The Music of Kelly Van Shaar

Ol' Man River

Me singing the old classic

Notes / Back story

I performed this at a single adults concert in the old Provo Tabernacle. At that time it was being used as a community center for a lot of concerts, etc. I even attended an Extempo concert there (which is where I found out that they were looking for a replacement bass for a few shows, which is how I ended up singing with them for a while!)

Since that time, the tabernacle burned down and is now being rebuilt as an LDS temple.

I love the powerful feeling of the song, and what it has to say about living through hardship.

So say something, already!
