Rodney Atkins Got His Start In The Church Choir [VIDEO]

I have visited many churches over the years and I believe that some of the most talented people are the ones that sing in church choirs.  I often think if they wanted to they could be a successful performer.  Rodney Atkins is proof.

Growing up, Rodney Atkins was part of a very christian family.  His dad led quartets and the church choir.  He often encouraged Rodney to lend his voice to the lord.  After much refusing, he finally agreed.

Around his freshman/sophomore year in high school, he agreed but he had one condition.  He didn’t want his mom to be there.  He only wanted his dad there.  So his parents agreed.

That was the first time his dad had ever heard him sing and he thought he was amazing.  Now all these years later he is singing in front of thousands of people!  From shyness to awesomeness.

Here is a video of his dad talking about his first singing experience.
