Listen to a full production of Karl’s song that he had produced before attending InspireSong 2018. It’s great!

After praying about what he should do, Karl graciously gave his song production prize to our youngest attendee, 14 year old Ethan Lane, who attended with his father all the way from New Foundland. Ethan had shared one of his songs with our panel during the song critique sessions and our mentors loved it!
