Learn to Play: O Lord, You're Beautiful

O Lord, You're Beautiful: Keith Green l LadyDpiano.com


I met Keith Green a very long time ago. My husband and I were waiting in line to attend one of his concerts. The line was so long and we were oh, so cold patiently waiting with the crowd. Unexpectedly, there was Keith green talking with us and apologizing for the wait. We quickly were ushered inside and the concert began. This very talented musician, beautiful inside and out, is greatly missed and his music lives on.
