Warning: graphic images of bad white dancing and off beat clapping

This song is loosely based on a true story. Actually...a couple of true stories thrown together mixed with a healthy dose of exaggeration. It's about what happens when me and my friends go to a church to find that everyone there has lost their "soul"...and not "soul" in the religious sense but in the musical sense. They're all clapping on the white the song states "don't you clap on 1 and 3 ya'll....hit it on 2 and 4". 

So we take it upon ourselves to try to get them back on the beat. It's a silly song and an even sillier video but we had an absolute blast making it. We had some great Nashville comedic talent involved and everyone really brought it!! Thanks to everyone for being a part of this!!!!!

The video was shot over two days...although 95% of it was shot on a single day over the span of really just a few hours with a crew of 2 people. So while it might have some imperfections...I'm really proud of what we were able to accomplish in such a short amount of time. That's just a testament to the professionalism and work ethic from EVERYONE involved. 
I hope ya'll enjoy it!!

Featured Talent:
Jennifer Whitcomb-Oliva, Charletta CJ Jordan, Shelena Walden, Layne Sasser, Chris Pennell, Scott Rice, Mike Baum, Megan Murphy Chambers, Jack Chambers, Lane Wright, John Silvestro, Jo Anne & Eddie King, Rebekah Durham, Greg Templeton, Savannah Somerville, Kenny & TriStan Brown, and Joanna Cotton

Special Thanks to:
Fr. Bill Dennier at The Church of the Holy Trinity, Performance Studios, Inc., Anna Rushmore & Mike Baum for the use of the hallway and Mike's bed, and to Chris Pennell...for EVERYTHING. And a HUGE thanks to Jeri & Craig Sullivan (Mom & Dad) for making everything possible.
