I must say from the outset that this was a very enjoyable video - the one hour of watching just flew by. It really shows the quality of the performer that Randy can hold a packed audience in the palm of his hand with only himself and an acoustic guitar. The deftest of communicators knowing the balance between singing, talking, joking and being serious, Randy's spiritual insights are very real while his funny one-liners reminded me of Robin Williams. Within the video there were also tributes from other Christian artists such as Amy Grant and Gary Chapman but mainly it was the man and his music. He has a message to tell both of a social and spiritual gospel and through his music he truly conveys this message. I liked the mixture of songs from rhythm and blues, jokey songs and numbers that hit home with the incisiveness of a surgeon's knife, such as "Can Hell Burn Hot Enough". This is a good collection of material which I highly recommend.
