1 Girl Nation ~ CD Review & Giveaway

EDITED 11/27/13:  The winner of the 1 Girl Nation CD is Laura!  Congratulations!

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received one or more of the products or services mentioned above for free in hope that I would mention it on my blog. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's 16 CFR, Part 255: "Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising."

It's not too often that I get to offer two giveaways in one week, but this week I do!  In case you missed the first one, go here ... The Sparkle Box.  But be sure to come back to enter this one!

We love music in our house.  Between my daughter playing her violin and all of us listening to CD's, Pandora, or iTunes, there is almost always some type of music going on here.  In fact, as I type this, Keira is listening to Bethoven's Fur Elise.  Look it up on You Tube.  I bet you know it.

Anyway, having an opportunity to check out a new music CD sounded great to me.  

Since this CD seemed geared toward younger girls, I asked Keira to listen to it and review it for me.  She's 15 so she knows what's cool and what's not.  :)  Here's what she wrote ...

I give this CD 4.5 stars out of 5.  Overall, these girls are extremely talented.  "Daddy's Girl" was an okay song but it certainly wasn't my favorite.  It seemed like it didn't fit in with the other songs.  My favorite song is "Invade" because I want to do that - invade the world for God.  I also liked "Vertical" and "In the Eyes".  I see the promise in this group and look forward to hearing more from 1 Girl Nation.

So there you have it ... straight from my teenager!  :)

About 1 Girl Nation:
Landing in the space where One Direction meets TobyMac, 1 Girl Nation is an exciting blend of upbeat pop music, with lyrics that are totally focused on living life for God, even while you’re young. 1GN, as they’ve already been dubbed, stars Carmen, Kayli, Kelsey, Lauryn Taylor and Lindsey, five girls with a passion for telling their fans about Christ through their music. Their first single, “While We’re Young,” can be heard on radio stations across the country and their self-titled debut album is available now!

This music CD is definitely geared toward preteens, teens, and young adults.  I don't dislike it, but it probably won't be the first one I choose to listen to.

If you would like an opportunity to win your own copy of the 1 Girl Nation CD, simply leave a comment telling me who you'd like to win this for.  Do you have a daughter who would love it?  A niece?  A granddaughter?  A friend?  Just shout it out in the comments and you are entered.  

Last day to enter is Tuesday, November 26.  Winner will be picked randomly on Wednesday, November 27 and notified via email.  So be sure you leave your contact information.

Thanks for stopping by!
