Nathan Pacheco left the audience in applause on Friday, May 4, after his concert in the John W. Hart Auditorium. The audience members had smiles on their faces and phones raised to record. As Pacheco included the entire audience in a few sing-alongs, the sound of the fans cheering could be heard from the halls.
Pacheco dedicated several of the songs to his wife and children. “I sing a lot of love songs, but they have taken on a new meaning since getting married and having kids,” Pacheco said.
Pacheco shared personal stories with his audience to help them connect with him and his songs. He told of the time his 2-year-old son spent several weeks in the neonatal intensive care unit. He said that the song “Forever” was one of the songs that helped him get through the trial.
“It was hard for me; I would just hold my son for hours in the NICU,” Pacheco said. “I would spend hours reading and listening to music while waiting in the hospital. It was around this time that I listened to “Forever” for the first time. As I listened to the words of the song, I felt an enormous peace in my heart even through all the stress and fear.”
Pacheco asked the audience to sing those words with him. As the audience sang the words, “We sing hallelujah, the Lamb has overcome,” many were able to share in his experience.
