Don’t Look Back

9 05 2008

A guy from North Carolina who worked at Home Depot as a credit manager just got a new job: As lead singer of his all-time favorite band, Boston!


On his MySpace page he had posted several samples of him singing Boston songs karaoke style. When someone heard the songs and suggested he should send them to Boston’s management, he did, using an email address provided by the same person.


When Tom Scholz, one of the band’s founding members, heard the songs playing through his wife’s computer, he said he could’ve sworn it was Brad Delp, their original singer who passed away recently. Only when he turned the volume way up did he realize they were karaoke versions of their music.


He immediately got in touch with the guy and now the Home Depot manager will be managing lead vocals on Boston’s summer tour and on a new album with them in the fall.


Isn’t that an amazing story? It reminds me of what it says in Isaiah 43:18,19: “Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up...”


To quote one of Boston’s biggest hits, “Don’t Look Back.” You never know when a new level of Better Life will break for you.
