“Life in the Key of God”

In Word and Work: An Intersection, Concordia Seminary, St. Louis, President Emeritus Dr. Dale A. Meyer talks with Heather Choate Davis, an L.A.-based author who released her first album of songs in 2020 called the “Life in the Key of God.” Davis—who didn’t play music for 58 years—learned piano, composition, music theory, choral training and notation software over a year’s time and wrote the music and lyrics for the 10 songs on the album, which were performed by others. “I’ve always been a writer. … but never music. I didn’t play instruments, I didn’t sing in a choir, I couldn’t read music. I didn’t know anything and all of a sudden I started hearing songs,” Davis says. “It’s been a really remarkable journey.”

The album is available from most streaming services. Read more about Davis and the album at https://heatherchoatedavis.com/4457-2/.
