The music at Downtown Church isn’t ordinary by church standards. For example, the last two weeks selections from Roxette, Steve Winwood, and Green Day made it into worship. So far, we’ve only explored the possibility of blending popular music with a worship environment. We haven’t yet attempted to mix genres. But the day will come when our House DJ “Bobby Sweatt” is setting a back beat for Joyful, Joyful, We Adore Thee.
If you are wondering what happens when you mash-up musical forms that normally wouldn’t be caught in the same room together, take a look at what Vicks Australia did in the commercial below. Somehow (an abundance of talent helps), music was made in an unlikely collaboration between beatboxers and a chamber choir.
