In 2010, Ryan Higa was #4 at $150,000, Australian Natalie Tran pulled in over $100,000. Not enough to stereotype Asians on Youtube as much as African Americans in music and comedy yet, but getting there.

Antonio girls play “Blessings” by Laura Story on Mother’s Day 2011

I was researching Laura Story’s recent #1 Christian contemporary hit “Blessings” when I ran across these girls. I know the dad who is probably playing the piano and did the arrangement must have put in a lot of time with the girls to pull this off. Believe me I’ve tried to do much simpler things with my boys.

Two girls have wireless face microphones and sing as well as play their string instruments. They are Filipino, who says only Chinese push, er, encourage their kids to do stunts like this?

These are the girls:
Eldest is Gabrielle Antonio (14yrs. old)playing violin
Giselle Antonio is the cellist (10yrs. old)
Youngest is Gweneth Antonio 8 yrs. old on violin

Glee Delights, Horrifies Christians

I can’t speak for all christians (nor can that guy who flipped out in Norway), but as Asian Christian who loves a good musical and popular hits, the cast of Glee does a terrific job musically. On the other hand there’s a lot that’s just not suitable for the tween crowd that naturally graduates to such material from “High School Musical”. Kurt and his pal who isn’t gay but plays one are wonderful talents even if they are put into edgy situations, but to be completely fair, things Christians generally frown on seem to be widely distributed across a broad range of flawed characters from Sue on down, though I do have a hard time seeing any that guys are on as many missions to destroy their friends/enemies like “Desperate Classmates” as any number of the girl characters.

What I DO have a problem with is when it’s open season on one group with onesidedly negative caricatures. When they finally introduced a Christian choir, they performed a hideous made up song and set them up with a choir leader who is an obvious cross between the worse parodies of Sara Palin and “I am not a witch” Christine O’ Donnell. As one who has participated in and on occasion got to lead what we call a “worship team”, some of the most popular radio stations even in ultra-liberal Seattle are the Christian stations (In Boise, you get country christian, rowdy christian, catholic plus contemporay and Mormon cable TV) and I know many kids who won’t listen to stuff on “mainstream” or urban programming. A lot of country, soul and rock talent (not to mention K-pop stars like Clara Chung) got their start in churches. Christians need to stand and complain as much as any other group when they get slammed and treated worse than other Americans because of what instead of who they are.

These are MY radical demands in case this message ever hits the folks who produce Glee:

* PLEASE DO NOT EVER perform fake christian music. Do what they do with everything else they cover – Pick a really good, really popular song, and do a really good job that does it justice. Amazing Grace as performed by Tomlin would be a good start.

* Introduce a Christian character. After all they have multiple jewish characters, and at least Kurt has rejected God at least temporarily. Seattle already has lots of girls in its schools who wear Muslim-approved attire if they really want to go diverse.

* I would think that Brittany is impressionable enough to unusual beliefs such as Santa Claus that she might be a good character to become “born again” and give the other kids even more reason to wonder “what’s up with her?” and start a prayer group at the school which might be a good starting place for a story, and be put into situations where individuals are put between being true to their beliefs and getting along with what everybody else is doing.

Some Christians do push a bit hard, but at the core Christians are really told that even though God made it possible for people to want to do all sorts of things, just because you can do something doesn’t mean it’s a always a good idea. Just because somebody else does something doesn’t mean it’s something you have to do. Anything that has to do with keeping other people from doing whatever they want is really going beyond what the first Christians when they first spread the Gospel so it’s unfair to characterize all Christians as a public nuisance by definition.

* The other angle for the sake of statistics is that a large part if not most of the Korean Americans are Christian such as the Seattle Community Church in Bothell that sponsored the United for Japan Concert and supplied all those stage lights and smoke with they use for their contemporary services, though you’d never know it from their “parallel Asian world” that their Asians are placed in. There are churches that specialize in Christians of every Asian ethnic group, and also “international” churches like the one I’ve been going to.

* Treat every character and group with respect. No one deserves to be completely one-sided, though Sue (and Nazis) are pretty darn close to that and she’s great for that. We don’t need hatred of Christians or even odder sects like Mormons (ironically mostly from OTHER Christians) like some people used to or still hate Jewish people in the name of Social Justice(TM). Good and bad need to be distributed evenly and believably throughout across all genders, sexual identities, age, races and political affliations.

Thank you for listening.
