Music has numerous capabilities and serves many purposes. It communicates; it is a form of expression, often reflecting circumstances of our lives. The reflective aspect of music is often where we find a connection to something greater than ourselves. There are many music genres, but none minister to the soul like gospel music. Common themes of gospel include messages of hope, deliverance, love, and forgiveness. These messages are more than mere words with music; they carry meaning, power, and the ability to transform despair into hope, fear into boldness, and passion into purpose. The subject of this profile shares the message behind their music and the purpose of their praise.
