This past Saturday I had the opportunity to experience the opening night of “An Evening With Selah & Avalon” presented by WorldVision. It was an incredible experience musically, and spiritually. And I was just flat out entertained!! It was a great show all around.
The coolest thing was that it was a last minute addition to the tour and the concert took place at this tiny church in Mobile, AL. The crowd was absolutely insane!!!! I thought that it was neat how well the two artists who are similar in the fact that they are both vocal groups but different because the musical styles are different. Selah is very subdues and more traditional where Avalon is beginning to dip in to the alternative pop/rock side of the spectrum. Even so the groups meshed so well and the show was a MUST SEE!!!!
Here is the run down of what happened.
WorldVision video of Avalon’s trip rolled at the beginning. Next Avalon came out with Selah and they did a song together. Selah did their first set, then Avalon stepped out and did both of their sets back to back with an intermission in between and Selah closed the show. The crowd was so crazy they came back out and did two encores together before ending with “I Love You Lord” with the whole audience.
It was CRAZY!!!!
Here is a list of the songs done.
New Day (Avalon & Selah)
In Christ Alone
Can’t Live A Day
Take You At Your Word/Knockin’ On Heaven’s Door/Wonder Why
Here they only did snippets of each song which were…
Everything to Me
For the Sake of the Call
Light A Candle
(Leave it to someone in Alabama to request a Christmas song in September haha)
You Raise Me Up (Selah & Avalon)
Testify to Love (Avalon & Selah)
As far as Selah’s two sets, I didn’t write them all down so I will do my best to remember what all they did
There Is Power In the Blood
Wonderful, Merciful, Saviour
It Is Well
God Bless the Broken Road
Through It All
(They may have done more than this, but these are the only ones that I can remember)
Here are a couple of photos with everyone. Somehow I ended up not getting a photo with Janna.

And now, to end the post, here is a video montage of some pictures and clips that I took at the concert. I apologize for the low audio quality, but it was REALLY loud in there and I had my camera on the wrong setting, but it will still give you a good taste of what happened. It was AMAZING!!!!
