MILLERSVILLE, Pa., September 25, 2012 – As the sun goes down on Clipper Magazine Stadium on Thursday, September 27, before the first pitch is thrown and before the Lancaster Barnstormers take on the York Revolution, members of the Gospel Choir at Millersville University (GCMU) will take the field.
Preceding the national anthem, at 6:45 p.m., the GCMU will be unveiling its salute to America with the unbelievable heartfelt anthem “I See a Land.” A video, which was professionally produced to accompany this anthem, will also be debuted, serving as the backdrop while members of the GCMU perform.
While the imagery featured in the video represents America and patriotism, the theme “I See a Land” is centered around, it also portrays Lancaster County – from farm land to Amish culture.
Local collaborators who worked on this project with the GCMU include Jerry Buescher, of Holtwood, Pa., who wrote the anthem “I See a Land” and produced the video; Koldasee, a local band whose music is featured on the video; along with staff members from Millersville University, whose time and effort made this project possible.
Currently under the direction of Kiheem Bynum, of Lancaster, Pa., one of the groups own members, the GCMU is a non-denominational student organization that accepts membership without regard to race, creed, religion or ethnic background and whose purpose includes spreading the word of God through gospel music to all campus and community organizations.
Once unveiled, the song and video will be made available for purchase. Copies may be obtained by contacting Deb Miller, of Millersville University, at Deb.Miller@millersville.edu. A portion of proceeds will benefit the GCMU and the James Buescher Memorial Scholarship fund at Millersville University.
