How to Master Your Gift of Talent

Thanks to YouTube and this marvelous combination of technical tools we have with WordPress and all the stuff stacked behind the Internet, we come across great and devoted talent, sometimes quite unexpectedly. I love it. I love it when I stumble across an extraordinary devotion to a particular gift.

Extraordinary Devotion

Keyboard Player Marcus A. Stanley provides me with the perfect example. And at the time I saw his recording of The Anthem – Planet Shakers, it had only 12 views. I pray to God that it goes viral. Listen to the timing, watch his perfect fingering played with a body that is exuding every musical inflection and even in the pauses is expressing his soul-felt desire to bring in another phrase.

Stanley is an expressive master of the keyboard. Visit his YouTube channel here and you’ll learn what he believes is the reason for his ability. I believe it too.


Just look at him. Tell me if you think he hasn’t surrendered all of himself to his God. He is giving everything in him to play this music with all he has. That’s my belief. Thank you, Marcus A. Stanley. I wish we lived in the same neighborhood.
