A little over a year ago I met one the most friendly, kindhearted, and welcoming people I have ever had the privilege of meeting. His name is David Upton. I was able to lead worship along side him on that day and play a truly remarkable song that David wrote. This past week I saw David at the Saddleback Worship Conference. He (and an amazing band) lead the "Overdrive" service at Saddleback every week. Well, I was able to worship along with David and the band on two separate occasions during the week, and all I can say is "WOW!!!" God was present in a big way.
It is a great honor to call David a friend. While I have only had the pleasure of his company on a few separate occasions, I do consider him a friend of the highest order. That all being said, I want all three of my readers to know about the 5 song E.P that David recorded and released I believe this last March. It is called "Unshackled" and I am not at all kidding when I say that it is one the finest collections of songs I HAVE EVER HEARD in my life. I love music. I love good music. I love great music and "Unshackled" is more than great. You can pick up a copy of this wonderful collection from David's website HERE.
You can also find it on itunes
I will write more about this wonderful CD later, but all 3 of you should go right now, do not pass go, do not collect $200, and buy this CD. You will not regret it.
