Jason Gray in Concert
When a guy who grew up as a chronic stutterer in an abusive home takes the mic and obviously cares more about loving you than about what you think of him, you know something’s up.
Skillfully marrying his trademark deft lyrical expressions to smooth pop melodies, Jason Gray’s musical style has been compared to Brandon Heath on the one hand, and Mark Heard or Rich Mullins on the other.
The combination of Jason’s onstage humor, self-disclosure, and genuine compassion coupled with his technical artistry has proved to have a highly magnetic effect.
But his underlying secret lies in the fact that it’s not a calculated act drummed up for the stage. The integrity and openness that transform his performances into something like large, personal conversations are really the logical outgrowth of his desire to live all of life under the jurisdiction of a gracious God.
Jason’s music tries to assure us that we aren’t alone. We might be broken, but we’re a community of the broken, bearing one another’s burdens.
“Perfect people don’t need grace, only broken people do.
When I come clean about my brokenness, others catch glimpses of how the real grace of a real God works in the messy life of a real person.
So I share a lot of stories about where I’ve encountered God’s grace - where He meets me at my deepest points of need. It’s my hope that seeing God’s grace in my life will help others see it as a possibility in their own lives."
