We have a friend of the blog (or, a FOTB) named Michelle Tumes. Shelley and her hubby Doug, while they do not participate in the blog itself, are members by proxy, because I say so.
Shelley has had a very successful career in CCM over the years. She was named Christian songwriter of the year in 2001 by ASCAP. It’s a significant achievement, in that the award is given to the writer with the most spins on Christian radio that year.
I was chatting with Doug online yesterday, and he mentioned that she had a large following in Asia, and then he casually suggested that I run a search for Michelle Tumes on You Tube.
P.S. This may be amusing only to those of us who know Shelley and Doug, so I apologize in advance if you find yourself scratching your head.
P.P.S. If you happen to ever meet Shelley or Doug, suggesting that she sounds like Enya will get you a polite (as she’s Aussie and all) ass beating.
