(February 4, 2013) —– Jason Lovins, founder and frontman for The Jason Lovins Band, went national this month with the story of his mother’s rape and the eventual birth of her son who would become a Christian music performer. The powerful testimony and life story from Lovins was heard across the country through such media outlets as the Mike Huckabee Radio Show, In The Market with Janet Parshall, Religion News Service, American Family Radio, among many other upcoming feature stories.
“This is the first time I have taken my birth story on a national platform,” explains Lovins. “I tell my story at each concert and I was seeing the impact it was having with fans, and I even met other families who chose life in the case of rape. I just wanted to let people know there are options and how grateful I am that my mother followed her faith.”
Lovins’ mother was a victim of rape when she was only 15 years old. She became pregnant from that rape and with her mother’s urging she decided to carry the fetus full-term and keep the baby. Even though she was a young mother, she finished her high school education and Lovins’ first memory is of attending his mom’s graduation at 3 years old. At the same time, Jason’s mother and grandmother made it very clear to him that even though he didn’t have an earthly father; Lovins’ had a heavenly Father who loved him more than he could even know. And Jason shares his powerful testimony from the stage during The Jason Lovins Band performances around the country.
The Jason Lovins Band has become one of the most active and successful independent touring bands that is on the road 40 weeks out of the year. The group released their 4th project, Promises, this month that offers 12 new songs, with part of the album being co-written by the band members and other songwriters. Sonically, it takes the listener to more of a CCM sound but with the familiar worship lyrics that always directs the listener to turn their eyes toward Jesus.
The group’s journey has given the band members; Jason Lovins, Jose Mendoza, Rodney Mora, and Chasen Little, the chance to share the stage with such legendary performers as Michael W. Smith, MercyMe, Kari Jobe and Big Daddy Weave among others. The group has also performed at Billy Graham events, which included writing the song Journey for a BGEA TV Special, TBN’s Praise The Lord, and Daystar Television.
