Big Daddy Weave's "Redeemed" Causes a Courtroom Confession

When Danny Holmes took the stand in a Tennessee courtroom, he confessed to killing a man.  The courtroom was stunned.  And then he was sentenced to life in prison.
 
Holmes told the court he was convinced to confess after listening to the words of the song Redeemed” by Big Daddy Weave
 
“Then you look at this prisoner and say to me
‘Son, stop fighting a fight that’s already been won.’
I am redeemed.  You set me free.”


Holmes said, “For 30 years, I ain’t never fought for anything that made sense.  But I knew the Lord was telling me to fight for Him this time.”  He looked at his weeping mother and said, “Momma, you know I love you.  But Momma, I promise you, your baby boy, he’s going to serve the Lord forever.”
 
It’s not the first time that song has changed a life.  In 2012, rock singer Zach Williams heard the song while touring in Europe.  He canceled the tour and went home to his wife.  Four years later he wrote “Chain Breaker.”
