Jack’s interpretation of the song “The More I Seek You” written by Zach Neese not only caught my attention but immediately inspired me catching me up in rapturous praise! Singing like this not only lifts your spirit, but feeds your soul and this boy had accomplished both through this one video performance.
I have always been moved by worship music! Not just good gospel, but songs that allow you to feel the anointing which is undoubtedly heaven sent to the original authors. Jack not only sang this song with expression but you could feel a special anointing that was transmitting through him in this special and moving rendition.
Having my interest peeked even more about this young singer who so eloquently displayed a talent beyond his years, I was impressed to write his parents to find out more about Jack, his talent, aspirations and dreams for the future.
His parents shared with me that from the time Jack was born he was drawn to music.
“Any time we sang to him, he would turn toward our voices and became still and listened. When he was able to sit up, he would sway and bounce to the music playing on a video or the CD player.”
They also added that if the tempo or song changed, Jack would demonstrate perfect rhythm.
In my research over the years I have found that musical prodigies often come from families who have already shown previous musical abilities. While it is not always the case that their birth parents show signs of musical ability, somewhere down through the gene pool this talent has been handed down.
