Heather United States
very embarrasing. birth......day? ouch. sorry, i couldn't have done any better though
1/8/2010 5:24:17 PM
Cheryl United States
NO - I call that thinking on your feet and doing a very good job of adlibing when necessary.  I couldn't have done something like that.  WAY TO GO on being creative and showing that you can't be beat-up!
1/8/2010 5:24:22 PM
Tami United States

I think it would probably be embarrassing. I would have done horrible. But I think you did a pretty good job for coming up with it on the spot.
1/8/2010 5:30:23 PM
Tori United States
ah, i thoguht it was sweet!  and honestly Scott, it's not as bad as having to freestyle infront of a bunch of highschoolers.  trust me, I know.  im sure Toby was proud of you.
1/8/2010 5:30:24 PM
Colleen United States
If it anyone else I'd say yes so embarrassing. But after hearing you I change my vote to No. Listen to Kelli you were good. It was really sweet to rap about ur girl esp. after wearing a pink shirt for her. Give yourself more credit.
1/8/2010 5:31:05 PM
I would be mortified! Yes embarrassing! Way to think on your feet though
1/8/2010 5:31:30 PM
Cassie United States
I would have been really embarrassed and probably couldn't have done it, but you sounded really good!!
1/8/2010 5:31:47 PM
Laura United States
Scott I think that the Mandisa/lipstick episode was way more embarrassing than the rap.. besides. it was TobyMac that asked you.. that should be considered an honor!
1/8/2010 5:32:04 PM
Maggi United States
I would like to make a suggestion.

I think Scott should upload a video of himself dancing, so that we can vote on whether or not he made the right choice to free style.

How embarrassing can it possibly be? If you're dancing for the Lord it shouldn't matter. Smile
1/8/2010 5:33:15 PM
Rhonda United States
NOT - you did great!
1/8/2010 5:33:32 PM
Melody United States
I have to say, that sounds pretty embarrassing.

Very cool that TobyMac called you up on stage.

But still, quite embarrassing.
1/8/2010 5:33:36 PM
andrea United States
thats not embarassing thats sweet  and plus you are a really good rapper.thats good for a made right there rap
1/8/2010 5:34:11 PM
Sharaya United States
No Scott, this is embarrassing- I sing in a Catholic choir but I'm not Catholic so I'm not really familar with all of the traditions. During Easter (which of course means there's more people than usual, like over 1,000) they sprinkle the holy water on the people. I wasn't aware that they sprinkle the choir as well, so when the guy in the white robe (deacon I think) flung that water at me (very hard too I must say, I'm suprised that the gold stick didn't fly out of his hand and hit me in the face)I was so shocked that I jumped back with my hands in the air and tried to stiffle a shreik because one: I was in church and two: there was a microphone right in front of me!
1/8/2010 5:34:52 PM

Margi United States
We all have insecurties and going in front of an audiance is one most people have. What you did said alot about you as a person of God. You raised your wife up as a person you treasure and showed you are not afraid to do things for your wife. You did a wonderful job. Even though you think you didn't. I think alot of us wifes wish we had husbands like you.

It's embarrassing to be called up and be put on the spot, but YOU did not embarrass yourself! :o)
1/8/2010 5:38:00 PM
Colleen United States
Yeah but it wasn't a restaurant full of people it was you singing (Rapping) to her. Toby wouldn't have chosen you if he didn't think you could do it.
1/8/2010 5:39:56 PM
Sekquiree United States
Not embarrassing at all. Hey you took  a step of faith and you did it! Keep it up.... God Bless you! Smile
1/8/2010 5:39:57 PM
Hannah United States
I'm going to say yes and no. Yes, because I know how incredibly embarrased I would be. No, because you did a great job Laughing
1/8/2010 5:40:02 PM
Jim United States
You did a great job of it.  But yes, I would have been very embarrassed.  I would have [not so gracefully] declined.  I feel for you, man.  I hait those situations.  But then I wouldn't dare talk on radio either.
1/8/2010 5:40:23 PM
Candice United States
You are a brave soul.  I commend you for stepping up.  It was comical, but no need to be embarrassed.  It was all in fun.

Leslie United States
Embarrassing?  Maybe a little ... but to be called up onto stage with TobyMac?  That's an honor, plus you blessed your wife with a birthday rap Smile  How cool is that?!
1/8/2010 5:46:49 PM
Cristina United States
I'd say yes emberrassing if it were me up there i would of probably cried but hearing it from the audience point of view it was both funny and sweet at the same time my husband is a gospel rap artist in Phoenix,AZ he is signed on to our youth pastors record label and even though he is a rap artist he is not much of a free styler but God Bless him he tries he does a pretty good job at time but some times i laugh and well one night in the drive home from church he rapped a song for me completely off the spot and I recorded it on my phone and i have it as his ringtone when he calls me il let it play enywhere we go he is a little emberrassed by it but since he did it just for me i Love it so i hope your wife was both laughing but touched at the same time God Bless

Feelings are personal.  To tell someone they weren't embarassed is discounting their feelings.

The goodness or badness of the act has nothing to do with it.

Passing gas is a normal human function.  Passing it in a crowded room might be embarassing.

Saving someones life is a good thing, but one can be embarassed by the praise or publicity generated by it.

So Scott, go ahead and be emabrassed, but also know you did a good job!
1/8/2010 5:48:31 PM
Rachel United States
embarrasing!!! and a pink shirt?
1/8/2010 5:48:40 PM
Darla Cowen United States
Darla Cowen
this is absolutely embarrassing (probably for his wife as much as for himself) I would have been extremely embarrassed if that were my husband up on stage like that. Congrats to you for being able to overcome the embarrassment and perform.
1/8/2010 5:48:55 PM
Jeni United States
I would say.....Yes, Very embarrassing. Maybe not if you were in a cozy room with 15 or 20 of your closes family and friends but in front of 700 people... give me a break !! I would be upset!
1/8/2010 5:48:57 PM
Sam United States
I would probably do it, and I would like it while im doing it, but then I don't know if i would live afterward

so my vote is both
1/8/2010 5:50:34 PM
Terrie United States
It was better than anything I could of come up with but if I were you, I would deffinitely keep my day job!

Violet United States
Dear Scott, I have been listening at work, I would have been so honored to have had my husband rap for me in front of that many people, pink shirt or not.  Don't ever be ashamed to honor your wife she is your lady and I am sure she is proud of you.  God Bless Violet
1/8/2010 11:01:16 PM
Rebecca United States
I don't think it would be Embarrassing. For me, it would take a little bit for me to get use to the 700 other people but I would be fine.

1/8/2010 11:06:06 PM
Ashley United States
That's awesome that you would do that! Not embarrassing at all! Especially for something like freestyle rap!
1/8/2010 11:06:17 PM

COOL MOVIE!!!!   I cant understand a word, the beat was great man, goes to show Toby can make anyone sound good!  

1/8/2010 11:06:56 PM
Christie Laird United States
Christie Laird
I think you were brave and that would have taken alot in me to do something like that. But think how you can look back and just laugh about it! And as much as pink isn't seen real masculine color, think of how you are breaking that great boundary of being you and unique. But you sounded quite good!
1/8/2010 11:07:20 PM
Jacob United States
It could have been worse.  
1/8/2010 11:07:21 PM
Christina United States
Scott, I think you have some CRAZY MAD SKILLS! You should take that rap on the road...NOT!!! ROLF. It was cute tho.

As long as you had fun and you fear God you shouldn't be embarrrassed. In ecclesiastes 5:7 it states, "Talk is cheap, like daydreams and other useless activities. Fear God instead." You have nothing to worry about as, life is short and go with the flow. So it seemed embarrasing but you were living your life. At least you were bold enough to even do a rap. Some people are scared to be in front of that many people.
Life is short, live like you are going to die and enjoy every moment of your life. All you can do is laugh at yourself when life gets tough.

Peace and Love,

1/8/2010 11:07:50 PM
Cora United States
I would probably be embarrassed if i knew the people, but hey i think it would personally be hilarious!! and i would be laughing at myself and you should too! Smile and it was seriously really good for on the spot!

Scott, that was the best thing you could do for your wife on her birthday, and even if you are embarrassed, I sure am proud of you!
1/8/2010 11:08:25 PM
Chris United States
Just maybe, you should go on tour with Toby Mac and call yourself Slim Scotty...lol. Great performance for spur of the moment
1/8/2010 11:08:54 PM
Nate United States
Hey Scott man, you'll be alright. I have heard you go through other things that were in my opinion way more embarrassing. You're too outgoing to let this embarrass you. Love ya bro.

1/8/2010 11:09:23 PM
ANANYMOUS United States
i don't think that that is embarassing... but i do think kelli should rap for us.... Good job that was cool

P.S. you would have done better than me!
1/8/2010 11:12:37 PM
Brandon Sweden
no, I don't think you should be embarrassed. Maybe right after you performed it you should just because you're not used to it. But that doesn't mean you should still be embarrassed about it. You did a great job (better than many of us can say we could ever do)...I know I would never be able to stand up and do that at all. So you should be proud, not ashamed. I think it would just be plain awesome to be up there with tobymac anyways. Tong

I'm pretty the sure the blinding stage lights that kept you from seeing the sea of faces made it THAT much easier to grab the mic and do YOUR thang!!
Good job on your 5 second single, Scott!

I would definately say not. Embarrassing would hint at regret to me and I say live life with NO REGRETS!!! If you are willing to get up there of your of free will, then do it with pride! Smile
1/8/2010 11:14:57 PM
Ally Australia
Haha, he did both though, it looked like dancing anyway ;) I agree it was pretty good for being put on the spot, but that doesn't change the fact that it is embarrssing for Scott. Would be soooo embarrassing, sorry they made you do that mate but thanks for the laugh. Laughing
1/8/2010 11:15:52 PM

Not bad for being in front of so many people...I mean you were able to come up with some rhyming lyrics... I wouldn't b able to think under so much pressure...A new start to your new career...I'd buy your CD...

Hey!!!  You did a great job, and I would do anything to rap with the Mac!!!!  What an honor!!!  I bet God was dancing right along with you.  You will always remember that moment Smile

Not at all. I thought it was the most wonderful thing ever. I would have loved to been there to see your wife's face. What a great job you did. Things like that only makes us love our husbands more. Way to go.

Embarrassing? Absolutely! But you are missing the point. It is not about you. By rapping for your wife you made it about her. And embarrassing yourself for your wife is romantic. Well done dude!
1/8/2010 11:21:04 PM
Mary United States
Sooooo embarising.  I did a solo at our church and almost fainted and I had a month to practise.  I could not have done it.  Awesome job though I have to agree with Kelly you were good for spur of the moment.  You should do one now on air. What do you say?  Kelly if he wont then how about you?  I will be listening.

1/8/2010 11:21:14 PM
Bruce United States

I don't think it should have been embarrasing for you. Because you talk (adlib) for MANY MANY listeners every day.

The only difference is that the listeners could see you. But they are your coworkers anyway.

That said, I could not adlib that fast.

You did great!
1/8/2010 11:22:19 PM
GABRIEL J United States
Embarrassing? Not at all. It actually looked planned and well thought out. You know you practiced that before! Don't deny it! So when does your new Freestayle rap CD come out? Smile

I think it would have been more embarrassing if you had awkwardly refused to do it, so props to you! Laughing
Now that's getting out of your comfort zone and growing, I'm impressed.

Totally embarrassing. It doesn't matter how well you did, you had to get up in front of everyone and do it!!!!! I would have been mortified!
1/8/2010 11:30:38 PM
Dianna Canada
I can't understand what you are saying so it is pretty hard to vote.  From what I can tell by watching it and then reading some of the comments you should NOT be embarassed.  I don't think that was Toby's intent, either.  He just wanted you to have some fun and you did!  Way to go - u proved that Christians are normal and have fun!  Smile
1/8/2010 11:30:51 PM

I thought it would be embarrassing, but hey thats my opinion. God gives us all special talents but I think that you did awesome.

Cynthia United States
My kids loved it. My son thought you were TobyMac and my daughter said that you did a good job and that it was nice of you to think of a rap for your wife. Personally, I think it was great. How many people would have the courage to do that? No one should be mocking you at all!!!
1/8/2010 11:35:58 PM

Hey!! Not embarassed at all. You did great!@!!
Please say to Toby that we are waiting for him here in Edmonton, Alberta on his concert!!

Wendy United States
Embarrassing or not???  NOT!

Kiddo, you did it for your wife!!  That's sacrificing pride for someone you love - how cool is that??
(I'm old enough to be your mother, single for 10 yrs, and would LOVE to have someone love me that much and not be intimidated to do that for me!)

Kudos to you, more of us believers should show such boldness in our walks....

Go Scott, wasn't your birthday, Go Scott, wasn't your birtday!!
God bless you, bro'
1/8/2010 11:40:32 PM
Sandi United States
Hey guys! First I wanted to say that Scott, that was really awesome! I think you should do an encore at Spirit West Coast Monterey later this year!
   Secondly, I was trying to call in but couldn't get through....I wanted to comment on your discussion on Nashville/USA coming together to help Haiti. I sponsor a child at the Hands and Feet Project, so this has been VERY close to my heart and I have spend the last week trying to fundraise and do what I can to spread the word. What I think is pretty amazing too is that Duncan Phillips, the Newsboys' drummer, has also pledged to give all profit made at his online store for the next month to the Hands and Feet Project. It's so nice to see other Christian musicians supporting each other and Haiti in this way. The thing unique about H&FP is that they were the first ones to ask the isolated town of Jacmel, Haiti, if they needed help...and because of the support received, they were able to bring in supplies by volunteer pilots who volunteered to use their planes. If it wasn't for them, Jacmel would still have no help.
   To add some good news....Mark Stuart and his wife Aegis arrived back home to the the States today...a bittersweet return for them...but we welcome them home and praise God for their safety and for all they've done in Haiti!

For some reason I was unable to open the file, however, I must say that as a wife I would be flattered.  But as the one standing up to freestyle, I would be very embarrassed!  I am sure you did fine however!  Remember Toby has stated over and over that he himself is not fond of free styling! Smile

dont be embarassed, that was definitely above average.  it took courage to go up on stage in front of all those people, and i would not have been able to do that.  i guess its all up to you, if you are not pleased with the results, then be embarrassed, but if you are pleased with the results, the dont be embarrassed.

Hey Scott! I'm not sure what everyone else is seeing or not seeing, but there's got to be some part of you that's awesome just to step out and do that.  IF YOU NEVER TRY SOMETHING YOU'VE NEVER DONE, YOU WILL NEVER KNOW WHAT YOU ARE CAPABLE OF DOING!!  I still think you're cool and so does God!

Your sister in Christ

You're cool, too, Kelli!

I would say yes Scott embarassing I am sure I would have a hard time doing it. I would have to leave the stage because I would be too neverous and probably forget the words to the song.

Who cares if it was embarrassing (it wasn't by the way), it was a great experience!

I think that that was not that embarrassing  because you knew the people you were rapping in front of. once at a over nignt school trip we were playing bingo and you had to dance in front of everybody. A new kid got a bingo and had to dance in front of everybody and he knew nobody.
I would not be embarrassed about what happened.

NOT EMBARRASING, but, to quote TobyMac(to SCC)"Well I think rap music is most defenitly YOU........NOT!!!!!!" (but you shouldn't really count my vote, i am NOT a person who really can swallow rap, i prefer yours over anything else, except TobyMac....)

I think you did great! I would have not been able to do it. You should be thankful that you were picked out of so many people. To me it would be an honor to be picked. I think is was so sweet to rap about your wife. I listen to ya'll every day. KLOVE keeps me encouraged when I am feeling low. Thanks for all the hard work you do.

Without knowing the story behind why you are up there, it looks as if you are just a really wonderful husband. Able to say "happy birthday" in an unconventinal way. I think that rocks! I'm sure I'd be a bit red cheeked to see my husband up there but, he has no skills.
I think it's WONDERFUL and so-o NOT embarrassing!

After being put on the spot like that, AND THEN to come up with a rap that rimes, DUDUE there's NO reason to be embarrassed!!! HANDS DOWN you should be struting around, proud of being put on the spot, and coming through like you did!! Right Kelli?? Smile

Congratulations, Scott!  I think you did a superb job.  The lyrics of your rap were well-worded despite the fact that you were not given enough time to prepare.  Your wife must have been very happy and proud.  You were able to think on your feet and did a wonderful job!

Elise-I don't think it would make me nervous if I had to do it in front of my friends and family. But if it where for people who I didn't know it would be a little easier for me (sorry elena).
Elena- I think that would be embarrasing if you didn't know the people, but you do because you work with them, right?

I'm not taking the time to view the video (too late already, should be in bed, etc.) however - I agree with the comment about feelings being personal.

Couple of thoughts - I seem to recall Toby's visit in December where he was cajoled into doing a freestyle rap for ugly Christmas sweaters, so perhaps that incident was payback, hmm?!

I probably would have been embarrassed & certainly felt foolish trying to do what you did.  Nevertheless, you were game enough to play along & you survived.  At least it's not something to regret in a negative sense.

So - chin up and know the memory will surely bring a smile & laughs for many people for some time to come.  "Those who can laugh at themselves will never cease to be amused."

You were awesome! But, personally, I would be embarrased to try to do anything on a stage with tobyMac. Just because he's so awesome it would make most anything else sound aughful.
