Cover Song

December 12, 2023

I was on praise team with this cutie-patootie Sunday morning. She nailed “Noel” by Chris Tomlin, Ed Cash, and Matt Redman. Her rendition was so beautiful, I got choked up halfway through which was a bit of a problem because I was playing the piano and had visions of sobbing hysterically and losing my spot in the music.

While we were warming up at the practice, I played about eight measures of a song that I love. Megan ran over to me. “Oh, that song just gets me in my soul.” I knew exactly what she meant.

This morning, she sent me a short recording of herself singing and harmonizing that same song.

I texted her back within minutes. “Oh my goodness!! I have major, like MAJOR goosebumps. You have such a gift, my friend! Let’s record it! I’ve never done a cover before.😉”

About Marie de Haan

Marie is a gifted pianist, playing since the age of nine. As a teenager, she composed mainly instrumental piano music. She released her powerful debut single, “I Am Broken,” on October 22, 2020, a song whose creation drew heavily upon the trauma she endured as a victim of childhood sexual abuse. Marie held a benefit concert on September 10, 2021, in Skagit County. A portion of the proceeds went to CrossRoads Youth Ranch; this local organization—through equine therapy—empowers “at-risk and sexually exploited youth to heal, grow, and thrive.” She has continued to write music: Christian, folk, and country. Marie loves hiking, gardening, and photography. The Pacific Northwest—where she lives with her husband—is the backdrop for her favorite activities.
