Bunton, Sr. – “I Give Myself Away” by William McDowell

Odell cheated!!! You can’t bring all that Holy Ghost on stage and then expect me to have something to say afterwards! Jeez! But seriously, aside from that Odell has such a sincere voice and special delivery of a song. He’s not just a singer but he’s a communicator. You feel him when he sings and you definitely had to feel him in that performance.

Joshuia Drumm – “Here I Am To Worship” by Everybody

Joshuia did a really good job. I could tell he was trying really hard not to rush the song and I think he managed not to do that. And something about that ending I just loved.

Terrill Hall – “Best Days Yet” by Paul Morton

This was a tough one because Terrill is a beast and sings his face off but I think in his zeal to show his skill in the arrangement he may have overwhelmed the song and the judges. Too much song for too little time but it’s not as if he did a bad job. He YET sang! But the complexity of the arrangement and all the notes and “specials” he set up in the song were just too much.

Jamel Lewis – “You Are The Living Word” by Fred Hammond

This was probably not a good song to sing because honestly this song has ALWAYS been about the choir/bgv parts. So I feel like Jamel got lost in this song because this is just not a song that you sing as a soloist to get your point across in a competition. I don’t know, just don’t think it was his best. Because like Donnie said, he really does have the goods.

Venold “Junior” Johnson – “He Keeps on Doing Great Things For Me” by LaShun Pace

Junior pitched this song a little too high. I know, it’s Lashun Pace Rhodes and one might want to pitch it close to where she sang it but I was a little distracted by how high it was. But I must say, Junior was able to get through it even with a few sour notes. He did however lose some breath by the end and that’s never really a good thing so I hope as we move forward in the competition Junior doesn’t try to force things to be so high. That dude can sing!

Kefia Rollerson – “Everything” by Tye Tribbett

OMG! Did you see how she walked into the song? That first line of a song can sometimes be the make or break and she MADE IT. Oooh, that intro did me in! They say you learn how good a singer is by how they deal with being hoarse or having a compromised voice. Kefia came to let us know, hoarse and all she knows how to deliver and she did! Loved it!

David Michael – “A Sinner’s Prayer” by Deitrick Haddon

Don’t know what Donnie’s talking about because I think David Michael killed that thing! But seriously, it was so clean but still had grit. (Did you hear that growl?) This very well may have been one of my favorite performances of the night.

So we went from 10 to 8 and I got to say… Well, I won’t say who I think should have gone home but I will say that I don’t think Terrill should have gone home and it burned me up a bit to see him go. There I said it. But what’s done is done.

Your top eight are now:

1. Kefia Rollerson

2. Venold “Junior” Johnson

3. Tasha Page-Lockhart

4. David Michael

5. Joshuia Drumm

6. Tyler Little

7. Paula Champion

8. Odell Bunton, Jr.

What do you think? Who do you think will go home this week?

You can have a discussion about Android tablets vs. iPad without talking about apps. Apps make or break the tablet in my opinion. Having used both operating systems extensively, I will say that, although the iPad certainly has more apps than Android, I have not been disappointed with Android and can find just about any kind of app I can think of. In addition, almost every company that makes an iPad app makes an Android app as well. The Galaxy Tab 2 7.7 comes in 8, 16 and 32 GB variants. A microSD card slot is available which allows you to beef up the storage to up to 32 GB. best cheap 10 inch android tablet

E-reader sales peaked at just under 25 million units in 2011. In 2012, roughly 15 million were sold. Sales of 10 million are predicted for 2013 and, beyond that, sales are expected to dip below the 10 million mark. Of course, whilst there can’t be much doubt that cheap tablets have had some influence on this slowing of sales, it’s also questionable whether the e-reader boom could continue indefinitely. Operating system and manufacturer choice is not solely a matter of subjectivity. Things like customer service, market ecosystem, and how rapid updates and patches are deployed all should play part in your purchase decision. cheap android tablets for kids
