Greetings everybody, Happy 2016, and all that Jazz. Well, last Wednesday, January 6, it was my 38th birthday and it certainly was one for the history books. I had a fantastic day and in the evening I released my debut CD, 'Lord, Set Your People on Fire'.
A friend of mine did a write up for the local paper, here's what she had to say about the evening:
It was a night of music, stories and fellowship at First Ragged Islands Baptist Church on January 6 as Melvin John Wheaton released his debut CD, “Lord, Set Your People on Fire”.
More than 40 people attended the event to hear Wheaton and the Breakin’ Out band perform songs from the CD as well as some popular gospel numbers. A talented songwriter and musician, Wheaton has been writing music since he was 13. The most emotional moment of the night came when he performed “The Age of 24”, a song from his CD and a loving tribute to his brother Michael, who died of cancer in 2005.
“Lord, Set Your People on Fire” is available at www.breakinout.ca (where you will also find Melvin’s contact information), iTunes, Google Play and Amazon.ca. Written by: Shelby Kelly
Simply amazing, I must say. I am looking forward to what God has in store in 2016 and where this journey will take. I tend to wander a lot, so I am very thankful for Bilbo Baggin's saying, "Not all those who wander are lost." I do not feel lost, even though I often wonder where I am.
Be blessed, wishing you much happiness, joy and success in 2016. Take Care, Melvin
