Glide Annual Holiday Jam

Glide Memorial Methodist Church in San Francisco does an annual holiday music jam to raise money to serve the people of the Tenderloin district. GLIDE is a radically inclusive, just and loving community mobilized to alleviate suffering and break the cycles of poverty and marginalization. So when they celebrate what they do, it’s a joyful and loving event! 

I got invited to sketch along with the S.F. Urban Sketchers. Since it was all on line of course, we exited our Zoom meet up to watch, listen and sketch on our computers. I wanted to try to capture the animation of the singers, so I paid attention to the mouths, lips and teeth. Often the eyes were closed, or almost. Sorry but I was not paying attention to the names of star performers, though I was grooving to the music. I sure would love to be in their choir!
