1211 is a collection of artists, songwriters, and performers that God brought together who share a love for music and a past of brokenness.
Spirit Radio 105.9FM kindly invited 1211 to be a part of their Christmas Compilation CD this year, alongside Amy Grant, Mercy Me, and many others. We decided we wanted to share the invitation with our friends, so we chose “It Came Upon A Midnight Clear” and recorded it 1211 style, with 1211 and these awesome friends:
- Eddie Willis from Austin Ridge Church
- Lamar Stockton from Austin New Church
- Laura Miles from One Chapel
- Jake Holcomb from Gateway Church & Singer for Rikavista
- Brian Batch from Alpha Rev
- Texas artists Jenna Paulette and Ryan Beaver
- Clayton Corn from Pat Greens band
- Milo Deering (Country Studio Legend)
- Sean Moffitt (mixer: Chris Tomlin, Matt Maher, Mandisa)
- Jason Johnson from Austin Christian Fellowship
- Jacob Hildebrand from Gateway Community Church
- Texas/ Nashville artist Lainey Wright
We all came together for a incredible version of this Christmas classic, it is one of our coolest productions to-date, not just musically, but relationally! We loved the unity of all these talented folks singing as one voice together for the celebration of the birth of Jesus. What a killer birthday gift to be a part of!
