"The Dream"

In honor of today's Inauguration of President Obama, I wanted to post a video of my cousin Dr. David Murdock of New Orleans, LA. playing an instrumental version of the song " Oh Happy Day" on his saxophone. I was not able to upload it from YouTube but was able to upload this one which he has titled : THE DREAM.........Please click the link and enjoy this beautiful
music!

The photo is of David and my daughter Melanie, taken at her wedding.
If you read my post:" Never Say Never ", I mentioned that I had an Aunt
Wilma Murdock who was no relation to my husband. David is her son,
thus we share the same last name even though his Mother and my Father are brother and sister.
David is not only a medical doctor, he is an extremely talented musician even though he has never taken a music lesson.He plays several instruments including, Sax, steel guitar,bass guitar,piano,
organ and Cajun Accordion. He is a professional on all of them! He is also a wonderful singer/songwriter.

That was beautiful! It gave me chills -- you know, the good kind you get when you hear soul-stirring music.
