Some of you may have already heard, but something crazy amazing happened this Easter. As part of the Gateway Worship team and choir, it was mentioned that it would be awesome to have a choir descant to sing with Kari at Easter. I took it as a personal challenge and sat down at the piano one afternoon to see if the Lord had anything He wanted to write through me.
In the bridge of this song (at the 3:32 mark), you’ll hear the descant that I wrote to Kari Jobe’s amazing anthem, “Forever.” (ProTop: You might even get to see my mug singing and crying like a baby somewhere around the 5:14 mark.) 🙂 I will never, in all my life, forget the moment during sound check when Kari heard the descant for the first time. She cried. Our worship pastor, Thomas Miller cried. I cried. Like a little baby, I sobbed. It was a Holy Spirit moment like no other. And all nine times we had the privilege of worshipping this song with the Gateway congregation, it felt like Christmas morning. No, it felt like Easter morning.
For He is risen, He is risen indeed!
Enjoy this, my friends. The Holy Spirit is all over it and I dare you to listen without crying.
Love you all!
