Tragedy has a way of opening up vistas into God's grace and mercy otherwise unassailable. The value of David Dunn's "Yellow Balloons" is in the insights he offers precisely because he has had been through some of the most difficult times. Take the song "I Don't Have to Worry" as an example, how could Dunn ever sing "the lion's den is the safest place" unless he himself have had been with the lions a time or two. Brimming with great spiritual insights coming not from a high chair but from a man who has had walked through life's furnace, this is an album will definitely open up a new appreciation of God's grace. "Yellow Balloons," Dunn's sophomore release for BEC Recordings, is definitely a product baked with the fires of trials. During a rare visit to his hometown of Midland, Texas, for a show, Dunn stopped by his sister's house to visit his two young nieces. Before he left, his sister put the youngest down for a nap, but she never woke up. To this day, the cause of death remains unexplainable, leaving the family with a broken heart and a well of unanswered questions. The 10 songs that form "Yellow Balloons" came out of these months of wrestling with grief, pain, and sufferings.
