Christy and the New Creation
Enjoy some past videos with Christy and the New Creation. For over 10 years I had the opportunity to play with this trio of myself, Bryce Christensen on violin, and Christy Humphries on piano and vocals. We played concerts in small as well as large venues through Iowa, as well as Illinois, Wisconsin, and Colorado.
Christy Humphries, pianist, survived a fire which left her burned over 87% of her body, with her hands and arms sustaining the worst burns. After over 80 surgeries, she was able to play the piano again. With one hand resembling a claw and the other surgically fused, there was only the use of 3 fingers at one time. A team of 14 physicians at the University of Iowa were unable to explain how hands that were once trained to play the piano with 10 fingers could translate into 3 at the rate of speed that you see here. They called what you are seeing, a miracle.
I would encourage you to watch in full screen, especially on those videos which include close-ups of Christy's hands, so you can experience what we got to witness on a regular basis. Some pieces are entirely instrumental while some also include vocal.
More videos and audio to be added, including some of Christy's story. Check back here or also on youtube.
