Aurora review available soon!

Aurora albumDid you know that a Christian pop group composed of three sisters did exist a few years before BarlowGirl’s eponymous album was released? Yes, it was the group Aurora, who released two albums (the first in 2000 being eponymous and the second in 2001 being titled Bigger than Us) with Red Hill Records until its operations ceased in 2001. It’s the same record label that published the album Katy Hudson, which had less than 200 physical copies published. Therefore, I am led to believe that the Aurora album Aurora is also with rare availability. However, at the thrift store, I found a copy of the latter and I did not miss the opportunity to buy it! A review will soon be published.

In February 2014, she was rocking out to “Locked Out of Heaven” by the perverted Bruno “Mars”. What kind of message does that send about how seriously one takes salvation in Christ? A very worrisome message, there’s no doubt about it.
