Dove Award winner Cheri Keaggy recently returned from a whirlwind road trip to promote her current CD, So I Can Tell, that included performing with guitar virtuoso Phil Keaggy in concert and being interviewed at LeSea Broadcasting's flagship program, The Harvest Show, and at Moody Radio in Chicago, where the singer/songwriter was a guest onMidday Connection, Faith On Record and Chris Fabry LIVE!
The busy trek began when Cheri Keaggy shared the bill with Phil Keaggy at a concert at Bluff Creek Christian Church in the Indianapolis suburb of Greenwood, Ind., where Cheri Keaggy's father, Mike Anderson, made a surprise onstage visit.
"Dad was visiting from California, so I drug him along with me for my road trip," Cheri Keaggy says. "I was privileged to open for Phil Keaggy. I did a few ad libs with Phil on 'Noah's Song' and even joined in on the chorus of 'What A Day.' He graciously played along on 'Romans 15:13 (The Benediction Song).'
Such a treat! And as an added bonus, I seized the opportunity to invite my Dad onto the platform to play a tune on the accordion. A willing participant, he nearly stole the show. The crowd let him know it through a standing ovation. I can't take him anywhere!"
Cheri Keaggy spent the next several days sharing her music and story on the air, first traveling to LeSea Broadcasting in South Bend, Ind., to appear live onThe Harvest Show, then to Moody Radio in Chicago.
"It was good to visit LeSea Broadcasting," Keaggy says. "What a group of professionals! I sang two songs, one at the piano and one to track. The hosts,Stefan Radelich and Valerie Lowe, made the interview segment a breeze. As we wrapped, they invited me to speak directly into the camera and encourage viewers all over the world. What a privilege!"
"What a blessing it was to be back at Moody again. Everyone was joyful and passionate...and it was great to reminisce about the days of old and also share what God is doing now," Keaggy says. "I got to encourage callers who phoned in during Chris Fabry LIVE! My Dad was with me and they even brought us some Giordano's pizza. A good time a
nd great connections all the way around. I feel proud to be a part of such a long standing legacy of Christian programming going out over the airwaves year after year. To God be the glory!"
Keaggy currently is enjoying radio success with "There Will Be One Day," the current single from So I Can Tell. The song, penned by Keaggy, sits at No. 11 onChristian Music Weekly's
INSPO chart and at No. 13on Billboard's Christian Soft AC/INSPO chart.
