(Music Inspired By) The Story

The Bible. It’s the foundation of our faith, filled with amazing tales of bravery and betrayal, romance and redemption.
These age-old stories teach us valuable lessons about the God we serve and the way He wants us to live, but how well do we really know them?

Award-winning authors Randy Frazee and Max Lucado, who himself has more than 100 million products in print, wanted to make them more accessible and encourage further engagement of the Bible so they partnered with Zondervan to create The Story, which contains 31 chapters (stories) from the Bible told as one seamless story from beginning to end.
Additionally, Randy and Max penned new books built around these 31 key stories from the Bible providing further insight into the characters.
With these resources as a foundation, Dove Award-winning artist Nichole Nordeman and Dove Award-winning producer Bernie Herms teamed up to give those same timeless stories a modern musical voice.
This new two-disc project entitled (Music Inspired By) The Story, is the brainchild of successful artist manager Norman Miller, and features a who’s who of Christian artists, who collectively have sold nearly 75 million albums.
With everyone from Amy Grant, Brandon Heath, Mac Powell, and Chris Tomlin to Francesca Battistelli, Bart Millard, Natalie Grant, and Mandisa taking part, (Music Inspired By) The Story features 18 songs and 24 artists in all. 


Despărţiri (necesare)

În articolul  Despărţiri (nenecesare) spuneam că sunt situaţii în viaţă când trebuie să păstrăm cu orice preţ anumite lucruri.
Tot atât de adevărat este că renunţarea face parte din logica vieţii.
Ne despărţim de perioade din viaţă, renunţăm la o casă, la locul unde am crescut, sau chiar la ţara unde am trăit.
Ne despărţim de copiii care au crescut şi îşi croiesc propria lor viaţă.
Ne despărţim de căldura părinţilor, plecând la şcoală sau întemeindu-ne propria familie.
Fiecare renunţă la ceva, în mod voluntar sau pierde ceva, chiar dacă nu ar vrea.
Câteodată doare cumplit.
Înţelept este nu cel nesimţitor, ci cel ce înţelege logica despărţirii.
În sens spiritual despărţirea de orice e vremelnic nu e o tregedie. Ba dimpotrivă.
Despărţirea de vremelnicie e calea către veşnicie.

Versuri (Lyrics):


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.

Christians Launch ‘Doing the Right Thing’ Movement

Tens of thousands of Christians from across the country tuned in to a live webcast on Saturday to witness the launch of the “Doing the Right Thing” movement.
The grassroots movement is being led by (Chuck) Colson, who believes an ethics revolution is “desperately needed.”

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.
