The top 20 songs will be chosen by the American Idol A&R team by April 10th. If we hear anything at all, you can count on us sending out emails, phone calls, newsletters, whatever we can to spread the word. But I don't want to get ahead of ourselves. For now, what we need our friends & family to do - is to please stand with us and pray that God would open this door of opportunity for us - IF it is His will. This may not be our time, and that's ok. But we do know we are in the will of God for His plan for our lives, so we're taking every opportunity we're given to take that step of faith.
Oh! And before I forget - Jason's song is called "Be The Change". He wrote it with Lindsey Grant, who has a publishing deal and a record contract with Midas Music. She's the one actually singing the song on the demo. It's VERY rough, they recorded it Monday morning, dropped the CD off to me and I uploaded it with their entry to American Idol. But regardless, the song is great - and there may even be a chance that Lindsey might record for her next album. So who knows - this song could really go places!
If you want to hear the song, just push play on the little MP3 player below. Again, remember its not like his typical demos with a full band in a recording studio - its just Jason on guitar and Lindsey singing in the Midas offices.
