Happy Monday. It’s the last week of school in the McKinnon household so we are excited to be on the home stretch of the 2015 school year.
I’d like to kick off this week by sharing some music with you. Here’s my rendition of a classic worship chorus, “In Moments Like These” from my piano instrumental album, “Be Glorified”.
A few interesting facts about this album:
- It’s one of my older albums, recorded and produced in 1998.
- I recorded it on a Yamaha grand piano with 2 microphones being mixed directly to DAT (Digital Audio Tape). No mistakes allowed.
- The piano was draped in blankets to help with the acoustic in the room.
- I finished filling out the “UPS Next Day Air” waybill and packing the CD Master to be sent to the replicator, literally, as the pastor was telling my father and I, “Fred, it’s time to go .. right now” …. that’s right, it was my wedding day. I had an event where I would be performing in about 3 weeks and knew that if I didn’t have this CD in replication while I was on my honeymoon, the CDs wouldn’t be ready for the event. So, I shoved the UPS Next Day Air envelope into the hands of my Dad (and best man) and said “whatever you do, make sure this gets in the drop box” and we went into the church and I got married!
