"I always think these traditional stories retain a lot of charm," said another of the rabbits, "especially when they're told in the real, old-fashioned spirit."
"Yes," said Strawberry, "Conviction, that's what it needs. You really have to believe in El-ahrairah and Prince Rainbow, don't you? Then all the rest follows."I think of that when I see secular audiences so excited about gospel music. I wonder if they are getting the message or just looking at specimens. I strongly suspect the latter. Not just the judges, but the audience as well. Do they hear praise, or just that old, authentic style?
I worry that for the singers as well. It's so easy to lose one's way.
