Shawn McDonald

Wow, is all I can say. I don't know if I am the last one on this bandwagon but I just recently stumbled across this phenomenal artist! Shawn McDonald! He is absolutely incredible and has a great story and testimony about how God changed his life. His songs are sooooo well written and really "speak" to your soul. I watched a small piece about him on television a while back and was just really taken with his story. As a child he was basically abandoned by his parents, left to be raised by his grandparents. As an act of rebellion he fell into the world of drug abuse and drug dealing. He got into trouble with the law and God spoke to him. He picked up a bible that was given to him as a child by his Grandmother. The first verse he read spoke of "Cleaning your house of the demons" He took that piece of scripture and rid his house of all his demons, his drugs, then 2 days later his house was raided by the police and they found....NOTHING! He then took a friend up on an offer to attend church and from then on has let God lead his life. He is now married and has a beautiful little son. He is such a great example of the work God can do in someones life! His music is absolutely AMAZING. Go to Itunes and download the above album, Simply Nothing, and then download his new album, Roots! You won't be disappointed with either one. My favorite songs are Gravity, Beautiful,Take This Life,(Simply Nothing),Time,Wash Me Clean,Waltz in 3,Greed,(Roots). Go give him a listen!
