A GREAT CD...and the BEST can get one FREE!!

I have sat here and prayed and prayed for the words to say about the young lady that made this CD.  First, let me introduce you to KATE CARLSON:
Ha Ha....a silly picture, I know...but it shows her playful side!  Ok, is a better one...

This is actually the cover of her CD.

Kate is a Worship Leader for the Imagine Me Set Free conference that I attended in April.  She has such a pure heart for the Lord.  Several times during the weekend I was brought right into the throne room of the King while listening to her sing.  She has a sound like you have never heard. 

Since the retreat I have had several chances to "chat" with Kate on FB and Twitter.  I told her one day that I was proud of her for what she is doing to advance the kingdom.  She told me that it was not about her, that it was all about God!  She didn't want the praise for what she is doing.  All she wanted to know is that her music was ministering to someone.

Kate has been singing for a long time.  By the time she was 12 she had already sang several times in the main worship service of her church and sang with the youth worship team for the church she attended. At 14, she went out on a 6 week tour with the Young Continentals.  And the girl just has not stopped since!

You can read more about Kate HERE, and you can follow her on Face Book HERE or even on her sweet Momager's blog  HERE.  There is a link on Kate's blog to purchase the CD, you can have one sent to you or get the down loadable version. 

Kate has just put out her first EP or CD , not sure what the difference is...

While at the retreat all in attendance was given the chance to pre-order her music.  Well of course I ordered mine!  She had already touched my heart, and I wanted to support her in any way that I could.

Well, last week I got my CD!  And I have listened to it several times a day since!  Like I said, that girl can sing!  There are 5 songs on the disc, two of which Kate wrote.  Saving One and You are Able are AMAZING songs!  But she also does a great job with the other three songs.  Her version of Desert Song had me crying like a baby!

Ok, here's the deal!  A second copy of this AMAZING CD was provided FREE for review and for me to GIVE AWAY!  That's right!  You can get a copy of the CD free!  All you have to do is leave a comment here, tell me what your favorite praise song is, and you are in the drawing! (ok, you really don't have to tell me what your favorite song is, but I thought it would make it more interesting)!  I will pick a name on Monday and announce the winner Tuesday morning!

So, what are you waiting for?  click the leave a comment button and get in the drawing!
Ok...I can not help myself...I have to post these two pic's!  Kate enjoyed the Smoreo's at the retreat as well!

Don't forget to leave a comment!  I could be drawing your name on Monday and sending you one of these great CD's!

Thanks for inviting me to enter your give-away! Would love to hear it. My son loves Amy Grant's El Shaddai. He finds it on You Tube and plays it on the computer. We also love Shout to the Lord (which he also brings up on You Tube for us).
