Entries tagged with “Jennifer Jade Kerr”.

I’ve had a couple of articles recently published that I thought I’d share with you. The first – for the June issue of The Speculative Grammarian – is entitled “The Linguistic Big Crunch.” This “journal” proudly describes itself as the “premier scholarly journal featuring research in the neglected field of satirical linguistics.” Obviously, my article is therefore a comedic piece. If linguistic satire sounds like something you’d like to read, you can check it out here.

The second article is a feature on Canadian Christian singer Jennifer Jade Kerr for the Spring/Summer issue of The Luther Story. It recounts the story of her entrance into music ministry, and highlights her latest endeavour GirlOnStage – a program dedicated to helping young girls embrace and nurture their God-given talents in the performing arts, especially music. If you’d like to read the article, check it out here (scroll down to pages 5-6).

My friend Jennifer Jade Kerr (JJK) has just received the Saskatchewan Country Music Award (SCMA) for Country Gospel Album of the year (see the SCMA website for details). Moreover, she was further nominated for overall Album of the year. For those of you outside Saskatchewan, you might remember Jen as one of the members of the CREW Ministries team Saltwater. For those nearer the Queen City (Regina), you may recall her placing twice in the CKRM Big Country Talent Show, as well as taking the regional prize for the Radiostar National Songwriting Competition which subsequently brought her to Toronto to play during Canadian Music Week. While born and raised in Saskatchewan, Jennifer is currently living in Kelowna, BC where she is serving in youth ministry at an LCC church.

Her debut album “Somehow it Always Does” was released in September 2008. To check out her music a little more fully, to read her bio, or to order an album stop by her website. JJK will be playing a show at the Ramada Hotel and Conference Centre in Regina Tuesday night (April 28, 2009) from 8:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. Admission is by donation.
