I'm always up to discover new music for my readers to listen to. Last week, I received an email from an artist named Daniel Matthias requesting me to feature a tune he created in collaboration with fellow artist, Kuizz Shah. Let me be honest for a second. This is the first time I've received a special request to feature a song. I normally choose new music that I've found by looking through iTunes, etc. The email came as a bit of a surprise but I was pretty darn honored to be asked to do a feature. That means other people are seeing my work on this blog and it truly does mean a lot. I hope my words, here, will do the song justice.

This week, I'm featuring a duo of American Idol alums: Danny Gokey and Jordin Sparks.
The pair teamed up for a duet called "Chasing" for Gokey's new album Rise. This is Gokey's fifth studio album since his stint on the eighth season of Idol and it's coming off the heels of a GMA Dove Award win for his Christmas project, Christmas Is Here.
