I still remember – – it was back in 1985, a year after arriving here in the land of milk and honey when I first heard of her. Back in the Philippines, I was a member of the Catholic Charismatic Renewal group from and when I arrived in the U.S. I still hungered for spiritual fulfillment. Since I knew no one and very new to the Catholic church here, I relied on music to sustain my spirit. Christian music was all that I listened to. Through my weekly visits to a Christian bookstore, I came to know Amy Grant. To me, she was this pure young spirit. She was simple, very much in love with God. I loved her music cause it filled the void in me. One of my favorites is the song, El Shaddai . I watched the video of her 1983 concert when she performed this song and I have loved it ever since.
Since it is Easter, and I feel that it is a good time for me to share what I enjoy to all of you. Here s a new clip of Amy Grant singing the song El Shaddai in an updated version- – I understand now why I learned to love the artist and the song. The song still has the same effect on me, and I hope that it touches you as well. Watch this.
HAPPY EASTER TO ALL OF YOU!
GOD BLESS YOU!
