MEET JEREMY COMPOSER OF "STAND UP." Our open song was composed by Jeremy Dodge who will be our guest tonight September 19th. Jeremy loved and had a passion for music for s long as he can remember. It all started when his dad took him to a rock concert at the age of 4 years. He says that as a teenager he became very involved in the church but when he went into high school he decided to go his own way and pursue his dream of becoming a musician. After several years of trying to "make it" he ended up broke, depressed and homeless. Eventually he moved back home and after several months of making wrong choices and after one late night of partying he laided in bed thinking there has to be more to life then this. He ask God if he was real because he needed to know. He passed out and woke up completely sober and had no desire for substance at all. He immediately got back into the church and met his wife. He spent the next 8 years volunteering in his church in several capacities and one of which was his youth ministry. He sincerely cares about young people mentally, physically and spiritually. I honestly feel there is a generation of young people growning up that are not investigating the things they believe in. Instead, they believe what music artist, media, their friends and the internet say concerning inportant subjects like life, religion and politics. This must stop! One night he was watching Glenn Beck and had a sudden urgency to write a political sohg. As I watched Glenn Beck I fought the idea of writing it, he kept thinking, what would I do with a political song. Finally, he put all of his doubts aside and picked up pen and paper. Within five minutes, he wrote the song, "STAND UP." He wrote Stand Up out of pure concern about where our country and the gereration coming up in our nation and what they are going have to live with if something isn't done. AGAIN HIS SONG "STAND UP." It is our into song before each show.
