My family and I listened to TobyMac's album over the weekend and we love it!
My two favorite songs are called Backseat Driver and Lights Shine Bright. After I listened to this one, I started to look up his other albums. I first got into his music when I heard Lose My Soul. His music is so different and refreshing, he sings Christian songs, but they aren't like regular Christian songs. His music is a mix of Pop, R&B, and Rap. That's what I like about it. If you haven't heard him before I suggest you take a look at the links below and then enter the giveaway! If you have heard of him before, what are you waiting for? Enjoy!

Toby McKeehan (known professionally as TobyMac) is a husband, father, performer, songwriter, producer, and businessman. Growing up in the northern Virginia suburbs adjacent to Washington D.C. helped instill his love for rap music. While attending Liberty University during the mid 80s, Toby met Michael Tait and Kevin Max Smith and these three friends formed the Grammy winning, platinum selling group dc Talk. Toby began his solo career in 1999 with his first solo album, Momentum, releasing in 2001. Momentum has been followed by four additional studio albums, Welcome to Diverse City (2004), Portable Sounds (2007), Tonight(2010), and Eye On It (2012), along with his first live album, Alive and Transported (2008). This Is Not A Test is his 6th studio album to be released. Starting with dc Talk, and then going solo when the group disbanded, Toby still clings to such rootsy notions as hard work, persistence, patience, and – perhaps most relevant of all – the power of music, which he insists is still what keeps him going.
“It's the truth,” he says. “I still believe that a song can penetrate a heart. I believe God can use a song to open someone's mind and heart.”

TobyMac is a positive influence and has helped so many people. My husband and I came in to “Showstopper” at our wedding. He has existed throughout the ages. HE is a great influence.
