In this Baha’i Blog Studio Session, we’re in Phoenix, Arizona with Carl Brehmer who sings “I Am the Promised One” from the Bab’s address in The Dawn-Breakers.

I am, I am, I am, the promised One!
The One whose name you have for a thousand years invoked
at whose mention you have risen, and the advent of whose Revelation you have prayed God to hasten.
I am, the promised one.

Randomly bursting into song is a daily occurrence for Jordan, something which his friends find both hilarious and terrifying, however, for their own survival, they have grown accustomed to acts of randomness. Growing up in both the Czech Republic and Australia, and looking like he’s from neither, Jordan took to creating Youtube videos from a young age, the intention of his content is to make people happy and hopefully spread some positivity juice. He is now studying Media in Melbourne Australia, and singing for his classmates. (he really does not sing that much)

  1. Nice video! You need to check out Stephen Hampton in Chattanooga TN. He’s fairly legendary in Southeast with the music he’s written to Bahai Writings. He’s retired & has volumes of music.

  2. I really appreciated this! It has so many elements of classic American Bluegrass style. The Revelation of Baha’u’llah can accommodate all cultures and forms of expression that are unifying. Thanks for this.
