Ginny Owens-“Get-in, I’m Driving”~CD Review

image

Jazzy, soulful and honest, those are the words I would use to describe the new CD by Ginny Owens. 

“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.”

What a blessing this singer is and if you’ve never had the opportunity to hear her music, you can hear a few samples here on iTunes.  Strawberry and I LOVE to sing along with Ginny, her voice is so easy to sing with and the words so passionate and appealing.  Also, I’m so happy to be able to give away one of her CD’s for your listening enjoyment. 

Take a moment to visit her website and decide if you would be blessed to receive this brand new, soon to be released, CD.  I'm pretty sure you will feel the same way we do!
