 Mom wanted only one thing for her birthday."Can you find me another copy of this song?"she asked,and handed me a worn-out cassette tape.I knew exactly what was recorded on it:My Redeemer(救世主).I heard the song played at least a thousand times while growing up.After so many years,the cassette tape was too worn out to be used.I promised her I would find a replacement.
My Redeemer became Mom's favorite song after my younger brother Tim was killed by a drunk driver in 1973.The only thing that helped her calm down was the soulful sound of My Redeemer from the local radio station.
We recorded it on a cassette tape so she could listen to it any time she wanted but none of us knew who the soloist(独唱者) was.These days,I thought the song would be easy to find out.I went home and searched the Internet.Several songs with that title popped up,but none of them was the one Mom loved.I got frustrated.
Mom's birthday drew near and then one day,I was driving home,listening to our local radio station.A familiar tune came on.It was My Redeemer! As soon as I could,I phoned the station.I got a line on the soloist,who was called Alan Parks.I typed his name into Google and found his home number in South Carolina.Minutes later,I was telling him how much his recording meant to Mom.He offered to ship two CDs out to me personally.I gave him my address.
"Red Lion,Pennsylvania?"he said."Do you know the Logans ?""They are our neighbors!" "I've been friends with them for 25years,"Alan said."They'll be at my concert at York Gospel Chapel on April 17th.Would you and your mom come too?"We sure would.Mom was excited to hear Alan sing My Redeemer to her,live in concert-on the evening of her 87th birthday.
