YOP 12: “What A Friend” (featuring Grace Blackford)

EpisodeĀ 12 features another arrangement of a traditional hymn (“What A Friend We Have in Jesus”) and features guest vocalist (and listener of the podcast), Grace Blackford.

I’ve been able to watch Grace grow up in our church (Emanuel Lutheran) where I directed her in the youth choir and I couldn’t be more honored to have her as a guest vocalist on the show. Thank you, Grace!

This hymn’s author had quite a sad and tragic life and the lyrics were penned in a letter to comfort someone else. You’ll hear that whole story in this episode.
