Give It Up ... Let It Go ... Throw It Down

>> Wednesday, January 5, 2011

Ken Medema was born almost blind. He began playing the piano when he was five and three years later began taking lessons in classical music through Braille music, playing by ear and improvising in different styles. His lyrics generally provide social commentary on themes such as justice, hunger, poverty, homelessness, and Christianity.

This is not exactly my style of music, but the words are powerful … especially at the end.

Had the privilege of seeing him on concert once, and our church used his music for a time. An awesome and inspirational man.
