Atlanta, Georgia -- About 200 people gathered on
May 11, 2013 at Studio One, a live music venue
on the campus of All Saints Parish in Atlanta, Georgia,
to enjoy the music from a local seminarian. But this
was not a typical concert.
“An hour into the event, Fr. Jason Brooks LC processed
in with the Eucharist and all the concert goers adored
Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament for a full half hour
right there in Studio One,” said the featured artist for
the evening, Br. John Klein LC. “It was beautiful!”
The concert began with a 45-minute set of new
songs from Br. John’s new album, which lead beautifully into
a 30-minute time of adoration and heartfelt, prayerful music. After adoration, the crowd got up off their knees
and the music picked backed up again with a few
crowd favorites before the evening concluded.
event is typical of the music ministry of Br. John,
who just released his first full-length album, FEARLESS, this week.
The album can be downloaded or bought via CDBaby. (Download

“The overall message of that night was, ‘Do
not be afraid to seek God’s plan for your life,’”
said Brother John. “He gives you everything and takes nothing
away! Ask Him to show you the mission that He
has called you too and how He wants you to
put your gifts and talents at the service of spreading
His Kingdom. In the face of our culture,
be FEARLESS when it comes to living out your faith!”
During his early seminary studies, Br. John thought
becoming a priest would likely mean giving up his love
for music, but recent experience has shown him, as he
says, “how God´s plan for our lives incorporates our deepest
longings and dreams and uses all our gifts and talents!”
Br. John had the privilege
of performing during World Youth Day 2012 in Madrid, Spain
for what he described as “a few thousand young people
from all around the world,” and he frequently is able
to share his music with young people during his ministry
work in Atlanta. Br. John’s new album includes 13 songs
featuring many of the young people from Atlanta that he
says “God has placed in my path to serve and
accompany.” In fact, the front of the album
pictures the male RC missionaries serving with Br. John in
Atlanta, and two of the female RC missionaries stationed in
Atlanta were featured during the album release concert.
His first short album titled Love is Brave was released
about one year ago at this same time.
