Dove Award-winner Cheri Keaggy’s Kickstarter campaign ends today, but there is still time for fans to join the fun and take advantage of of some exciting new rewards!
Keaggy is thrilled to announce that she has surpassed her initial goal of $25,000, which will be used to complete the recording of her ninth album, No Longer My Own. All additional funds raised until the deadline tonight will be used for marketing and other expenses related to the CD.
“One of my friends said to me recently, ‘What God orders, He pays for.’ This has been an incredible journey to see God do just that!” says Keaggy. “I can’t wait to get back into the studio to see No Longer My Own come to fruition.”
This week, the beloved singer/songwriter added three new Kickstarter rewards which offer her fans something special that they can’t get anywhere else.
The new rewards include becoming the proud owner of an acoustic guitar selected and autographed by Keaggy’s uncle, Gospel Music Hall of Famer Phil Keaggy, voted one of the top finger style guitarists in the world by Guitar Player Magazine; a stuido experience with Cheri Keaggy complete with contributing to a song on the new project and joining her for a meal; and “The Songwriter’s Package,” which includes a songwriting session and a meal with Cheri Keaggy, followed by demoing the new song to take home as a souvenir.
Keaggy is no stranger to Kickstarter, having employed it to fund her 2012 CD, So I Can Tell.She is both humbled and excited by the number of doors that opened for ministry through concerts, church services, women’s events, TV appearances, interviews, and radio airplay as a direct result of So I Can Tell, but shesays the story is far from over. With a quiver full of new songs that are burning in her soul, Keaggy prays No Longer My Own will inspire and embolden fellow saints to live more fearlessly for Christ.
Using her piano as a pulpit from which to preach the Gospel, Keaggy has already spent considerable time in the studio with her uncle, Gospel Music Hall of Famer and guitar legend Phil Keaggy, prepping new songs for the project. Listeners can look forward to such vertically oriented songs of adoration as “Breathing Your Air,” prayerful petitions like “Jesus, One and Only,” thankful exultations like “No Longer My Own,” and pensive intercessions like “Overcome.”
Fans can help Keaggy produce No Longer My Own by backing her Kickstarter campaign, which launched November 17, with a pledge of as little as $1. Keaggy is offering backers a wide assortment of perks, ranging from digital downloads of the completed project to autographed collector’s posters to a free Cheri Keaggy concert and more.
