Music CD Review and Giveaway!

What happens when a group of 20+ musicians and 10+ songwriters steeped deep in their own musical traditions of Black Gospel, Latin, Caribbean, and Anglo come together to create a new tradition and sound? What happens when the fusion of Black, Anglo, Latino, Caribbean, and Cuban voices unite together to worship in one voice? Among the 2000 people that attend the Miami Vineyard Community Church, there are over a hundred singers, instrumentalists and songwriters that make up its eclectic worship ministry. For one night, these musicians joined together in worship and invited the church to document the sound that is uniquely MIAMI VINEYARD LIVE.
This distinctive bi-lingual liturgy is filled with many flavors, from Latino claves to gospel two-step to funk and soul to delay-laden rock guitars of modern worship, yet they all work together seamlessly to create a new sound and voice that is authentic and refreshing. From anthems of praise and proclamation to songs of intimacy and adoration, there is a common thread running deep throughout this recording and that is true worship of the Living God as an expression of His Kingdom breaking in on the streets and beaches of Miami, FL.

I was blessed with the opportunity to review Miami Vineyard LIVE this past week, and I have been loving it! It's so upbeat and fun to listen to. I play it while cleaning and even working out. Even the slower songs are surprisingly upbeat. The girls and I have been having a blast dancing around the kitchen while I cook supper. This is a fun worship CD that the whole family enjoys!

While most of this CD is in English, a lot of the songs have some Spanish mixed in. This would be great for someone who is bi-lingual or interested in learning a second language. I have been wanting to learn Spanish for a while, so I am enjoying it emensley. But even if you are just looking for a fun, upbeat worship CD, I highly recommend it! - And the best part is, I have a copy to give away!
