Every year I look forward to going to the Spirit Song music festival at Kings Island. It’s three days of spending time with friends, riding roller coasters, and going to concerts. I love all of these things by themselves, but when you put them together it’s even more fun!
The music festival is held in an outdoor amphitheater and goes on rain or shine. In past years, I remember singing with friends in the pouring rain. This year, we didn’t have rain, but we had lots of sun (and heat). You know you love music when you’re willing to stand in the pouring rain or in 90 degree heat to see your favorite bands.
This year’s lineup included: Jordan Feliz, Andy Mineo, Jeremy Camp, Casting Crowns, Hollyn, Rend Collective, For King & Country, Toby Mac, Stars Go Dim, Red, Crowder, and Kari Jobe.
One of the things I love about Spirit Song is the wide variety of music. You can be at a rock concert with Red, and then soon after that, you're singing worship songs with Kari Jobe. For someone with eclectic taste in music, this is great.
To recap this year’s Spirit Song, I thought I would give a few awards. Unfortunately, I don’t have any fancy statues/trophies to pass out, so instead I will honor them with a shout-out on my blog. Let the awards ceremony begin…
Most Memorable Moment: David Crowder (Click here to see why)
Favorite Artist: Rend Collective (An extremely talented group from Ireland. Watch their video below. I bet you’ll be singing along by the end.)
Artist Who Surprised Me the Most: Hollyn (She’s young, but so talented. I've been listening to a lot of her songs the past few days. Check out a video below.)
Breakout Artist: Jordan Feliz (Jordan sounds just as good live as he does on the radio. Check out his video below. His song, "The River," has been stuck in my head for weeks.)
Most Fun To Watch: Toby Mac (A little bit of hip-hop, rap, and pop music all mixed together.)
Favorite Worship Set: Kari Jobe (Beautiful voice!)
That concludes our awards ceremony. Spirit Song 2016 was amazing! I'm already looking forward to next year!
I'm an ordinary introvert who loves an extraordinary God.
