Music and worship

"Performing before a vast audience at Ohio State University in Columbus on October 26, 2003, this concert is inspiring and entertaining, and a good introduction to the twenty years of Michael's creativity if like me, you are fairly new to his music.
The musicianship is superb, with Michael playing guitar, keyboards and a piano that is a work of art, painted in swirls of color. His band (I would have liked to name them, but the credits at the end were too small) is excellent, with special kudos to the lead guitarist.

The song list:
~ with band ~
"I Still Have the Dream"
"Wired for Sound"
"Secret Ambition"
"Hibernia" (a delightful instrumental)
~ solo piano ~
"Love Crusade"
"For You"
"Place in this World"
"I Will Be Here for You"
"There She Stands"
~ with band and guest performer Amy Grant ~
"Lead Me On"
"El Shaddai" (an exquisite solo by Amy)
"Thy Word"
~ with band ~
"Above All"
"Agnus Dei"
"Awesome God"
"You Are Holy (Prince of Peace)"
"This is Your Time".
There is a bonus music video of "Signs" at the end.
total running time 93 minutes.
As far as the sound is concerned, one has to take into consideration this is "live", and the DVD has better audio quality than the VHS.

Movie star handsome and enormously talented, Michael, who his fans call Smitty, just won his third Grammy Award, which he can place next to his 40 Dove awards; a multi-platinum selling composer, singer and musician, he is a marvelous performer, and before the final song, he shares some thoughts with us that are wise and wonderful, telling us how "worship is a lifestyle". Though the pop/contemporary genre is not what I usually listen to, I thoroughly enjoy Smitty's music, and this terrific concert."
A great way to celebrate 20 years of music ministry.

"During the fall of 2003, Michael W. Smith commemorated his twentieth anniversary of Christian music ministry with this special concert taped in Columbus, Ohio. This DVD captures a show that delivers many of Smitty's greatest songs of the last two decades. The songs from the 1980's ("Rocketown"/"Wired for Sound"/"Secret Ambition") are my overall favorites, as I began listening to MWS in 1986 with "The Big Picture." I also love the worship portion of the show ("Above All"/"Agnus Dei"/"Awesome God"/"You Are Holy"). And Amy Grant's guest appearance is another great highlight. The special features include a behind the scenes featurette, plus the conceptual video for "Signs" and a featurette on the making of that video. Altogether, this DVD is a great celebration of two decades of MWS's music and ministry while we look forward to more from Smitty in the future.
Powerful and Uplifting...There aren't enough STARS!!!

"One of the best live performances to ever be captured on a DVD. "Smitty" is in top form performing an array of his hits over his 20 year career. The addition of Amy Grant on songs such as "Lead Me On', 'El Shaddai', and 'Thy Word' are wonderful and add yet another layer of depth to this concert experience. I have come to know "Smitty's" music just over the last few years. I can safely say he is the BEST Contemporary Christian artist of the 20th century! I look forward to another 20 years! God Bless you "Smitty"!"
