This song was inspired by Psalm 107 and written in response of the tragic and unexpected passing of Dustin Unger. Dustin was 3 months old when is father Drew found him unresponsive on Fathers day morning in 2017. Drew had been struggling with a major drug and alcohol addiction for many years and this tragedy led him to one of the darkest places he had ever been. Drew was in desperate need of “Deliverance!” Shortly after baby Dustin passed away, Drew’s older brother and pastor; Justin Unger was up at Forest Home in the California mountains where he began to write this song of deliverance for his little brother in hopes that one day Drew would be restored and might even sing this song and share this message with the world. Well that time has come! Drew is now 2 years sober and has been delivered from the drugs and alcohol that once held him. He is now a worship leader with Likewise Worship in Scottsdale Arizona and continues to use his story to reach and lead many to the ONE who sets the captives free.
“HE DELIVERED ME” is a powerful song of redemption and restoration and features Drew Unger, one of Likewise Worship’s many gifted worship leaders.
