Gospel Warrior Kadarius Thomas performs at Aiken High School, Thursday, Feb. 19, 2009, in Aiken, S.C. RAINIER EHRHARDT/STAFF

Last year I followed two high school boys who had a real passion for gospel dance/mime.  They went the whole nine yards with face paint, white gloves and costumes designed by their grand mother.  They spent hours memorizing the moves and somehow found time to be on the football team and study for class.

I also shot video of their performances and interviewed them.  This was by far the most fun I’ve had while shooting video.

Here’s the link to the vid:  Gospel Warriors

Oh, and I absolutely love how many high school students in the background of this picture are resting their heads on their hands.  Can you count how many?   The juxtaposition of Kadarius’ joy and their boredom is pretty funny.
