Seattle, WA (PRWEB) July 13, 2012
The Universal Life Church Monastery reports that Scott Underwood, drummer for the San Francisco based band Train, became legally ordained online on June 20, 2012 through their website and plans on performing wedding ceremonies and vow renewals during Train’s California 37 Tour. Every ceremony will occur onstage during the award-winning pop group’s set and be followed by a performance of “Marry Me”, a single from their Gold certified album Save Me, San Francisco.
Train has invited couples to e-mail them with a three minute video explaining how they met and their special connection to Train. Winners of this contest will receive additional tickets to distribute to family and friends and limited edition t-shirts made to mark the occasion.
Rev. Underwood joins a number of other entertainers who have used their ordination to perform high-profile, legally-recognized wedding ceremonies. Professional skateboarder and reality TV star Rob Dyrdek officiated his sister’s wedding using ULC materials and sitcom star Fran Drescher got ordained to perform three weddings for the winners of her “Love is Love” contest. Comedian Conan O’Brien performed television’s first gay wedding in New York City’s Beacon Theatre with his Universal Life Church ordination.

In addition to online ordination, this site also features a catalog for minister supplies, a marriage law database, and a number of articles about how to perform weddings and other religious ceremonies.
