Gordon Mote Performs on TBNs ‘Huckabee’ Show

 New Haven Records Christian music artist Gordon Mote and his wife, Kimberly, recently appeared on Huckabee to share their inspiring testimonies of how the Lord has blessed them through the years. The popular show, hosted by former Arkansas Governor and political pundit Mike Huckabee, airs weekly on TBN.

Mote, a three-time Academy of Country Music award-winner for piano/keyboard player of the year, recounted how it all began, “The only way you can explain it is that it’s a miracle from God. One Thanksgiving Day at my family’s house, everyone was cooking, playing, watching football, all the stuff that families do. They heard my grandmother’s old upright piano and wondered who was playing. When they came in, they couldn’t believe it when they saw me, this little bitty guy, three years old, playing ‘Jesus Loves Me’ with both hands.”

If that wasn’t amazing enough, Gordon has been blind from birth.

“Although I had hoped to do something in music,” Mote continued, “I never dreamed I would be able to do what God has allowed me to do.” After graduating from Nashville’s Belmont University with honors, Mote was asked to join the Lee Greenwood band. Since then, Mote has become an in-demand concert and studio musician playing, touring and recording with some of Country and Gospel music’s biggest artists, including Porter Wagoner, the Gaither Vocal Band, Brad Paisley, Carrie Underwood, Rascal Flatts, Darius Rucker, Blake Shelton, Trisha Yearwood, and Alan Jackson, among others.

Host Mike Huckabee asked Gordon’s wife Kimberly about how their relationship began. She recalled, “One of the things that amazed me is that you forget he was blind; he was just so easy to be around…. He had every quality I that I ever wanted in a guy; the only drawback was that he couldn’t drive, and I decided that just didn’t matter!” Their marriage has flourished over the years. In a special online “After the Show” segment, Gordon performed “If They Could See You Through My Eyes,” a love song to Kimberly. To introduce the piece, Gordon said, “I wanted the world to know I see a lot more than you think!”
