Heartcall Music… a psalm with a sound
Heartcall Music… features the music of Ken Verheecke, a Native-American Yu’pik Eskimo. This ministry of music began in the summer of 1991. Through music, Ken is effectively communicating the love of God to His people and to those who have never heard His message of redemption.
Ken has released several albums since his debut album in 1993. To date he has had approx. 220,000 plus album downloads through various digital sites.
Ken was a resident of South Dakota since 1978 and has recently relocated to Northern Michigan where he lived during his teen years. As a child Ken’s father was in the Air Force, which required the family to move every 2 years, which heavily influenced Ken by the change of surroundings and culture. Not having any other musicians in his family, Ken tried out his first instrument – a ukulele – which didn’t last long. Later on Ken started playing the guitar at the age of 19. He found that he picked up learning the instrument quickly and it soon became his passion, still to this day playing the guitar from the moment he rises until the days ends.
Praise and Worship are areas of strength when Ken is sharing in concert. A Psalmist would best describe the calling that ke holds. Ken has many strengths, all of which allow him to reach the audience deeper and still none overpower his love for the people. Yes, he sings, yet it is with passion rivaled by few. His songwriting skills are tremendous, expressing a passion for God by one who has been touched by the grace of God.
He plays guitar with a confidence that immediately captures the ear. In addition to his musical skill, there is a level of communication both on and off the stage that sets him apart as an artist. He is definitely a communicator in many ways and at many levels. He is an artist that must be experienced first had to fully appreciate.
As a 13 year old, Ken discovered (and still is) a love and forgiveness that only God could give. What began as a hobby as a 19 year old, developed into something special… music from one who knows the love and forgiveness of God like never before. God is good… ALL the time…
