OPENLY GAY CHRISTIAN SINGER FOCUSES ON SCRIPTURE WITH NEW CD RELEASE

It's been a decade since Shawn Thomas released his first Christian CD/album. "Fortunately, I had already come out by that time in my life. I've always been grateful that I didn't try to start in Christian music first and THEN come out -- so many tough and heartbreaking stories from those who've traveled that road. I'm glad it worked out the other way around." says Thomas.

A four-time Pride in the Arts Awards recipient from The Stonewall Society and fourteen-time nominee, Shawn Thomas' newest musical effort is a praise and worship collection of original songs called, "Voice of Worship." The lyrics for each song on the project are based on one or more texts from Old and New Testament scripture. He explains, "In the past few years there've been a few choices I've made in expressing myself a little more openly that have brought on a bit of (for lack of a better word) 'controversy' to what I was doing -- whether it be from the Christian community or the GLBT community. I realized as a result, focus was being taken away from the grace message that is what I truly hope to be able share; So, I thought for this project, why not go directly to scripture and let that be the lyric and completely take my 'voice' out of it."

The first single from "Voice of Worship" is lyrically based on Psalm 62 and Psalm 46 and is titled, "I Will Not Be Moved (Selah)." "Selah" is a word that appears in the Psalms and, although there's some debate about its meaning, it very loosely means, "Hey, did you hear what I just said? That was important! I meant that!" In this case: "God alone is my rock and my salvation...I will not be moved! Trust in God at all times...pour out your heart before him. Selah!"

The CD, "Voice of Worship" is also available in digital format on iTunes, Amazon, and other outlets. The first single is available as a free download and the CD can be purchased as well by visiting www.shawnthomasonline.com.
