This week, I've been listening to the latest CD from contemporary Christian artist Ginny Owens, "Get In, I'm Driving!", and I have to say, it's good! A blend of funky, jazzy, and even a little moody at times, this CD just feels like Autumn. This is one of those albums that make me want to grab a hot cup of tea, a good book, and curl up in a comfy chair and unwind. And if the day is overcast, all the better! I love Before You Fly, and Better That Way. You have to check this one out!
And now, a few words from the publisher...
A three time Dove Award winner, including the Gospel Music Association's 2000 New Artist of the Year recipient, and multiple ASCAP Award winner, Ginny Owens has sold nearly one million albums. A top performer on the Christian radio charts with hits like "If You Want Me To", "Free", and "I Wanna Be Moved", among others, Owens' music has impacted mainstream audiences at Lilith Fair, the Sundance Film Festival, and the White House. Her music has received widespread film and television placement, including songs on the popular WB series "Roswell", and "Felicity". Owens was featured on national television, including NBC's "Today", and "CNN", for her contribution to help rebuild New Orleans following Hurricane Katrina.
Born and raised in Jackson, Miss., Owens was discovering melodies on the piano almost before she could complete a sentence. Songs began to emerge from her fingers as the vision began to leave her eyes, and by the age of three, a degenerative eye condition left Owens completely blind. Despite her physical challenge, Owens pursued a music career. Songs provide a window into a world Owens can't see, and an outlet for her to express her thoughts and dreams. Owens' unique musical style and inspirational lyrics continue to appeal to Christian and mainstream audiences alike.
In 2005, Owens launched The Fingerprint Initiative, a hands on, non-profit organization designed to "bring hope to the world, one project, and one touch, at a time." The organization has partnered with, and raised money for groups such as Compassion International, International Justice Mission, and Habitat for Humanity.
