Listening to the recording of last week to hear what in the world transpired... And i'm laughing so hard cos at the end of the youth service, our senior pastor was leading us in the song "History Maker" and he was singing so much faster to urge us (the worship team and the congregation) to "beat it" (pick up the speed) and he was dancing and asking us to SWAGGER and saying to us, "Hey, i'm 62 years old!" "Swagger! C'mon!" Boy, am I hooting away.

I'm also very amused and chuckling over how my fingers tend to "spasm" or "fall asleep" or something, and i either miss pressing a key on the piano or i play a second too fast and so i throw the tempo/rhythm off.

I also got to experience for the first time from another perspective the kind of impact a synthesizer musician makes as both supporter and also at the forefront during praise and worship. I've been one for the longest time and never could fully appreciate the part played till when the roles were switched.

There's one thing that i'm so thankful for, and that was the freedom released by my youth pastor for me to just be free to release a song! I believe that all the other musicians/singers can and should do that! It's MAD scary but gosh, you REALLY just tune in to God and play out His heart...

And you'll be amazed at the kind of sound that rises up... I know i was.

I've been meaning to tell you this - I loved the song you released! Even though I can't remember it now, I know it touched me then :)

thanks Hannah, that really means a lot to me, more than you know! :) am very humbled and honoured through all the times God partners with me on the keys.

snowfleur:

HAHAHHA. he DID!? i didn't remember that part. i noted that his voice in real life and on recording is quite different. If i heard him on the recording alone without actually seeing him, i wouldn't think that he looks the way he does now. He sounds so young! And comical. HAhaha.
