Thank you so much for reading Christian Music Makers. It’s a joy to bring you news about Christian and Gospel music artists year round, and I hope you celebrate Jesus this Christmas with family, friends and music. –Mark Weber
Here’s a song I wrote for those who are sad at Christmas:
Here’s Nathan Angelo singing “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” at the piano– nice!
Christian music maker Ashley Cleveland heads to Nome, Alaska this January for a women’s conference that’s part of “Missions Alaska,” which includes an outreach program to the native community. It’s Cleveland’s first ever visit to Alaska, and takes place right before her 57th birthday. Other concert spots in 2014 include California, Texas, Ontario and British Columbia.

Owl City, which is really just one guy– Adam Young– has paired up with TobyMac on the Christmas song, “Light of Christmas.” The song, from the new VeggieTales DVD, Merry Larry and the True Light of Christmas, is the only new Christmas song this season on Christian radio, and it’s a hit!
In the spirit of the season, Gospel music maker Earnest Pugh is giving away a free download of his stirring song, “Thank You,” via Soundcloud.com. Get it while you can! –Mark Weber
