    Hello, yes I've listened Kerrie Roberts' new cd from Spotify. If there is some area/country where can only listen it, not sure about that. Of course this cd is available on iTunes also.

    Hey, you're welcome for the encouraging words before--glad I could help out a little :) Well, I will pray that the right doors open for you at the right time, with regard to getting into music. It surely sounds like something God has put in you, to blossom and use for His glory. ...So, if I may ask, what have you tried, that you say has been a waste of time, effort, etc.? I've got regrets like that as well. I find myself thinking, more often than I should, that if I could turn back my clock 5 years, even 10 years or more, I'd do this and that differently, and then maybe I'd be in a different place in life today. But of course, that's impossible...I have to believe things happen the way they do, for a reason... sure, my life is going far more slowly than I would like, but I tend to be fairly patient most of the time, so I guess that works. I guess once I do finally find a sense of fulfillment in my life, I'll know how to appreciate it, because my life to that point would have taught me.

    So, my advice to you, Clarissa, is if you feel God calling you to music, then go for it. Maybe pick it up as a hobby, put some stuff on YouTube, etc...just do something, ha. I guess that should be in some spare time first, while you pursue something else that will pay the bills (until you can afford to do music full-time, if that's what you want.) If God draws you toward something, He will make it possible for you. I'd say following after God is much more important than chasing money. And definitely, don't settle for any well-paying job if it's something you hate doing...that would just make you miserable, I'm sure. Things will work out for you eventually, I'm sure :)

    Money is not the most important thing in life. If it were, life would be much less meaningful... I'd say, try not to let others dissuade you from pursuing something, just because it may not bring in a lot of money. Let me tell a little story: do you happen to recognize the girl in my profile pic? She is Lindsey Stirling, a huge YouTube star. She had dreams of making it big in music (as a "hip hop violinist"), but was told early on, over and over, that her stuff is unmarketable and she would never go far with it, if anywhere. Still, she persevered (and made a living with other work for the time being)...frustrated by the music industry at large, and dealt a crushing blow by judges when she appeared on America's Got Talent, she eventually found an audience for her music on YouTube, and has been growing in popularity since. She's Christian, an awesome role model, and an example of how anyone can accomplish what he/she sets out to do, even when others say it won't work. [To be continued]

    Hey, it doesn't look like you replied to my second message from earlier? Just wondering if you forgot, or somehow didn't see it. Anyway... thanks for the station link! I'll have to give WFIX a listen sometime (perhaps at a time when I'm bored with my own music library, ha). I like stations like those...which reminds me, (especially since you also mentioned being in TN), have you ever listened to WAY-FM? They're another listener-supported station, that broadened my exposure to CCM when I first discovered it on a TN trip years ago. They're a CHR / Hot AC station, with a mix of rock-oriented / pop songs and softer AC/worship (but definitely more of the rockish type.)

    I'm sorry you're running around in circles...I can kind of relate. I graduated from college about two years ago now, and haven't really been able to do much with my life since. I've been kinda stuck too. So, what are you up to these days, since getting back into that college is not working out right now? Looking for work? Something else? ...I'm looking for work myself. Even have a job opportunity lined up right now, but my family is completely against me taking it, because of the initial low pay. They say I'd be throwing away my education, and blah blah blah, whereas I don't agree at all. Money is not everything to me, whereas it sure seems like it to them. Ugh... just a tense situation that's building this month. If you can pray for me about this, I'd appreciate it :) And if there's anything I can pray about for you too, just let me know!

    I can't say I've heard Bryan Duncan's latest on the radio, or even any of his older stuff anymore. It seems like radio (at least where I am) drops most songs and artists after 5 years (well, unless the artist is consistent in putting out new material). That's why I almost exclusively listen to music from my digital library, ha--I have Christian music dating as far back as the 60s/70s, and I have a daily segment in my playlist where I play some of it. Music is timeless, and I wish radio at large would treat it as such. But of course, radio is business, blah blah blah :P That all said, your station sounds cool...may you tell me what it is? I personally like WJTL 90.3 from Pennsylvania (I listen online from way out-of-state)...they're a rare one I know of that has a deep playlist, and periodic specials covering old CCM. [More to come in another shout soon :) ]

    Hello there! One of Bryan's older songs came up on my playlist earlier today, and I played a handful of others this past weekend during my "90s Flashback", haha. So, I guess your comment wasn't completely random! I'm familiar with his new one, "I See You"--I have the album (Conversations)! Good stuff :) So...how are you doing? I really don't remember the last time we talked...had to have been at least a year, huh? Well, I hope you're doing well! Thanks for the shoutout, and have a great evening!

Descrizione

Okay, for starters, don't ask me why I chose that username "CCMMusicGirl". It was just some silliness that popped into my head for some odd reason; I don't know how I came up with it. I think it's a bit lame now; wish I could change it sometimes...but I really am no good at picking usernames and passwords. I guess I can stick with it...there could be worse ones out there. lol

Since this is a music site: music I like to listen to: contemporary Christian music; not specifically one genre, although I do tend to listen to a lot of "girl pop" within CCM. It isn't one style by itself; there's something for everybody. I've been trying to open myself up to more of the different types lately; Last.fm is the place!

My musical bio: I mentioned that I listen to a lot of the "girl pop" side of CCM. Maybe that's because I have grown/am growing up/don't think I ever really grew up at all...whatever...lloving that kind of music. ...I haven't always listened to Christian music. Yes, I have sort of a "past"...no, not what you're thinking. I'm still a youngster (ha ha) But I came out of listening to a lot of the mainstream/secular/whatever they're calling that stuff now...popular music. I think the first artist to really become my favorite was none other than Celine Dion, which is probably why I have such affection for those big, explosive ballads where singers "show off" what their voices can do. It started around the time the "Titanic" movie was first getting popular; and there was a radio station that played Celine's famous song from the movie, "My Heart Will Go On"...well, they played it...on and on...and so I fell in love with it. I got one of her CD's, one of the first CD's I ever owned, and that was that. And all this when I was just...a really, really, really little kid!! And so I wanted to be one of those blow-you-away, hold-the-long-high-notes, belting pop singers...needless to say...it ain't gonna work at that age. lol Thus began my life-long desire to "be a singer," or so I think it probably started there. I sang in a county-wide talent contest four years; of course, the first two years I did Celine Dion songs...and of course, I didn't win anything. The final year of the contest was around the time I was starting to take interest in Christian music, and so it was the first Christian song I ever sang on stage...and I got a ribbon I wasn't expecting to get!! God is amazing!! After that, I mostly sang at different churches for the next few years. After hearing an ad on the radio about a music school, I started taking piano and voice lessons there. I even got a "real" microphone, complete with stand and amplifier, for Christmas one year! And after all that, where do I do my singing? In my bedroom!!! Wow, how exciting. At any rate, we all have those fantastic, unrealistic, out-of-reach dreams that we just keep holding on to, because we can't bare the thought of "not gonna happen," even though we know better. And that's mine. I'll never have a record deal and I have to make myself realize that, now that I'm a little older and subsequently, I hope, more mature. But I must admit: taking music lessons for almost two years in my teens...well, that was a lot of fun. And btw, no, I DO NOT sing in the shower.

After my fad of Celine fandom, I just listened to the same "poppy" stuff as my school friends. I won't mention any names here, I'll just say it was the late '90's/early 2000's...very, very early 2000's. Does that give you a clue? And it wasn't long after that when I discovered Christian music on a little show called "20: The Count-down Magazine". How cool is this...music that sounds just as good as anything I'd ordinarily listen to, singers that have totally amazing voices and can belt it out with the best of 'em e.g. Natalie Grant, Rachael Lampa, Joy Williams, Nicole C. Mullen...and they're singing about Jesus!! But then I was charmed by a group of singers who just captured my attention with one song. For several years I was totally absorbed in the music of the once-hugely-popular CCM group Avalon. Those days are over. I still like Avalon, but I DO NOT want anything like that to ever happen again!! And you shouldn't either, no matter who your favorite artist is!! Don't go extreme; stay healthy with variety. It's just what the doctor ordered! lol

my favorite artists right now:

#1] Natalie Grant: Why? Powerhouse! Voice! Great! Writer! Worldchanger! Passionate singer/speaker...and just a sweetheart! Well okay, so I've never met her, but she seems like a sweet gal. Over the past few years I've become more of a Natalie fan. I first heard Natalie Grant back in the "Stronger" days, on her duet with Plus One, "Whenever You Need Somebody". I always liked her music, and I knew she had a fantastic voice, but ironically since I never liked aggressive music, and btw Natalie didn't always record that kind of music either, but it was the song "I Will Not Be Moved" that made me really sit up and take more notice. I got hooked...said: "I have to buy this CD!!!" And I did. I bought the Relentless album, loved how eclectic it was, and well...the rest is history. Now I have all her CD's, even the really early ones from prior to the explosion of "Held"; and I'm not looking back. Plus, she's just got such a beautiful heart. She's a passionate activist against human trafficking...no, I call it slavery; that's what it is!!! And God delivered her out of bulimia when she was younger, and since reading her story in an interview, I have been inspired to let all gals know that real beauty is on the inside, especially since I have a lot of young girls in my family. Girls everywhere: concentrate on the inside. Spend as much time working on your heart as you do on your hair. Even complete strangers notice things like kindness a lot more than your thinness!!! I'm also passionate about this because of personal experience: I have dealt with my own food issues, and I would NOT wish this on anyone!!!

#2] Britt Nicole: Why? Her music is so darn much fun to listen to!!! It's almost too fun!! lol The girl can sing, too, even without all the poppy music stuff backing her up. She's a really great singer with just an acoustic set, but her regular stuff is really danceable and will put a smile on your face!! :) Just! Like! That! ha ha I suppose I'm a lot of a Britt Nicole fan too. I saw her in concert for the first time ever in 2012, just after my birthday. If I ever get the chance to see her again, I'm taking it! :)

Other artists I like a lot, in no particular order: 1 Girl Nation, ZOEGirl, Francesca Battistelli, Kerrie Roberts, Mandisa and Meredith Andrews. Check these gals out; they're all fantastic! :) I have to say: one of the things I love so much about listening to Mandisa's music is that she has so many songs about being free in Christ, and not just her Freedom CD.

Other music stuff: I also like some of the older CCM, like Twila Paris, Wain Watson, Susan Ashton and, of course, the late, great, Rich Mullins. If you're new to CCM, you MUST NOT stay uneducated in your history lessons!!! Rich Mullins and his music had such a huge impact, and the music still lives on. If you know "Awesome God," you really should go beyond just that. Use this website!

I also like a lot of the "praise and worship" music these days. Now I'm talking about artists like all the different Hillsong variations...how many are there? I personally think Chris Tomlin is overrated, but there is some of this stuff that's just really powerful, and you find yourself not being able to call it overrated. More recently, I've been getting into the deeper intimate music that's called "prophetic worship." I was turned on to this by my local radio station's special time (between 4 and 6 A.M.) called "In His Presence," where some of this music was played. Well, since that got started, I've loved it. The beauty, the intimacy, the atmosphere, the power, the quietness, the presence of God that is felt while you listen, it's all just too beautiful! I mean, there's nothing wrong with the pop style of CCM; I still listen to that...a lot. But there's just something about this...and hey, it gives a little more variety to my musical tastes. Now I'm not too familiar with a lot of the artists in this area, but music like that of Misty Edwards, Jason Upton and Corey Russell is...like nothing you've ever heard before if you listen to a lot of popular CCM. I also found the music of Grace Williams right on this site, just another example of how neat Last.fm is!

Some other non-music stuff about me, since there's more to life than music:

I'm totally blind but I push for independence, I'm the world's worst perfectionist, I'm the boniest kid you'll ever meet, I'm a terrible procrastinator, but I really want to let the grace of God fill those gaps. I have weaknesses and imperfections, but who doesn't...except Jesus? Now I'm not trying to mask any of that stuff, and it's not to say I just forget about it that easily. I'm not going to lie; I don't brag about my thinness, because I honestly don't see it that way. If anybody was to say, "I wish I had a figure like yours," I think...you don't know what you're saying. I have times when I honestly hate it; and that's only been in the past couple years that I've started having these issues. And I'm not going into any details here because...because this is a public page.

Things I like: music, sweets ~ especially chocolate ~ especially Hershey bars and Hershey kisses, chips, hot dogs, ice cream...okay, let's get away from food. And did I mention I still play with Legos and a bouncy ball? Man, I need to grow up!!! lol

My hobbies: I like to sing, a lot...already wrote about that; these days I sing a lot of Natalie Grant's stuff...bet you weren't surprised at that, right? I like to make silly "pop" and "squeak" noises...don't ask why on that last part. lol Okay, so I like to be silly. ha ha

Oh, and of course I like to use the computer too!!! :) I've been dabbling in writing basic, very basic, website code in the last few years i.e. HTML. Now don't you dare ask me to write you a whole new program for your PC; those are in two different worlds!

What I dislike or hate: DRAMA DRAMA DRAMA!!! I hate it!!! It destroys people, it destroys friendships...I like it when it's a class in school, not unfolding in real life! Gossip is the same way: it destroys relationships and brings people down. Every Christian should hate these evil things that Satan uses to destroy people's lives!!! Plus, things just work out better without the drama...or gossip!! Keep away from that garbage as best you can!!! Don't let it destroy you! God wants you to live, and how are you going to do that if you've been destroyed? Oh, and I can't stand arguments...finding myself somehow involved or having to listen to others "duke it out"...bring me my headphones!!!

Quotes

"...There's no need to mask my frailty, 'cause you see the real me..." - Natalie Grant ~ The Real Me | song

"There's no such thing as perfect people..." ~ Natalie Grant - Perfect People | song

"God did not remove the chains of sin just so He could put on the chains of religion." ~ Natalie Grant | spoken

"There could never be a more beautiful you..." ~ Jonny Diaz - More Beautiful You | song

Favorites

My favorite Bible passage: Psalm 121. Read it!

My favorite season of the year: probably spring/summer

Favorite song: Well...don't ask me that...there are too many! Okay, according to my page, the song I've played the most has been Natalie Grant's "I Will Not Be Moved". I guess you can call that my "favorite song" since it's got the highest number of plays in my library. But honestly, I just think music is beautiful. I have a lot of favorite songs.

Favorite color: Hey...you're talking to a blind girl!!! Don't you know I can't see color? ha ha

Favorite fruit: I love my peaches! Apples are great too, and grapes. Never cared much for cantilope though.

Randomness

Most embarrassing moment: getting sick in class...high school!! First and only time it ever happened, thankfully.

Favorite artist you've met: Jody McBrayer, formerly of Avalon fame; such a nice, sweet, and just cool guy!

Artist you'd love to meet but haven't yet: Natalie Grant: just seems like such a sweetheart! Or Britt Nicole: seems like the kind of gal who likes to "just hang out and have fun"; that really comes through in a lot of her music.

Who do you sing like? I'm not really sure about that one. In my days of Celine Dion fandom, I think I purposely tried to sing like her...don't ask. As I became more entrenched in Avalon World, I started to develop Melissa Greene tendencies, though not intentional this time; she was one of my favorite Avalon alumni. And these days, as you might have already guessed, I have begun to develop Natalie Grant tendencies with the singing...the little runs and stuff. I guess I sing most like whatever artist I happen to be listening to most often at the time. I've tried to "find my own voice" buried under all that other, which is rather difficult.

I might add some more stuff later, if I think of it.
