Edwin Fawcett - Music for God
Listen to this report from Romereports.com about Edwin Fawcett who has performed his music in this diocese many times.
Romereports.com tell us that the British singer and composer Edwin Fawcett likes to say that God gave him the gift of music 15 years ago. Since then, he takes every chance possible to load his songs with profound lyrics.
He started taking piano lessons in a conservatory and also sung in a gospel choir. Later, he was composing his own music for the first time.
Fawcett grew up in East London and his music is full of the variety that distinguishes that area: he mixes jazz, soul, R&B and even indie!
Not by chance Fawcett proudly states that 100 different countries are present every week at his parish for Sunday Mass.
His latest album 'Behold,' features 17 instrumental and vocal tracks, five of which were composed by Facwett himself and his sister Hermione.
This is his fourth album overall. Edwin Facwett says they all are an attempt to repay God for the gift of music.
