4Him - 25th Anniversary Tour "Real Thing"

For many years 4Him blessed us with great music. In fact, more than 25 years of great music!
In November of 2015, my daughter Hannah surprised me with tickets to their last tour together, their "25th Anniversary Tour." What a joy it was to be there, hearing my favorite group of all time, sharing songs that I had listened to, probably in all of those 25 years.
In fact, when my four kids were older (Josh Ben, Hannah, and Christen), I heard them make comments about our family car travel times, listening to 4Him CDs. (And probably cassette tapes before then.)
Their song "Real Thing", really strikes at the heart of the matter, when we think about the world we live in, the people around us, and how we all need Jesus. He is the real thing.
Be blessed in your listening, as your heart catches the message, while your spirit longs to see the world...come to Jesus.
Jesus - the Real Thing.
Shalom my friends,
Love For His People, Inc.
P.S. The YouTube recording you are about to hear is from that 25th Anniversary Tour itself. Hannah, Ben and I were also able to receive "pre-show" interview tickets with the guys when someone wasn't able to attend, and thus we got great seats near the front. My Canon SureShot camera had a workout, recording many videos and still shots during the interview time and concert that followed.
Enjoy the love that comes through the lyrics.
