Michael Tait To Join Forces With Santana

Forefront Records, home of Christian artist Tait, has announced that Michael Tait will be joining forces with legendary guitarist and vocalist Carlos Santana. Tait will be performing vocally for Santana’s upcoming European tour. You can ready the full press release here.

Does anyone else find this troubling? Santana is currently touring in support of his most recent album which is entitled Shaman. That alone should be a warning. In case you are unfamiliar with that word, Webster’s defines it as follows: “A member of certain tribal societies who acts as a medium between the visible world and an invisible spirit world and who practices magic or sorcery for purposes of healing, divination, and control over natural events.” Furthermore, Santana has several songs whose lyrics are obviously inappropriate for Christians to sing.

I wonder why this is being heralded as a great honor for Tait and why people are excited that he has accepted Santana’s invitation. I do not wish to pass judgment on Michael Tait, but I wonder how he can, in good conscience and with the industry’s blessing, accept this opportunity.
