Christian singer, songwriter and musician Jeff Platts, located in southern Idaho, has released an Easter song titled 'Celebrate!' featuring his friend and collaborator Noral Roy. 'Celebrate!' puts the resurrection of Jesus front and center, as Jeff explains: "Easter is an extremely important day for most Christians and the resurrection of Jesus Christ deserves the highest celebration."
Jeff writes original Christian songs and performs them at churches and venues. He is currently recording a new album, which he hopes to release in 2022. The new album will include 'Celebrate!', and his recent single 'Please Don't Let Them', written from the perspective of an unborn child, which was released to mark Sanctity of Human Life month in January.
Discussing his music in an interview with Louder Than The Music, Jeff explains that his songs contain an important truth. "The message that consistently threads through my songs is that believing in the salvation that comes from believing in Jesus isn't all that complicated, as some would have you think. Also, the concept that Christian believers shouldn't fear anything, including death is prominent in my songs. The importance of trusting God with everything, the result of which is peace of mind, is also a huge part of my music.
Jeff's musical roots lie in country-rock and southern blues. On April Fool's Day 1999 Jeff fell off a roof onto a concrete driveway shattering his left elbow. The orthopedic surgeon told him his guitar playing days were over. But the doctor was proven wrong, because God wasn't finished with Jeff yet.
