Announcing Our New Album Release!

It is with great excitement that we are finally announcing the release of our latest family album,
Someone You Can Reach!

This project has been a long time in the making! We were more careful that ever with our music selection process, as we deeply desired for each song to be impactful and proclaiming the message of family values, faith in Jesus Christ, and worship to our Creator.


The title song (Someone You Can Reach) was written by our pastor and his wife and it is one of the most dynamic songs we have ever sung. When selecting a title track we were all in unison that this was the song to choose. God has already used this song to impact and challenge so many lives including ours and we are grateful for the opportunity to bring the message of this new song to the world!


As always, this album included hours upon hours of arranging and practicing, not to mention the countless hours spent in the studio and production process. We were blessed to work with some incredible professionals who added so much to this project!

Below are a few testimonials:

"I had a great time working with the Bontrager Family on their latest project. 
Great musicians, great singers, great people! Nothing beats their family harmony!"

-Trey Ivey (Producer/Arranger/Pianist for Legacy Five) 

"As a producer + engineer, I am constantly amazed at how my artists choose to put emotion and 
belief into their art. Few can make their art more than notes and words. None live their lives so
 connected with their art like the Bontrager Family Singers. I am both proud and blessed to have 
been a part of their Someone You Can Reach project and to call the Bontrager Family my 
friends and family members in Christ. Their music and the way they choose to live for Christ has 
been an inspiration and encouragement to how I should commune with God."
-Charley Hubbs (Grammy nominated engineer + producer)

"It was my pleasure to receive and review the new Bontrager Family CD, 
Someone You Can Reach. Every song is enjoyable and well done.  
The  family is made up of a husband, wife, and 10 children; and it has been  my pleasure to 
work with them and watch them grow both in ministry and in their musical ability. 
 Someone You Can Reach is a great project  from song 1 to 11 and you will 
enjoy this family's sincere ability to spread the gospel through song.  
I highly recommend this project for your personal collection.  Be looking for some big things from 
this great family."
-Jim Robinette, TS Promotions

  8. I herd the title song for the first time Sunday & enjoy the words of the song. I also think that "Cherish the Moment" is a very touching song.

  9. Hey there! I had a random question! Someone told me that y'all were major supporters of Ted Cruz. Am I right?

    ReplyDelete
  10. Jubilee,

    Yes, major supporters is the perfect description. =) We are SO excited to be involved with his campaign!

  11. Ok, so, here's my question for y'all. So, Ted Cruz is a great guy! He's got incredible ideas on how to run a country but there's one major issue here. How can you vote for him seeing as he's not a natural born citizen and the Constitution specifically says that you have to be a natural born citizen to be president...? There are all these people out there who have this idea in mind that only one parent of the person who's running has to be a natural born citizen. If Cruz does win the election then everything President Obama has done that's unconstitutional (which there is PLENTY of) will still stand. If someone who is constitutionally able to be president then if President Obama is found out about is fake identity (which, although I don't think it'll happen but it could) then everything he's done has to be dropped....Does all of that make sense??

  14. Hello Jubilee!
    Good question! A previous reader had the same concerns and my brother answered her questions and explained how Obamas situation and Ted Cruz' aren't even close to similar. Please visit the comment section in this post

    for answers!
    And if you have any further questions we would be happy to discuss; please feel free to email @ info@bontragerfamilysingers.com

    Blessings!
