Heart of Adoption 10 Song Album Released! Subscribe To My News (RSS)(Click this icon to Subscribe)

Although the official release is not until Oct. 25th, all ten songs of the long-awaited "Heart of Adoption" album are ONLINE right here (and exclusively, at this point) on Indie Heaven! Giving voice to the fatherless, the orphan, the foster child, and hopefully helping to enlist thousands of new foster and adoptive families, these 10 songs will take you on a wild ride of hope, tears, laughter, and FAITH. Produced by Robert Jason (Brentwood, TN) and recorded at Fox Mountain Productions (Brad Vosburg), the album is an eclectic mix of inspirational, rock, R & B (with 12-year-old EJ Avery performing "Who's My Daddy"), country (brand new recording of "Child of My Heart" with Tommy Brandt & Becky), and the heart-gripping song of the birth mother who relinquishes her baby, "I Gave You Away". Songs of faith, hope, and divine intervention, including "Entertaining Angels, Unaware" (from the book of Hebrews) are certain to inspire!

Two singles were simultaneously released to approximately 1700 Christian radio stations on Oct. 4th by Christian Radio Weekly/ Westar Media. "The Forgotten", co-written by Becky and Sean C. Smith, is a driving and passionate rock rendition of the reminder to "remember... the least of these" in the name of Christ. The famed Bonnie Keen (of the CCM group First Call) joins Becky on the hopeful "What Love Will Do".

Dave Koch, President of Westar Media Inc., said, "Becky Wright's life story is one of extraordinary faithfulness to God in the midst of pain and suffering. Her passion and ministry to orphans, foster parenting and adoption are evident in two powerful songs titled "The Forgotten" and "What Love Will Do." Her music will resonate with fans of Steven Curtis Chapman, Natalie Grant, Casting Crowns and similar artists. This November, I encourage radio stations all across the U.S. to feature these two songs during "National Adoption Month."

Hard copy CD's will be available online approximately Oct. 28th. Downloads are available NOW at Indie Heaven, and at www.beckywrightsongs.com

Adoption Singer Adopts Two Children, Nominated for Two Awards

Oklahoma "Adoption Songwriter", Becky Wright, Adopts Two Children from West Virginia,
Up for Female Vocalist and Female Songwriter of the Year

Tahlequah, OK, February 2, 2009: Becky Wright, award-winning singer/songwriter and recording artist from Oklahoma, never imagined having nine children. With a blended family of "his, mine, and ours" and only "ours" still at home, this songwriter mom and former music teacher has been traveling the country the last three years with her music career. The summer of 2008 took her, with husband and kids in tow, through a 14-state concert tour throughout the east and northeastern USA. The family took a detour to visit Washington, D.C., and made it as far as Maine, where Wright performed at a festival, along with Grammy-nominated Margaret Becker, a fellow Christian artist/songwriter. Becky Wright, formerly a school teacher, taught songwriting workshops and gave concerts in seven states. On the trek home, the family passed through West Virginia, where they stopped to visit Becky's young cousin, Jeffery (age 9). He lived with his grandmother and little (half) sister, Jacie, about an hour from Charleston, and was happy to meet and play with the Wright's youngest two children. Five months later in November, the Wright family received a phone call from West Virginia that would change their lives forever: Jeffery and Jacie's grandmother had passed away, and the children, legal orphans, needed an adoptive home. Now, more than ever, the "adoption songs" that Becky writes and records were hitting very close to home.

Becky Wright is currently in the Top 10 for two music awards this year, "Female Vocalist of the Year" and "Female Songwriter of the Year", which she won in the 2008 Agape Fest . Fans may VOTE for Becky and other nominees at http://www.kingcountryagapefest.com/ , and winners will be announced at the Agape Fest Awards Show in Jefferson, TX on June 13th. Wright also won the title of "Duo of the Year" at the 2006 Texas-based Christian music festival, with the first "adoption song" she wrote, "Child of My Heart" (recorded with 3-time Male Vocalist of the Year, and 2004 CCMA New Artist of the Year, Tommy Brandt). The song began a whirlwind of performances nationwide, radio airplay worldwide (over 600 stations), and a frenzy of more songwriting. In 2006, Wright landed a record deal with North Carolina & Nashville-based Lamon Records, and recorded an inspirational Christian album, "No Denying". In August of 2008, Wright began recording a new upcoming album called "The Heart of Adoption", with renowned Nashville producer, Robert Jason, whose credits include Reba McEntire, Oak Ridge Boys, Disney, and others. Funding is still needed to complete the album, which will benefit adoption, foster parenting, and pro-life organizations across the USA. (Becky Wright is a Dept. of Artists in Christian Testimony, Intl. out of Brentwood, TN, a Non-Profit 501 C3. All gifts are tax-deductible.)

The first single released to radio in Oct. 2008, "Call Me Loved", is sweeping radio airwaves across the USA and internationally, mostly on Christian radio. Released simultaneously with Christian Radio Weekly and Hope Street Music Group, the song highlights "the cry of the orphan, the foster child, the forgotten child... every child", and challenges listeners to consider the most fragile and deserving-- our children. Radio stations may contact Christian Radio Weekly to preview or download the song. Listen or download also at www.beckywrightsongs.com/music.htm.

The Wright's wish to applaud the combined efforts of the Oklahoma SWIFT Adoption program, Heritage Family Services (Tulsa), and those of the State of West Virginia, through the ICPC (Interstate Compact on the Placement of Children) program, who are handling the case. Their goal is to give thousands of waiting children the permanent, "forever families" they need and deserve. Becky Wright is honored to perform every year for the State of Oklahoma's Adoption Celebration in Oklahoma City, and plans to bring her newly adopted children to the celebration with her in November. Dr. Howard Hendrick, Director of Oklahoma Dept. of Human Services and former OK State Senator, states: "Becky Wright's music inspires passion for children especially children who are placed in the hearts of the adoptive parents who choose them. Her confidence in God's desire for a healthy family for all children is exciting." Several adoption and concert events are planned on Becky's 2009 tour, including the Arizona Heart Gallery (Tucson), Act of Life (Houston), Agape Fest, ATTACH (San Antonio), and others. Contact info@beckywrightsongs.com for more information or to schedule a concert, interview, or speaking engagement. ###

Downloads of "Call Me Loved" are available now, and sold exclusively through Indie Heaven.com, the premier site for Independent Christian artists & musicians.

He described "inspirational" as being songs that "really have a message that touches people". "Call Me Loved" is not just the new "National Adoption Month song", or the "orphan's song", or that of the abused or neglected child... it is EVERYONE'S song and heart cry-- to be loved and cherished, to BELONG.

Billy's Train- Singing News Chart - FIRST time! Subscribe To My News (RSS)(Click this icon to Subscribe)

Lamon Records announced that "Billy's Train", the 2nd single from Becky Wright's 2006 release, "No Denying", made Becky's debut at #106 on the Singing News Chart, the premiere music chart for southern gospel music. Predominantly an inspirational & contemporary artist, "Billy's Train" has ironically been compared to Alison Kraus and early Dolly Parton-- a definite folky-country sound. It's no wonder, though, since the song began in a dream, only days before her final song selections for the album.

RADIO REPORT: Billy's Train had the #2 Most Adds on the Aug. 29th Christian Music Weekly chart, after a rave review from DJ and Review Columnist (in Christian country), Jon Clarke. Released on Lamon Radio Hits #15 in July, the song has been picked up by stations worldwide already. Following a very successful radio life for "While It is Day" (the first single release), and the 2005 single success of the adoption song, "Child of My Heart", "Billy's Train", although breaking some "genre- rules", is breaking into HEARTS and lives through the powerful lyrics and the Spirit of God.
