24-7 Rise Up CCO (Parody of Bruno Mars’ 24K Magic)

“I’m a youth minister, got no money in my pocket!”
 
Here’s the opening to my talk at CCO’s Rise Up Conference last December: it’s a parody of Bruno Mars’ “24K Magic”.
 
Thanks to Sheena June, Rebecca Bilodeau, Joseph San Jose, Matt Vetter, Jason McBurney, and Andrew Maledy for helping me out with this – some of their facial expressions are hilarious…especially Joe’s.
