Brooke Fraser's "Albertine" CT's No.1 album

I was browsing through Christianity Today's Top 12 Christian albums for 2008, and to  my surprise and delight, Brooke Fraser's Albertine was No.1!! 

As the article stated, Albertine has been available in Australia and New Zealand  for a couple of years now, but it was only released in the U.S. this year.

I'm so happy for her. . . and so proud! For we Aussies have of course adopted Brooke as our own, just as we do any good thing to come out of New Zealand. . . :P! LOL - how do you Kiwis put up with us?

Anyway, as I was saying, Albertine is a brilliant folk-pop album, and Brooke is a tremendously talented artist - not to mention a wonderful person. She has her heart in the right place. . . read the story behind the title track of Albertine and it will make you cry. . . 


Congratulations, Brooke! You thoroughly deserve every accolade that comes your way. :-) And well done Christianity Today for having the sense to put Albertine at #1! 


Current Mood:  Happy.

Hello there! I'm guitargirl and I found you via Mada's blog. They play that Brooke Fraser song "Shadowfeet" here in the U.S. it's a great song. I still think the best singers Australia gave us has to be Rebecca St. James and the Newsboys though ;) So, thanx. LOL!
Your pictures are pretty.

;) Thanks, guitargirl!

Well, RSJ and newsboys are both veterans of the music industry - newsboys have been around for over 20 years! - whereas Brooke is really only at the beginning of her career, certainly in the U.S. market, anyway. So it will be interesting to see where she is 5-10 years from now. . .
