One of my favorite musical artists Bob Bennett performed a Facebook live concert on March 21st this year when the country was in the midst of a national Covid-19 lockdown.
I have been listening to Bob’s music since the early eighties and even had a chance meeting with him a few years ago when he came unbeknownst to me to our church and performed at our worship service while he was recording an album at our local college. I spoke with him briefly and bought a c.d. from him. I remember him as being gracious and encouraging.
Since March 21st. Bob has performed concerts each and every weekend via FB live with the exception of one weekend when he was having medical issues. That weekend some young men did some covers of Bob’s song as a get well wish for him.
This past Saturday Bob performed his 39th FB live concert featuring music from Christmastide which if memory serves was the C.D. I picked up from hat my church 4 years ago. My wife and I watched and listened. Amy had written in the chat that it was my birthday and waited in expectation for Bob to greet me with warm wishes. Bob did not wish me birthday greetings, which I didn’t mind as my birthday is in September! #Crazywifecrazylife
I talk here from time to time about my Big 3 (My favorite 3 music artists. If I were to go 4 Bennett would easily join Alan Levi, Michael Card and Randy Stonehill in that musical pantheon.
