We are pleased to share the release of MPR Artist, Jan Blaising‘s, lyric video release for the song, “It Wasn’t a Silent Night After All.”
Jan says, “The idea of the song is that when God chose to enter the world and become human, God didn’t choose perfect circumstances – so the song tries to capture the difficulty and the hardship of that holy night – because if God didn’t choose perfect circumstances when God came to earth, then that means God can enter into our imperfect circumstances too.”
Together with co-writer, Nancy Beaudette, the two crafted the idea into a song that retells the Christmas Story from a different vantage point. We hope you enjoy this fresh take on well known theme.
MPR Artist & Songwriter, Jan Blaising, joined MPR’s roster this year with her recording, “Faith, Hope, and Love”. The collection takes the listener on a journey of life – reflecting on experiences everyone has in common – faith, even when it’s easier to doubt, hope, even if it seems bleak, and love, unyielding, precious, and redeeming.
Jan, along with Nancy Beaudette, have been writing together for the past few years even though they live miles apart. “It’s amazing how easy it is to work together on facetime or skype”, say Nancy, “and after a couple of sessions it feels like we’re in the same room!”
At the recommendation of Connie Mims, a long time collaborator of Nancy’s, Rosewood Studio in Tyler, Texas became home for a few days as this team of creative women came together to produce, “Faith, Hope, and Love”.
MPR’s is excited to announce the release of, “It Wasn’t a Silent Night After All” just in time for Christmas. It has been released to radio internationally and you can stream it live on Jan Blaising’s Website now.
New Moonlit Pond Records Artist – Jan Blaising – has been writing with Nancy Beaudette for a couple of years now. Currently, Nancy (along with collegue Connie Mims) is co-producing her first CD. “It’s a real joy to watch Jan blossom as a songwriter and even a bigger thrill to have seen her reaction when I told her she won a songwriting award!”
Last spring they wrote an incredible song together about Jan’s mother, a woman who grew up on the west coast and then moved to the central plains to take up residence as a minister’s wife.
Nancy secretly entered “Mountains Tops and Oceans” in the Christian/Inspirational category of the Great American Song Contest last fall, and March 31, 2020, it was named 2nd Place Finalist.
The CD, which will be called, “Faith, Hope and Love”, will be released in the coming months. Moonlit Pond Records is really excited for you to hear all of the songs included on this project. We will keep you posted.
