Monday, January 17, 2011

I half-watched part of the Golden Globes last night. I'm not sure why I watched. I haven't seen most of the movies, tv shows or mini-series that were nominated - much less won. There's just something about "celebrity" that draws me in. It has me questioning whether I unconsciously worship these famous people. I guess idolatry is alive and well...

I probably should have been reading The Manna instead ...

John Mandeville

John Mandeville is one of Christian music's most acclaimed songwriters, writing and producing hits for artists such as Avalon, 4HIM, Point of Grace, and Tammy Trent, among others. Prior to his 2009 solo hit “Glorify,” Mandeville was awarded six certified Gold Records, wrote multiple #1 songs, and was nominated for three Dove Awards for Song of the Year with “Jesus Will Still Be There,” which was included in CCM Magazine’s 100 Greatest Songs in Christian Music.

It seemed like John had it all, but as his star was rising, his world came crumbling around him. Family troubles, financial hardships and personal demons all came crashing down on the Mandevilles. John says that it was only through worship and faith that they managed to come out on the other side. His debut solo album "We Belong To Heaven" is filled with the story of that faith.

  1. John's music is always inspiring to me. I enjoy how he can weave the lyrics so perfectly with the music; never tired of listening.
