With a very radio-friendly sound and a tenacious reliance on a great and mighty God, expect Chandler to make a huge impact on Contemporary Christian Music in 2007. We sit down with (Chandler members) of Chandler to talk about the rise to stardom, the focus on what truly matters, and how many people ask them if they’re related to Matthew Perry.

In the Jeers department, oi vey, look at this. A radio station in California has switched formats, from Christian music, sermons and Bible stories – to Porn Radio – “all sex radio, all the time,” nothing that people under 21 should not be tuned in. Ahem… ashes and sackcloth for folks in Fresno?

We at LIVEtheLIFE are doing our best to help you in your walk with Christ, which means more meaningful material, no exciting features and interviews, and more great things coming your way in August!

More interviews!
If you’re keeping track with the Contemporary Christian Music scene in the USA, you may have heard a fantastic track called Happy by upcoming CCM star Ayiesha Woods. Well, guess what? We have an exclusive interview with Ayiesha Woods! Praise God! Happy is scheduled for airplay adds on the secular stations here starting August, so it’s perfect timing, really. Happy is now#17 on Radio&Records’ Christian National Airplay chart. [You can listen to it in full on Ayiesha’s MySpace page.
If you scroll down a little lower, you’ll find the only new entry is a track called Our God Reigns by an inspiring young musician named Brandon Heath. Our God Reigns has that anthemic style that’s totally off the hook. Well, we’re proud to tell you that we have an exclusive interview with Brandon too! Isn’t God totally awesome?! Turns out a kababayan of ours played a very important role in his life. More on that in August, we promise! [Swing by Brandon’s MySpage page, too, to hear Our God Reigns!]
If that’s not enough to tickle your tailfeathers, we’re also lining up nice email interviews with other Philippine celebrities and musicians, but since those are still in the works, we’re not announcing anything formal just yet.

If you are a Christian and are doing great things for Jesus, we want to know about it! Send us an email through superblessed at, and we’ll see what we can do!

More features!

The body of Christ is doing great things to bring the Good News to people like you, all across the nation. So expect more features on what churches are doing, what youth groups are doing, what musicians and artists are doing, all to bring glory to God’s name. So drop by regularly for a great dose of Christian material to help you in your walk.

Help us out?

We’re calling on all Christian bloggers to help out LIVEtheLIFE by adding us to your blogroll (we’ll link you back!). If you can post a positive little entry about us on your blog, we’d also be superblessed by it. And oh, you can also be our friend on Friendster!

It is our prayer at that you continue to live that life, that best life, that Christ promises you. With His guidance, all things are possible. Believe it.

Your bro, ganns
