One Song at a Time, Jamie Grace
Kids are loving singing along to Jamie Grace’s debut single, “Hold Me,” on the radio. Jamie already has the stamp of approval from her pal TobyMac, so chances are her full album, One Song at a Time (Gotee, releasing September 20), is guaranteed to be one kids will enjoy. http://www.jamie-grace.com
