What’s new with Jaci Velasquez?
Not only is she a wife, mother and co-host of a morning radio in Nashville, Jaci also has a new album out. Diamond’s release through retail garnered Jaci’s highest chart position (#11) in more than a decade. Her lead single “Give Them Jesus” achieved Top 20 status and showed her pres-ence is valued again within our community.
Look who’s having a baby!!
After attending the Grammy Awards last month as a nominee, Laura Story and her husband, Martin, announced that they are expecting their first child, due this fall. “What an amazing season this has been!” says Story. “Martin and I have been so thankful to find out that we are expecting, and then this Grammy surprise was the cherry on top! Thanks to all who are cel-ebrating with us.”
What’s coming to your radio?
David Crowder Band with “After All (Holy)” is the latest single from their final project, Give Us Rest or (a requiem mass in c [the happiest of all keys]). If nothing else, David Crowder is a rather unique individual but we will be singing his songs for years to come.
British worship leader Matt Redman released a new CD last year to rave reviews. If you’re a fan of the Passion projects or just like great worship music, 10,000 Reasons deserves consideration. The title track from 10,000 Reasons, should be playing on a radio near you very soon!
