Gospel singing. Or somethin' like that...

I've seen this video before, but I don't think I ever noticed just how frickin' hilarious it is. The sad thing is: I think he's seriously tryin' to throw down. But at least some people in the congregation got the hell out before it starting getting too ridiculous.

Gotta love black churches. The entertainment value is worth its weight in gold.

Lawd have mercy!

This has to go down as some of the worst singing I've ever, ever, ever, ever, ever heard. Dude sounds like Kem on crack. LOL!

man looks on the outward appearance, but God always looks on the heart. he seems to be singing from the depths of his heart and soul.

KC said...

Damn. We need to pray for your boy, Cyn. Did you see how the old lady got tired of him and left. Apparently, brah didn't the hint.

KC said...

I meant to say he didn't GET the hint!

Andre said...

@ Cyn: I gave myself a headache laughing so hard at this. I don't know how the congregation was about to watch this with a straight face. That was the worst skatting ever.

Duh-dee-dee-dum-dah-da-da-zip-za-zoo-zoo-dah-dee-dee-duh

Hummmmm....

@ Heiress: Uh...really?! Uh...ok. (?) :)

@ KC: I like how that other couple at the end was tryin' to dip out also. I guess there's only so much a person can take. Personally, I think I would've bolted after the whole speaking in tongues thing.

Oh Hamma Shalla Babba...

KC said...

I just watched this video again. Dawg, you gotta check out the expression on the dude sitting down when the lady in red left the room. Priceless!

Andre said...

I checked that out. Too funny for words.

Also, if you listen to when he starts speaking in tongues, one guys laughs at him. This stuff is priceless, I tell you. Priceless!

Joanne said...

Lord, forgive this brotha. For he knows not how to sing. Precious Lord; that was a hot mess.

Cynthia said...

Joanne, are you saying your not gonna buy his CD? hahahaha

Andre said...

@ Joanne: The congregation is just as guilty for this as anybody. What the Hades are they doin' egging him on like that?! They need to fast for 40 days and repent for hyping this fool up.

@ Cyn: I'm actually curious to hear his CD. I could use a good laugh. Do you know where to find it or any of his songs?

GA girl said...

Give it up to Mr. Randy Watson! Yeeeaas!

J. Alex said...

Wait. So this dude was "singing to Andrae Crouch"? Was that before or AFTER Crouch called the cops on him?

Joslyn said...

I'm sorry, but the scatting at the end and all the "bravada" was hilarious. I'm cracking up becuase every time that he turns around somebody sneaks out and the dude starts laughing.

Andre said...

@ GA: "If I failed, if I succeed; you can't take away my dignityyyy."

This brother was as close to a Randy Watson as I can think of.

@ J: Tell me about it. He never explained the context under which he was singing to Mr. Crouch. It's hard to imagine a famed gospel legend like Andrae Crouch taking him seriously if somebody as inexperienced as I can't.

@ Jos: Uh, what does 'bravada' mean? Isn't that a musical term? I'm gonna need for you to quit using all dem fancy college words.

Kim said...

What was the name of the song? Did I miss the hook? Bridge? Melody?

Joslyn said...

Yes, "bravada" is all the shakiness in his voice. I'll call you and sing the difference. Either way, funny clip!!!
