"This amazing DVD is done in a classical concert setting, but it is not "stuffy." There are many personal notes and comments, which make it more personal. Anthony personally tells his life story, including being so badly burned as a baby. He tells of his miraculous recovery, his early discovery of his piano talent (he played the piano at age 3). He talks about his "artist burn-out," where he didn't touch the piano for about a year, and coming back to the Piano eventually.
He had an amazing talent, a unique ability to mix moods and genres in his medleys. He'll be truly missed in the world of music.
Here are the songs on the DVD:
1. Rhapsody in Blue / Shout to the Lord
2. Holy Holy Holy
3. They Story Medley / Tell me the Story of Jesus/ Holy Spirit Thou Art Welcome
4. Great is Thy Faithfulness / How Big is God / How Great Thou Art
5. Lily of the Valley
6. A Dream Is A Wish Your Heart Makes (featuring the backup voices of Lee College)
7. Over the Rainbow (featuring Janet Paschal)
8. God Leads Us Along
9. Friends Medley
10. When they Ring Those Golden Bells (featuring Anthony's Dad, Richard)
11. Swingin' My Way Back Home
12. Old Time Religion / William Tell Overture
13. Clair De Lune / Jesus Loves Me
14. No More Light (featuring (Anthony's Daughter) Lori)
15. Themes from Exodus
16. Ain't No Mountain High Enough
17. He Lives Medley
18. The Stranger (A solo by Anthony)
19. Something About That Name
20. The King Is Coming
21. The Hallelujah Chorus
There are also Bonus Materials: A "behind the scenes," a 7-minute Autobiography with Anthony, his Mom & Dad, and a short description by Anthony explaining how he and others got together and worked to make the musical project behind this DVD.
This is "more than your money's worth," and includes many secular themes and music that you won't hear in the Gaither Video Series that Anthony was in, as well.

"This DVD is done in a concert setting. The artistry is brilliant. I like the way he integrates classical music in his arrangements. Every song is done to perfection."
