April of 1990 was an important turning point in his life. David reached out and called on the name of the Lord who answered and delivered him from the gates of hell. Returning to his church roots, he began again, to rebuild his foundation and faith in God. He joined the Hebron Tabernacle Church, where he filled in and played the piano behind the pastors wife during praise and worship services. He began to be strengthened and grow in grace more and more as he acknowledge the gift giver. As the years went by David has been the praise and worship leader for several churches, realizing that the gift of music is not just for self but to minister to others as well.
IAA: What is your music background?
DAVID: I showed interest in music at the age of five when I would mimic playing my toy guitar while my father would practice with his band in our basement. At age 8, I received an old folk guitar by an older cousin who showed me how to play a honky tonk tune. I played by ear and I am basically self taught and can play several different instruments. As time went by I joined several other top forty bands that traveled and played on the local circuit.
