While performing a couple songs in the Downtown Mall this past Saturday, CHoosE was asked to perform for a video that a group of guys were making, following the current “Stuff _____s Say” trend for the iPhone App of the Year, Instagram!
Instagram retweeted the video - and there is CHoosE!
They’ve produced the video, and its gone viral! The video itself has almost 5,000 views in only two days and the Official Instagram twitter retweeted (see right) the video to over 1,000,000 followers!
God is so good and blessed us with this opportunity to minister through this new medium!
Here is the video itself: Its hilarious, especially if you, like me, are an Instagramer!
We make our appearance at the 1:40 and at the 2:29 mark!

For Valentine’s Day, the men of CHoosE decided to give the ladies of CHoosE a treat: a rose and a serenade! Halfway through practice, they announced that they had a surprise for the girls! They gave a rose and box of chocolates to each girl and finished with a performance of an arrangement of “My Girl”. A great Valentine’s Day was had by all!
So, from all of us at CHoosE, we hope you had a wonderful, special, love-filled Valentine’s Day!
Here’s the classic, but ever true, verse:
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.
– 1 Corinthians 13: 4-8
