The former leader singer of Kansas, whose amazing video for his new single tells the story of his adopted daughter’s birth and surviving an abortion, has saved three babies from abortion.
John Elefante released a music video for the song, “This Time,” which was inspired by his adopted daughter Sami’s birth. Posted to YouTube and announced on September 16th, the video quickly went viral, with more than 100,000 views in just the first five days. With more than 330,000 views now, the video is not just changing hearts and minds, it is save lives.
Elefante, a highly-regarded singer who fronted the Christian rock band Mastedon and has produced albums for dozens of top-selling Christian artists, tells LifeNews today that This Time has now saved at least three babies from abortion.
The singer told LifeNews the babies the song has saved demonstrate the power of God to use the medium of music videos to change lives.
“When I first completed the song, I sat back and listened to it, my eyes welled up with tears of joy when I thought of what might have been had not for Sami’s birth-mother choosing life,” he said. “My very next thought was, this song has some kind of anointing about it, power that could give hope to someone contemplating an abortion at the same time planting the seed that adoption could be the answer and a perfect option.”
Elefante added, “I prayed to myself, Lord if we could just save one life with this song, just one, then it’s all worth it, just one life would validate the anointing, you have placed upon it. Now after the video has come out it has brought this powerful song to another level, it enables one to visualize the message within.”
“There have now been 3 testimonies (that we know of) of young women that have chosen life as a result of this music video. I pray for MANY MANY more,” he said.
One viewer talked about a baby saved:
I cried!!!! I luv this song I am showing my cousin this who is 15 ans pregnant right now and is thinking about an abortion
My cousin said she just watched it and she said she cried and isn’t going to abort, she is going to keep it omg what an inspirational song!!
Elefante also received a very inspiring email from a viewer about a second baby saved.
Let me explain, I’m a prisoner transportation officer on this day I took an inmate who is pregnant to an ultra sound appointment. I have been to many of these appointments and should not be surprised when God shows me an opening to witness. This day I was tired and thinking of what I was going to do after I drop her back off at her institution. I began looking at my email and started watching your video on ” a baby was saved. ” if coursed it moved me since I am very passionate on the topic of about abortion.
Once the ultrasound was complete I was ready to go. My prisoner was troubled, not what I needed I had things to do. But God reminded me I need to slow down, be companionate. So half heartedly I ask her what ways troubling her? In short she was struggling with the question to abort or not, after small conversation and understanding she felt God was trying to talk me out of an abortion. Well I felt as if God had just hit me, show he the video! I told her God has given me a video that He wants to to see.
I told her there is no mistake that God had me open this email, at this time, while transporting you to this appointment, as you are struggling with the lie of the World or Gods truth. We watched the video together and right there she promised me she was keeping the baby and is going to share with other prisoners and thanked me. I told her THANK GOD! And you for following Gods will.
And another email told Elefante of a third baby saved.
A 20 year old young women who was told by her parents that she would be dis-owned unless she aborted, she was very compelled by the video and we are still working with her to help her get her life back on track even today, it is quite a shock to be thrown in the street for not wanting to kill an innocent child. The good news is we have found her a very loving family that has taken her in and is providing for her and taking her to and from school and work since her car was taken away as well. It is a combination of many things that has added up to her deciding not to abort, but all are related to the This Time video. Even the family that took her in is a result of the video.
