Yancy “Little Praise Party” Blog Tour {& Giveaway}

May 2, 2012 | 34 comments

**The giveaway is now closed. The winner…Nicole has been notified by email. TY to all who participated! Hope you still purchase her CD!**

Music feeds my soul. From 11 years of piano lessons, performing in musicals, attending live music events…when I need to come out of a funk or remember who God created me to be, I listen to music.

My boys, by genetics or environmental influence, are also big fans. Turning on a favorite CD or Pandora is the one GUARANTEED way to “kick the crankiness” out of our house. Spirits are lifted. Bodies are moving. Voices are singing. God is glorified. Good stuff (particularly around 5 pm…you know what I mean).

A few weeks ago,  when I saw our church was hosting a family concert AND it was Yancy coming. We cleared the schedule and showed up ready to praise!

How cute is he? super-duper excited!

We have been Yancy fans since I received her CD free at the Relevant Conference (now Allume) last October. My son came home one Sunday so excited because in Kindergarten praise & worship they sang “Love God, Hate Sin” (from Yancy’s album “Stars, Guitars, & Megaphone Dreams”).

At Yancy’s concert I was most impressed by how she integrated the whole family into the praise & worship experience. She sang upbeat songs to get everyone excited. She highlight the truth of God’s love in her lyrics. She even acknowledged the parents at one point giving them encouragement in whatever trial they may be facing.

Unfortunately I wasn’t able to tell Yancy face-to-face how much we love her upbeat, truthful, God-centered music (had a newborn I needed to get home). BUT the great news is that I got an email from my awesome friend Amanda asking me to join the Yancy blog tour…highlighting the new CD called: “Little Praise Party: Happy Day Everyday”

“Yancy and friends have created a new collection of songs  (16 songs included) that are sure to warm the hearts of preschool kids and their parents too. You’ll find lots of sing-a-long fun including songs to celebrate some of the most special days of the year including Valentine’s, Easter, Thanksgiving, Christmas and Birthdays. Plus, a song about missions to encourage us to “Go into all the world”.

Also available for purchase is a DVD including animated music videos for 11 songs…which my boys LOVE.

As part of the tour, Yancy is singing a specially recorded song for each blog. So, if you are curious if her music is a match for your family you can tour the blogs, hear 14 different songs before you buy. How perfect is that? Here is the song she sang for GodCenteredMom…it’s called: “1,2,3, Jesus is Alive”. She explains the meaning perfectly, so here’s YANCY:
