We listen to music almost constantly in our house. Yes, we have our favorites and our stand-bys but we love to get new music to add to the mix. It's exciting to be able to get new music that is enjoyable and uplifting.
I was recently given the opportunity to review an upcoming CD release of a brand new artist that is worth a listen to. His name is Robert Pierre and he is an 18 year old that has a great voice.
Here is his mini-bio:
“Robert Pierre is an 18-year-old with a big voice and an even bigger heart; a talented
musician and a singer-songwriter who has managed to juggle a music career with his
high school honors course work. Robert grew up in a Christian home and knew about
Christ all his life, but it wasn't until he was confronted by a teacher in seventh grade
that he gave his life to Christ. "He looked at me and asked me one simple question,"
Robert explained, "He asked,''If you were to die right now, and were standing at the
gates of heaven, and God asked you why He should let you in... what would you say?'
And all I could think to answer honestly was that He shouldn't..." The Spirit used that
moment to bring Robert to a point of repentance and salvation that changed his life forever.
It was at that time that Robert committed his talents to the glory of God alone. Soon,
the Lord began to open doors of opportunity for Robert to minister to people through music.
Robert has already released two nationally distributed records, with three singles hitting
the Billboard Christian AC Top 50 hit list. In addition to performing at summer festivals,
Christian fund raisers, teen camps, youth groups and schools, Robert has toured nationally
with the junior high "Believe" Tour, the inaugural "iShine" Tour and the nation’s largest
Christian tour "Winter Jam 2010." This last year, he has spent his time writing and recording
his third record, titled “I’m All In,” which is representative of Robert’s passion for not only
talking about his Christian faith, but living sold out for Christ. The project has been co-written
and produced by award winning songwriters and producers Matt Bronleewe and Jason Ingram.
Robert not only sings on this aIbum, but wrote on 10 out of 11 songs, played guitar for the
recording, and sang back up vocals.
