Panama City Beach, FL (PRWEB) August 7, 2007
Christian songwriter James Moore, who is best known for "Let My Life Be Worship" -- the second all-time most popular song on the worship leader resource site ShareSong.org -- recently decided to make all his recordings available free online, accessible to anyone.
James explains, "I've decided to focus on songwriting and share the music God's given me, instead of trying to make it as a recording artist. However, I have absolutely nothing against other singers/songwriters who sell CD's/downloads, that's their livelihood!"
To alleviate the bandwidth drain on his music ministry website the songs are being hosted on his ad-free SoundClick pro page, accessible by visiting http://download.songsbyjames.com
To hear James’ simple, introspective writing style combined with infectious melodies, be sure and check out “Not My Will Lord, Only Yours” and “O Lord, Keep My Lamp Burning”. Or if you’re discouraged, your prescription could include burning “Rise and Be Free” and “Crimson Drops of Mercy” to CD, and use liberally.
In 2006 and 2007 three of James' praise and worship songs were translated into Finnish by Lea Alaja of Helsinki, Finland, and are in use there. But James' most special reward to date since becoming a serious writer was hearing from a young man named Justus in Kenya in 2005, who let James know his songs were being enjoyed in his local church and children's orphanage. "The little children like the songs," said Justus.
James established http://praiseandworship.songsbyjames.com to allow worship leaders easy access to his lyric, chord, and lead sheets (where available). His songs can be used freely in non-commercial venues (i.e., live worship services), although he does request that usage be reported to CCLI.
Contact James from his website http://MovingTowardChrist.com or by fax to (206) 279-1601 to discuss obtaining permission for any commercial use of these songs or recordings.
James is also founder of the Christian Songwriter's Network (CSN), a free ministry, community, and resource site for Christian songwriters, currently with over 2,500 members.
