Colton Dixon, a name many of you more than likely heard over and over on American Idol! I have never watched American Idol! How unAmerican?!?!?! I first saw Colton on the Third Day tour last May in Carmel. I thought well, this is innovative of Third Day to bring a young kid on tour to bring the younger generation to Third Day concerts! A little known secret about my 65 year old mom, she couldn’t believe I was seeing Colton Dixon! Yup! She’s a FAN of Colton Dixon and I didn’t EVEN know of him yet! Crazy! Well, needless to say in the past 10 months, I have seen Colton Dixon 4 times! Kind of crazy for someone who had NEVER heard of him since last May! This song “You Are”, has been on my heart today. I have heard him sing it in concert and the tune is catchy, as in “You are the hope I’m singing, You are the hope I’m singing. You are! If I had no voice, if I had no tongue, I would dance for You like the rising sun. You are!”
This is from K-Love and I love watching his passion in singing the song and notice his long fingers on the piano! I can’t wait for Colton’s sophomore album to come out and for him to do a longer set on tour. Check him out!
