Last fall I arrived at Boone's Chapel Baptist Church located about half-way between Prattvile and Clanton (off of the beaten path) and saw a tour bus parked in front. I didn't realize what was in store for me and everyone who was in church that morning. In this country church, Anthony Burger gave a concert performace as if he were in front of a civic center full of worshipers. His fingers moved across the piano with such feeling...there is no way to tell anyone how fulfilling it was to hear him witness throgh his music. I am truly thankful!
