Hey Friends –
Welcome to another Friendship Friday Giveaway! Remember, each Friday I giveaway a fantastic resource written by a fabulous friend or favorite artist on my Facebook Ministry page. I’m glad you are here!
Today’s giveaway is an awesome new CD by Christian music artist Colton Dixon. He is my girls’ absolute favorite (well, really all of our favorites — not just the tween girls!)
Colton quickly became a household name in 2012 when he made it to the top seven on Season 11 of Fox’s hit show American Idol, and his career has been on the fast track ever since. We’ve had the chance to see Colton live in concert twice, and boy — does he know how to put on an amazing show!
Imagine my delight when I learned Colton has a brand new CD coming out, and his team wondered if I’d like to share his music with my blog readers.
Um, YES PLEASE!
Introducing Colton Dixon’s brand new CD —Anchor
Fans have been able to identify with the lyrics, which remind listeners that God is with them through all the ups and downs of life – even in moments that feel hopeless. Colton has championed the message of the single through a successful social media campaign, #ThroughAllOfIt, challenging fans to share a pivotal moment of joy or pain where they knew God was with them. In response, fans have boldly shared their personal accounts of God’s faithfulness.
Wow! Am I the only one who had to grab a tissue?! Powerful!
Here’s what Colton has to say about his new CD —
“I have a strong passion for my generation, to motivate them to the keep the torch lit,” Colton says. That passion plays a starring role on the new album. After the first record, he realized how easy it was to get distracted, to drift from where he needed to be. That’s where the title Anchor came from… Anchor is an edgy rock record with appeal that crosses generational lines to have mass appeal. Audiences that were granted an early preview of the new album have responded even more enthusiastically than Colton had hoped. But in the end, its not just about making music that is fun to listen to – the goal is to create songs that have the ability to inspire listeners.
Or as Colton explains it, “My hope is that at the end of it all, you feel closer to God than you did when you first pressed ‘play.’”
Now are you ready for an awesome Colton Dixon giveaway?! (drumroll please….)
