Jessy Dixon has gone



Jessy Dixon, a singer and songwriter who helped popularize gospel music with his energetic style and who found a wider audience touring and recording with Paul Simon, died on Monday at his home in Chicago. He was 73.

Mr. Dixon wrote more than 200 songs in a career that spanned five decades. He was perhaps best known for his 1993 hit “I Am Redeemed,” which remained on the gospel and Christian charts for five years. He also composed songs for several pop singers, among them Randy Crawford, Cher, Diana Ross, Natalie Cole and Amy Grant.

Marc Martel (Downhere) – o voce de aur

Una dintre formaţiile mele favorite din CCM este Downhere. Muzica lor are de toate, începând cu calitatea textelor.
Componenţa actuală a formaţiei este:
Marc Martel – vocal, chitară
Jason Germain – vocal, chitară, pian
Glenn Lavender – bas
Jeremy Thiessen – tobe

Unul dintre lucrurile pe care Downhere le are din plin este calitatea interpretării vocale. Două voci deosebite contribuie la aceasta: Marc Martel şi Jason Germain.
Până recent s-a ştiut mai puţin faptul că Marc Martel are un dar deosbit: poate interpreta piese “imitând” vocea unor artişti celebri.
Iată-l interpretând Asleep in the Light, o melodie de referinţă a lui Keith Green.

 

Who is Mr. Lovewell?



Who is Mr. Lovewell? (Love well)

He’s an idea.
He’s a movement.
He’s the hope that the little things can add up to a big change.
He’s what the Bible has already called us to do: love one another. Look for the best in people. Give people a chance regardless of status, race or gender.
Mr. Lovewell is the understanding that the gospel is for everyone. Some may receive it, some may reject it, but, from where we’re standing, all that should matter is that the Gospel applies to us all.
