(Nashville, Tennessee) January 3, 2011 – One of Christian music’s most recognized and beloved artists is opening the New Year with an exciting announcement: Rebecca St. James is engaged to be married!

St. James will wed the man she’s been waiting for – Jacob Fink — on a date soon to be announced. The Christmas Day proposal came at Rebecca’s family farm in Franklin, Tennessee where she was presented the brilliant, solitaire diamond ring. The groom-to-be asked her parents, David and Helen, for their blessing prior to him surprising Rebecca with the engagement ring and his request for her hand in marriage.

Jacob, originally from Colorado, now resides in Southern California. He spent two years as a missionary in South Africa before attending college and graduating summa cum laude with a degree in communications and an emphasis on film production. He worked in television production prior to his current career in music. The couple met through mutual friends in Los Angeles.

Noted Rebecca in a communication to friends: “We are truly amazed at finding our dreams and ideals met in the love we’ve found. We are exceedingly grateful for this precious gift from God.”

Rebecca’s signature song, “Wait For Me,” released in 2000, inspired national attention to the ideals of purity before marriage—a self-lived message she has taken to young people worldwide from her concert stages and through her best-selling books and personal testimony.

2011 will be a milestone year for St. James, who recently signed with Provident Label Group’s Beach Street/ Reunion Records. Her new studio album I Will Praise You releases on April 5 with its first single “Shine Your Glory Down” impacting radio on Feb. 11.

Currently planning promotional and concert tour dates, and a wedding, Rebecca is also putting final touches on her ninth book, “What Is He Thinking?” (Hachette/Faithwords), which is due out in September.

About Rebecca St. James:
Emerging on the music scene in the mid-90’s while still in her teens, the Australian born St. James has become one of Contemporary Christian Music’s most enduring and beloved artists, embraced by audiences worldwide. Her signature sound yielded 17 Top 10 singles (nine of which were No. 1) and two RIAA Gold Album certifications (commemorating sales of more than 500,000 units) for God (1996), as well as GRAMMY winning Pray (1999).

In addition to a successful recording and touring career, Rebecca is an accomplished author having released eight noteworthy Christian market titles including the popular devotional, Pure, (Hachette/Faithwords, 2009) that ranked in the Top 10 on the CBA Bestseller Chart.

While fully engaged in balancing the demands of recording, touring and authoring, this modern-day renaissance woman made the decision three years ago to pursue acting. Rebecca’s first dramatic lead role in the film Sarah’s Choice released in 2009 by Pureflix Entertainment and won both critical and audience acclaim for its strong pro-life message.

While readying for Sarah’s Choice, Rebecca was led to create a series of national Crisis Pregnancy events. “I saw the work this organization was doing and I just had to help,” she notes. She also continues to connect with teen girls and their mothers at her well attended “SHE” events which meld music and ministry into an evening of encouragement and practical advice on living Godly lives.

Having traveled the globe as an advocate of faith and values matters ranging from purity to pro-life, Rebecca has been invited to speak or perform in venues including the White House and is even a frequent guest on the highly rated FOX News show, “Hannity” anchored by Sean Hannity.

Rebecca St. James will release her ninth career studio album, I Will Praise You, on April 5, 2011.
