Ernie Haase comments: â€œBack a few years ago, when Wayne first came on as our musical producer and began traveling with us full-time, he started singing some of these tunes in rehearsal and one night, I asked him to sing one on stage and our friends in the audience loved it! From that night on, heâ€™s performed every night. And then it happened; people started asking for this project. So for everyone who requested it, itâ€™s here!
