about me

I grew up in rural Mississippi, singing hymns around the living room with my cousins at family gatherings.  I now work as a church musician at The Church of the Advent in Washington, DC, and  I love my job.  In my spare time, I write and record my own music, which you can learn more about at http://www.wendellk.com/

    Wendell,
    I’d love to be in contact with you about a few things. I’m working on a doctorate in the effects of singing and its accompanying neuroscience of affiliation (especially as seen in church communities). Too much to say here, but you probably would be interested in some things I’ve learned. And I’d like to find the article you note in your 21Nov2009 blog (National Center for Biotechnology Information). I can’t seem to find it.
    Write soon,
    Beth+

    I just wanted to say “Thank you” for your music that I just happened to stumble across on Youtube. Our organist played the song “And Can it Be?” for the offeratory this past Sunday. Ever since then I have had that song stuck in my head. I hadn’t heard it in years and am now learning the guitar, and wanted to find a how to video. I did a search and your name came up. I was reluctant to listen because there are so many things on Youtube that you just never know what you are going to get quality and content wise. I am so glad I did click. I listened to your rendition about a half a dozen times during lunch. And I viewed your other videos too. Awesome. You really should do a hymn project. There is something so precious about them. And then I watched one that pointed me to this site. Thank you for lifting me up today. I needed it. Continue to praise our LORD Jesus in all you do. God bless you!

      Thanks so much for the encouragement, Mark. Hymns project is underway. Look for more info about that on wendellk.com, which will also be the future home of this blog.
