TobyMac performed his first concert since the death of his son on Saturday night. TobyMac's son Truett was found dead at his home in Nashville on October 23, 2019, at age 21, when the Nashville Fire Department responded to a cardiac arrest report. This is the first time he has taken the stage since he cut his tour short after hearing the news while in Canada last year.
When TobyMac took the stage, this is what he said. "I appreciate the prayers, I appreciate the encouraging posts on social media. We are grateful to you. Thank you so much for surrounding us with love."
Someone told me once, "When something like this happens, and you experience loss like this you're going to startreaching for these promises of God. And some of them you thought he promised you, but you might of been mistaken. God didn't promise you no suffering or pain or loss. But the promise I've been holding onto is that God will never leave us or forsake us. I'm believing that for me as well as my son, that God will never leave us or forsake us."
TobyMac then went on to sing 'The Elements' and over-emphasized the line "This world always tryin' to rip my family apart". The chorus then says,
"I'll fight the elements
I got spirit, I got faith
I might bend but I won't break
I'll fight the elements"
Toby Mac recently released a new song called "21 Years", dedicated to his son's memory.
