If you read the bible, then you know of the part when Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” (Matthew 19:14)

He wasn’t kidding.

You will find Jesus referencing children many times in scripture. There’s a special place for kids in God’s heart.

You will also find that songs are used throughout the bible when giving thanks or praise to God.

This is why, in any church, any religious service you go to, there is always singing.

It is a means of communicating with the Creator.

Heck, Even non-Christian practices have music!

Little Westin does not hold back, belting out the song from start to finish with his pure little heart behind the words.

The Asidors are pretty popular wedding singers in the province of Davao and other parts of the country.

“Our style is flexible because of the requests of the audience. As gospel singers, we are used to blend voices and sing the songs from the heart. The group’s style fits ballad, gospel, R&B, jazz, bossa nova and others.” says Milx Asidor

This family of gospel singers decided to use their talents to bring people closer to God as well.
