Stephen Colbert Sings for Votes

MRC-TV captured video of a Stephen Colbert event in South Carolina where he sang "This Little Light of Mine"  with a gospel choir. Which message does this send? Does this send a Christian message? Or is it much more likely that Colbert is using this Christian song as a typical rock for his character's bottomless pit of self-regard? Perhaps he's just being an entertainer.

The video also features a nice version of the national anthem, although Colbert gets a little goofy with a bass line near the end. Are you charmed or annoyed? Video below:
