BEATBOX BATTLE WILDCARD – JULIA DALES

O.M.G. I just found out that the winner of the YouTube search for the Beatbox Battle World Championship Wildcard is Julia Dales!!! A FEMALE!!!! In my original post about the Wildcard battle on YouTube, I expressed disappointment that I couldn’t find any female competitors. And look at that. A woman won! Haha, that’s funny. Here’s her winning audition video:

I actually don’t think she was the best, though. I really liked Ammar and totally think he should have won. He has original beats, which is so much more creative than spitting beats from mainstream songs. If they wanted someone who replicates songs, then I think they should have picked Daichi. He was definitely better than Julia. But still, congrats, girl. It’s always nice to see women advancing in the world of hip hop.

Hillsong United – “Soon” Lyrics

Such a beautiful song of hope and anticipation of what we children of God have to look forward to experiencing. Come, Lord Jesus, come. And please come SOON!

“Soon”

Soon and very soon
My King is coming
Clothed in righteousness
And crowned with Love
When I see Him I shall be made light again
Soon and very soon

Soon and very soon,
I’ll be going
To the place He has
Prepared for me
Then I stand amazed
My sin forgotten
Soon and very soon

Chorus:
I will be
With the one I love
With unveiled face I’ll see Him
Then my soul
Will be satisfied
Soon and very soon

Soon and very soon
See the procession
The angels and the elders
‘Round the throne
At His feet I lay
My crimes, my worship
Soon and very soon

(chorus)

Though I have not seen Him
My heart knows Him well
Jesus Christ, the Lord, the Lord of Heaven

(chorus)

Soon and very soon

Soon and very soon
