“The Words I Would Say” (Sidewalk Prophets cover) –
Here’s the story behind why the KUMC Praise band did this song. It begins with 5 year old Harper Claes. She approached the Music Minister, Danton Bankay, and requested the band play it. Not only did she suggest it, she sang it to him. So, the praise band decided to perform it.
FYI Harper is the daughter of Sean and Jodie Claes. Sean is the singer in the red shirt in this video. He had no clue Harper knew the song and was surprised when it came up.
The KUMC Praise Band on 10/28/12 was:
Danton Bankay: keys/vocals, Brad Johnson: bass, Kevin Brown: guitar, Jennifer Johnson: Drums/vocals, Lisa Hall: vocals, Sean Claes: vocals
