This Little Word of Mine
Church revival is the theme of This Little Word of Mine. The revival will address popular culture's use of the "N" word, and will be staged complete with choir members and a preacher who will perform a live set consisting of video and music mixing. The Preacher will conduct the choir and the choir will respond to comments made in the video clips, prompting the audience to join in and participate as if in church.
