Nashville, Tenn. Nov. 12, 2008… In its seventh week, 33,246 copies of Robert Pierre’s sophomore record Identity have been given away for the benefit of Family Christian Stores’ The James Fund. With a $10 donation through the Barnabus Bear program to the organization, shoppers are receiving Identity before it is released to all stores nationwide in Feb. 2009.
“I am so pumped to work alongside Family Christian and the James Fund,” says Pierre. “It’s been my privilege to be raised in a home with a heritage of giving. For generations, my family has been involved with missionaries to build and run Christian orphanages.”
With the promotion starting in mid-Sept., the store is expected to distribute100,000 copies of Pierre’s album before Christmas. With the donation to The James Fund, an organization that helps widows and orphans both locally and worldwide, shoppers not only receive Identity, but a Barnabus bear that is given to an orphan in the consumer’s community or in a third world country.
“The Family Christian Stores James Fund is enjoying the partnership with Robert Pierre, in support of orphans and widows,” says The Family Christian Stores James Fund president Steve Biondo. “As we invite our customers to adopt a Barnabus Bear on behalf of orphans, the customers are pleased to be receiving the new release from Robert as a gift. Customers have returned to comment that Robert's music is strong and energetic. Parents appreciate Robert's challenge to the youth of America to find and enjoy your Identity in Christ.”
Identity will release to all stores nationwide in Feb. 09 with three additional tracks. The record is also currently available on iTunes. Produced by Matt Bronlewee (DC Talk, Steven Curtis Chapman, Tobymac), Identity includes 10 tracks such as “Breaking My Heart,” “Don’t Miss This” and “I’m Not Perfect.” Four of the new songs were even written by the high school sophomore who titled his record Identity after performing for over a quarter of a million people on the road and realizing that his generation was having an Identity crisis and needed to be reminded of their Identity in their creator.
Pierre is currently on the iShine Live tour with Luke Benward, The Rubyz and Paige Armstrong. Visit www.Robertpierre.com or www.ishinelive.com for the most updated tour information.
