Greg’s note: Today for Music Monday we’re profiling Kristi Northup. I don’t know much about this young lady other than what I’ve read on her website and the fact that she performed at my church yesterday and her music was simply amazing. I picked up her latest cd in the lobby after church  and it hasn’t left my cd player yet. She offers her latest cd as a download for a donation of any amount or for free if you like. I was taken aback a little when I pulled out my debit card to pay for her cd and the woman behind the table asked me how much I wanted to pay. Upon seeing the confused look on my face she explained that Kristi doesn’t sell her cds, but gives them away in return for a donation of any amount. Being on a budget, I paid twelve bucks, which I think is a fair price for a new cd. It’s called You See Beauty, and the title song just blew me away.  Kristi, if you read this, I hope you’ll come back to my church and perform again. In the meantime I’ll be looking out for your next cd. The link to download Kristi’s cd is on her homepage. Enjoy!



Personal Bio: 

So, a little bit about me… I love to be in the presence of God; I don’t care if I’m with thousands of people or alone with a guitar. Altar ministry is my favorite. I totally believe that God wants to show Himself through the supernatural and use us to bring His power, love, and justice to people everywhere. I always try to write songs that are the prayers of people’s hearts.  I want to just be honest about what I’m going through, or what I see others going through, as I struggle to reconcile the warring inside of me. I love diversity of thought, ethnicity, and experience. I love to lead people to Jesus.

I grew up in a Christian home, but wholeheartedly gave my life to Christ when I was 16. Right after that, my family and I moved from Minnesota to the country of Chile to become missionaries. Living in another culture, learning another language, and seeing the reality of poverty in my own friends’ lives deeply affected the way I see the world, even today. It really opened my eyes in the most fantastic way to the fact that there’s a whole world out there beyond my own.
