Have you listened to the radio lately? OMG! It's crazy or "cray" as my niece reminds me. I'm so glad to see a group sharing good music with a positive message.
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!
Music is a constant in the Three Boys and an Old Lady household and finding music the entire family can enjoy can be a challenge sometimes. Fortunately there are groups like 1GN who record music that not only rocks but rocks with a message. I decided to let my 11- and 13-year nieces help facilitate this review in exchange for the CD.
What are your favorite songs on the 1GN CD?
"Love Like Crazy" and "Count Your Rainbows"
What did you like most about these songs?
"I like 'Love Like Crazy' because it was nice. It was a happy song." "I liked the lyrics. It's a pretty song. They sound like Selena Gomez." "Yeah, kinda like Selena but different. I know all the words."
What is one reason people should check out 1GN?
"Because they sing nice." "Well, I think everyone should buy this because they are kids. They could grow up and be really famous and maybe get a t.v. show and that would be nice."
Well there you have it. Many thanks to my guest reviewers but I'd like to add a few things.
It didn't take long for the kids to warm up to 1GN. I was surprised they wanted to bring it in from the car to the house. I'm glad as I kinda' liked the songs myself. It's nice to hear up tempo music of faith and better yet, nice to see a group of young ladies not confirmed to the wiles of the world. Staying true to themselves and their beliefs.
