Worship leader passes out on bridge

Church Life

Worship leader and guitarist Jamie ‘Jed’ Delacruz passed out on stage whilst singing the bridge of the lit worship song “What a beautiful name”:

You have no rival, You have no equal
Now and forever, Our God reigns
Yours is the Kingdom, Yours is the glory
Yours is the Name, above all names

Bass player, ‘The Big D’, stated, “We were rocking that bridge and were only on the 27th time through when Jed sorta went white and fell over.  At first I just thought he’d seen Jesus and fallen at his feet as though dead, just like John did in Revelation.  But dead people don’t usual vomit which kinda confused me.”

Fortunately, Paramedics were called to the scene while the bass player’s brain was working over time to make sense of the situation.

Jed was hooked up to oxygen and soon recovered but was taken to hospital for observation.

Paramedic Dave Andrews explained the situation, “We see this kind of thing all the time.  It’s a combination of passionate singing, dehydration and lack of oxygen.  He’ll recover just fine.”

Vocalist, Jenny, added, “This just goes to show the importance of proper breathing. Even a professional worship leader like Jed can forget his training when carried away in a stonking bridge.”

It’s not the first time such drama has occurred at the Real Agape Warehouse church.  Only last year their lit worship led to third degree burns

This has led to calls from the worship pastor to restrict the number of times that bridges can be played in future.

Drummer ‘Baz’ downplayed the need, “It’s all unnecessary. Jed’s fine and the congregation didn’t even notice because they were lost in worship.”

However, critics claim that the fog machine was the real reason the congregation were oblivious.  And it was only because the paramedics had torches that they were able to get to the prostrate worship leader in time.
