Hi, my name is Sammy Gonzalez I am 18 years old and have been playing the drums for a 1 year. Before I started playing a full drum kit I had been playing cajon/percussion for about 4 years, last year I entered in the percussion >18 category and was blessed to have won. I started learning the drums from various youtube videos and with help from one of the main drummers at my church. It has been such a blessing to be able to play/ be apart of the worship for some of the services at my church, I have been able to grow and learn during this past year thanks to some of the people God has put in my life and the resources He has provided me with. One of the best things I love about playing the drums in the worship team is seeing the people raising their hands and singing to God and just seeing them have that connection with the Lord is the best thing and is what fuels my drive to learn and grow more on the drums. This video is from one of our sunday night sets we are covered the song Christ is Enough by Hillsong Worship. I chose this video for the contest because this song because in the lyrics it says "Through every trial My soul will sing no turning back I've been set free Christ is enough for me," which is true in my life through my fair share of health problems which can be tough some days. I get my strength from the Lord and playing the drums and worshiping is what helps me cope with it all and knowing that no matter what goes on Christ is always enough for me. I know I haven't been playing that long but I hope my story can encourage others to follow after what they love.
Hope this video blesses you and that you enjoy this video
