Good Friday Music – Colton Dixon

29 Mar

Happy Good Friday everyone! In honor of this special holiday, I thought some uplifting, spiritual music was in order. Some of you may be wrinkling your noses because I know not everyone is in to that type of music, and that’s ok. But before you write off that genre, take a look at new Christian artist Colton Dixon. Many of you know him from American Idol last season.

I was a fan of Colton from day one when he performed Paramore’s “Decode”, fell in love with his rock star hairdo, and love that he’s a fellow Nashvillian (my hometown). And let’s face it – this kid is insanely talented. He plays the piano, sings beautifully and even writes his own songs. Triple threat! His new album, “A Messenger” debuted at number 15 on the Billboard Hot 200, and number 1 on the U.S. Christian Chart. Not too shabby for a former Idol! I am thrilled with this kid’s success and can’t wait to see all the good that he uses his newfound fame for.

Here is his song “Never Gone”, which new contestant Angie Miller performed a few weeks ago on Idol.

Check out his performance of “Love Has Come For Me” from last night on Idol here!
