Happy Thanksgiving!!

Happy Thanksgiving!!


It seems so hard to believe that another year has come and gone. SO many amazing things have happened this year that I can only give God all the credit for. And you know, in times when everything is going wrong, it's hard to find only a handful of things to give God thanks for. But when a day like today comes along, we realize just how much we can be thankful for! I'd like to reflect on a few things I'm very thankful for, but since this is a musik site, it will be a little different than a typical list.

For one, I am so incredibly grateful for the music and ministry of Aaron Shust. Not only has his music meant so much to me lately, God also blessed me the opportunity to meet the one and only! It was so much more than I could ever have asked for. The Called to Love Tour was simply amazing, and I even had the opportunity to interview all three artists there (Downhere, Aaron Shust, and Jason Gray). I honestly cannot put into words how much Aaron's music means to me, as at times I wonder if he wrote his songs five years ago for me today -- they are literally that close to an accurate reflection of me.

Guess who this is? ;)
Secondly, the ministry of Beckah Shae! You don't have to know me that well to know that I absolutely love Beckah Shae! Not only is her music FANTASTIC, but it's also mostly Scripture, which is so awesome. I love that I can put on her music and be building myself up, while listening to fun music. I hope to be able to meet Beckah Shae very soon! (And look for a review of her Christmas CD very soon!)

The City Harmonic! These guys were actually the second band I ever met. I had the chance to hang out with them a bit, which was a blast, and they came within an hour away! But in addition, their music is simply stunning... heavenly! There is not one single song that is not my favorite from these guys, and their new album I Have a Dream is fantastic!

There are a million more bands I could explain why their music inspires me, or is encouraging to me, but one of my favorite bands of all times is... *drumroll please* Sixteen Cities! Yeah, you knew that was coming if you've been a reader of my blog for a while now. I was an instant fan with the release of their Centricity Music debut, and I had the honor (thank God!) of meeting them not once, but twice this year! I even had the chance to interview them in person at their show in Glens Falls, NY. What an awesome group this is. I can't wait for the release of their new single after Christmas!

There are many more things I'm thankful for -- my concert buddies (AKA siblings ;)), all the companies that support this site, all the artists and bands that promote this site through sharing my links on Twitter and Facebook! Those of you who have given me wonderful feedback on my video interviews, my God for His provision and blessing, and YOU for reading this right now. Thanks, and have a wonderful Thanksgiving!!

  3. That's really neat about Aaron Shust's music. I have yet to hear his stuff, but I definitely will-- thanks to you! I also heard Bekah Shae for the first time and no wonder you rave about her stuff! Wow!

    Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours. :)
