I was getting ready to release “The Star Still Shines” yesterday – more than two weeks later than I had planned – and the coverage of the shooting in California came on the TV. I paused. Maybe this wasn’t a good time. Maybe I should wait.
It didn’t feel like a Christmasy day at all.
All I can say is I'm still trying. After a freak accident, a sick singer, 2 failed recording attempts, and several sleepless nights, I'm still working to get "The Star Still Shines" out there. I'm not a person who thinks everything happens for a reason, or that all opposition comes from the devil. But I'm beginning to wonder what's going on.
I’m super excited to announce (finally!) that my new Christmas songs will be available here on SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 29th.
THE STAR STILL SHINES and I’D SING YOU A SONG have been a long time coming, but they’re getting close! I originally planned to get them out by the first of November, but alas
I’ve been watching my YouTube channel lately because I’ve been getting awfully close to 1,000,000 total views. I thought it would happen some time in November or December, and I was planning a blog post to offer free downloads on the day I actually reached a million. But last week (October 19th), I checked to see the progress, and WHOOPS!
I'm excited to announce 2 new Christmas songs!...and some other really great news. If you'd like to be notified when the songs are out, leave a comment at the end of this post, and I'll email you when they're available. Also, check out our other upcoming projects...
Okay. I admit it. I'm a terrible blogger. The last time I wrote was Thanksgiving 2014. And yet yesterday, 389 people visited my site. It's obvious they didn't come to read my blog. They came for "The Miracle." And that song says more than I could say in a thousand blog posts...
A few years ago, when I was directing the music in Primary, the theme of the month was “Jesus is a God of miracles.” I wanted a song to go with it. I scoured all the typical sources to find that song, but no luck. So I wrote one. It didn't occur to me that anyone else would ever hear it
I wrote Do You Have Room? as a Christmas gift for my family. I sang it to THEM on Christmas Eve, then filed it away in my music drawer and forgot about it. It might still be there, if it weren’t for my Dad, who regularly asked me, “Have you done anything with that song?”...
