MEDIA ADVISORY, Jan. 13, 2011 /Christian Newswire/ — Pushing the envelope, Jeanne (pronounced Jean) Marie’s Destiny CD is here — We can lead the youth to living water but can we get them to drink.

Her music is about getting our youth to listen over and over again. It is not about the world entering into Gods music it’s about bringing His music and the light of Jesus to the world. To be in the world yet set apart from it, ministering to our youth. Jeanne Marie is a Christian recording artist who uses music to bring the message of the Gospel and God’s Word to minister to young people, so that they might be positively influenced, to live a life that reflects Jesus Christ.

After serving five years in inner-city missions she had seen the pain, struggles, and trials that these precious children of God where living. Jeanne notes, “One of the escapes from their life is music. I decided to collaborate with three other songwriters. As I began to share my stories, my passion, and the burden that God had laid on my heart, the desire to reach these young people with the love and forgiving grace of our Lord and Savior.” With the creative gifts of an incredible producer Krunti Hester (Jeanne’s husband), they knew they needed to push the envelope and create contemporary Christian music that speaks truth from the scriptures with an edgy flavor that is Today’s Music. Her music has been received with excitement as she débuted some of the songs from the CD on the AFR Music Network back in October, bringing Worship, Praise, and Hearing the Gospel to an all new contemporary level that the youth are very enthused and excited about.

The hope is that Radio will catch the vision and ministry. Through this music we must reach the unreachable group of young people, and reveal His love and His purpose for our lives. “Music has always been a love and part of my life from a very early age. When I fell in love with Jesus Christ at the age of 12, I realized I could use my voice to worship Him. So by the age of 15 I began singing in church, and between church and my high school choir there was a lot performing and times of worship in song. From early on in my high school years I felt the call of God on my life, telling me to serve in the inner city. I believe that through this album God wants me to continue my mission’s work by reaching the lost and letting the light of Jesus shine through me and the music He has given me.”

Through her Christ-centered music Jeanne is praying that many will be reached and our hope is that Christian music stations around the country will catch the vision that God has given us. “So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” — Rom 10:17
