Oh cool, didn't see this description box! Kinda hidden. :P Anyway, I got into music through the school band... which happen almost by an accident with my friend signing me up without me saying anything about it... glad he did. :P Later got me a keyboard and taught myself how to write music and some music theory. :) Later got me an Esteban guitar and learned guitar through his lesson DVD's. Around my senior year close to when my dad felt he was being called to preach, I sorta felt like God was "calling" me to be a singer... which I questioned if it was really God because I'm one of the quietest people you'll ever meet (without a doubt, I am the quietest apart from a disabled person). I also feel I can't sing sometimes. Though I've gotten better over the years, I'm still not all the way satisfied with my voice... but I'm reminded that God doesn't listen to the voice, but the heart. I do use an automatic pitch correction tool called G-Snap, but it rarely helps. :P But Watching Jason Gray's videos, I was inspired. Here he is, a stutterer, and he's a contemporary Christian singer/songwriter (which I got to meet in person). One thing he said stuck with me. "God takes our weaknesses (which I feel is my quietness and shy personality) in which Hell intends to destroy our lives, and turns it around and uses it as a weapon to fight for the kingdom of God." Why did God choose me to be a singer? I don't know. I ask that question as often as I ask "Why did God choose to save me from what I deserve, eternal death in Hell?" So remember, I'm doing what I feel God has called me to do (occassionally, I'll write some secular stuff for fun though). :P I may not be good, but I'm getting better over time. It will take time to get to where I want to be... and to where God wants me to be. He has the Map Of My Life, so I must ask Him where He wants me to go... and if I've traveled off the path, how do I get back on. Hope you enjoy me. I am a Christian, but I never push my belief on anyone. Songs such as Standing Strong, that's simply my belief, and what I have to say to atheists who try to prove me wrong and knock me down and call me crazy! You don't do that, I won't blow up in your face. Ha! I shouldn't anyway. But yea... thanks for checking me out!
