Our Featured Artist of the week, Charlotte Ritchie, has been a familiar face and voice to Southern Gospel music lovers for many years. She sang with the Nelons 1991-1992 and again 1994-1996. She later sang with Jeff & Sheri Easter. In recent years, she's been best known as part of the Gaither Homecoming concert family. She's recorded several solo CDs over the years, the latest of which is her brand new one called "Praises From A Grateful Heart." As you heard, Charlotte pulled together some of her all-time favorite songs for this one, including her "favoritest" song of all, "Because He Lives." As you heard her tell the story on the air, her dad sang that song in church with Charlotte in his arms just a week after she was born. You can find out more about Charlotte on her website.
This past year has been a "breakout" year for our Artist Spotlight guest, soloist Jason Davidson. He's made quite a few major concert appearances, has been nominated for a Diamond Award as "Sunrise Artist," and had his first Singing News Top 40 song, "He Came Searching For Me." That's the title of his current CD, from which you heard three songs on this segment. Jason's been on staff at a hometown church, but when he recorded his CD he immediately began hearing from people who were touched by his songs. So he knew God was expanding his ministry. Of course, I especially liked to hear that when he was just three years old, his mother would stand him on a "little brick hearth" in their home, give him a microphone, and he would sing along with the songs he heard on The Gospel Greats program playing on the radio. You can find out much more about Jason on his website.
