CMS 2010: Afternoon Worship with Jonathan Lee

In an effort to FINALLY finish up my CMS 2010 coverage I'll post the remainder of my videos in rapid-fire manner.  They've been up on YouTube for a while and it's about time I posted them here.

The song below is Beautiful King by Jonathan Lee.  We recently started doing the song in our church and it's working out pretty great.

One of the more interesting things about the music is how he promoted it at the conference.  After playing his set, anyone at the conference could walk out to the lobby and pick up a CD called, "The Worship Kit," for free.  On the CD you'd find this song along with 3 others: As White as the SnowPouring It out for You and When the Stars Burn Down.  The cool part is that the CD also included teaching videos, tabs, staff notation and files for PowerPoint, MediaShout and Pro Presenter.  If that's not a great way to promote yourself, I don't know what is.

On the other hand, Jonathan's online promotion skills aren't nearly as formidable.  I was hoping to include links here for more of his stuff but I find couldn't find any links that I felt comfortable posting.  His website is flash heavy and unlinkable, it's not clear whether the YouTube page I found is actually him or just a fan, and the preview clips on iTunes and Amazon are badly cut.  Quite unfortunate.

Nonetheless, his music is great.  Take a listen:



Note that I'm trying a new embedding method for my YouTube videos, so if you're having any problems viewing stuff, let me know in the comments and I'll correct it.
