The Christmas season is upon us. I love this time of year. I love hanging out with friends and family. I love watching my favorite Christmas films, which include Home Alone 1&2, Ernest Saves Christmas, Jingle All The Way, and of course…Elf. It’s just a very special time of the year.
This week, as Black Friday and Cyber Monday approach, many folks will begin the holiday season by shopping at all of their favorite stores trying to find the best deals around. I can respect that.
Well, I’ve decided to join the madness this year…but maybe not in the way you think. You see, when my album released a month ago I set out to try and get these songs into the hands of as many folks as I possibly could, and many of you jumped on board with me and have done so much to help me get the word out. Many of you have sent me personal stories of how these songs have impacted you. It is a constant reminder of why I recorded this album in the first place.
You probably know of some family members, co-workers, neighbors that need to hear these songs and the hope and message that they bring. From now until Dec. 20th, we are offering some incredible discounts on all the merchandise at the Brandon Gilliam Store. This will be a great opportunity to pick up a bulk amount of albums to give away during this holiday season (I hear they make great stocking stuffers). These deals will be while supplies last and we will run this deal all the way to Dec. 20th.
Here are some of the savings we are passing along, plus our giveaway!
1 = $10.00
10 = $80.00 (Percentage Savings of 20%)
15= $115.00 (Percentage Savings of 23%)
25= $187.50 (Percentage Savings of 25%)
35= $255.50 (Percentage Savings of 27%)
50= $350.00 (Percentage Savings of 30%)
All Shirts are $10 each
Another way to enter yourself in the giveaway is to Donate. You may already own the album but still would like support the ministry. That would be awesome and a huge blessing! Click the Donate Button Below to make your contribution!
Everyone loves giveaways right? Check this out – for every item you purchase from the Brandon Gilliam Store between now and Dec. 20th, your name will be entered into a drawing that will take place live online Dec. 20th with BG and James Bailey. We will be giving away cash prizes, gift cards, and more. You buy (1) CD or Shirt, you get your name in the drawing (1) time. You buy 35 CD’s and (3) Shirts, your name gets put in the drawing (38) times. We are very excited about this and hope you will participate with us.
My friends at Elevation Worship have released a new worship album. It is so good. Fresh new songs for the Church. I’ve had the privilege of leading at Elevation before, and over the years I’ve gotten to know more about these guys and their ministry – and I can tell you that they are the real deal and this will be one of the best purchases you can make. Please head over to Itunes and get this album today!
Next Week at this time many folks will be going crazy, shopping at all of their favorite stores trying to find the best deals. I can respect that.

So next week on Black Friday we are making it easier for you to do that. I cant give all the details yet, but we are offering some incredible discounts on all the merchandise. You will be able to buy Bulk CD’s for a super discounted price – which means you can buy, say 10 cd’s, at an incredible price and be able to give them out during the holiday season. I hope that you’ll help spread the word about this and also make plans to visit this website on Black Friday. These deals will be while supplies last and we will run this deal all the way to Dec. 20th.
On top of that, we’re doing a giveaway. We will be doing a drawing for cash prizes for all the folks who purchase items between Black Friday and Dec. 20th. For every item you purchase, your name gets put in the drawing. So, on Dec. 20th, a couple of you folks will find out that you’re getting a little cash bonus right before Christmas.
Just throwing this out there: Me and the guys (band) will most likely be playing at a Student Conference on the last Saturday of January (28th) in Asheville NC area. I’d love to book something for that Friday night and Sunday morning at a local church as well. Whether it be A Night of Worship, a CD release show, leading at your Church on Sunday morning…I just thought I’d put it out there that we’d be i the area and would love to see you! Email me if you’re interested…gilliam433@gmail.
The album has been out for almost a month now and its been incredible to hear the stories of how this album has had an impact on people’s lives. Below I’ve posted images (you can scroll through them) of some of the reviews on Itunes that folks have written. Just click on the image to enlarge it and it’ll be easier to read. I’d love to hear from you as well. Has the album had an impact on your life? Is there a particular song that has been a blessing to you? You can leave a comment on here or head over to Itunes or Amazon and leave a review there (you don’t have to buy the album from Itunes or Amazon to leave a review, just sign in to your account). Thanks!!
I cant recall the timeframe exactly, but I know it was about a couple months ago. We were beginning the first song of the day at Rivers Crossing, and over on the right (your left) side of the auditorium, somewhere in the first 5 rows stood an elderly woman. She was frail, yet had this sense of energy and dignity about her that I cant describe. The reason this stood out of the ordinary to me, is because we normally do not see elderly women sitting in the first 5 rows of our auditorium during a service. You see, we are very passionate about our worship environment at Rivers Crossing and our “sound” is very energetic and loud. Tasteful and well mixed, but loud. We hand out ear plugs at the door. Normally when I walk out during our countdown and see elderly people sitting that close, this thought pops in my head of, “oh man, this could be bad…those people might never come back after today.”
This particular lady kept coming back. And she loved the music. She gleamed with joy when we would begin our services with a big song. It was evident. Turns out she really enjoyed the music at Rivers Crossing, and I found out this week that she really enjoyed the album I just released and listened to it very often.
After about the second or third week of seeing this lady, I found out that before she began coming to Rivers Crossing w/ her relatives (who attend RC3 on a regular basis), she found out that she was dying of cancer. Maybe its worth repeating – this lady knew that her time on earth was short, the Drs had told her there is nothing more they could do and that this horrible thing called cancer would be the very thing that ended her time here on this earth.
I never had the chance to meet this lady. I regret that.
Today, Im playing/singing at this woman’s funeral. Im very honored to do this. I’ve never played at a funeral before. To be honest, they kind of weird me out a little bit. Its not my “cup of tea”. But for some reason, Im honored to be asked to play at this woman’s funeral and I didnt think twice about it when I was asked to play. I hope her passion rubs off on me today as I play some of her favorite worship tunes at her funeral. I hope that the name of Jesus gets lifted up and that people can see that death has truly lost its sting.
One more takeaway that I get from this story is a message I would like to say to all the people who whine and complain about every little thing YOU don’t like about a church or a worship service, as if their is a perfect church out there doing everything perfectly. My message is simply this, just be quiet (I wanted to say shut up but Travis, our student pastor, told me that may offend some people, so I refrained sort of). For the last month I watched an elderly woman come to our services and worship freely, right in front of our speakers and subs that were cranking out our sound at a high volume level, knowing that she was dying of cancer and that her time was short and she never complained about any of it. Next time YOU want to complain about how loud the music is, or how a Pastor doesnt teach the way YOU want him to, or how the starbucks coffee that is provided is too bold for YOU (does anyone notice a theme here?)…just stop and be quiet and think about this…Maybe its not about YOU.
My prayer today:
Jesus, would You heal us of our selfish ways. Begin with me, Lord.
We are starting to book some events for next year and would love to be considered by you to lead at your next event. Whether it be a student event, retreat, conference or an adult event, retreat, conference. Whether it be a one time event or a week long camp in the summer, we would love to join alongside you and be a part of that with you. While we can play occasionally on a Sunday Morning, most of our Sunday Mornings are dedicated to our home church, Rivers Crossing Community Church. We love being a part of the local church! As much as we love serving Rivers Crossing, we also feel called to share our music with the greater church around Cincinnati and the rest of the country. Bottom line, we are passionate about the kingdom and want to share that passion through worshiping with you, your church, or at your special event.
We have plenty of references and would be glad to send you those upon requests!
Please head over to the Contact Page and fill out the Booking Form and we’ll be in touch with you shortly.
