The Scatman

In the mid 90s this song was massive! Who remembers Scatman John? Sadly he’s no longer with us but the interesting thing about Scatman John is that he stuttered whenever he spoke, and it was a big problem for him growing up. As a musician though he learned that he could sing, and that he could turn his stutter into something cool by ‘scatting’, which I think means singing something really fast that sounds like made-up words, which you can make up as you go along. Give it a go if you’re confident nobody’s listening! Anyway, he had a massive hurdle to overcome in his life and he overcame it in style. The Bible is full of words from God telling us He has plans for us, that we don’t need to be afraid, that He is with us and will help us when we need Him. So no matter what hurdles we face that scare us and seem too big, help is nearby.

Do you know Him?

I’d love to have a go at this song on karaoke…
