This video is from one of our friends and contributing photographers, Grace Fershee. It was taken at the BMI Songwriters Showcase at the Gospel Music Association’s Immerse Conference on June 13th in Nashville.
“After I asked musical director & keyboardist extraordinaire Maestro to come chill & hang out at Immerse he was then asked to jump on stage super last second to perform with Danny Gokey during the GMA Songwriter showcase accompanied by Benji Cowart… And they absolutely killed it! So great seeing these guys after volunteering all day!!”
