A Touch of Encouragement

As many of you many remember, Randy was the most popular and most frequent guest star on “Touched By An Angel” during the nine years that the show aired on CBS. I’ve always believed that he was and remains so popular because he is, as David Letterman once described him, “the real deal.”

What’s so real, I believe, is not just Randy’s immense talent as a performer with one of the most uniquely recognizable voices in the entertainment industry. It’s the genuinely humble heart and soul of the man that continues to bless us. Randy is one of those rare people who will honestly give credit where it’s due and take virtually none for himself. He credits his wife, his fellow musicians, and most of all, his God for bringing him out of darkness into the light.
Having had the privilege of knowing Randy and his remarkable wife and partner Elizabeth for more than fourteen years, I can attest that it’s not just the music that’s “real.” Something in that music he makes transcends “country” or “gospel” labels and becomes one man’s testimony to the transforming power of striving for the good and the right.
Listen to his new single “Faith In You” and tell me if there isn’t someone in your life who deserves to be reminded of their positive influence in your life. Watch the video on Randy’s website that covers twenty-five years of great music and a commitment to excellence. It’s hard to believe how much time has passed since a quiet young man promised he’d love us “Forever and Ever, Amen.” He’s kept his promise and given us more than his music. He has shared his faith. And that will last forever and ever, too. Amen.
