The warmth and friendliness of David Miscavige is what struck Vince Hurley, keyboardist of the Jive Aces, Britain’s Got Talent semifinalist
In a video on the David Miscavige website, Jive Aces pianist Vince Hurley describes what struck him most about the Scientology ecclesiastical leader. And it’s the warmth and friendliness of David Miscavige.
“One thing I noticed about meeting Mr. Miscavige was just how friendly he was,” said Hurley. “And how he was interested in everyone.”
Hurley describes how David Miscavige was speaking at a huge international event for the Church of Scientology. Yet he took the time to come over and thank the band personally.
“I met him as part of the group,” he says. “Obviously, I’m performing with the band. And I remember when we were performing a concert—a big concert that the Church was putting on and Mr. Miscavige was there. He was speaking at the event. And he took the time to come and say hello. He took time to come and say hello to all of us individually. Shook all of our hands. And you could really feel the warmth and friendliness. The fact that he really was interested and cared about what we were doing.
David Miscavige invited the band to record an album at the Church’s studio
“Mr. Miscavige invited us to go and record at the L. Ron Hubbard Studio in America,” says Hurley. “And it’s such a beautiful studio for the Church of Scientology and so much care has been taken to put that together. It was just an amazing thing for the band. And yeah, we got to produce an amazing album and it’s helped us get to where we are now.”
Mr. Miscavige put together a course that the band got to study
Hurley describes how Mr. Miscavige gave the band the opportunity to do a very special course. And it turns out Mr. Miscavige put together the course. It included references that L. Ron Hubbard wrote about music and performance and art.
“We got to study this stuff,” he says. “And it really did change and improve a lot of things we were doing. It really helped the band to consolidate the art of what we were doing. And we’ve really taken off from there.”
