Holy Roar Album by Chris Tomlin {Review and Giveaway} #HolyRoar #FlyBy

“HOLY ROAR is the freedom, the experience, the wonder of worship. It is seeing the church come together, hands lifted to God, pouring out our praise with an eternal song in our hearts. It’s every voice together, changing the way we worship.” ~Chris Tomlin

The Holy Roar Album by Chris Tomlin just came out and one word “Wow”! This album is packed full of amazing worship music. These songs praise the Lord, challenge growth, and bring us back to our savior again and again. We have to die to ourselves daily with the freedom God gives us. I believe the songs on this album invoke true renewal in the truths and promises of God.

Matthew West’s new Album “All In” {Review and Giveaway}


I’m excited to be sharing about Matthew West’s new Album “All In! This album was written with the goal of encouraging himself and others to get up off the sidelines of their faith and really live it out – to go all in in your time with God, all in with your family, all in with your community, and all in battling your fears that may hold you back from becoming who God made you to be.

Along with that same theme of the album, Matthew will be launching a 6-week All in Challenge on his social media starting 9/18, and each week Matthew will be challenging his fans to go all in in a different part of their lives. What does it look like when a heart that knows Jesus takes a step and holds nothing back? How can we go All In in the places that mean the most?

12 Hole “Elf” Tenor Ocarina {Review}

 

Fans of J.R.R Tolkien’s works The Hobbit and Lord of The Rings are likely to be in awe of the themed Ocarinas offered at STLOcarina.com. These would make a wonderful gift to fans whether they already know how to play or are looking to learn. Each are quite unique, ever so attractive, and I believe very affordable. It’s certainly a delight to hear such beautiful music made from a seemingly simple wind instrument!

I’ve  been playing the 12-Hole Elf Tenor Ocarina and the sound is amazing. The quality is exceptional and appearance wise it’s even more beautiful in person than I imagined it would be! It’s easy to hold and play every sharp and flat note needed. It’s tuned in the key of C major. I can’t wait to be able to play better with more practice.

I like that with this particular Ocarina, a  Lord of the Rings songbook as well as on-line instructional booklet is included when purchased. There are 7 songs in the songbook which include: Concerning Hobbits, In Dreams, Evenstar, The King of Golden Hall, Eowyn’s Theme, The Steward of Gondor, and Into the West.

On, December 17th The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies releases into theaters. I can’t help but think how awesome it would be to surprise a friend or family member with one of the many LOTR /Hobbit themed Ocarinas perhaps after seeing the film together!

Ocarina prices range vastly from type and models. There are many to chose from including Super Hero, Zelda, Homeschool, Classic, Teacups, and many more! The above mentioned Ocarina is on sale right now for $69.99!

Peter Hollens Debut Album Review & Giveaway!

peterhollens

Peter Hollens is an musical artist I learned about after seeing him in a Lindsey Sterling video on Youtube a few months ago. When it was brought to my attention that he had an album coming out this month, I was pretty eager to get a hold of a copy!

Peter has some pretty amazing music videos which can be seen on his Youtube channel. He offers his voice up for renditions of a number of musical genres popular pieces. Whether you like folk, Broadway, pop, or music and game songs, I’m sure there’s something there to draw you in! He totally gets my vote for uniqueness as a one-man cappella vocalist in sharing his amazing voice and videos with the world!

There are thirteen songs on his album which make up a runtime of about an hour. The song variety are many. My favorites have to be Skyrim (Main Theme) which features Lindsey Stirling, Les Miserables Medley in which he is accompanied by his wife, Shenandoah, Ashland’s Song (a touching original), I see Fire, & Misty Mountains. Not that the other songs are any less enjoyable! Other artist that make an appearance on this album are Brian Wilson of the Beach Boy, Jackie Evancho, Avi Kaplan, and mentioned before Lindsey Stirling.

1. I See Fire
2. Skyrim (Main Theme) [feat. Lindsey Stirling]
3. I Won’t Give Up
4. Les Miserables Medley (feat. Evynne Hollens)
5. I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For (feat. Sabrina Carpenter)
6. Shenandoah
7. She Moved Through The Fair
8. Hallelujah (feat. Jackie Evancho)
9. Our Special Love (feat. Brian Wilson)
10. The Parting Glass
11. Black is the Color of My True Love’s Hair (feat. Avi Kaplan)
12. Ashland’s Song
13. Misty Mountains

I would highly recommend you checking out Peter Hollens Youtube channel to see his videos and hear some of the songs found on this album. My family is enjoying his album very much! I’m hoping to see perhaps a Holiday collection in the future. Until then, I’m keeping this one on repeat through my week.
