Camp Friday Night Concert with Lindsay Huggins
Friday Night at 7:00 pm in the Tabernacle
Born into a loving, nurturing Christian home, Lindsay knew the stability of a family that sang and ministered the Gospel together. Music has been a touchstone in her life for as long as she can remember. “My dad has been a musician all his life and my mom, who is a gifted singer in her own right, was my first vocal coach,” Lindsay recalls. “She encouraged me to not just sing the words, but to communicate what I was singing. She used to tell me, ‘Say your words clearly. If people can’t understand what you are saying, it doesn’t matter how pretty you sound.’”
By the time Lindsay graduated from high school there was no doubt in her mind about her future calling. She packed her bags and headed for Nashville – where she earned a degree in business with an emphasis on music industry from Trevecca Nazarene University. Lindsay had plenty of opportunity to see both the music industry and the music ministry from both sides of the microphone. She toured regularly as part of a contemporary Christian vocal ensemble with the university, then later interned and worked for country music superstar Reba McEntire.
Lindsay captures the inherent tension of each song on the project, wrapping her rich vocals around each, injecting them with warmth and charm. A self-described ‘song interpreter,’ she also has her first songwriting credit on her new album. Lindsay teamed up with long time family friend and Gospel music legend, Marcia Henry, to write “Nothing He Can’t Redeem,” a Gospel-tinged barnburner that speaks directly to the album’s theme of God’s redemption, not just of our souls, but of the situations in our lives. “Recording a song that I have written has been a big goal, and I’m thrilled with how it turned out.”
Lindsay Huggins is a multi-talented Christian recording artist who expresses her musical ideas in her own inimitable style. But ministry is more than a hit record for her. It is a calling, and a way of life. “Even with my family background, I didn’t feel confident in my own salvation,” she confesses. “I accepted Christ as my personal Savior in the living room of my home after listening to a song on my CD player. It is my prayer that my music can have that same impact on someone else who is in need of God’s love and redemption.”
