and welcome to the world of Boh Cooper. 2013 finds me preparing
to go on the longest tour I've been on in awhile with former Monkee,
Michael Nesmith. We will be in 15 cities across USA from Mar.
24-April 17. I worked on another short film last fall called "Captivated"
by a talented film student named Julia Jones. I Here is the link
to my composer
demos where you can hear cues from the score and other things
I've been working on.
I have been so blessed in my life with the opportunity to tour
with one of my biggest musical heroes, David Foster.
Cetera recomended me to David, and after an audition at his studio
in Santa Monica, he hired me to play keyboards in his band! I've
had the time of my life performing with Nathan East, John Robinson,
Randy Waldman, Tariqh Akoni, Mo Pleasure, Michael Thompson, and
of course the infamous David Foster. It is a joy to hear him play
piano night after night. After a show one night I told him, "Frostie,
meeting you is like my kid meeting Batman! You are a superhero!"
"Wow!" he replied, "I hope I didn't let you down".
To which I said, "No way. It is an honor to work with you
and I'll do it again anytime". Then he said, "You had
my back so hard it was ridiculous". He loved being on his
first tour as an artist, and he impressed me with his sense of
humor, his friendliness and generosity. I thank the Lord for giving
me this opportunity of a lifetime, and I will never forget it.
(Shout outs to my new friend, Matthew DelaPola, David's awesome
In December of 2010, David invited me out to his home studio in
Malibu to program for him on the Jackie Evancho project. Jackie
is the 10 year old singing sensation who was discovered on America's
Got Talent. It was a dream come true. I stayed in his guest room
for a week overlooking the Pacific Ocean and worked closely with
my musical hero. I even got to arrange the orchestra on a tune!
We shared dinners together with his family and I got to meet his
fine team of programmers and engineers. One of David's constant
phrases is "Good is the enemy of Great". We worked hard
to make the tracks for Jackie more than good, but great! Also,
David said something else that amazed me..."Everything I
produce comes through my fingers." He doesn't notate parts.
He just plays them on the keyboard, and what playing he does!
What a fascinating experience!! Wow!!! Is all I can say.
I am still arranging, composing, preparing music, touring and

God, please make me a blessing to someone today. Help me to live
courageously and sanely, amen!"
wrote a praise song that speaks the truth from God's point of
view about us.
It's called, "I am Worthy"
a voice that says I'll never be enough
That no matter what I do I don't deserve Your love
But when I look into your eyes
I see a love that overshadows every lie
I am wonderful, I am beautiful
I am totally forgiven, I am good, I am enough
By Your grace I am holy, by your power I am strong,
I'm valuable and precious to You
I am worthy of Your love.
wrote a similar song, with a little more groovacious-ness, that
"I am amazing, and guess what, so are you!"
day count! Remember, you are lovable, you are enough, and you
are worthy of great love.
Bo with an
here to see Luke's first steps!!! (He's 6 now, but I still
love that little guy!)
