The single, written in honor of Schlitt’s wife, Dorla, and featured on the legendary vocalist’s current CD, The Greater Cause, is going for adds today to AC/INSPO, CHR and Rock-formatted Christian radio stations in celebration of Valentine’s Day.

“We believe ‘The Gift’ is a wonderful song for programmers to add throughout the first half of February in preparation for Valentine’s Day,” says Jeff McLaughlin, president of A-Sides Radio Promotion. “Its message of love between a man and a woman, which God created, will be a nice addition to the playlist during this season.”

The single, written by the CD’s producer Dan Needham, along with Grammy Award winner Andrew Ramsey (Jonny Lang, Mandisa, India.Arie) and Schlitt, was named a Top Relationship Song by NewReleaseTuesday in 2012 in a category that included songs by Chris August, Sara Groves, Bebo Norman, Todd Agnew, Francesca Battistelli, Dave Barnes, JJ Heller, Audrey Assad, Natalie LaRue and Lara Landon.

“It is wonderful to see that the song, ‘The Gift,’ which celebrates the special relationship between my God, my wife, and myself, can also be special to others,” says Schlitt, who says the song is based on Ecclesiastes 4:9, 12 (“Two are better than one” and “a three-fold cord is not quickly broken”).

“I know that God brought us together and by His grace kept us through those years and the foolishness that went with them. It was in the process of her coming to Christ first and Jesus using her in my life that changed everything for me…and for us,” Schlitt says. “It’s like the picture of the triangle with Jesus at the top point. He loves us. We love Him. Because of that we can love each other. With our faith in Jesus at the center of our relationship, our knowledge of our true selves helps us to truly grow in our love for one another.”
