John got up off his knees when the guard came to his door. His endless fervent praying throughout the night led him to feel the very presence of Jesus with him, similar as to Shadrack, Meshack, and Abednego. John believed he would not escape his execution as those young men had. There seemed to be no rhyme or reason, but God was conducting the concert of his life.
A son of free black parents, John Marrant was born in the colony of New York on June 15, 1755. Following his father’s death four years later, the family moved to St. Augustine in Spanish Florida, where John learned to read and write in school. After 18 months, the family settled in South Carolina when John was 11 years old.
Desiring for her son to learn a trade, John’s mother sent him to live with his sister in Charles Town (Charlestown), where he would be apprenticed to a master craftsman. As John passed a school one day, he was seized by the sounds of music and dancing flowing from the building. He raced home to inform his sister of his new yearning to become a musician. Unable to persuade her brother away from his new aspiration, she wrote to her mother about the situation.
John’s mother arrived determined to change his mind, yet to no avail. Defeated, John’s mother accompanied him to the school where an arrangement was made for him to study at the facility for 18 months. From the moment a violin was placed in his hands, John realized he made the right choice.
