Today's program features the music of Troy Mitchell.
Troy brings a fresh and authentic voice to Messianic
Judaism. His original songs draw from the Gospels, the Hebrew of the
Tanach, the Midrash, synagogue prayers, and first-century liturgy. They
even utilize the Greek of the Apostolic Scriptures to bring a fusion of
Chassidic joy, gospel hope, jazz, acoustic soul food and soulish prayer
focused on the light of Messiah. Troy's ability to almost become one with
the music comes from leading and/or playing with worship bands since the
early '90s. He has been challenged by blindness most of his life and
has used music as a way to connect with Hashem and other people. His
love for the Psalms, liturgy, the words of Yeshua and his involvement in
the synagogue has given the movement unique melodies. Even more than
that, it has instilled in him a passion for seeing everyone have a
chance to draw closer to HaShem through music and prayer.
Before Troy became Messianic, he was a music minister at an Assembly of God church. He currently does the music for the contemporary service at a Messianic synagogue called Beth Immanuel in Hudson Wisconsin. Troy has two albums out currently. The first album is called "Yoke of
the King" and the newest one is called "Light of the World."
