Rats.  It wasn’t Fernando, at least not in person. They’re testing sound while they set up one of the ballrooms for a showcase tonight. Why they chose a Fernando song to do a sound check, I don’t know, but I admire their taste.

 

Back to my stories. After the live song-rating, I caught the last few minutes of a talk by Jim Morgan, the President and CEO of Krispy Kreme Dougnuts, perhaps the world’s finest food. His message was riveting. No slides or visuals, nothing fancy, just even and deliberate life lessons from a man with an abundance of experience. And yes, he brought doughnuts. Mmmmm.

 

The vendors are setting up their displays. Some are missions. Others are services for musicians, like production and promotion. Some of the indies who got good reviews might be stopping by a booth or two. I’m off now to meet with John Styll, the president of this whole GMA thing. He should have much to offer for my story on the economy and its effects on Christian music.
