About a month ago, I had the privilege of meeting Contemporary Christian music artists, Meredith Andrews at Christ Fest 2010 in Kilgore, Texas. It was a hot day in the Texas sun and I felt sorry for her. She shouldn't have been traveling so much. Yet, even at 8 months pregnant, Meredith still performed with a passion. For those of you who might not be familiar with her music, here's a little background on this beautiful young lady with a powerful voice.
Meredith Andrews is originally from Wilson, North Carolina, and when she sings, she has one thing in mind and that is to share the love of God for all people through her songs. There are so many people out there looking for answers. Christians and non-Christians alike need to be constanty reminded that they are never alone. God is always here. He loves and cares for all mankind and He will continually to reach out to His children As Long As It Takes.
Her debut album, The Invitation, released in 2008, introduced the world to the music of Meredith Andrews. She has a sound similar to that of Britt Nicole or Jaci Velasquez, but her worship focus and style is similar to Chris Tomlin, Matt Redman and Matt Maher. The message behind this first project was to invite people to experience God through worship and to challenge them to begin a relationship with Him. That theme is carried through most of the songs on the album. Her song , You Invite Me In, says Come as you are. Accept His invitation and welcome Him in. Songs like The River, and Living Water remind listeners that God says, all who weary and heavy laden, come and find rest, peace, satisfaction and contentment. The hit radio single,You Are Not Alone says just that. God is always here.
Meredith's latest project is called As Long As It Takes and features the hit single, Can Anybody Hear Me? This song is a powerful song of inspiration and encouragement to all those out there in the world struggling with issues and wondering: Is God real? Does He care? Does anybody care? Even though He seems far away, He is here and He does love us. The world needs a constant reminder that God is here no matter what. He loves us and He leaves us even when He feels so far away.
Say a prayer for Meredith today. On a recent Twitter post, she let us know that the doctor is monitoring the baby's heartbeat and is having Meredith rest and eat whenever possible. It won't be long now. We'll keep you posted as soon as we hear news of the baby boy's arrival.
