New Song “ARMY FRONTLINES”

I declare this over Hollywood, and pray for revival over the land. I pray for the purity movement and for people to come to know the Lord through the airwaves. I pray this song blesses you, and encourages you, especially if you are on the front lines of media, ministry or in Hollywood.

Lauren Daigle New Album Debuts to #1 & She Appears on ELLEN’s Daytime Show

AA5B5B27-5750-4274-BEE3-5A361041842A.png

According to sources, Lauren Daigle, christian worship CCM artist reached to the top of the charts with her latest album. She sounds like a mixture between Kari Jobe meets Adele, and has a raspy breathy voice that is powerful and life changing. Her songs, “Trust in You,” and “How Can It Be,” (2015) are some of my favorites from her first debut album. She has been nominated for a Grammy and is a Dove Award winning artist.

Recently, Daigle’s new released album, “Look Up Child,” reached #1 on the charts and she was invited to come on to the daytime talk show “ELLEN.” This is a big step in the christian music world, in what I call HOLYWOOD, where artists are merging into the secular to shine their light. I love seeing someone who I have been so impacted by musically, vocally and even spiritually in my own walk with the Lord through worship to see her reach so many people.

It’s wonderful to see that people are able to use their gifts and talents to bless others, plant seeds, share the Gospel and even spread hope in the midst of hard times. Lauren Daigle is a brave singer-songwriter to be able to address some of her own personal struggles through writing her latest album, which is real and raw.

Lecrae and Tori Kelly Perform on “Good Morning America”

BA46C6DC-A018-4F82-9C86-BD86DC907E7C

Lecrae is a two-time Grammy-winning artist and has merged from the Christian music industry into the secular. He is well known for his album Gravity (one of my favorites), along with Anomaly and Church Clothes, the mixtape. Lecrae has emerged from Christian networks such as JUCE TV Network to BET, and has climbed the charts from the gospel genres in music to the mainstream media.
Tori Kelly was discovered on YouTube by Justin Bieber’s manager, Scooter Braun. Kelly was signed to Capitol Records after releasing her own independent EP, Handmade Songs by Tori Kelly, while posting on her YouTube channel. Her debut album, Unbreakable Smile, released in the secular world of music, got her a spot on the Billboard Hot 100’s list for her single, “Nobody Love.” She has come a long way, being nominated for a Grammy, working with artists like Amy Grant and now Lecrae. Kelly is one of those artists I feel are undercover for the Lord, but are super successful and a positive influence.

Check out the lyrics in the song by Lecrae:
They say fear haunts
And pain hates
I say pain strengthens
And fear drives faith
And I don’t know all of the outcomes
Don’t know what happens tomorrow
But when that ocean of doubt comes
Don’t let me drown in my sorrow
And don’t let me stay at the bottom
I feel like this hole is too deep to climb
I’ve been lookin’ for a way out
But I’ll settle for a peace of mind
Picking up the pieces of my life and hopin’ that I’ll put together something right
Tell me all I got is all I need
Tell me you gonna help me stand and fight
The world trying to play with my soul
I’m just trying to find where to go
I’m trying to remember the way
I’m trying to get back to my home
But I can’t do this on my own
That’s why I’m just trusting in you
‘Cuz I don’t know where else to go
And I don’t know what else to do
No, don’t let the fear
Make you feel like you can’t fight this on your own
You know I, I’ll be there for you no matter where you go
You’ll never be alone, no…

Do you agree there is a “Holywood” movement rising up in Hollywood? I am so happy that Lecrae and Tori Kelly collaborated—are you?

REVIVAL IN KOREA TOWN: LOS ANGELES THE HUB OF HOLYWOOD

IMG_4089.JPG

The Los Angeles area, I believe will be the epicenter of revival in these coming days of restoration in the church and in the nations. Just as in the days of Esther, the pinnacle of power was Persia, so as it is with Hollywood. Los Angeles “the city of angels,” is the main place of power where the Lord is going to launch many ministries and will affect many influencers. Holywood is not just in California, but rather the Holywood movement is going to be global. The Lord is allowing the next Jesus Movement and revival in the church from this area, simply because of its influence. There is no special favoritism over this region necessarily but it just so happens to be one of the most powerful places in the world. Hollywood will be affected by God’s in time warriors- the Sons and daughters of God.

For the earnest expectation of the creation waits for the manifestation of the sons of God.” {Romans 8:19}

In central Los Angeles, just in the middle of Korea Town, there is a church, “His Way Life” church where the Gospel is being spread and the glory of the Lord is present. Pastor Ben Lim, has been faithfully serving the community over 7 years at his Dad’s home base where he pastored for several years until Ben took over. Although Lim is young, he is very wise at the youthful age of 26. God is raising up YOUNG leaders who are on fire for Jesus Christ and are spreading the Word of the Lord!!

Ben preaches in Asia, Southeast Asia, and even recently went to Africa. He is passionate to share the Lord’s presence with his peers as well as those globally! Keep Pastor Ben in prayer as I believe there is promotion coming for his ministry, television ministry and more in Holywood!

22042096_584078028649724_7434986742870306312_o

He is the director of Open Heaven Cry, a missions network that is focused on bringing forth greater unity and revival in the nations. His ministry is accompanied with notable signs, wonders, and miracles. Peoples’ lives are never the same after encountering the Lord in his meetings. He has ministered in evangelistic crusades in Pakistan and Dubai seeing thousands come to Jesus! He has had the honor of meeting with many of giants and generals of our faith. He is the author and publisher of Men of Valor, which is translated both in English and Spanish and his second book will be released by the end of 2017. He is the CEO and Founder of Ben Lim TV, which features Fire Evangelism… Ben Lim TV is a fresh network, that aims to make revival a reality through media and social media.” (Source: http://b100lim.org/meet-ben-lim)

I believe “His Way Life” church is one of the many wells where people will encounter God…history is in the making right now in Los Angeles! God is about to birth the biggest revival we have seen since the 1970’s Jesus movement as well as the Azuza Revival in the 1900’s. We are living in exciting times, especially with the Word of God and all of the things we see in the news lining up with scripture it is really uncanny.

OPEN-HEAVENS-5-DAYS-GLORY-1024x614

Recently, Pastor Ben Lim had a conference called, “OPEN HEAVENS: 5 Days of Glory,” featuring Benjo Valcobero (from Kim Clement’s House of Destiny), Lindy Ann (from South Africa), David Lomberlin, and Brandon Gaison. The conference was in October of 2017 and was powerful. Lindy-Ann, a powerful woman of God, who was prayed over by Reinhard Bonke, is an Esther type of evangelist who speaks the truth with a heartfelt, genuine love. Her messages and testimonies drew me to tears and I felt the oil of the anointing come on my heart again to renew my passion for the Gospel in Los Angeles and around the world.

I love all you readers and I am praying for you!! Jesus loves you so much!!!! God the Father wants you to know Him personally through His Son Jesus just call on His name and you shall be saved 🙂 (John 3 Bible)

Let’s pray for the leaders of the church, the Pastors, evangelists, the President, the church as a whole to be undivided but unified, and also for the next generation. Do you see the HOLY-WOOD MOVEMENT taking place in the media and in the rise of the church in media, music and through technology?? Comment below, share with your friends, and subscribe!!

American Idol singer Jordin Sparks Sings at the Harvest America Event & Crusade

IMG_1149

Jordin Sparks from American Idol (winner of season 6) recently partnered with Pastor Greg Laurie’s church and event for Harvest America in Phoenix, Arizona, on June 11, 2017. She was joined by singer-songwriter Phil Wickham, who normally leads at the Harvest Crusade in California at the Angels Stadium.

IMG_1150.PNG

Jordin has been on the top of the music charts for Billboard,and has sold millions of albums and traveled around the world. Her contribution to the Harvest America crusade was special because she typically sings in the secular world and was able to share her testimony and journey through Hollywood and back to her faith.

Throughout her success, according to Harvest.org, “Sparks admits that Jesus ‘was not the center, like He should have been…I wasn’t seeking Him like I should have been, I was only leaning on Him when times got tough…I was relying on my own strength.’ But at an Easter service in 2016, she recommitted her life to Jesus, and now says, ‘Jesus does His best work when you’re broken, and He puts the pieces back together.”

Watch Jordin’s recent rendition of “My Redeemer Lives” at the recent crusade where thousands got saved with Harvest America (through Greg Laurie’s church and ministry) and the webcast video from Harvest America based on “What Is the Meaning of Life?”

Let’s keep praying for influencers in Hollywood to shine God’s light through their lives and for the salvation of many through media, amen?

Walt Disney Studios- Invitation & Prayer

IMG_3335

Recently,  I had the privilege of going to the Walt Disney Studios in Burbank, CA. I had been driving past it a few times because I record songs for TV near the area and noticed the Mickey Mouse ears on the tall black surrounding gates. Last year, my friend David applied for an editing position at Disney, and was hired and I felt led to reach out to him. Meanwhile, my peer Aaron at TBN (The Trinity Broadcasting Network), felt the Lord say last week, “go to Disney Studios,” and he just happened to tell me about it.

I set up a lunch meeting for us three to do a tour and to eat in the Walt Disney studios cafe on site, Friday March 3. Another coincidence about Disney Studios (which, I have never been to, and quite frankly it wasn’t on my list of places to necessarily go), but at the House of Prayer last week someone mentioned we need to pray for Hollywood (aka Holy-wood), and the revival that would soon take place and we need to pray for “DISNEY STUDIOS.” Sheesh, how many confirmations could I get to go?Yesterday was so powerful and a very neat experience. David greeted us at the Zorro entry and we all walked around the studio lot where many television shows are filmed. The gift shop had the “Beauty and the Beast” theme, (soon to be released March 2017), which is one of my all time favorite movies since I was a little girl.We headed over to lunch after a walk through of the lots, and we saw an old fashioned office type of building which I felt in my spirit was historical. David said, yes that it was an original office that Disney used and they transported it to Buena Vista Street in Burbank because it was such a significant and original Disney Studio.

After lunch, we walked over to a garden area with statues of Walt and Mickey, and a wall of people’s hands imprinted with a legacy plaque all over the campus. Many legendary people like Julia Andrews were there, as well as other iconic influencers. In the midst of taking photos and wrapping up our meeting, Aaron walks over to a man in a wheel chair and also, a lady who had brought him in as a guest. I knew when Aaron was talking with him he would want to pray for healing over him.

David had to get back to his editing bay and a meeting and we said our goodbyes and I walked over to meet the man in the wheelchair named Baroque from Bosnia. He smiled and seemed super friendly and we witnessed to him and the lady and prayed for him. We prayed for healing in Baroque’s legs as he was shot at in the war and was paralyzed from the waist down. What a wonderful day to share the Gospel and the good news of Jesus!


Holywood is here and many Christian groups such as the Hollywood Prayer Network and other ministries are doing studio prayer walks. So awesome! Love how God opens doors and shows us He is guiding us to be apart of His big plan! Keep praying for Holywood!

 

Miracle Story: My Music Debut on KKLA 99.5FM with Reaching Out Radio “Building God’s Kingdom in Hollywood”

image.jpeg

As many of you know I am a singer- songwriter, and mainly a Christian contemporary artist. Last year I made a list and found all the Christian radio stations in the U.S. and planned on going down to the list to submit my new song, “The Other Side (Amazing Grace)” which is a miracle song in itself. (Produced by Grammy winning engineer Nathan Dantzler, and Capitol CMG’s Joshua Silverberg-another divine connection from the Lord).

So I sent my song last year to the Fish LA Radio (a Contemporary Christian radio station) and didn’t hear back assuming they receive a lot of submissions and emails. Then, approximately two weeks ago, (in July) I sent a letter of interest to want to so resume’ to see if there was a possibly part-time job opportunity. I got a response about my letter of interest, but they were not hiring at the a Fish LA Christian music station but rather KKLA (99.5 FM) which, is a more Pastoral and Christian talk radio. I know the station well and had found a KKLA flier randomly in an old journal, but didn’t think it could be possible. Also, a week prior to emailing the Fish LA for job and didn’t know KKLA owns the Fish…God is so powerful.

DIVINE ENCOUNTERS & GOD’S TIMING

After my best friend’s sons party I left the gated community in Beverly Hills on a beautiful Saturday in July, and rolled down my window to say goodbye to Steve my friend. I don’t stop for every guard and when I entered a different guard was on duty. Steve is a friend of mine now and has been a blessing to me and I hope to have been an encouragement to him. I blessed him with my worship cd and we talk music all the time and about Jesus because, well that’s just who I am and what I love to do! He is so cool and nice and I always love stopping to say hi. This time I stopped it was different, and God had plans in store. I was somewhat discouraged not knowing the next steps in my life, thankful for what God has done in TV and through my music so far but thinking I have such a long way to go and asking God when will he launch my music? When would I be on the radio? It just seems like forever… But I do trust God and know He is faithful and always good. He is ALWAYS on time.

As I stop and I’m about to go out of the private gate, Steve asked how I was and visa versa and I told him I was at a cross roads waiting to hear about what God wants next for my music and he said, “I want you to meet my friend Elisa, Christina she is a mighty woman of God and loves Jesus like you… Can I give her your number? You know she works for a radio station called KKLA… She will have you on her show I’m sure sometime!” In my head I’m like, “Um, wait excuse me?! Can you repeat that??! Did he say KKLA?!” What are the odds out of ALL THE RADIO STATIONS IN LOS ANGELES, CA and of all people of all timing?! He didn’t have to be at work at that exact moment, he didn’t have to connect me to Elisa that exact week, nor did I have to roll down my window and have our usual talk. God is amazing friends and His timing is PERFECT. (Ecclesiastes 3)

I told him God had me to send my letter of interest for a job that the Fish LA Radio sent me, but I hadn’t gotten to send it yet, but there was an old KKLA brochure flier on my desk at home literally while he was telling me this… A huge sign from God.

[Image: Flier at home just sitting on desk]

I’m like, “Steve, I was just about to ask them about a job!” Not to mention, I had a little list of my week and my plan of what I would do for music Monday’s and I had an idea to start my own radio show for Youtube Tuesday’s from home, and I wrote out the rest of the days of the week for blogging, Project Inspired, JUCE TV, church, and so forth. We will come back to this point in a minute. It’s as if God opened the door before I even knocked on it… And it’s not easy just jumping in to be on a radio show nor is it easy to get your song playing on radio! Only God could set this up!

Steve calls her Saturday, Elisa said she was busy and her friend Juan was in the hospital, having been diagnosed with stage 4 stomach cancer, and her mind was on overload and not thinking of really connecting with new people. Steve texted, (no response), called (no response), he called again and Elisa told me she said, “I knew something was going on when he kept calling me.” She said she wanted to just call him after Tuesday (that day was Saturday or Sunday). She said, I called him back and he said, “Elisa, I want you to meet Christi, she’s a woman of faith like you and she’s a singer who works at TBN, and she had a vision to work at KKLA!” She stopped, and felt like God wanted her to tune in and really listen. He was up to something special. Elisa has felt also she was called to Hollywood much like me with “Holywood.” Her whole show is called, “BUILDING GOD’s KINGDOM IN HOLLYWOOD!!!!” She said come in Tuesday (the exact day I wrote down on my schedule that I would start my own little Youtube radio show possibly from home). I felt God laugh like He had bigger plans than me doing this from home but rather I would be on a real radio station only 2 weeks later! Wow! Not only that but she had a connection and feeling she would one day be interviewed by TBN. What a divine appointment and connection.

HOLYWOOD & THE HOLLYWOOD FIRE SIGN

The radio show could have been about ANYTHING but her show is all about bringing good, clean music back to popular radio, resurrecting old Hollywood and even faith based films as we have been seeing in the theaters. Wow is this up my alley or WHAT?! Elisa felt the prompting of the Holy Spirit to call me and Sunday she called to have me on the show to tape and record Tuesday July 19, 2016. When I walked into the studio I met our co-host Mark, who is an awesome man of faith and also shares the same passion for the Gospel, healing Hollywood and bringing revival in entertainment and truthfully when we talked we could have spoken for an hour because the conversation just flowed.

Not only did the radio interview happen so smoothly but Elisa was impressed because I’m able to interview guests on JUCE TV (we talked about me interviewing her in the future and I saw the Hollywood sign all over her life). We had some confirmations and just a beautiful time of fellowship,  but also God sent us a huge sign of confirmation that we were going to be making changes in Hollywood. Right after I told her she was like a female Moses and she agreed God calls her this… She didn’t try to do radio but God opened this door… At that moment sitting in the booth at the restaurant we ate at after just me and Elisa, there was a screen behind her head in the restaurant and it said there was a fire in Hollywood on TV. Shocked,  I walked up to take a picture of the screen it said “grass fire in Hollywood,” and a man said, “The Hollywood sign area is on fire…” Wow God was confirming what He was doing… Allowing us to see what is happening. So many other miracles happened but I will attach photos to show you God’s power is real and is available to you too! Keep dreaming, praying, and standing up for the Gospel, and keep praying for Hollywood!

The show went well and airs Saturday, July 30 on 99.5 fm KKLA (11:30pm PT), and on Sunday July 31, 2016 at 6pm (PT). TUNE IN PLEASE! God bless you! Jesus loves you so much! Ask Christ in your heart if you do not know him as your personal Lord and Savior. (Read the Bible chapter 3 in the book of John).

Please tune in and continue to pray for this ministry and for the music! To God be the glory! Comment below if you have a prayer request! Find me on Facebook.com/ChristiGiven if you have a personal question or prayer request and share this blog with friends, and family.
