Robert Pierre cd Give-away

Robert Pierre's third cd, I'm All In, will be released on July 26, 2011. This is a very personal collection of  songs that Robert wrote or co-wrote (with the sole exception being Sing For Joy). The following is what Robert himself had to say about this cd:

“All of the songs have something to do with things I was going through my senior year,” Robert said of I’m All In, “preparing to say goodbye to friends and not really knowing what would come next, but finding comfort and peace in the Lord’s plan for my life. The Bible talks about how the eyes of the Lord are searching to and fro throughout the earth, searching for someone whose heart is wholly His, someone He can strongly support. This CD is me saying, ‘I’m all in.’”

The following is a list of links where you can check out Robert Pierre for yourself.  The Amazon link also will let you listen to samples of each song on the cd.

Ok, I admit that I am a bit torn on this one. The first song on the cd, I'm All In had a techno/ pop beat that, frankly, annoyed me. This continued for 2 more songs: lyrics I loved, but the music was just not what I wanted to hear. Many of the songs use this same style. The 4th track, Maker Of The Stars was more to my taste (and for those who know is NOT because of the title!! lol) I also really liked Sing For Joy, but my favorite was  the final track, Trust In You. Both the lyrics and the style touched me.

So, you can see why I am torn on this one. This is well done, and the lyrics really spoke to me, so this may be one I prefer to read instead. Seriously, I am sure my daughter or granddaughter will be grabbing my copy to enjoy!! I did hear Robert Pierre live last year on the WINTERJAM 2010 tour. I enjoyed his music, especially his version of  You Hold Me Now. I doubt if I would go just to hear him, though.  He is talented, but just not a right fit for me.

I said this is a review and a give-away, so here are the rules: Comment on this blog post (or to me if you have problems, so I can enter you myself) no later than 11:59pm CDT to be entered into a random drawing.

I am interested in hearing a new artist. Having a teenager makes this a double winner because she'll enjoy the first few sonbgs and i will enjoy the rest. :)
Thanks for the good review, it was very helpful

Great Lori! You may enjoy it all. I had a bit of a headache, and the techno-pop was also competing with the whiney country music phase Cody is going through!! :)
But I really did enjoy him in concert last year.

I'm wondering if you have chosen who will receive the cd? I have already been talking about his music and hope he goes far in his ministry :)

Cindy said...
