Brittany Hargest's 'Love All the Way' (Review & Giveaway)

I'm not overly familiar with the hip-hop, music scene(And had never heard of Jump5), so receiving Brittany Hargest's new solo album, Love All The Way, for review was somewhat educational in nature (And I think that "Hip-Hop" is the correct terminology...??). ;)

We don't really listen to much pop radio in our home, so my children tend to be exposed to local radio stations only when they are carpooling with friends. When my Eldest heard Brittany's music she said that it reminded her of a particular station she's heard, but with lyrics that she didn't mind listening to.

Brittany's music is definitely in the "Dance" genre, with mostly lively upbeat tunes, although there are a couple of more introspective songs as well. Here's a video (Almost 10 minutes) with an overview of the making of the album. It includes little snippets of the songs, to give you taste:

There are some fun tunes like Bring the Party, which encourages us to be joyous Christians, and encouraging songs like He Can, with the rally cry of "When you can't, He can! When you fall, He stands for the weak, for the poor, for the broken man. When it's way too much, and you can't, He can!" I'm sure I'd rather that my daughter listen to this than what I imagine comes from the lips of most secular pop singers.

I think Brittany's album could serve as a crossover album to some degree, allowing our youth to be musically relevant, with uplifting lyrics which speak to finding contentment in God's love, not the love of mankind.

Brittany's website has a very good overview of each song on the album on the home page. You can visit her on Facebook and Twitter, as well as purchase the entire album or specific songs on itunes.

Now for the good news! I have the opportunity to give away one copy of Love All The Way to one of my readers~(Think "Christmas Present" for the teen in your life! :D )
