WINNER at the GMA Canada Covenant Awards!
What a week! It has been a most incredible week! First of all, thank you to my incredible backers for your support. The Kickstarter campaign for “Tell Me a Story” is 65% funded with 31 amazing backers and still 20 days to go! I am so excited and grateful for you all! Please continue to spread the word so that we can reach the goal and get this CD off the ground. I love having you as a part of this project.
This past Wednesday was the GMA Canada Covenant Awards. I was blown away to receive 3 awards: Female Vocalist of the Year (for the 3rd year in a row!!), Inspirational Song of the Year and Collaboration of the Year. Here is the press release with all the details... http://canadianchristiannewsservice.com/ali-matthews-named-gma-female-vocalist-of-the-year/
I got to perform on the show with some of my favourite people. It was a very special night! The show will be televised tonight on CTS at 8 pm.
Many of us are still recovering from the excitement of the festivities but I was back in the studio today with Andrew Horrocks (who picked up the GMA Producer of the Year Award!!). We are finishing up the last few songs for the record and then we get busy with mixing and mastering. I’m so excited for you to hear these new songs! Thank you again for coming onboard with this project... from the bottom of my heart! Ali
My 7th CD "Tell Me a Story"…
A new collection of songs about hope, heartache and the power of community.
On Kickstarter! November 2013
“Tell Me a Story” is my 7th studio recording and I am so excited for people to hear these brand new songs. I have been writing and recording for this project over the past year and much of the work has already been done.
During the next month I will be in the final stages of recording, mixing, mastering and manufacturing this new CD. Your Kickstarter support will help to get this project out the door. In many ways, this is a “Kickfinisher” project. The funds raised will pay for these crucial final phases of the project.
