February: The Month of Love and CompassionArt

1 Feb

Back in January, this group of 12 songwriters united in Scotland to write songs and compose music that would benefit some of the poorest on our planet.

Pictured (l-r): Matt Redman, Paul Baloche, Tim Hughes, Graham Kendrick, Steven Curtis Chapman, Israel Houghton, Michael W. Smith, Darlene Zschech, Andy Park, Martin Smith and Stu Garrard (Delirious?) Chris Tomlin was unable to attend due to illness.

If you missed the debut of “So Great” at this year’s Dove Awards, watch it here.


“There is Always a Song” (Martin Smith, Steven Curtis Chapman, Watoto Children’s Choir)

Alyssa Bjornstad Alyssa’s greatest accomplishment to date was picking one major in graduate school. Her undergraduate career was filled with indecisiveness—namely, English, Communication, Journalism, and Psychology. When not reading textbooks, doing research, or writing papers, she can be found drinking coffee, painting, philosophizing, blogging, listening to music, drawing, or playing an immovable stringed instrument. After graduation, Alyssa hopes her dream of working for Passion Conferences comes true! Until then, she stays busy editing and contributing to the field of sanity. You can contact her by e-mail plansforhopeATgmailDOTcom.

    Celine,

    Thanks for your enthusiasm! We’re excited about CompassionArt month here at Backseat Writer.

    Yes, Darlene Zschech is the only female in the pic, and the only female songwriter who contributed to this amazing project.

    Stay tuned!
