Ginny Owens "Get in I'm Driving" - A Review and Giveaway - @GinnyOwens - (9/25)

Ginny Owens "Get in I'm Driving"

This week I had the chance to preview the new CD release by Christian Artist Ginny Owens. The collection is titled Get in I'm Driving and it's due to be released on September 13th.

I have been loving this CD. It's a perfect choice for relaxing and unwinding. She has a beautiful voice, and the sweet and soulful tunes are wrapped around her lyrical prayers.

The CD has 11 tracks, and each one is unique. It is a Christian praise CD with a soft rock, bluesy feel that will make it popular in the mainstream market, too. Some of the songs brought tears to my eyes, others made me smile. I enjoyed them all.

About Ginny: *** 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.

I really admire Ginny Owens as a person. She uses her talent to glorify God and her fame and fortune to make the world a better place. She faced her physical adversity and chose to thrive in spite of it. She is a very talented artist.
