TRENDING WITH TIMMERIE: DRAG KID

Karlo Broussard from Catholic Answers is back on Trending with Timmerie Millington. On this episode, they discuss an 11 year old boy – Desmond the drag kid – who was celebrated as one of the youngest drag queens on Good Morning America. They also discuss a famous sex change surgeon who is questioning transgenderism. Sentimentalism is the new ideology getting in the way of the life changing message of the Gospel. Why does this matter? The philosophy of the kid’s movie Smallfoot provides a great teaching moment.

Listen to a fascinating visit with a composer who has written music for Popes, Dioceses, Cathedrals, famous Choirs, Colleges, and Concert Halls. Paul Gibson was born in Sacramento, California.

He received degrees in composition from Mount St. Mary’s University (Los Angeles) and California State University, Northridge. He studied with Matt Doran, Frank Campo, Aurelio de la Vega, Ian Krouse, and John Harbison.

He took part in the first Composers Symposium at the Oregon Bach Festival, where three of his works were performed.For its 15th anniversary, the Los Angeles Children’s Chorus commissioned Suite: Alice Through a Looking-Glass. Commissioned by Loyola Marymount University for the Golden Jubilee of the choral program founded by the late Paul Salamunovich, Gibson’s Te Deum for chorus and orchestra was premiered at LMU under Dr. Mary Breden. The following year saw his music in first performances at Carnegie Hall and St. Olaf College.

This award-winning composer’s music has been broadcast on hundreds of radio stations and received performances by the Los Angeles Master Chorale, the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra, members of the Los Angeles Philharmonic, three Grammy-winning choruses: Los Angeles Chamber Singers, the Kansas City Chorale, and the Phoenix Chorale, and many others.
