I have had Piano Man’s Praise Productions for a while but I have never announced that I am hitting the road full time to tickle the ivories! (Well plastic nowadays.) I have been playing the piano with both hands, since I was a legally blind 6-year old. In the television studio performing HOW I WAS INSPIRED: Expand The Ice Cream Truck: It’s was so neat to hear the simple tune of an ice cream truck as it neared the house. As I heard it approaching, it wasn’t just ice cream that I was happy about. It was the tune that I was hearing! “The Entertainer”. I ran to the piano and found each note as I heard them play in my head, and before long I was playing the entire melody, and finding chords with my other hand. My mother put stickers on the keys to show me where each chord was with the corresponding keys to create a chord. Even though I wore glasses thicker than coke bottles released in 1899, vision was blurry, and was told I would never see well enough to drive a vehicle, my passion to play music, drove my fingers forward. MY FAVORITE PIANISTS Expand I've always been inspired by piano music, especially gospel music! My top favorite mentor was Anthony Burger. I was given a cassette of him while we traveled as a ministry family; I listened earnestly over and over dreaming of being able to play like him someday. I also loved to hear Stan Whitmire, and the pianist with The Inspirations: Martin Cook. I was so happy when I met Anthony Burger and Martin Cook both, and even created a CD dedicated to Anthony Burger. The album was recorded on my electric piano in my bedroom, and the quality was far from what I wanted (you know that La Grande sound.) I was contacted by one lady who said that I created the CD by copying Anthony's piano music. It thrilled me to know that the only way that I was playing like him was by the power and ability from God himself! MORE ABOUT JONATHAN: Expand I was healed of my blindness when I was 9 years old when my family was on a ministry trip in California. God is so good!
