One World, One Heart Giveaway



No, I'm not giving away a guitar. If you'd like to give me a guitar, on the other hand... :-)

Through OWOH I've been honored to encounter so many artists , so many brilliant people pursuing what their hearts sing about. In that spirit, I've decided to join the ride!

Instead of giving away something I've made, I'm giving away something even more dear to me: the soundtrack to my heart. Only when a heart is at rest can it truly create. This soundtrack contains music that has brought healing, delight and refreshing to my life, particularly in my most tender, vulnerable, and therefore beautiful moments.

Who is included on my soundtrack? They are relatively unknown musicians, singer/songwriters whose poetry is the stuff of lullabies or moonlit kisses. Some I encountered as a teenager, some in college, others in young adulthood. My hope is that by giving away their music, they will gain exposure and encouragement to continue doing what their hearts sing about even as we continue in our art.

Here's how it works:

1) Leave one comment on this post by midnight CST on Valentine's Day (February 14, 2010)
2) Include your name, email address, and blog if you have one
3) On February 15, one winner (at least) will be selected via a random numbers generator and announced. Winner(s) will receive their music via iTunes gifting. If you do not have iTunes, you can download it for free here .

Soundtrack includes 5 songs selected from Michael Tyler, Jerry Wise, Seth Wood, Elizabeth Seasons and United Pursuit Band. Music selections are non-negotiable and will be gifted to the email address provided in winning comment(s) at my expense. An invalid email address will result in an automatic forfeiture and alternative winner chosen.

Thank you for participating in the One World, One Heart giveaway! Enjoy your ride!

Sandi said...

I am singing as I type. :-) Music is so important in my life. I would be lost without needle and thread in my hands but if I did not have my voice, I could not sing and the loss would be more than I could bear. I love the spoken word, the musical voice. I would love to be entered into your drawing!! What an awesome gift!

As my dear late father used to say, "Without a song, the day would never end." I know, it's a song lyric but hey, it's true! Our office is like a library, it's so quiet. So I plug in my little earbuds and listen to music all day long. Makes the day go faster!

So please enter me in your musical giveaway.
And stop by to see me if you get a chance! I'm #841

Nice to meet you and visit your blog! Love this giveaway! I am having so much fun looking at all the wonderful blogs. I don't have a blog, due to arthritis I cannot type much at all but I enjoy surfing the net. Thank you for a chance to win.

Gale said...

I would love to hear your soundtrack...I love finding little known musicians and could always use more music in my life! Thank you so much for your comment on Scribbleprints.com - I am so glad you can use the print-outs for your class! I taught briefly myself (7th grade English...only lasted 5 weeks). Those who say "If you can't do, teach" have never tried teaching. If you can teach, you can do just about anything.
