Inspirational Song of the Week

He’s One of Mine

Performed by
Peter Link

Music and Lyrics
by Peter Link

Thru Me, a compilation of favorite songs written over the last twenty years, was produced, orchestrated and sung by the composer. Taken from both his work in the theater and from his own personal experience, the styles range from theatrical to pop.

Here are some of Peter’s thoughts on “He’s One of Mine” from his blog, Sparks from the Fire:

“I think God’s just got to have a sense of humor. How could He, She, or It never experience laughter? In fact, I think God must actually laugh a lot. Especially at us. … Also I deeply believe that all religions have some connection with the Truth … I’m also obviously not real big on the anthropomorphic God concept.

====================================

“The sheer range of style and excellency of every number demonstrated talents and skills placing Link among our foremost musical craftsmen. By evening’s end any spirit that hasn’t been uplifted should be checked for consciousness.” – Carolyn Rollin Albert, Singles Almanac

“Peter Link has written a score that mixes to beautiful effect country-western strains with a pop sensibility and even soaring melodic lines reminiscent of opera. What listeners will comment on is the richness and effectiveness of the score…” – By Andy Propst, Americantheatreweb.com

On his journey through life, Peter Link, takes us to some colorful stops along the way. His songs and singing style strike chords of sensitivity and emotion for hearers young and old. Moods portrayed so realistically, by Link range from quiet reflection to anxiety, to playfulness and joy. This is a CD that is sure to get a lot of play. — Carol Jay, York, NY
