Engaging with the Holy Spirit

I have been a Hillsong music fan. I've owned just about every album(video)that they've produced. For a while I was in their choir (not for long, as I had to stop because of the morning sickness). In that I think I can say what my favourite album is. Have a guess?
It's the one that I've bought over and over. And it's my favourite of all times. I play it in the car, in the house, and it's always the one that I choose as a gift for my friends, and they love it, too. I miss it when I lose it, although I've played it numerous times. It always makes me feel the beauty and richness of the presence of the Holy Spirit.
It's the instrumental worship album by Russell Fragar. (Did you guess it right?)
Russell is such an annointed keyboard player. It was a shock for me to know that he started learning piano when he was 18(maybe not exactly right, but something like that). I have always believed somehow in the back of my mind that you have to start young to be technicly brilliant to achieve success. But Russell's piano is definately one of the best of all the musicians that I've ever heard.
I also have a good personal friend that has amazing gift in piano. He's not famous(yet), but I've never seen anyone play like he does, his skills will often make people dumbfounded.(Bear in mind, I grew up in a professional pianists' family). But again, I was amazed to find out that he taught himself how to play as an adult and he doesn't even read music. He said, "it's the gift."
Russell also writes beautiful songs. I heard someone said, the angels come to his bedside and sing to him. Probably that's why the songs he writes are so heavenly orientated.
It's sad to see some of the dancers, singers or musos will often "do their things" without engaging with the Holy Spirit. They can be technically perfect and brilliant, but without the annointing, you just feel it's such a waste.
The purpose of music is to bring the Lord's presence down. When we worship in truth and in the Spirit, we can have a spirit to spirit direct contact with the Lord. Music is not something extra for entertainment, but a powerful means to have communion with the Lord, as He dwells in our praise and worship.
