New Video of “On and On”

Posted on Mar 3, 2013

Hey guys! Just wanted to share this video with all of you. Thanks to Devon Yesberger for filming it, and to Andrew Sarlo for engineering/mixing it. The recording of this song was made possible by the Jimmy Fund/Boston Children’s Hospital. I had the amazing honor of playing this at their “Gathering to Remember” memorial service, and they decided to have it recorded so that they could use it for future memorial services and for families dealing with the loss of a loved one. This song is for everyone in need of hearing its message. May it bring you much hope and light.
