... he could be in a musical.
that's right, my guy can sing.
not only can he sing, he makes a mean music video.
but before you press play, i should give you a little history behind this video.
at Camp Shetek (where we work in the summertime), there are two main groups of staff: the kitchen girls & the maintenance men. grant's title is head maintenance man. the camp shetek maintenance men are an elite group. believe me, the girl campers swoon over these rugged & sun-tanned boys.
they mow & trim, they drive the jet ski, they'll help your team in the hoccer tournament, they do mail call; they do it all. a few years ago, the maintenance men made a video for some skit night entertainment, and a tradition was born. their music videos have become one of the most looked-forward-to aspects of a week at camp shetek.
the campers love these Men; they admire them, take pictures of them & giggle at all their jokes. basically, the Men are the camp celebrities. i feel privileged to know them & call one of them my husband.
here is your first taste of their work, an adapted rendition of part of your world from the little mermaid, complete with minnesota accents. sit back & watch the maintenance men burst into song as they confess their hearts' true desire.
performed by grant, graham, ryan, & jared
