I hope that this mixtape exposes you to some new music - that you may discover musicians and bands you perhaps had not previously heard. If so, I encourage you to look up the artists' other music - use this mixtape as a springboard for hearing more music.
I also hope that this mixtape shows you just how diverse Christian music is - just like the body of Christ which has created it. If there are genres on here that you wouldn't usually listen to, don't just skip past them, try hearing something new! I believe that each genre serves different purposes, thereby meaning that no one genre is necessarily better than another, but each has their own perks.
My prayer is that as you enjoy the music you would pass it to friends, family, colleagues, fellow church goers etc. Please pass it on, these artists work hard and their music deserves to be heard, enjoyed and supported by more Christians.
However, having said that, this music also needs to be shared with people who don't know Christ. It's got a great message and the world needs to hear it, so don't be afraid to play it loud, and share it with those people you'd rather hide it from.
Also a massive thank you to all the artists that agreed to have their music given away for absolutely no cost. Please could you, as a listener, thank them with a purchase, a tweet, a like etc. and let them know it's appreciated by you fans!
Finally, this is a SUMMER mixtape - this will be the soundtrack to my summer and I hope it becomes yours also. Thanks for listening, downloading, and supporting the blog and the artists involved.
