WWJD - The Choir Rehearsal
« on: November 04, 2005, 09:30:52 AM »

Last night’s choir rehearsal was a hot mess! We have 3 faithful musicians and 1 (I might be there and I might not) drummer. I play piano and a married couple plays keyboard and bass guitar. We don’t have a director or MOM and the 3 of us pick, teach the songs and leaders, etc. In other words we’re musicians/directors. Here’s the problem. Our Pastor and Wife’s 10th Anniversary is coming up Nov 13th, and we (the musicians) have been working on new songs for this special occasion. A good friend of our first lady, who I’ll refer to as Ms. Thang, approached me last Sunday and said she had a song for Pastor’s Anniversary and she had already picked out a leader. Now the leader she picked has been to choir rehearsal/church about 2 times in the last 6 mos (because of his job).  I responded okay; but the musicians are already working on songs for the Anniversary.  After church who pulls up in my drive, MS THANG, armed with CD of the song she wanted the choir to sing. Now at this point, I’m about to go MADEA on her, “peace be still”.  I played the CD but I could not tell you one word the artist sang, the tune or even who the artist was (I heard it but I didn’t hear it – LOL).  Last night we practiced on the songs we (the musicians) had prepared. Afterward, I tried to introduce another song to them that we were going to try after the Anniversary Program and MS THANG shut me down, preceded to tell me if I’m going to sing the song, I need to get it together, where’s the words at, where’s the CD? piece please be steal”.[/

MS THANG is still running her mouth and I  have no idea what she is saying when I say loudly in the mic, “Musicians we need to take control”. B4 practice ended MS THANG goes to her vehicle and brings in guess what – THE CD. She begins to play the CD and tell errbody that she had picked out a leader and SHE has the words written down. Now mind you the song I was presenting only had 3 lines for the choir to sing, “already done enough, already, and done, done did it”) Kiki Sheard’s “Done Did It”.  Any wazzzzz, my body is rocking back and forth by now, my earrings are off (just kidding ‘bout the earrings) but needless to say, it’s time for me to get out of the kitchen, cause it's hot and the heat is coming from me. I go to the bathroom and after prying my right hand fingers open from my clinched fist (not really) but the old woman in me was about to come out.  I threw some water on my face, jumped up and down a couple of times shaking my shoulders like I was about ready to enter a boxing ring, then shook it off. Y’all know I’m exaggerating, but I was upset.  I come out of the bathroom and MS THANG’s CD is still playing. Politely I stick up one finger (in my mind) like MADEA and tip top to the piano, get my personal things, leaned over and whispered to the President. I’m leaving, see you next week. When wut I really wanted to do was turn over some pews, instruments and what ever was in my way; but I’m grand-ma age (even though I get mistaken for a teenager all the time - yeah right)  :wink: and had second thoughts about hurting myself (lol). This monirng I keep asking my self what would Madea uh I mean Jesus do? Seriously, how would you handle this situation? Even Christ was angered and turned over tables. I try to live so I always exalt Christ, equip the saints and evangelize sinners but last night I wanted to Eject a Sister.  :D Sorry this was so long; I needed to vent.[/color]

If I Were You.... I would go to the first lady in a non judgemental, angry way... and explain to her the unprofessional way that her friend carried on... Let her know that you already spoke to her and what you told her... Also let it be known how she disrupted your rehearsal.... Also apologize for leaving the rehearsal and for being upset but let her know that you didn't want to saying anything out of the way to her... Don't forget to explain to her your plans for the anniversary without giving away the surprises... Oh yeah I almost forgot

PRAY THAT GOD WOULD KEEP MADEA IN A CHOKE HOLD WHILE YOU DO THIS!!!!!!

I believe we all have a lil Madea in us.. But sometimes she shows her face at the wrong Dag on Time... LMBO!!!!!

LOL, and yes you're right Nakia, I was convicted last night that I should apologize to the choir for leaving like I did. But I thinking now 1st Lady may have been the culprit behind the whole scene, you'd have to know her. Ooops there's that Madea coming out of me again. ROTFL

Why isn't there a person in charge of the choir?(MOM).
I think this is why you have a problem.  If there were a specific person in charge,  then this lady(Ms. Thang) wouldn't be coming up to rehearsal to tell you what to sing or what not to sing.

My suggestion is go to the pastor and tell him the situation.

Yes people can make you lose all your religion, but take it up with your leader of your church before it gets more out of hand.

I totally agree, we NEEDZ a MOM. I am seriously thinking about talking to the Pastor and even suggesting a handbook. Thanks!

OH WOW!  So in a round about way....the lesson in this is that I need to apologize to the choir for acting ugly and leaving Wednesday night?

OK GOD!  I get it!
