Cory A. Henry -- Born with the gift of music
A text by Cory Henry.
Cory Henry then
It is very possible to be born with the gift of music. You see the evidence of this every time you witness a child prodigy. I don’t know if there is a prerequisite that determines who has a this innate gift or not. For instance, do your parents need to be musically gifted or does the gift have to run in your bloodline? Many people discover the gift at an early age and they cultivate that gift in school. Being born with the gift of music is a bit of a broad question to answer. The flip side of everything that I said would be those people who have been born into musical families and are surrounded by musical people, but are not musically inclined. There is no right or wrong answer. It’s also possible for people who aren’t born with music to spend time and develop the gift of music. At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter how you acquire a gift, as long as you have the gift.

God bless u Corey Henry. I've been watching your videos on YouTube from west Africa (Ghana).
You are an inspiration to us.
Cory Henry is a cosmic force that was chucked into our lifetime to show us that the music is out there if we are open to channeling and expressing it.
The sheer power, groove, beauty and virtuosity of this man is only equaled by his humility and sense of humor. Watching him play and hearing him talk about the art of making and living music is nothing short of life changing for a piano player who aspires to incorporate his own twist into the music scene.
I only started 7 years ago, but I know that as long as we have men like Cory, we have nothing to worry about in regards to leaving a jazz fueled musical heritage to those who will live in our era.
It is also reassuring to hear him talk about the importance of listening and living the music rather than enclosing yourself within a practice room for ten hours at a time.
For those who love his work, I highly suggest checking out the array of videos that are available on youtube of his workshops and appearances in churches to get a dose of just how flexible this musician is in his craft. I'm glad to say that I can look upon a new jazz master that resonates with the modern state of the music industry and pushes to create innovative music. Thank you Cory Henry and whether you read this or not, know that all of the listeners appreciate the sheer awesomeness of what you can create through music. Much love brother.
you are the greatest
i see you as a role model you are the reason i play drums and keyboard
Cory has being a musician of how time that God intentionally made him known to us to see what he has deposited in human dream to see you face to face one day and to see you in africa(nigeria) and I believe it will love you CORY. Paul from nigeria
