1 Girl Nation CD GIVEAWAY

We are a pretty musical home and we all enjoy music.  We try to listen to mostly Contemporary Christian music although we do expose our children to all music genres for learning.  Our 12 year old plays guitar and ukelele and has a journal full of songs she has written.  She is not formally trained in music (and she has no desire to be such) but she loves to be creative in her own unique ways through music.  I was really pleased to give her a new CD by 1 Girl Nation, which is a group aiming to reach preteens, teenagers and young adults.
About 1 Girl Nation's CD:
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!
Our Thoughts:
I was really excited to hear "While We're Young" on our local Christian radio station the other day while we were driving in the car.  I was even more surprised that in the short amount of time we have owned this CD, both of our girls knew almost all the lyrics and were singing along with the radio while the song played!  Our girls have listened to this CD non-stop and they love to dance around the room to the upbeat music.  They each have already picked a "favorite song" from this album that is played on repeat quite often too.  As a parent, I love that our girls have a group of Christian young ladies to see as successful music artist. They have good role models and these girls dress well-covered yet stylish, their makeup is normal and they don't look slutty and trashy.  This is a group of girls that we don't mind our girls wanting to be like.  The CD also contained a really cute, eye-catching fold-out poster of 1 Girl Nation.  It still hasn't found a wall to be displayed on because both of the girls want it in their room..ha!  1 Girl Nation's music is also enjoyable for me to listen to and I don't mind playing in the car when we are traveling around town.
