We all have important people in our lives. Some are these important people are our family, friends, and church friends. But, there are those people that enter our lives that really do make an impact. Today, I will talk specifically about one special person in my life.
Fran McKendree is a Christian and Folk Musician. For a number of years, he led the music at Kanuga for my church’s Parish Retreats- 2003-2008 and 2012. The songs he had us sing was the beginning of my love for contemporary christian music. What automatically comes to mind is “Lord, I Lift Your Name On High”, “Servant Song”, “Lord of the Dance”, “One Body” and “Sanctuary”.
Fran led the music on the Winterlight 24 Soundtrack- hearing those songs would eventually lead me to actually attend that high school conference. Those songs are some of my first contemporary christian music I own. I went to Winterlight for two years- 2010 and 2011.
