Evrybody Talkin Bout Heavn

This was the premier performance of the Ministry Of Dancing Essenes, Rechabites, Nazarites (MODERN), at a collaboration called Celebrate Dance in 1996. The piece was a part of a medley, and the effort eventually developed into a full-fledged, touring Christian Performing Arts Ministry. This 1st effort, though, represented my 1st time attempting blatantly Christian choreography. This original cast, believe it or not, was mostly (~75%) non-Christian. My friends, in order of appearance, are: (me), Bruce Smith, Mark Groll, Christopher A. Miller, Amanda Wagener, Susan Hedler, Vicki Humpert, Jovita Weibel. The people I hung out with in those days were very creative and talented...and fun. I miss them.<br />

The music is an incredible arrangement of an old American Negro Slave Spiritual song, as are most of the songs from this album. The 1st time I heard it, I was riveted to each moment of the music, in and of itself. The lyrics are derived from Matthew 7:21-23.<br />

Lyrics:<br />
<br />
Everybody talkin' 'bout heaven ain't goin' there.<br />
Oh my Lord.<br />
<br />
Well I read about the streets of gold and I read about the throne.<br />
Not everybody callin' &quot;Lord, Lord!&quot; is gonna see that heavenly home.<br />
Heaven!<br />
<br />
But those who do the will of my God will enter heaven.<br />
If you wanna go to heaven you gotta do more than talk about it.<br />
Do you wanna go to heaven, to heaven, to heaven.<br />
Oh heaven. Heaven!<br />
<br />
Don't you wanna go? I know I wanna go. Don't you wanna go?<br />
<br />
There will come a day when we'll all stand before the throne.<br />
On that day some will say:<br />
&quot;Did we not prophesy in Your name?&quot;<br /&g
