I love music. I always have. I started taking piano lessons when I was pretty young, and I really felt called to this when I was 13 years old, which is kind of a crazy story in and of itself. I think that’s the first time I felt the Holy Spirit in my life. I was at a piano recital and kind of just felt God take over. I sang in public for the first time and it was just kind of wild.
But I knew that God was going to use music to some degree in my life, and God opens doors that no man can shut. When he puts the desire on your heart, he’s going to see it come to fruition. He’ll finish what He starts. He exceeds my expectations and blows my mind every time.
I just want to see Him go crazy, you know? I just want to be available. So whatever that looks like, I love people. I love imparting just little seeds of hope into people whether they go to church or not. And that’s kind of my calling, is just people in general. There are a lot of people who don’t go to church or who don’t listen to Christian radio or whatever.
And I want to reach those people too, whether they realize I’m smacking them with Jesus or not. That’s kind of my goal and if that looks like, you know, me selling out stadiums, awesome. If that means me showing up and there’s 20 people in a coffeehouse, that’s great too. God was about the one, Jesus was about the one.
And I feel like some artists use that because they’re not drawing a huge crowd. But I truly mean that. I’m just thankful that I get to do what I love to do. And it’s something that I also feel called to do. I know that God put this in my life for a reason and I’m going to keep doing it until I no longer feel that call.
