I have always admired the cello playing of Sharon Gerber. I just heard about her new album Into the Night and this video in which Sharon shares about the personal tragedy that drove her to the Psalms with cello in hand. The 2nd half of the video is a beautiful excerpt from one of the tracks!

“This album is all about clinging to hope and light through times of darkness. I wrote and arranged the music to minister to my own heart during some especially dark times over the past few years. There have been many times when I didn’t have words or my mind was just a jumbled mess. But music has given me a way to communicate with God on a deeper level while preaching truth to myself in a way that I can remember. Preaching truth to myself has been and continues to be key. God’s truth is our only hope and light when we get overwhelmed by the darkness of our circumstances or feelings. It is so important to cling to what we know rather than what we feel!”

This quote is part of an interview with Sharon by Andy Nasseli. Read more.
