Mark Schultz – “One Day”

Mark Schultz

Ask Mark Schultz to sum up the album’s theme in one song, and he would point to “One Day,” which got its start while he was on stage singing his hit “I Am.” “I’m looking out in the audience and halfway back, I can see kids in wheelchairs. There’s this one kid in a wheelchair with his fists clenched and his arms t hr own up in the air and tears running down his face. And I got choked up. Right at that moment I thought, ‘Kid, you’re going to get your own song.'” The refrain, in typical Schultz fashion, spotlights bigger possibilities and hope beyond human limitations. “One day we will touch the healer’s hand / One day we will be whole again.” “When I sing it, I think of the kid in the wheelchair, and how when he gets to heaven, he gets to kick that wheelchair to the ground and walk away from it,” Schultz says. “No matter what you’re going t hr ough—cancer, a disease, or being in a wheelchair—it’s powerful to think there’s an endgame to that.”
