Grammy-nominated artist Jeremy Camp has made a name for himself in the Christian music scene with his infectious worship songs and contemporary anthems, but the 37-year-old might have to move over and make way for his young daughters who have now released their first single.
Camp recently received his 38th No. 1 radio single across all radio formats with "Same Power," but the father of 3 may have to hand over his musical crown because his daughters Bella (11) and Aerie (9) have released their debut single. The tune is a Christmas song named "Behold." It was penned by a then 10-year-old Bella.
In a very charming video posted on Vimeo, the audience is given an inside look into the recording of the song in which Camp and his entire family partake in. With Bella and Aerie singing lead, Camp and his wife, Adrienne, are heard and seen singing background vocals. Camp's youngest son Egan was not excluded in the family affair as he had the honor of ending the song by singing the chorus solo. more >>

Depending on how you look at it, Jim Bob Duggar may be one of the least expected people to offer parental advice, given his son's recent scandalous fall from grace. Then again, perhaps Jim Bob's experiences make him one of the best qualified to speak on family matters.
However you choose to see it, when it comes to being a father and raising a family, Jim Bob has got a few suggestions. In the aftermath of Josh's molestation and cheating scandals, which rocked the entire Duggar clan — causing the cancellation of the family's reality show "19 Kids and Counting" — Jim Bob posted an open letter on the family's website suggesting that in order to safeguard one's family from sources of temptation, removing all "worldly or sensual content" from the home is the best course of action.
Duggar suggests that risque content be replaced with "good things," including "wholesome music, biographies of great Christians, good old-fashioned family fun and games." He also advises on how to be the family's spiritual leader and coach. more >>
