Jason Gray has emerged as a songwriter of extraordinary depth, with a noteworthy ability to convey deep theological truths in engaging three-and-a-half minute songs. The Minnesota native is steadily drawing legions of fans who recognize his ability to connect with listeners on an emotional level, offering not escape or distraction, but healing and hope.
That success and exposure is a testimony to the power of music and an artist willing to be used by God. As a child, Gray developed a speech handicap. Like Moses arguing with God over his effectiveness as a communicator, Gray naturally resisted the call to ministry through music. But God, the Champion of the lost cause, chose Gray to become a living, breathing, stuttering example of His strength in our weakness. Maybe that’s why so many are drawn to Gray’s music.
