Karissa Ella Sings 'He Walked On Water' As Randy Travis Looks On

Old meets new as rising country star Karissa Ella performs the Randy Travis classic, ‘He Walked On Water.’ 

This 1990 hit went all the way to number 2 on the country charts for the beloved singer-songwriter. 

The song tells the story of a young child and their love and admiration for their great-grandfather. 

“He wore starched white shirts buttoned at the neck
And he'd sit in the shade and watch the chickens peck
And his teeth were gone, but what the heck
I thought that he walked on water”

Randy Travis first broke onto the music scene in the 1980s.

His deep and distinctive voice gave us hits such as ‘Deeper Than The Holler’ and ‘Three Wooden Crosses.’ But a devastating stroke in 2013 nearly took his life. He had to relearn everything including eating, talking and walking.

While Randy still hasn’t returned to singing, he has helped numerous artists on their musical journey.

Today, Randy is watching on as country newcomer Karissa Ella performs his single, ‘He Walked On Water.’

“But if the story was told, only heaven knows
But his hat seemed to me like an old halo
And though his wings, they were never seen
I thought that he walked on water”

So many people connect with this special song. One viewer wrote, “Randy is a living legend! She did an amazing job on this song. It's great to see so much love being spread.”

Another said, “God bless Randy. Great job, Karissa. This was a blessing.”

What an incredible moment to watch the next generation pay tribute to a country legend like Randy Travis!
