Passionate about creating this worship record rooted in my love for the Lord and for people to experience his love for them.
WE DID IT! GOAL MET and with 5 days left too! I'm just soo blessed to have you all along side of me through this journey. Praise God for his incredible provision in this project and process! I just want to give him all the glory!
THANK YOU ALL!!!! You all have just gone above and beyond to make this dream of mine a reality!
With 5 days left! Let's really bring it home!
My heart is to get this record into as many hands as possible, so these songs with the message of Jesus's love can be widely shared. So please continue to pass this along to anyone who may be interested in joining the journey, and anyone who may want to pre-order this record.
thank you again, all of your love and support astounds me.
-Merriest Christmas to you and your family!
In the spirit of the holiday season, i just wanted to give a little something back to you! Here's an update to fill you all in on the process so far. As well as find a reason to capitalize on my italian heritage and talk with my hands way to much! ha ... PLUS! my gift to you, a live version of O Come, O Come, Emmanuel for your listening pleasure :)
With only 12 days left in the campaign, it's getting down to the wire. We are so very close to the goal! How exciting! As i mentioned, $4,000 is the bare bones for this project, which unfortunately, still doesn't cover all recording costs pressing cd's, promo's, or any of the extra stuff. The harsh reality is everything combined is more in the $6-7,000 world. :/ So anything above and beyond truly is a huge blessing to help out.
Please know, I am sincerely grateful, for what you all have already accomplished. It's been an incredible journey so far... and i'm so excited to see what the Lord has in store.
If you are thinking of donating: even $10 would do so much, plus it would be wonderful to get the record out to as many people as possible!
If you know someone who may want to donate: please pass this along to them... spreading the seed has been a huge source of the funding thus far. It's wonderful to see how this common medium can bring together such a wide demographic of people!
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for everything. Your support and love has been completely overwhelming and so humbling to see.
you all are so incredible!!!
merry christmas and blessings to you and your family!
C.S. Lewis once said “It is in the process of being worshipped that God communicates His presence to men.”
It’s in that place that Lewis talks about, that truly embodies my passion for worship. The place of intimate connection between you and God where you experience love that is His presence. That, in and of itself is the beating heart behind this record.
I believe in life we are all ultimately looking for that moment where we can dive deep into the passion that we’ve kept under lock and key. Passion, that when allowed to breathe, uncovers the best version of ourselves. Throughout my walk I am learning that my passion is deeply rooted in my love for the Lord, and for people to experience His love for them in a tangible way. Worship to me, is about the surrender that takes place, in order for God to unlock the desires of our heart.
As personal as this record will be to me, ultimately, i aspire for this record to transcend my own capacity. My hope is that it will be a gateway to join the body together throughout each of our daily walks. Whether that entails your 20 minute drive to work where you talk with Him, worship around the campfire, or even sending a track to a friend in need of some encouragement. I’m genuinely just hoping to help provide an accessible and enjoyable way for you to experience Him, using what he's given to me to further His kingdom.
Kickstarter allows YOU to be a part of the making of this record in an profound way. If funded, your incredibly appreciated donations will be used to pay for musicians, a producer and mixing and mastering. I have 45 days to raise $4,000... but here’s the kicker... if the goal isnt met, sadly, this record may never take flight.
How can you help?
DONATE. While the Kickstarter goal is $4,000, the reality of the situation is that completing the record will cost much more. So if you feel led, going above and beyond would be a tremendous blessing. Each person who sends a donation will receive a personal gift from me as listed below.
SPREAD THE WORD. You can help me by passing this along to the eyes and ears of anyone and everyone you know with Facebook and Twitter, or if you’re really fired up, sharing it with them in person or even over email. I truthfully can’t do this without you.
Sincerely, I can’t thank you enough for all your love and support. I’m so very excited to take this journey with you.
