Who Should Win Our To Be Like Jesus Video Contest?

m4265-00-21_sTwo months ago I invited people to send in videos based on one of the songs from our most recent kids’ album, To Be Like Jesus (now available for $6 during our February sale). The best video would receive a $250 Amazon.com gift card.

We narrowed it down to two finalists. The first, Gotta Wait, is from Jonathan Ruth. The second, To Be Like Jesus, is from the Cannon family. I need your help to pick the winner.

To vote, watch both videos and leave a comment letting us know which one you like best (one vote per person). Feel free to elaborate on why you’re casting your vote. If you have kids, you may want to find out which video is their favorite.

The video with the most comments as of 11:59 PM Thursday, Feb. 11 will get the gift card. Thanks for your help!

    #2 gets my vote! I love the clever editing and the use of scrabble letters and writing on the chalkboard to reinforce the main points of the song. It reminded me more of a true music video…very polished! Great job!

    But you might wanna consider a consolation prize, Bob–do you REALLY want to make those cute kids cry?

    I vote for Video #1. They were both great, but I found the scenes in the first one to be quite poignant and heartwarming.

    This was such a fun idea. I vote for number 1. I liked how it demonstrated the attitudes, situations, etc. from the song.

    I will say number 2 was really well done!!

    Two different songs- maybe they both could win. :)
