|« Ohio sports report: Many have the Cavaliers taking Otto Porter in NBA Draft||Song of the week: "For the Sake of the Call" by Steven Curtis Chapman »|
John Elefante is back with a new solo album, titled “On My Way to the Sun.” Produced by Elefante, the 10-track album is due May 7 from Kingheir Music, Elevate Entertainment and Syntax Distribution.
The Grammy and Dove Award winner is best known for his time as the lead vocalist for the rock outfit Kansas. The opening track, “This Is How The Story Goes,” reunites Elefante with former Kansas bandmates Rich Williams and David Ragsdale.
“Lyrically, I have more inside me that I need to say, more I need to express and convey than ever before,” says Elefante of what just may be the most personal project of his career. One of the album’s highlights is the song, “This Time,” which tells the story of a young teen’s divine encounter at an abortion clinic that ultimately leads her to save her baby. The somewhat autobiographical song touches close to home for Elefante, whose adopted daughter was rescued from abortion.
KEAGGY TO BE HONORED - Dove Award-winning singer/songwriter and guitarist extraordinaire Phil Keaggy will be honored with the prestigious ASCAP Golden Note Award in recognition of his career achievements. The ceremony will take place May 6 during the 35th Annual Christian Music Awards being held at the Franklin Theatre in Franklin, Tenn. The invitation-only gala will also honor the songwriters and publishers of ASCAP's most performed Christian songs of the past year.
