Adam Cappa Music

I used to hear these songs on Air1's New Music Channel. Now that channel is gone and I don't hear them on the radio anymore, so I listen on Youtube! Anyway, they are great songs and I thought I'd share them here, even though they aren't super new. I've decided by now that I don't have to just post new songs. After all, it is my blog, so I can do what I want :) Happy Listening!

Plans ~ Kyle Kupecky

Holt International is one of the sponsors/partners of Winter Jam and in one of the videos they showed, there was this really great song that I had never heard. So I quickly wrote down some of the lyrics to look up when I got home. The artist is Kyle Kupecky, former singer in Anthem Lights! What fun! This is such a wonderful song that reminds me of the verse Jeremiah 29:11. And that's not a coincidence ;)

Happy Listening!

These guys are quickly becoming one of my favorite bands! // more from Anthem Lights

I am becoming a huge fan of Anthem Lights. They have songs that are just so funny (either lyrically or the video or both) and songs that have a great message. So here are a few more songs that are perfect examples of all of the above. Happy Listening!

"That's What I'm Looking For" is so encouraging to me personally. I have made the commitment to modesty and purity and, quite frankly, living differently from those around me is a struggle sometimes. This song - and others like it - tell me, "Yes, what you're doing is important." As a Christian, I try to live the way God wants me to because He wants me to, but at the same time, it is nice to know that it's acknowledged, you know? Not only does this song have a great message, but it's hilarious!

"I'm Not Going Anywhere" talks about unconditional love. It talks about opening up to each other as Christians and broken people and saying, "Yep, you messed up. But I'm going to stand with you, help you back up, and guide you back to God." We are not the judges of others; that's God's job. We are called to build one another up and continually point them to God and to His Word.  (As an added bonus, Manwell Reyes from Group 1 Crew is in it too!)

"Love You Like The Movies" cracks me up! It is a sweet love song but also really funny. These guys make songs that cheer me up when I'm having a down day. I just can't help but smile :)

The irony is not lost on me that I don't really like/listen to love songs and I just posted three (!), but what I like about these songs is that they are realistic love songs. Not just mushy, gushy or "how will I live without you?" songs (they do have some of those and I don't really like them). I guess the last one kind of is, but it's so funny, it gets an exception. I just really appreciate the message that the first two songs portray. 

So there's your dose of Anthem Lights. Hope you enjoyed the songs! (Perfect timing to post on Valentine's Day :)

All I Can Do (Thank You) ~ Mikeschair

I love this song! It is a song of worship acknowledging how we are so unworthy of God and what He has done. All we can do is tell Him thank you. 

Happy Listening!

Mark Schultz music

This first song is called "The Time That Is Left". It's pretty old, but I only recently discovered it and it has quickly become one of my favorites by Mark. This song fills me with peace. If I'm sad or angry, I feel calmed when I listen, and if I am happy, this song increases that happiness.
