ABBA: A Swedish pop group formed in Stockholm in 1972 who became one of the most commercially successful acts in the history of popular music topping the charts worldwide from 1972 to 1982 with songs like Dancing Queen, Take a Chance on Me and Mamma Mia.

How I know this and why I even care? Jason Helwig.

We met at a bible study Mario and I held a few months ago. Needing someone to lead worship for the study, I commissioned my sister with the job of finding someone to help.

Enter Jason.

He and another friend led worship that night and all I gotta’ say is WOW! What an amazing and incredibly talented pair of musicians and lovers of the LORD they are! Guitars, vocals the whole nine! Definitely pro-status frr-real!

Later that night after almost everyone was gone, Mario and I decided it was ok to stay up past our bed time cause were rebels like that, and Jason and my sister stayed to watch a movie. Being too lazy to hit up the RedBox (thats right, RedBox is how we roll), Mario and I looked around to see if we had anything lying around the house that none of us had already watched.

Enter Mamma Mia.

The first song came on and I promise you that after that, Jason sang along to EVERY lyric of every song on every scene and quickly gave away that he was an avid fan. He explained that the original songs from the movie were by a group called Abba which I had never heard of before. I’m sure there was a blank stare on my face as I said "Ohhh" (Sorry Abba fans- I don't get out much ha!) He went on about their harmonies and reverb and a bunch of other cool musician terms that I am yet to learn the meaning of.

A few weeks ago I had the chance to photograph him and my BE-A-UTIFUL sister on an “Anytime” shoot, and below are some of the images from the day. You can click on the images to enlarge.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going into the next room where Mario is to randomly break out in song to the tune of "Dancing Queen, I am the Dancing Queen"!!!!
