Christian concert friends,

This is a pretty unique and fun opportunity so I wanted to share it with you... there are only 8 days left.

When this Des Moines, Iowa, girl was waitressing and working at the local mall, she was winning national and internation awards from professional music organizations for Christian singer and songwriter!

Years later she has won a lot more awards such as Song of the Year, Album of the Year, and more, while remaining an independent Christian Artist... with no record label, no professional management... just a singer writing songs, and traveling around the Midwest in her car, singing for churches. They fly her out to LA to present awards now to other songwriters, but she's still just a local Iowa girl trying to make a living... working day jobs, going to school, and trying to buy recording time.

She's been writing a Christmas album, trying to fund its recording.

Now you can help her make that a reality.

 

Meet Tammy Edwards:

Tammy Edwards “Mistletoe and Magic” Christmas CD

 

Dear Pastors and friends,

It has been my heart’s desire to record a Christmas CD of   beautiful Christmas music for quite some time.  Life events prevented me from pursuing my music for several years as I returned to college to work on completing my Bachelors degree in Writing at Drake University.  I will be graduating from college next year. My goal is to raise 15,000.00 to finish the second half of the CD. I have completed the first five songs already. This money will include studio time/recording, paying producers and musicians, mixing, mastering, artwork and production of the CD.  I have created a Kickstarter account to try and raise funds. On this site I offer several different incentive packages including pre ordering the new “Mistletoe and Magic” CD  to coming to your home or church and giving you a concert. Would you consider joining with me in making this happen? I am so excited and ready to be back in church concert ministry.  The link to visit my site is:

Thank you!
