Mary Did You Know? │ Johnny Hammer

My Dear Aunt Martha and I spent the whole afternoon surfing the internet trying to find something new, and different to share on Chandu The Magician.  Well, Aunt Martha finally suggested that we search for some "Techno Praise" music.  You see, Aunt Martha, having been a professional opera singer all of her life, still keeps tabs on all of the latest musical trends, which is something that I am really loathe to do.  I had never heard of "Techno Praise" but I do trust Aunt Martha's judgment.  I typed in the search term, and dozens of hits popped up.  It did not take long to find this "Techno Praise" version of Mark Lowry's wonderful Christmas gem "Mary, Did You Know?".  It is sung by a fresh new singer by the name of Johnny Hammer, and he is sensational.  The power, honesty, innocence, and freshness of Johnny's performance brought tears to both Aunt Martha's, and my eyes.  Johnny also has an amazing angelic presence that makes him so intoxicating to watch.  I predict that this version of "Mary, Did You Know?" will turn out to be a perennial Christmas favorite.  By the way, the group that Johnny belongs to is called Technopraise.  Please click on this link to purchase an MP3 of Johnny Hammer singing "Mary, Did You Know?" from  Johnny Hammer - Mary Did You Know   Please join Aunt Martha and I in watching this amazing video by clicking on the widget below.

    1. Hi Vampir de Uoltera,

      The "Mary" that is being referred to in the song is "Mary, the mother of Jesus". I'm glad that you liked the song.
