DEPARTURES has arrived!



Here's a sample from my hubby's brand new album, DEPARTURES. This album is the result of something God put on my husband's heart about three years ago. The journey to get to the final product has been bumpy, but the end result is more incredible than we even imagined! What a joy to work with such gifted musicians and artists and watch as God created this beautiful tapestry.

To launch this new album, we also created a new website. Stop by for a visit at:
http://www.andrewmartinmusic.com/. Listen to clips from the rest of the album by clicking on "In-flight Entertainment". It will be available to order from our online store or from iTunes by the end of the month.

Last September God placed the desire in Andrew's heart to write a song about reaching out to those around us. Andrew worked on that song for two days straight and couldn't come up with something. The kids were busy with fashion shows all weekend and had no idea he was trying to write a song. Early Monday morning when I woke up, MacKenzie (then 13) was already awake. When I asked her why she simply answered, "God woke me up with a song, so I got up and wrote it down." She had written two verses, a chorus and even a bridge. The lyrics were exactly what Andrew had been trying to create all weekend!! Here's a sample of the final cut ...



The journey has been long, like we've been in a holding pattern. DEPARTURES is such a fitting name because it does feel like we're about to take off!

I believe I just overheard God telling His angels "That's my child,isn't he awsome!"
The firecrackers have ignited and the fireworks are but a moment away.
Congratulations to all of you.
Relax and enjoy the fruit of your labour,we are.

Vicki, thanks for contacting me with the message regarding Miley Cyrus. I do have compassion for the family, especially Miley herself. I hope I never came across as blaming her. I'm glad her parents want to protect her so much. And here's another thought-I'm a parent who has made mistakes, too. Only my mistakes aren't plastered across media for the world to see.
