Quite often, my mom Sarah, drops me off at the Senior Citizen Center with my guitar and she picks me up a couple of hours later. I really enjoy preforming for these kind old ladies. (Sometimes they show up an hour before I get there so they can get a good seat.) They never tip, but I love to see them smile.
Last Christmas , my friend Bailee and I sang a Christmas song at my church. The Bishop was a little reluctant to let us play because I would be playing a guitar. I think that in the Bishop’s mind it would be loud…. like electric guitars. He wasn’t sure it would be appropriate for Church.
My dad assured him it would not be loud and that the song was a beautiful Christmas song about the baby Jesus.
We sang a song by Bruce Cockburn called “The Cry Of A Tiny Babe.” Cockburn is a singer-songwriter who was born in 1945. He has written folk, jazz and rock and roll music. “The Cry Of A Tiny Babe” lets the listener see through the lives of the people who were directly affected by the birth of Jesus.
This is one of my favorite Christmas songs. The people in the ward enjoyed the song and we enjoyed singing it for them.
P.S. This acoustic cover is on You Tube but you can watch it here. Click on the video below to see Jackson Danger and Bailee sing this beautiful Christmas song, “The Cry Of A Tiny Babe.”
