In this segment of our exclusive student interviews, we will learn about and rising musician Kasper Ball. Kasper was interviewed by Boston Gambale a student in the trailblazer program. Kasper began playing music at the age of six but it wasn’t something that he enjoyed doing.
It wasn’t until the death of his father when he was eleven years old that Kasper began to discover the healing and, freedom to process and express his feelings through his music. The emotions that felt trapped inside found its way out through his songs. Kasper writes and plays his own music.
Although Kasper found freedom and expression through his music he still felt incomplete. He knew something was missing. He felt like there was a void that needed to be filled. That led Kasper on a quest to find answers. He began to search and it led him to explore and experiment with thoughts, ideas and habits that was new and unfamiliar.
In a moment of complete weakness Kasper came to a moment of complete desperation. It was then, that he fell to his knees, in April of 2013 and in that moment he surrendered his life to God.
Kasper was introduced to the idea of a relationship with God through his mother at a very early age, but He never really grasped the concept until about two years ago.
Following his life change experience, living and life began to have meaning and his purpose became clearer. Kasper will be the first to tell you he loves to play, record and write music and that there is a much bigger purpose to the sound, and passion to his music. “My sole mission is to play music to honor the one who has granted him love, freedom and most importantly unconditional love. He honors his talent to the one it came from and his belief in God. He infuses god in all his music even though it against the culture and norm, but he doesn’t want to live life any other way.
In the next five years, Kasper’s vision for his life is to serve as a missionary in Uganda, Africa teaching kids music and to show them the love of God. Kasper has seen God do miraculous things in his life. He has witnessed people get healed.
