An exciting new opportunity starts tonight!

Hello Friends!

I have exciting news for you!  I just wrote a brand new song called “Fearless,” which has not been officially released yet, but there is a live video on my YouTube Channel that you can check out here: https://youtu.be/G3xj6dRRa20?si=DnDG6TAtZypszB4Z.  I wrote this song as an anthem based on Psalm 46 to help remind us that God is our shelter, and that in Him, we don't have to be afraid.  

I recently entered this song into the You, God's Music Showcase, and was accepted into the first round of voting!  This non-profit organization was created to “promote up-and-coming Christian artists and encourage unity and joy among Christian groups through music.”  You can find out more about the organization and the Showcase here: https://yougodsmusic.org.  

Since we moved to Tennessee, I have been praying that God would show me a way to financially be able to record and release more of the songs I have written.  YouTube is free, and nothing will stop me from continuing to post my weekly videos, but getting songs professionally recorded for release on streaming services costs upwards of $2,000 per song.  Before we moved, I taught piano lessons that provided steady income that I used for production fees on my 5 singles, but in Tennessee I have really sensed that God has a different plan in mind to pay for those recordings.  Our church has also been doing 21 days of prayer and fasting to seek wisdom and direction about possibly looking for a larger location to meet the needs of our growing body.  My prayer is that through doing this competition, and choosing my church (Fellowship West) as my charitable organization, perhaps both of those needs could be served in some measure.  

If you would like to join me on this journey with any amount of financial contribution, there will (hopefully) be 4 opportunities to do so if I make it through all four rounds of voting (see the image above for specific details).  Please do not feel obligated to “vote” financially in any way, but I would treasure any and all prayers for this journey.  The Grand Prize includes a Recording Artists Package valued at $10,000, in addition to all funds raised during the voting process for myself (which I would use to record and release more music) and my church.  

I must confess, dreaming this big is scary.  I have a hard time even allowing myself to imagine that I could make it to the finals.  But with God, NOTHING is impossible!  As the lyrics in my song say, “I can be fearless in His fortress!”  Would you join me in prayer that I would honor God throughout the course of this showcase? Also, pray for direction as I consider which songs to submit if I make it to each successive round.  Also, pray for those who feel led to support this endeavor financially through voting.  May God multiply their blessings beyond measure!
