I write and perform a variety of music, but I especially love to write praise and worship songs...something that has eternal value!
Yes...I led praise and worship at my church for almost 24 years! Special moments would be leading praise and worship at the Billy Graham Training Center...and winning second place in CBN's National Songwriting Conference, being invited to The White House to play and sing, and getting to play for one of my idols growing up, Mr. Cliff Barrows, of The Billy Graham Team.
My musical influences growing up were artists like Ray Charles, Dionne Warwick, Elvis, Frank Sinatra...(Well...I am over 50!!) And I loved anything Mahalia Jackson sang!
I am a Korg and Alesis user!!
I've come to the stage of my life where I've tried to beat all the doors down and tried every gimmick in the book. I've read the "how to" books, and listened to the tapes. You name it. I'm now in the phase of my life where I still believe for the impossible, but I'm content to use my "gifts" to bless the people around me or wherever the Lord sends me. Bottom line is a love to write songs and I love to play and sing. I'm not as good as a lot of people out there...but I do okay!! My objective is to listen for "that still small voice and to act on what He tells me to do!
