Ed Sheeran on Kidd Kraddick in the Morning

August 7, 2013

Every year for the past few years, Kidd Kraddick in the Morning takes a week during the month of February to make dreams come true for many listeners in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King. They call it Dream Week. They have done everything from arranging for a listener to pet a bear to paying for in vitro fertilization for a couple struggling to have children.

Anyways, I have been a huge supporter of him for a long time, and when I found out that he was going to be leading worship at my church, I immediately texted my buddy on staff there to secure my place as photographer for the evening. I have seen The Almost twice and UnderOath about 5 times, and it was really cool to see Aaron without all of the production, strictly worshipping God and nothing else. Here are some of the photos I was able to grab…
