Passion from Phil Wickham (Blog by Daniel Hodges

I usually don't still blogs but I am stealing this blog from Daniel Hodges. So, this is for the LP Worship team but everyone enjoy too. So here we go....

Passion is contagious! I am realizing more and more that you can do just about anything you want if you are passionate. In this video below Phil Wickham covered a song called “Hallelujah”. To be honest the first time I saw the video I didn’t walk away raving about it. Phil Wickham is a good musician, he has a great voice, and he played a pretty good song. I think it was only 2 days later that I was back on Dave’s (Milams )blog watching that video again and before you know it I was on youtube devouring anything and everything I could find Phil Wickham singing.

There was something special about this guy. Like I saw before he is a great artist but that wasn’t really what had me searching like a crazy man for more. It was his PASSION. He sang that song with such a transparency I couldn’t help but believe what he was singing.

I’m sure you can think of someone right now that fits the mold I am talking about. Maybe there are a musician, maybe they are a painter, maybe they aren’t artsy at all and they are just the man/woman at leadership. The point is, these people have something special. I love that!

In the end I’ve have been reminded by this simple YouTube video to live life and music and worship with passion and transparency. We all need to be reminded of that.
