Hear My Song, Lord

Last Wednesday, Anthony Burger died suddenly of an apparent heart attack. If you don't know who Anthony Burger was, he was an amazing pianist, with an amazing testimony, who has been apart of Bill Gaither's videos and tours for many years.

Now, if you're thinking Anthony must've been an older guy...he wasn't. He was 44 years old and had no history of heart problems and appeared to be in good health. You see some people who look like heart attacks...Anthony didn't.

The Gaither Bunch was aboard a cruise ship in the Caribbean when Anthony died. Anthony was in the middle of a song, in front of an audience when his time came. The story is quite chilling and is told in detail by Tori Taff, the wife of Russ Taff, on Mark Lowry's website here.

I hated to see him go so young. What a shock! He was such an inspiration to me. I love his music.
