This was recorded in 1972, while “Those Nelson Kids” were on tour around the U.S., singing in churches as a family group. My mom, dad, brother Jorge, sister Mari and myself traveled for two summers in a row…first heading west, and then east…with the mission of trying to show the relevance of youth music in the church at that time. We were welcomed with open arms and hearts. This was my big introduction to working in front of an audience on an ongoing basis. I was 12 years old that first year…were my knees ever shaking during those first shows!!!
This is my favorite arrangement of “Jesus Loves Me.”
