Recording artist Dawn Michele, lead singer for Grammy Award-nominated rock band FireFlight, is readying for the release of her debut full-length solo album, Surrender, scheduled for the release this fall. To help finalize the new worship album, Michele is inviting fans to participate in her journey via a campaign on PledgeMusic.
Produced by multiple Grammy-nominated and Dove Award-winning "Producer of the Year," Rusty Varenkamp, the new album also features guest vocals by Christian artist Tim Timmons on the song, "I Surrender All."
Michele says the new album has been a labor of love for her and everyone who has supported her throughout the journey. With the project now nearing completion and one of her dreams so close to becoming a reality, Michele says she wants to take this opportunity to connect personally with everyone who has come alongside to support the album's release.
"With the help of PledgeMusic, I hope to raise the funds needed to release my new worship album Surrender," Michele says. "I have designed and created by hand the elements of these packages and I am really excited to share them with you. I feel honored for them to become a part of your lives and even more honored that you would join with me in worship and ministry through your support of the release of this album."
Created by Michele, the elements of the PledgeMusic packages include hand-painted T-shirts, a hoodie, a lyric canvas set, posters, bracelets, and a denim jacket, along with a Skype session with Michele and a trip to Nashville. For more details about the campaign and how to take part in the album creation, please visit Michele's official PledgeMusic page.
Perhaps best known as the frontwoman of the acclaimed rock band FireFlight, including singing on the band's tenth No. 1 single, "I Won't Look Back," released earlier this year, as well as, "Die Free," released last month, Michele says her new worship album is an organic extension of her creative ministry.
"The world throws so [many] negative ideas, feelings and lies our way every day. Surrender is meant to inspire others to find more time and space in our lives to recognize that God is number one, and to connect with Him in worship," she encourages. "When we worship God, we line up everything that we are saying, thinking and doing to please God, and there is never a more powerful time in our lives than when these three things come into perfect alignment."
In addition to being a member of FireFlight, Michele has served on staff as a worship leader and led a women's worship ministry at Sagebrush Church in Albuquerque, N.M., before recently returning to Nashville with her family.
