Discovery House Music Releases Fourth Project from Shannon Wexelberg
(Nashville, TN) – Discovery House Music will release the fourth solo recording from singer/songwriter Shannon Wexelberg on March 16, 2010. The CD entitled I Have A Song is an enhanced CD that features printable PDF files of each of the eleven songs, making it easier for church bands and choir directors to incorporate the music into their worship services. Additionally, the “Day of Discovery” television show will be filming a special with Wexelberg at the end of April to be broadcast at a later date. The “Day of Discovery” broadcast is now in its 41st season and currently airs every Sunday morning on the ION television network, satellite tv, and dozens of independent stations in the U.S. and Canada.
Wexelberg has written or performed several top 10 national radio singles in the course of her career. The first single from the new CD will be the title cut which Wexelberg says was inspired by an obscure prophet in the Bible.
“The title song was actually inspired by the third chapter of the book of Habakkuk,” says Shannon. “I have an idea of how Habakkuk felt in those verses. Less than a year ago, our lives were in utter turmoil –from jobs, to where we were going to live, to the direction of our future. In the natural I had every reason to be sad, disappointed, frustrated and discouraged.”
Wexelberg and her husband thought they had come to the end of the most difficult trials in their lives. After many years of infertility and desperately wanting to be parents, the Wexelbergs adopted their son Christian in 2005. Their family finally felt complete and the couple began a new season in their lives as the parents of an active little boy. Then, in March of last year, Wexelberg’s husband Mark was out for a Sunday motorcycle ride when a girl in a truck ran a stop sign and collided head-on with Mark’s bike. The impact broke 23 bones in his body and required three surgeries to place metal rods, screws and plates in his femurs, pelvis, ankle and knee -procedures that literally put him back together again. While the doctors have been encouraged by his year-long progress, Mark still has a long way to go in the healing process.
Wexelberg penned nine of the eleven songs on the I Have A Song CD, which also includes well-known hymns “‘Tis So Sweet to Trust in Jesus” and “Praise to the Lord the Almighty.” Along with her solo projects, Wexelberg has worked with other ministries and organizations including the Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir, Scott Krippayne, Paul Baloche, Ross Parsley, Kim Hill, Maranatha! Music, Integrity Music, The Desperation Band, LifeWay Worship, and PBS, among many others.
