Paul Returns to College Alma Mater
Paul was invited back to his college Alma
Mater, Southwestern Assemblies of God University, as special musical
guest to play for Homecoming festivities. Linda Robbins, the Chair of
the Music department invited Paul to play for the Homecoming Alumni Chapel
and for the Pre-Banquet Reception. Paul was especially honored to have
this opportunity and found the students and Alumni very receptive to
his music. He reflects on this experience by saying, "It was a great moment for me to stand up and play in
front of so many generations of students and graduates....it was a high
mark for me to be able to return to SAGU".

Paul plays National Anthem at Texas Rangers game
Early in 2004, Paul was honored to be invited
by the Major League Baseball team, the Texas Rangers to play the National
Anthem for a home game at Ameriquest Field in Arlington. Having played
the National Anthem at numerous sporting events, festivals and outings,
Paul was excited to be one of only a small number of instrumentalists
invited to perform the Star Spangled Banner before the game during the
tenure of the season. Paul had around 60 family and friends come out
to support him and enjoy a beautiful evening at the Ballpark. While it
was a midweek game, the final attendance count was 20,005, but as Paul
stated, "I appreciate the strong show of
support that family and friends gave by coming.....it validated the entire
experience. It was a blast and I am very pleased with the outcome of
the performance and evening."
