Columbus Discovers ApologetiX

It's always great to hear from enthusiastic fans who have just discovered ApX. Here's an email we received this week from a new fan in Ohio:
Thank you all for your faithfulness to God's work! He is soooooooo good! I can't tell you just how much I enjoy your music. I just recently discovered you on iTunes. Thanks, Sonja! We love Columbus so much that we even have one of our keyboardists, Todd Waites, stationed there. :)
Growing up, I loved to sing. I always tried to imitate the voice of the artist as well. When I became a Christian in 1984, I was a senior in high school. Finding Christian music I liked was not easy. There wasn't as much variety and NO radio availability back then—at least not where I grew up.
Eventually I found myself gravitating back towards my old music. I would often rewrite the lyrics and make them Christian. Then I would sing my lyrics instead when I played the song. I thought it was just a "me" thing out of desperation lol.
As time went on, I discovered more and more Christian music—Christian rock, Christian country, praise and worship, and even Christian hip-hop. I love them all but your music has touched me in a different way.
I'm almost 52 years old, and when I began listening to all of your music it really took me back to a beautiful place in time—my Christian youth. Through your music, I have been able to truly enjoy all of my old favorites in a NEW way!
I have laughed and cried and praised and prayed while listening to your songs. God has truly gifted you in a unique way that touches my heart deeply.
I pray for ApologetiX, that God would continue His ministry through all of you. I will donate as often as possible and I tell others about you as well. Thank you all soooooooo much for being willing vessels for our ever so loving Savior, Jesus Christ. May He be the only song our lives ever sing!
P.S. If ApologetiX ever plans to come to Columbus, I would love to know. My husband and I are now huge fans! Thanks again and God Bless you!
And speaking of ApX keyboardists in general and Todd in particular ...
