Wednesdays are killer, right? Last weekend is a distant memory and this weekend seems like it will never arrive. And to make matters worse, we’re in the holiday season—shopping, decorating, baking, avoiding Salvation Army bell ringers. I love the Salvation Army and all they do, but I could do without the bell ringers. I wish you could give them $20 to stop ringing the bell for five minutes or at least until you make it to the car.
But this morning whilst performing my daily ritual of checking out what happened in the cyber world as I slumbered, I learned something VERY EXCITING from Jen Rose—Jason Gray’s single, “Remind Me Who I Am” is #1 on the Christian & Gospel charts on iTunes! Now “Remind Me Who I Am” will always be one of my favorite songs because of the impact it had (and continues to have) on my life, so I would love to see it get stay at #1. (Note: I like Casting Crowns’ “Courageous” and Laura Story’s “Blessings,” too. But neither song has hit me in the heart like “Remind Me Who I Am”).
Did you hear *that*, er, read *that?! I’ll type it in CAPS for emphasis:
JASON GRAY’S “REMIND ME WHO I AM” IS CURRENTLY #1!!!
Personally, I believe you should buy “Remind Me Who I Am” because it’s a great song AND it’s only 69 cents on iTunes, but to help you in your music buying decision, I’m gonna back up this song with a giveaway. If you purchase “Remind Me Who I Am” on iTunes, you will get a chance to win an autographed copy of Jason Gray’s latest album, A Way to See in the Dark (and, yes, this is the album “Remind Me Who I Am” is on!)
Maybe you already own the song or just can’t afford it right now, that’s OK. I would never exclude anyone from a giveaway. So everyone gets one entry, BUUUUUUT, if you buy the single on iTunes or gift the single to friends with an identity crisis, you get TWO extra entries for EACH purchase, and if you review the song on iTunes (I’m talking at least two sentence here, not “This song rocketh.” Put a little meat in that review), you get another TWO entries. That means, you get ONE entry just for being alive, and TWO entries if you buy the song for yourself and TWO more if you leave a review of “Remind Me Who I Am” on iTunes, which gives you SIX chances to win! (Or if you enter and buy the song for your Aunt Mabel, you have EIGHT your chance of winning A Way to See in the Dark!)
Just fill out THE FORM, tell me how many copies of “Remind Me Who I Am” you purchased on iTunes, write a smashing review, and [hopefully] win! Remember, you get an entry just for being alive, so everyone can enter, but only one can win. I mean, maybe I can get Jason Gray to send each one of you a hair follicle or something (by the way, JG did not ask me to run this contest, but I watched him personally autograph the CD, so he has foreknowledge that a giveaway would happen!)
Here are some links in REALLY BIG LETTERS to help you:
(Or don’t and enter anyway. But you get TWO extra entries for each copy of the song you purchase. (You’re on the honor system. I mean, I love this song, but if you tell me you purchased 109 copies, I’m going to need to see that iTunes receipt.)
(By the way, you can review the song without buying it on iTunes, so by being alive AND writing a review, you can get THREE entries.)
3. Then enter to win an authographed copy of the WHOLE album, A Way to See in the Dark by Jason Gray, right here! I’m instituing use of THE FORM!
The giveaway ends at 11:59 PM EST on December 7, so you have a whole week to snag this deal. The winner will be emailed and if he/she does not respond within 3 days, a new winner will be chosen. I am not responsible for prizes that are lost by the USPS, though it would be very sad and I would cry with you should that occur. Oh, and if you buy more copies of “Remind Me Who I Am” or decide to write a review AFTER you’ve already entered do come back and tell me so I can give you even more extra entries.
Even if you don’t win this amazing album, and I hope you do, you still win by getting a copy of “Remind Me Who I Am” by Jason Gray. And I do encourage you to purchase A Way to See in the Dark, for it is a phenomenal album…and it makes a great Christmas present! (I heard Aunt Mabel really wants a copy!)

Amy’s Random Aside: I believe in Jason Gray and his music so much that I changed my Twiticon and my Facebook profile pictures to “Remind Me Who I Am.” (I added “Beloved” to the Facebook pic because Amy means “beloved.”) If you just love Jason, his music, or what people to remind you who you are, email me and I’ll change your Twitter or Facebook book to look similar to mine. (Text may be different. We are all unique creatures.)

Tell me, once again, why you like this song, why you like this song? (Sing that to the chorus of “Remind Me Who I Am”) How have you deal with a spiritual identity crisis? Jason Gray has great hair, so why do you think he’s wearing that hat in the music video for “Remind Me Who I Am”? Do you recycle your cardboard boxes, make signs from them, or just throw them out in the regular trash?
