Mark Masri has been performing musically for over 15 years and has now been nominated for a Juno Award for his album "Beating Heart" in the category of Adult Contemporary Album of the Year.
Mark says, "The only way we gain the perspective that's required to keep at this (music) is through experience." He has experienced great successes and has learned how to handle unmet expectations. In the music industry, things are changing all the time. "Sometimes, there are incredible opportunities that we think are going to be the tipping point but nothing happens. We can easily be disappointed and discouraged and tempted to give up and walk away."
He has learned as he's gotten older that the looser he holds on to his gift, the more God has been able to do with it.
Mark says, "It's not that I don't want to achieve greatness for His glory, but it must be on His terms and the only way it happens is if I let go and let him do it."
The Juno Awards will take place April 2, 2017.
