I love reviewing products for the blog- and I especially love when the product that I am reviewing is one that came into my life at the exact perfect moment. The debut CD from Jason Bare, called Beautiful Design, was one of those perfect-timing products.
Jason Bare is a pastor's kid (me too!) and former member of the Lee Singers, a famous group from Lee University. Now he also has 14 years of work as a worship leader under his belt, so it was about time for him to release a CD. In addition to performing the songs on this CD, he co-wrote all of them.
I really have been enjoying Beautiful Design. Jason has a fabulous voice that really brings the lyrics of these songs to life and the music is great. And the lyrics of the songs are such a wonderful combination of honesty, hope and a reminder that God is always faithful, even in the challenging times of life. I particularly enjoyed the Christmas song "For the First Time", which is gorgeous and will hopefully become a frequently played Christmas song in the years to come. I also loved the song "Walk Before Me", which is based on Jeremiah 29:11. I'm going to put that one on my iPod so that I can have it close at hand when I need it!
If you visit Jason Bare's website, you can hear some of the songs for this album, if you'd like a taste of what to expect! You can also purchase Beautiful Design there, and get more information about Jason Bare and upcoming tour dates.
