Dear Listener,

It’s been a busy year! Our audience has increased hugely – the YouTube channel now has over 12,000 Subscribers and total video views currently stands at 1.5 million! Amongst the growth though with some help from friends and family I’ve been in touch with more artists to bring you another free summer mixtape and here it is.

It’s not as long as last years, at just 11 tracks but I’d rather deliver a shorter mixtape of top quality music than fill it with anything I could get permission for!

Like last years mixtape I hope you are introduced to new artists through this compilation. I’ve come to know some of these artists really well whilst putting this together and by speaking to them throughout the year and I can honestly say there are some great people featured on this album who truly worship Christ with everything that they have to give. So, check out the poster that’s included and get in touch with the artists’ through Facebook and Twitter etc. and tell them how much you appreciate their music, knowing these guys most of them will probably even find the time to reply to you! (Then go download the rest of their work!)

Be encouraged by their music, share it with friends not just because you secretly hope they’ll become Christians through it but because it’s simply a collection of great music! Enjoy the diverse mix of genres, the different ways that people praise God and the different stories people have to tell.

My prayer this year is for this mixtape to spread further than before, to reach Christians throughout the world who need encouraging, Christians who wish there was great music for a great God, Christians who need a new song to sing and soundtrack to dance to.

A huge thanks to all the artists involved, for supporting the blog and the work I do and wanting to be part of this small but influential mixtape.

And finally thanks to you the listener for the continued support to both the blog and the artists we feature, whether it’s simply by liking a link on Facebook, sharing the blog with friends or donating money so that we can give more copies of the mixtape away. Thank you for making this possible.


In Christ,

Explained in WASHA’s own words:
“2013 was the hardest year I have ever faced, and it was almost over before any of the seeds God had planted could come to fruition. All my life I lived cloaked in an overwhelming sense of darkness. That was the norm for me. It was natural, everyday life. I thought it was something I had to adjust to and deal with as I become older. It wasn’t until I realized for myself that I didn’t have to live that way that I was able to understand. It took a personal realization from the Lord for everything to connect. That there was a light that could pierce every dark. And it was the maturity of that realization that enabled me to become set free of the bondage the enemy had on me. It was like waking up from a long dream; being uncovered after living blanketed for so long. I thoroughly believe that DEPRESSION is not a natural element of nature, but a perversion of God’s gift of love. I was at a crossroads: fall victim to the enemy’s will for my life, or overcome my lifelong struggle and claim victory over my life through the Lord. Without God’s love, I would not be alive today. We don’t have to live in darkness, because He has already overcome. And so I live as a portrait of what Christ has done in my life. this is my testimony. This is my life. This is Child.”

Lyrics:
Fell through the cracks
burnt there and back

Dark built from lungs
fate overcome

I was a child in my skin,
there is a man somewhere within.

Light floods the dark
fill, grateful heart

Yearn, thirst for love
death, overcome

I was a child in my skin,
there is man somewhere within.
