This weekend I had the singular privilege to see one of the greatest singers of my generation performing live: Kristin Chenoweth.
She was here performing at the gala opening of our grand old theatre and it was magnificent. I thought it was going to be something serious where she came out in a lovely ball gown or something to sing songs. I couldn’t have been further from the truth. During the first song, she smacked the ass of the conductor. I knew it was going to be downhill from then on. She’s funny and naughty (not raunchy) with a voice that is just as amazing to hear live as it is on CD.
But for me the best part of the night was when she brought two guys up on stage, presumably to talk about their charity organization. It quickly turned into a marriage proposal which I thought was a beautiful thing, even though gay marriage isn’t legal in this state.
Kristin also took the time to express that she is a NALT Christian. The “engagement” that happened on stage was reportedly her third. And then she went on to explain her position on homosexuals: “I can’t imagine how I’d feel if I was told that being 4′-11″ was a sin. I mean this is the way God made me!” On the Wikipedia article, she’s reportedly described as a “non-judgmental liberal Christian.”
I love Kristin Chenoweth!!
