Robert HarperHmmm… I need to get this started correctly so that u see the total relation of this Post. This post is about my brother’s father-in-law in US.  Its just a cool testimony of how great God can use your talents and bring it up to the world.

Robert Harper is a world reknown painter based in Colorado, USA. (aka Bob Harper)

His daughter … Tawnya, married my bro … Kevin and they now got absolutely lovely kids Elijah & Noah. They are so so so cute.

This story is about Bob Harper. In Malaysia when we say that a person is a painter, we tend to visualize a person painting the insides of a house or building. So for this case to avoid any mistaken identity, Bob is an Artist. 🙂

A few years ago, Amy Grant and Vince Gill bought a very large piece of Bob’s artwork to hang in their home.  A few months ago, Amy called Bob and asked if they could use that painting on the set of a live DVD concert recording she was scheduled to do in the summer. 

Amy Grant - Time Again

The DVD, entitled TIME AGAIN just came out.  It was filmed here in Fort Worth at the Bass Hall.  Amy wanted the set to feel like her home, so the Set Designer placed Bob’s painting center stage, just above Amy’s couch. 

Then, they made an ENORMOUS reproduction of the piece and hung it in huge sheets as the backdrop for the whole stage.  The result was stunning and, best of all, a Bob Harper Original! 

Amy Grant’s new DVD : Time Again

 Amy Grant Time Again

It was a warm September night in Fort Worth in 1978. A young singer/songwriter took the stage for her first paid performance. She sang all the songs in her youthful repertoire and even tossed in a couple Carole King compositions for good measure. Yet she still wanted to give the audience more for their money. As she stood there pondering her next move, someone in the audience yelled, “Just sing them again.”

So she did and so she has. For nearly 30 years Amy Grant’s songs have inspired her legion of fans and defined her career. Needless to say, it’s rather poetic that she returned to Fort Worth and “sang them again” for her latest collection, Time Again…Amy Grant Live, a project that takes the audience on a musical trip down memory lane and reminds us all of the power of the songs, the purity of the message and the incomparable talent of Amy Grant.

Time Again…Amy Grant Live was recorded for a CD and filmed for a DVD at Fort Worth’s Bass Hall, a perfect venue in which to capture the intimate bond Amy has always forged with her audience. The CD features such well-loved hits as “Lead Me On,” Stay For Awhile,” “Baby Baby,” “Every Heartbeat,” and a new studio version of “In A Little While,” which is being released as the project’s lead single.

For the concert portion of the DVD, Amy brings the audience into her living room—well actually as close as they can get out on the road as she brought her sofa from home, the picture that hangs above that sofa and other items from the living room of the house she shares with husband Vince Gill and their family.

 DVD
(also includes 23 songs, behind the scenes features, and interviews):

Lead me on
Good for me
Stay for awhile
Takes a little time
Simple things
Lucky one
Saved by love
Out in the open
Carry you
Ask me
After the fire
In a little while
Thy word
Father’s eyes
El shaddai
Oh how the years go by
Baby baby
Big yellow taxi
Eye to eye
Every heartbeat
I will remember you
If these walls could speak

Lead me on
Good for me
Stay for awhile
Takes a little time
Simple things

After the fire
In a little while
Thy word
Oh how the years go by
Baby baby
Eye to eye
Every heartbeat
Believe
I will remember you
