Momoh Freeman / About
My faith and gospel music were powerful sources of comfort, strength and survival as a young boy growing up in Liberia during the civil war. I was 9 years old when I first heard a church pianist and knew right then I wanted to learn to play the piano. I walked miles to the next village to practice because we had no piano and I loved the music so much. As I became proficient enough to play in church, the money I made helped buy food when we were hungry in the refugee camp. That faith in the Lord and music still stays with me today.
