“Little Town of Bethlehem”, Music by Shawn McDonald

Shawn McDonald has not always been this fired up and passionate about Christ. In fact, just six years ago, McDonald was living in a world of drugs, alcohol, and wild parties, and felt about as far away from God as he thought possible. After hitting rock bottom in college, Shawn came to know the redemption and forgiveness in Christ Jesus through the prodding of his roommate. Although Shawn never before had an interest in music, he now found himself singing God’s praises both day and night. Placing all trust in God, Shawn followed His leading and was eventually asked to sign with Sparrow Records. McDonald has now released three studio recordings and two highly acclaimed live records and was named among the “10 Artists You Should Know” in CCM magazine.

    This is a great video! By coincidence, my only son was born around the holidays,
    ( December 31) and by coincidence, I am trying to get a Federally Reinforced hub based project /agency going, called “The Indigo Drum”. There have been problems so far including getting robbed, but i still have not given up. :) I heard this and was thinking about getting permission to use it for that purpose – IF things ever gel the way God wants them to.

    Kimberly! :)
