Gospel Piano

I'm an amateur pianist and have recorded these hymns and Gospel songs. I trust you will be blessed in listening.

Amazing Grace was first published by Anglican clergyman, John Newton, in 1779. Newton originally titled the poem "Faith's Review and Expectation." The original tune used with the poem is unknown. In 1835 American composer William Walker set the poem to the tune "New Britain" which became the song we currently know as Amazing Grace. May you be blessed by my personal rendition of this great hymn.

Easter Song was written by Annie Herring and first released in 1974 on the debut album of the 2nd Chapter of Acts, a contemporary Christian band comprised of Annie and her siblings, Nelly Greisen and Michael Ward. May you be blessed by this rendition of the Easter Song

Takin' It to The Streets was written by Michael McDonald and recorded by the Doobie Brothers in 1976. The song was inspired by conversations between Michael and his sister, as well as a college essay written by his sister. The song speaks from the perspective of growing up in the inner city, poor and in despair. Michael McDonald intentionally wrote the song with a Gospel sound to underscore the importance of the message. McDonald had a Catholic upbringing in St. Louis and is a self-professed Christian. He is a friend to the Little Sisters of the Poor and dedicated his Christmas album to their work in San Francisco.

 

Michael McDonald often plays a few bars of the Christian hymn as an introduction when performing Takin' It to The Streets. I have done the same here. All images used have creative commons license.
