Hi, this is Marty Goetz. I am a messianic singer, songwriter, and recording artist. Welcome to God Today. I became a believer in Jesus right out of the bars. I used to pay in cabarets and bars, and take requests from people that put money in my cup – just like Billy Joel. I used to love to play songs from Broadway – that was my favorite – Broadway and show tunes. I sang them for myself and I sang them so people would think that I could sing really well. That was what my life was all about. It was all about me. The songs were for me.
At a certain time in my life, I had friends praying for me. They prayed for me to receive Jesus, or Yeshua as we say in Hebrew. I didn’t want to have anything to do with it. As a matter of fact, I was playing at a cabaret in New York City. They come in, these Christian friends of mine and they wait to tell me the great plan God had for my life and I said, “I gotta get out of New York, you people are ‘meshuggah’. I gotta go where people are normal.” So, I moved to Los Angeles. Where everybody is normal – haha!
