Kari Jobe

Congratulations are in order: Kari recently got engaged to Cody Carnes! Cody is a worship pastor at Gateway Church in Arizona. Mozel tov!

Kari Jobe knew at 10 that she would be a worship leader. Raised in a Christian home with a father who was a traveling minister, Kari began singing in church when she was 3. Through high school and college, Kari watched God set the path before her as she began leading worship in various places. She spent time studying at Oral Roberts University, Christ For The Nations and Dallas Baptist University, where she finished her Psychology and Pastoral Ministries degree.

For nearly a decade Kari has been a worship pastor at her home church in Southlake, TX. She is a featured worship leader on many Gateway Worship projects and in 2009 released her self-titled debut album (and promptly won her first Dove award). Since then she’s released more heartfelt worship albums and a Christmas project.

Family Bid’ness: Kari and her sister Kris have an exclusive line of jewelry and t-shirts where all the proceeds go to the cause of bringing an end to human trafficking and injustice.

ARTIST OF THE DAY
Hillsong Worship

One church, from the far corner of the earth has single-handedly inspired three generations worth of worship music. Hillsong. How did a single church connect with the global Church in such a meaningful way? Well they have always (and continue to) raise up leaders and encourage diversity in worship.

Every year the worship ministry produces a live worship album that includes hundreds of leaders from across the globe. This year’s release No Other Name is decidedly special. Blending the sounds of their variety of worship teams - including Dove Award nominees UNITED and Young & Free - the collection of original worship songs will no doubt inspire and enable worship teams and churches from all corners of the world.

ARTIST OF THE DAY
Unspoken

Unspoken first came together after lead singer Chad Mattson met guitarist Mike Gomez on a mission trip in the Dominican Republic. Chad had been struggling with drug and alcohol addiction for years, and decided to go on a mission trip to re-build his relationship with God. It was there in the Dominican Republic where Chad’s eyes were opened and he came to know Christ in a powerful way - and both Chad and Mike realized God was calling them to something big!

Chad and Mike began playing music together, and performing live shows based out of Maine. Eventually, bass player Jon Lowry and drummer Ariel Munoz from Puerto Rico, joined the duo and Unspoken was born.

Ministry: In addition to their music, the band is involved with Celebrate Recovery, a faith-based 12-step recovery program for substance abuse.

ARTIST OF THE DAY
Love & The Outcome

Imagine selling most of your worldly possessions (including the place you call home) and hitting the road to pursue a musical vision. You're leaving your native country. You have no idea what's ahead. You don't know where you'll rest for the night. You take stock and realize that all you have—or all you have left—are your songs, your dreams, your spouse, and your trust in God … and these four things make up the rope of hopefulness you cling to, day in and day out. This is the story of Love & The Outcome.

The husband-wife duo Love & The Outcome have packed their debut album with songs that speak to the faith journey they've braved these past few years. Vocalist Jodi King and her husband, bass player Chris Rademaker, have come a long way since selling their condo in Winnipeg, Manitoba (about 400 miles northwest of Minneapolis) in 2010 and hitting the road to share Jesus through music.

"We want to inspire people to follow Jesus,” Jodi says. "We want these songs to become a lifestyle, and hope that the truth of these songs goes beyond the thrill of the live show to plant a seed in people's hearts: to go for the things that they might be afraid to go for and join this joyful revolution. That's the whole point. A life that requires faith is worth living, and a life on the edge is one where you live hand-in-hand and arm-in-arm with God. That's what we're living for."

ARTIST OF THE DAY
Plumb

Tiffany Arbuckle Lee is the voice and face of the Christian band Plumb. Off and on, Plumb has been making amazing music that is never quite what the standard of the day happens to be. Call it being "before their time" or retro or inventive - Plumb pulls heartstrings with deep, passionate lyrics and sonically takes listeners to a place they can't get to through any other artist.

Tiffany Lee grew up in Fayetteville, GA and started her career as a backup singer. Her career is in its second decade and her music has been featured on six feature films (including Bruce Almighty) and many television shows (mostly on the CW). As a busy mom, Plumb doesn't have many concerts, but she is a studio rat and releases music once in a blue moon.

Over the past few years Tiffany has shared with her fans the struggle to restore her broken marriage. Through God’s presence, hard work and the support of their local church, the Lees rebuilt their family from a very desperate spot - and now try to help others along that journey. Their story is chronicled in Tiffany Lee’s first book I Need You Now.  

Street Cred: Tiffany Lee also writes for other singers - including Michelle Branch, Kimberly Locke and Mandy Moore.

ARTIST OF THE DAY
Lauren Daigle

Growing up in Lafayette, La., singer-songwriter Lauren Daigle had the opportunity to immerse herself in the soulful surroundings brimming with an eclectic mix of zydeco, blues and Cajun music. These diverse sounds inform Daigle’s colorful, distinct brand of worship music.

Lauren contracted a serious, contagious virus when she was in high school that caused her to be out of school for nearly two years. Although Daigle was able to keep up with her studies through correspondence courses, homeschooling and eventually attending a charter school, the last two years of high school were an unusually isolated season for Daigle who was just coming into her own as a teen.

However, it was this exaggerated period of loneliness that allowed the budding singer to become fully aware of her true desire to whole-heartedly pursue her musical aspirations. “Singing was becoming more than just a dream,” she says. “It was becoming, ‘How am I going to survive if I don’t do this?’”

She tried out several years - and moved forward twice in American Idol try-outs, but never experienced contentment in singing unless she was leading worship. Ultimately she connected with Centricity Records, doing background work for Jason Gray and launching her solo career with the release of How Can It Be.

Passionate about the plight of human trafficking, Daigle also hopes to use her platform to be a mouthpiece for those without a voice. It’s an issue she’s been fervent about since high school when one of her peers presented the then relatively taboo topic to her class. She’s especially attentive to the teens in her audience, realizing what a crucial season of life they are walking through and wanting her music to be a compass for those in search of the dreams God is sewing in their hearts.

ARTIST OF THE DAY
Burlap To Cashmere

Burlap to Cashmere was originally a college theater show that Steven Delopoulos put together for his final exam at Marymount Manhattan college in 1994. He later asked his then 14 year old cousin Johnny to join him in the show, and the band was formed. Members Mike Ernest (guitar) and childhood friend Theodore Pagano (drums) followed.

Christian music was booming in the late 90s and Burlap toured relentlessly. Ultimately that schedule took its toll and the band ceased to be. In 2007 the band recorded a new demo, but John (Johnny was so 1995) was involved in a car accident and subsequent fight that landed him in the hospital and killed the band’s return.

Flash forward again to 2011. Burlap to Cashmere released a full-length album, long form video and experienced a renaissance. Most recently the band began recording a crowd-funded album, due out before Christmas!
