Not a fly on the wall

Fly Leaf was inspired to write a song about human trafficking. Through this song, the band contributed to the fight against this social issue.

Hundreds of people lined up to get inside of Center Stage Theatre on Sat., Sept. 18, at 9 p.m., to hear the powerful singing of Lacey Mosley and the rest of the members from the popular Christian Rock-band Flyleaf.

Flyleaf sang songs from their November 2009 album Memento Mori. As a part of their Unite and Fight tour, the band opened with “Story of the Year.”

Their sophomore album Memento Mori which is the Latin translation for ‘be mindful of death,’ does not have a single bad song on the entire album. What was even more amazing than that was that the band performed just about every song on the album. And, while doing this, they sounded exactly like they do on their album. There was no lip singing, voice over’s or any of the smoke and mirrors some people try to use.

The band opened up with the number seven song on their album, “In the Dark.” They made a truly flashy entrance. It was evident that the light crew put some work into it. Lights of all colors flashed with the music and mood as the band members entered slowly and mysteriously onto the stage.

Mosley spoke about how some of her songs were inspired by human trafficking. Mosley later dedicated the song, “Set Apart This Dream” to the cause. She also gave the crowd instructions on how they could donate anywhere from ten to thirty dollars to World Vision, an organization fighting against human trafficking.

Throughout the entire concert, energy was high. Every move made and every song that was sung, was a definite crowd pleaser.
