WELCOME TO THE BATTLE OF THE BANDS!!!
Our battles take place twice a month: on the 1st and 15th.
The results come six days later: on the 7th and 21st. That's
when I return, total all of the votes, including mine
(if necessary), and announce the winner.
This music blogging event first introduced by our friends
and I'd like to give them a heartfelt "thank you":Fae @ Far Away Eyes
Stephen T. McCarthy presents...
Oh, I'm fully in the Christmas spirit now - ready or not, it is upon us! One of the joys of the season for me is a Live Nativity we are doing at my church. Two friends and I created the first production last year and we're at it again. This time, I'm happy to say we worked out a lot of the tough issues about staging and doing an outdoor presentation last year, so I'm ready to do this!
Here's some pictures from last year:

So, what does that have to do with the last Battle of the Bands of 2015?
This battle is between some old favorites as they do their rendition of Amy Grant's Christmas favorite, "Breath of Heaven." For this special edition, there's FOUR contenders!
THE ORIGINAL: AMY GRANT
How about this same song from a man's point of view? Vince, will you do the honors?:

A little more acoustic for you? Melissa, take it away...
