Simply for You
HC Derksen Music has always been a special part of HC Derksen's life. He began playing guitar when he was 13 years old listening to the radio and playing from books. For 30 years he added his voice to his church choir and sang in quartets. A professional opera singer provided voice lessons. During the past few years he began composing music and writing lyrics. When music is that important, sharing it with others seems natural and the right thing to do. HC's first CD, Miracles, was released in April, 2004. It's a beautiful collection of nine gospel songs, eight written by him while the ninth is his arrangement of 'Create In Me a Clean Heart.' His message of inspiration to his listeners comes directly from his heart. HC Derksen's purpose for performing, writing music, and playing his guitar is to bring glory, honor and praise to the Creator of all that is seen and unseen and to His son, Jesus Christ. HC believes that God is the reason that he has hope for the future and why he can sing with joy. Making music is relaxing. HC finds that it is a stress reliever. When he plays his guitar, he thinks of the words of the music instead of pressures of the day. 'Music helps calm the spirit.'
