A three-time Dove Award winner, including the Gospel Music Association’s 2000 New Artist of the Year recipient, and multiple ASCAP Award winner, Ginny Owens has sold nearly one million albums. A top performer on the Christian radio charts with hits like “If You Want Me To,” “Free” and “I Wanna Be Moved,” among others, Owens’ music has impacted mainstream audiences at Lilith Fair, the Sundance Film Festival and the White House. Her music has received widespread film and television placement, including songs on the popular WB series’ “Roswell” and “Felicity.” Owens was featured on national television, including NBC’s “Today” and CNN, for her contribution to help rebuild New Orleans following Hurricane Katrina.
Born and raised in Jackson, Miss., Owens was discovering melodies on the piano almost before she could complete a sentence. Songs began to emerge from her fingers as the vision began to leave her eyes and by the age of three. A degenerative eye condition left Owens completely blind. Despite her physical challenge, Owens pursued a music career. Songs provide a window into a world Owens can’t see and an outlet for her to express her thoughts and dreams. Owens’ unique musical style and inspirational lyrics continue to appeal to Christian and mainstream audiences alike.
In 2005 Owens launched The Fingerprint Initiative, a hands-on, non-profit organization designed to “bring hope to the world, one project and one touch at a time.” The organization has partnered with and raised money for groups such as Compassion International, International Justice Mission and Habitat for Humanity.
This is my favorite song. I just love the lyrics and it flows so beautifully.
Ginny is an amazing woman with the voice of an angel in her songs and a heart of gold as she is not just Ginny a blind, Christian singer. She is SO much more. Ginny is a giver of her time as well. As you read above she has helped so many people through her “The Fingerprint Initiative” and in helping to rebuild New Orleans. Then she also touches people daily through her beautiful music.
Get In, I’m Driving! (Just released TODAY 9/13)
I was blessed to receive her CD to review as well as to offer one to my readers. But more on that in a minute. This new CD has a jazzy kind of soul to it in my opinion.
Her lyrics are what truly make the songs amazing!
If you listen to Christian music I think you will enjoy this CD. Her Contemporary style and the jazzy soul to this CD will be a welcome change to my Christian CD collection.
