I love watching music reaction videos. I am not a singer/musician, so I learn a lot about what makes these performers so special, what parts of their performances are difficult and set them apart and I share my enthusiasm for something I love – great music – with other people. Some of my favorite reactors, however, are not vocal coaches, opera singers or other experts – they’re just people like me who enjoy music and share their enjoyment with others.
There are hundreds, if not thousands, of music video reactors. I run across new ones all the time. The reactions I include in my posts are my favorites – both the people and the reactions.
This was my introduction to Gary Valenciano. He has since become one of my favorite performers, especially with his Christian songs. I have provided his performance video and, under it, some of my favorite reaction videos for this performance. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. And be sure to follow the links to Gary’s other performances.
Julia Nilon provides excellent yet impassioned analysis of music videos. She is one of my favorites.
Christi Bovee, also a performer and voice coach, is another favorite reactor.
Rebecca, a self-described ‘passionate Singer-Songwriter/Vocal coach/mentor /impressionist/photographer/creative junkie /self- development love’ describes Gary as a ‘vocal torpedo.’
Sam Scot-Thorne offers entertaining and informative music reactions. He described this performance as ‘Pure Talent, Pure Insanity, Pure Enjoyment!’
Ceci Dover is a Spanish voice coach. Her reactions are fun, interesting and informative. Unfortunately, I don’t understand Spanish (though I LOVE to listen to it, regardless!), but she provides sub-titles.
Beth Roars! offers great insight and entertainment.
“Spain” was written by Chick Corea as an instrumental.
Al Jarreau later added lyrics which Gary then expanded upon.
Other Gary Valenciano Videos
Could You Be Messiah has a wonderful back story. This is a personal and intimate performance; I love it. Gary also wrote a version especially for Morissette Amon, another exceptional singer – one of my absolute favorites – whose performance of this song is mesmerizing.
Take Me Out of the Dark, another song in the same intimate setting.
I Will Be Here / Warrior is a Child originates from the Wish Bus which is always fun.
Make Us Whole Again is a favorite; I listen to it every day.
