'Single Heart' CD compiled by ACU LYNAY students, features ACU faculty, students, alumni

For immediate release
Dec. 19, 2002

Just in time for a last-minute Christmas gift, Abilene Christian University's Center for Building Community has released a CD featuring ACU students, faculty and alumni, called "The Voice of A Single Heart."

The CD came about through student members of LYNAY - Love Your Neighbor As Yourself, a community and diversity group at ACU. Students listed their favorite songs that dealt with relationships with each other and relationship with God, said Dr. Gary McCaleb, university vice president and director of the Center for Building Community.

The songs were narrowed down to the top 14, and production began on the CD, a project that has taken close to two years to complete.

Jeannette Lipford, assistant professor emerita of voice, helped select vocalists to sing each song. Each song is recorded with only one voice singing at a time, with no background music or accompaniment.

"The idea is that if you're in a car by yourself or at home alone, you can put this on, and it gives words to your feelings, reminds you of the vitally important role of relationships," McCaleb said.

Songs such as "Amazing Grace," "Friends," "A Common Love," "How Great Thou Art," and "Listen to Our Hearts" are a part of the compilation.

Vocalists featured on the CD include Abilene businessman Val Durrington; third grader Lindsay Cranford; Sam Cook, ACU voice professor and classical soloist; James Henderson, football coach and former ACU football player; and several others.

The CD is available for $7.50 at the ACU Campus Store, Abilene Educational Supply or by calling the Center for Building Community at 915-674-2156.
