Music. I cannot imagine life without it. In our family of seven, our tastes in music run the gamut from Classical Rock to Christian. At home, or on the go, we are constantly listening to one thing or another. Having 5 children, 3 of them being teens, I am always on the lookout for inspiring Christian groups for them to listen to. When I was offered the opportunity to review the debut album from 1 Girl Nation, I jumped at the chance. I thought it might be a perfect fit for my 14 and 16 year old daughters.
About 1 Girl Nation:
"Landing in the space where One Direction meets TobyMac, 1 Girl Nation is an exciting blend of upbeat pop music, with lyrics that are totally focused on living life for God, even while you’re young. 1GN, as they’ve already been dubbed, stars Carmen, Kayli, Kelsey, Lauryn Taylor and Lindsey, five girls with a passion for telling their fans about Christ through their music. Their first single, “While We’re Young,” can be heard on radio stations across the country and their self-titled debut album is available now!
Primary Audience: preteens, teens, and young adults (as well as parents, too!)"

What we thought:
After listening to the CD, my 14 year old added the album to her iPod. Her favorite is track 3, "Live For You" with the exception of the rapping. She's not a big fan of rap (neither am I). We loved the upbeat, pop-style songs with the Christian messages.
My 16 year old didn't care for the CD at all as she didn't like how mainstream they look and sound.
All in all, I think this is a fun CD, perfect for tweens and early teens. The songs messages paired with upbeat music provide positive affirmations that are sure to help young woman make it through the tough times and to remind them that they are made in HIS image and are meant to let their light shine bright!
