Wow. Look what happens when you leave the country for 6.5 years. I've hardly heard of any of those Christian singers! There's not a huge hot market for Christian music over here in Japan Land.

Thanks for sharing your lists with us, Alana. As I said, I have a hard time deciding on songs too. I am looking for some good worship music, so I'll have to check these out.

Looks like we have similiar tastes in music. :)

Hi Alana,
I made my way to your blog via the LPM blog. I love the video of your son. It's so neat when kids can learn to sing and dance at such an early age and know God's Truths so young.
I haven't had a chance to read further, but will be back.
