DOVE AWARD WINNER CHERI KEAGGY LAUNCHES KICKSTARTER CAMPAIGN FOR NO LONGER MY OWN

Fan Funded Project Slated For 2015 Release

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (November 20, 2014) - Dove Award-winning singer/songwriter Cheri Keaggy is heading back into the studio to record her ninth album, No Longer My Own, and she is once again turning to the innovative Kickstarter crowd-source business model to fund the project. Keaggy joins such high profile Christian recording artists as Five Iron Frenzy, Thousand Foot Krutch, Shaun Groves, John Schlitt and Carman, who also used the outside-the-box service to fund recent projects. Keaggy is no stranger to the business model, having successfully employed Kickstarter on her 2012 release, So I Can Tell.

While Keaggy admits to being both humbled and excited by the number of doors that opened for ministry through concerts, church services, women's events, TV appearances, interviews, and radio airplay as a direct result of So I Can Tell, she insists the story is far from over. With a quiver full of new songs that are burning in her soul, Keaggy prays No Longer My Own will inspire and embolden fellow saints to live more fearlessly for Christ.

"John 16:33 says, I have told you these things, so that in Me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world. In these troubled times, this is a message I believe the world needs to hear," Keaggy declares.

Keaggy admits to being completely content at her piano, where she transfers her most intense emotions onto the keys, creating lyrical music that conveys the often dichotomous wonder and beauty of the everyday struggle of following Christ.

"He is my passion," she says, "and I seek to know Him and continue to make Him known to anyone who will listen."

Using her piano as a pulpit from which to preach the Gospel, Keaggy has already spent considerable time in the studio with her uncle, Gospel Music Hall of Famer and guitar legend Phil Keaggy, prepping new songs for the project. Listeners can look forward to such vertically oriented songs of adoration as "Breathing Your Air," prayerful petitions like "Jesus, One and Only," thankful exultations like "No Longer My Own," and pensive intercessions like "Overcome."

Fans can help Keaggy produce No Longer My Own by backing her Kickstarter campaign, which launched November 17, with a pledge of as little as $1. The project will only be funded if at least $25,000 is pledged by Thursday, December 18, 2014 7:00 PM CST.

Keaggy is offering backers a wide assortment of perks, ranging from digital downloads of the completed project to autographed collector's posters to a free Cheri Keaggy concert and more. Pledges to Keaggy's No Longer My Own Kickstarter campaign can be made at kickstarter.com/projects/cherikeaggy/new-music-from-cheri-keaggy-no-longer-my-own.
