Nov. 21, 2006 – Nashville, TN – Fourteen year-old thinkaboutit records recording artist Robert Pierre recently kicked off the release week of his debut album, Inside Out, with a special concert event, “Inside Out Orlando,” at the House of Blues. Performing with a live band, Pierre introduced songs from Inside Out to over 1,100 attendees at the event, which was open to the public. Emceed by Christ in Youth “Believe Tour” director Johnny Scott, the event also featured well-known youth speaker Justin Lookadoo.
“I’m so grateful that God gave me the opportunity to sing at the House of Blues,” Pierre says. “It was an awesome day for me and so cool to hear all the kids there worshiping God!”
In the months leading up to his album release, Pierre has been introducing tweens and their parents to his music through events like Rock the Universe, held at Universal Studios Florida® theme park in Orlando, and the Christ in Youth “Believe Tour,” which hits ten markets throughout its October 2006-April 2007 run. His interactive website further acquaints visitors with the teen artist by offering a preview of Inside Out, through a flash audio jukebox player, and downloads of buddy icons, banners, avatars and screensavers.
With a passionate voice and a message of hope, Robert Pierre connects to both his peers and their parents, filling the recent void in the tween market. His album, Inside Out, touches on themes of God’s love, walking by faith and the difference one person can make, as well as tackling the timely discussion of evolution vs. the case for a Creator. Produced by Robert White Johnson (Celine Dion, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Van Zant), The Stitts Brothers (Chris Tomlin, Al Green) and Dove Award-winning singer/songwriter Al Denson, Inside Out reflects a young man with a strong desire to develop a music ministry to youth and music lovers alike.
