Featured Fan - Jacob Betts


Jacob Betts with Bellarive

Favorite Band/Artist:  Bellarive
Featured Fan: Jacob Betts
Location: Houghton Lake, Michigan
When/Where Was The Above Photo Taken:  Camp Electric 2013 Nashville
What About This Artist's Music Speaks To You: Bellarive's music to me is like taking a breath of fresh air. Today's modern worship scene is sometimes lacking in deep and meaningful lyrics. The beauty of these songs, both lyrical and musical, is truly an act of worship. Whether it's hearing the message of hope for eternity (Taste of Eternity) or striving to draw closer to God (Heartbeat & Tendons), Bellarive challenges you to step outside of your comfort zone and push yourself to become closer and closer to the Lord. I first saw them a week after my father died. The song "Taste Of Eternity" had more meaning than ever, reassuring me that our meeting again in paradise will be an everlasting reunion.
Favorite Album by This Artist:  The Heartbeat

Featured Fan - Egypt Ali


Egypt with Skillet

Favorite Band/Artist:  Skillet
Featured Fan: Egypt Ali
Location: Euclid, Ohio
When/Where Was The Above Photo Taken:  ALIVE Festival 2013
What About This Artist's Music Speaks To You: Skillet was my first band, ever. I was 12 and wanted so badly to find music that I liked and that my mother approved of. I was very lonely and started to Google "Christian Rock bands" thinking that there couldn't be anything bad in a Christian Rock song. Skillet was the first result. I listened to "Whispers in the Dark" for the first time at about 1 in the morning after a really bad day. I can honestly say that in that moment that song seemed to be meant for me. I love how every single one of their songs has a mission and a statement to make. A lot of bands can get out there and make noise but it takes true anointment to make a sound. They do it every time. Skillet always teaches you something every time you hear them. They make you think and they make you act. I heard one song and after that have been a solid Panhead ever since. Although, I did have fun explaining to my mother that my favorite band was named after a frying pan. :)  
Favorite Album by This Artist:  Collide
Favorite Song by This Artist: 
"Alien Youth"
Favorite Live Show Experience:
ALIVE Festival 2013
Number of Times Seen This Artist Live: 
12 times live. 3 times online.
Favorite Piece Of Merch/Item You Own From This Artist: 
I have a signed drum stick from Jen Ledger that I caught at my first concert, but I'd have to say that my favorite item is the Rise CD. At Alive they were having a pre-sale and because I was the first to buy it, I was the owner of the first ever Rise CD in existence, which is how I got to meet them.

Featured Fan - Drew North


Drew and his friend Justin with Switchfoot

Favorite Band/Artist:  Switchfoot
Featured Fan: Drew North
Location: St. Louis, MO
When/Where Was The Above Photo Taken:  9/20/13: First night of the Fading West tour at Missouri Baptist!
What About This Artist's Music Speaks To You: Switchfoot go against the grain as far as spiritual music is concerned. While they do get typecast as a Christian band, I love the quote Jon said about who the band really is: "For us, it's a faith, not a genre. We've always been very open and honest about where the songs are coming from. For us, these songs are for everyone. Calling us `Christian rock' tends to be a box that closes some people out and excludes them. And that's not what we're trying to do. Music has always opened my mind -- and that's what we want." Every single album they have changed it up and gotten more progressive in terms of music and lyrics. Jon and Tim Foreman have some incredible ways to get points out that no one has even dreamed of doing before. From the Legend of Chin up to Fading West coming out in January, this band is one of my all time favorites and still continue to overwhelm and inspire me and after seeing Fading West the movie, I have found a new love and respect for the guys (especially after meeting them). They truly are the real deal.
Favorite Album by This Artist:  I do like all of them, but all time i'd either go with The Beautiful Letdown or Vice Verses (so far)
Favorite Song by This Artist: 
"Where I Belong"
Favorite Live Show Experience:
First night of the Fading West tour, we were the first crowd of people to see the documentary and witness how the band was going to approach the tour in terms of it being something new for them which turned out to be a neat and unforgettable experience.

Featured Fan - Daniel Chang

Daniel Chang with Matt McDonald of The Classic Crime

Favorite Band/Artist: The Classic Crime
Featured Fan: Daniel Chang
Location:  Maryland
When/Where Was The Above Photo Taken:  November 2012, The Fillmore at Silver Spring, MD
What About This Artist's Music Speaks To You:  The Classic Crime captures just about every emotion in their music! They have plenty of happy, feel-good songs that make you want to dance, and then they have some slower, more reflective songs as well. Their lyrics often address really deep issues about ourselves, and how God is the only answer. For example, "Beautiful Darkside" has the lines "I need to find some meaning, Something true to believe in, 'cause left to my own devices, the beautiful darkside wins" Great music, great lyrics, great guys, what more can you ask for? Last, one fun thing about this band if you don't know them: They have a lot of "Whoa" songs (songs with "whoas"), and you'd think that would be annoying, but they do them EXTREMELY well!
Favorite Album by This Artist: Phoenix with The Silver Cord at a very close second!
Favorite Song by This Artist: "Abracadavers," "The Beginning (A Simple Seed)," "The Precipice," "Glass Houses"
Favorite Live Show Experience: This one!
Number of Times Seen This Artist Live:  1

Their music has helped me through some of the most difficult times in my life when I was wrestling with God, and also through the times of triumph and celebration! Their songs reminds me that I'm not alone, and inspire me to go beyond what others think is possible.
