Word recording artist Erin O’Donnell will join
7-time Dove Award nominee Mark Schultz as special guest on his 2001 fall
tour, which also features new Word singer/songwriter Ben Glover. The tour
is slated to visit approximately 30 cities during October and November,
including Chicago, Grand Rapids, Atlanta, Nashville and Dallas.
O’Donnell released her third album, No Place So Far, in March, while the
title cut from the project became a top-five hit at Christian radio. She
also performed the hit song, which she co-wrote with husband Brad, during
the Dove Awards pre-telecast in late April.
In the coming weeks, Erin O’Donnell will appear at California’s Crystal
Cathedral to perform “No Place So Far” on “The Hour of Power” with Dr.
Robert Schuller, slated for broadcast across the U.S. on July 8, 2001.
Having just signed on with Compassion International as an artist
representative, Erin O’Donnell traveled to Peru in early 2001 to learn more
about the work of this child-sponsorship organization.
A new mom, of 15-month-old daughter Quinn, O’Donnell is passionate about the
efforts of Compassion to help children around the world. “Before I agreed
to represent Compassion International, I wanted to see first-hand what they
are doing,” says Erin. “I was touched by the needs of these children, and
impressed by what Compassion is able to do to make a difference in their
lives. Brad and I sponsor a child, but having Quinn made us look at it
differently. If we were in the place of these needy families, I would want
someone to reach out to help my child.”
Currently airing on Christian radio stations nationwide, “Hold On To Jesus”
is O’Donnell’s latest single from No Place So Far, written by Brad O’Donnell
for baby Quinn prior to her birth. Erin O’Donnell is also slated to perform
in 2002 at the national convention of MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers).
