Despite getting my heart broken every season when my favorite contestant doesn't win, I still tune in to check out the talent. And this year my favorite hands down was Angie Miller.
I actually first heard about her from a friend of mine who is from her hometown. Angie was a student at the school my friend teaches at and Angie's dad was a pastor at her church. So my eyes were on the lookout for Angie from the start. The moment I heard her sing, "You Set Me Free," I wanted her to win. It was an original song she wrote from one of the Psalms. She continued to be a light on the show by singing Colton Dixon's song, "Never Gone" and Kari Jobe's "Love Came Down." I just LOVE seeing the Lord shine through someone on national television. And Angie did that.
I know it's been awhile since I've covered a song for Music Monday, but when a sweet girl requested on Twitter that I sing "You Set Me Free" I was up for the challenge! And a challenge it definitely was. I had to lower the key a half step (GIRLFRIEND CAN SING HIGH!) and play guitar instead of piano... but I hope you enjoy it. And most of all, I hope if you haven't heard of this talented girl before - that you will check out her single on iTunes! She deserves all the support.
Of course, she should have won AI this year... but third place isn't too shabby. ;)
