Yes we have come to the end of yet another tour of Germany and Switzerland. Just one more show today to end a long week on the road. We are up early this Sunday morning shooting a video for the German animated movie “Animals United”. We are all being shot one by one on a “green screen” which will be later superimposed in to the animation. The movie is a cross between “Ice Age” and “The Lion King” and is about animals taking over the world because the human race has done such a bad job. The soundtrack song is called “Wild vor Wut” a duet with German Superstar Xavier Naidoo which we recorded late last year. The movie was originally slated for around March of this year, but now I believe it’s going to be around Christmas 2010. The version we are doing is from Xavier’s album and is not acappella. We have a version on our German/Swiss “Vocal Play” album that is all vocal. We also have four other songs on the soundtrack that are heard during the movie. “King of the road” (Roger Miller), “Move on up” (Curtis Mayfield), “Splish Splash” (Bobby Darin), and “The Hokey Pokey”. Look out for it later this year.
Last night we headlined at Gospel Kirchentag in Germany for about 5000 people. The Oslo Gospel Choir opened the night with heartfelt praise and worship. It’s a huge conference that takes place every two years. I must say that those in attendance came to have a good time and so did we! I really enjoyed it. I wasn’t sure if they were going to let us stop singing “Feel it”… we went for about 20 min on that with full energy. The truth is the crowd one! We had to stop. The highlight for me was inviting my cousins David and Tyndale Thomas on the stage in the reprise of “Ready or not” (the final song). They killed it! It was a nice night and very spirit filled.
So one more show tonight in Baden, Switzerland after 5 straight days of working. I’m looking forward to some rest as I’ve had Insomnia for the week. I don’t know why but I’ve had about 10 hours of sleep for the week.
Alright, let’s do it!
Talk to you all later…
Roger, over and out.
