About 20 feet away from an amazing person who shares his joys and struggles honestly with the whole world to hear in the form of music.
His name is Bebo Norman. An incredible singer and man of God. And I got to be on the second row.
The first song I remember hearing by Bebo was the song "A Page Is Turned". I fell in love with that song mainly because it was this ideal story about a love.
But over the years as I have heard more and more of his music, I've grown to love it even more. Not because he talks about meeting the "love of your life" but because he talks about The Love of My Life. My Savior and Redeemer. He is honest with his words and worships the same Creator I live for. I remember playing his cd when I worked at camp and relating to everyone of his songs. So many good memories of his music.
So last night I had the chance to watch him in a small concert in Columbus, Georgia, thanks to a friend. We even had special seats landing us on the second row. It was one of the best concerts I have ever been to. I felt like I was apart of the big family and friends group that was there to watch there him perform, even though I have never met him. The songs that I have listened and related to over the last few years were performed and I sat there in awe of the pureness of his voice and his heart for my Lord.
If you ever have the chance to go see him, you should. If I ever have the chance to go see him again, I will.
