Christmastime Is Here

Christmastime Is Here

Hello friends – it’s Marshall. We’ve already had our first snows here in Chicago – there’s nothing like the ground being covered in white for the first time. It sets a scene. One that seems to welcome Advent – the anticipation of the Messiah’s birth. Our Hope realized. “God and sinners reconciled!” And with it too, the songs we’ve sung since childhood and have waited a year to sing again. I have spent the last few months preparing two new projects that many of you have helped me put together. One of them, Christmas, is finished! I think it has turned out beautifully. We are still waiting for the CDs to arrive at the house, but I wanted to make it available as a download immediately – it will be a wonderful addition to your family’s Christmas soundtrack. I can’t wait for you to hear it, and to let the message of God’s faithfulness ring in your home. Click here. Blessings and Peace – Marshall   Kickstarter backers have already received an email with a download link for the project. Thank you!...

Kickstarter Campaign A Success!

After 33 days and pledges from 277 generous supporters, the Kickstarter campaign for Marshall’s new album was completely funded! The amount raised exceeded the proposed budget by a large enough margin, that there are plans for a new Christmas project as well. From Kickstarter: “Folks, I can’t tell you how thankful and grateful I am to you. Your generosity and excitement towards this project have just overwhelmed me. I am humbled. I feel encouraged and supported – your words along the way have really bolstered me. I can’t wait to get to work on these two projects!” – Marshall Hall The main release is slated for October, while the Christmas project release date is currently being...

New Album Update

Hello Friends, Two weeks ago we started something a little unconventional. The plan was to create a new recording, but this time have it be supported by those who love the music and connect with the message. I am happy to say that we are doing very well! The new project has already met its budgeting goal, and we are continuing to press forward into funding a new Christmas project AND Hymns project with this campaign! I am so incredibly thankful to everyone for their generosity, kindness, and support – this has been a major team effort! I am humbled by the sweet messages and notes I’ve received, and I’ve made some new friends along the way too – so cool! We have 17 days to go, and we’re not slowing down. This is our opportunity to get more music out there that can change lives. If you haven’t yet pledged your support, click here to learn more about the story and heart behind the project, and to support music you believe...

I’m Recording A New Album And I Need Your Help!

Hello friends! I’m finally recording a new collection of songs, and I need YOUR help to make it a reality. I want YOU to be my record company. Yes? YES!! I’m really excited about this – not only to send some new music out into the world again, but also to be able to share the process, planning, and experience with you. If you are interested in supporting the project, or learning more about it, please check it out here. I’m launching this campaign through Kickstarter, a company that was created as a way for people to support projects they believe in. It works by YOU choosing between many different pledge amounts, each of which have different awards attached to them that I will send you. Ranging anywhere from a download of the new project, to behind the scenes videos, all the way to me coming to you and performing a concert. I will continually update what’s happening with the record on Kickstarter to keep you constantly in the know. It’s really fun, and a great way to connect to artists and music you want to support. This will be my first recording in five years, and I believe in it! I have been learning so many amazing things about grace, and how God shows Himself in the ordinary and the everyday. I can’t wait for you to hear it – let’s do this together! Click here and check out the...

Norwegian Fall Tour

Norwegian Fall Tour

I’ve developed quite a fondness for the country of Norway over the past several years, and I’m happy to say that I’m ironing out the last details for a short tour there in the fall! I’ve developed some wonderful friendships over the last several years, and many of those are with the singers of the HIM choir, under the direction of Oystein Lund Olafson. We will be hitting the road together for several dates later this year. HIM is an excellent and powerful ensemble, having performed with some of the world’s greatest pop and gospel artists, and at the Nobel Peace Prize ceremonies more than once. My good friend, Oystein, is an amazing pianist, organist, accordion player – if it’s got keys, Oystein knows his way around it. This is going to be a great series of events – I can’t wait to worship with the fine people of Norway again...

Happy Mother’s Day!

Happy Mother’s Day!

It’s Mother’s Day!! And a very fun one for the Hall family this year. We travelled together to Phoenix, AZ, to lead worship at our former church, Mountain Park Community Church. What a great time we had seeing old friends and worshiping with our extended church family – such a great place. Alice Hall, my mom, is 83 this year. She still cares for me, but more than not likes to dote on my girls these days. I’m so thankful for her. She’s been steadfast in her support of me all these years – I love my mom! I’m also thankful for Lori. She’s a great mom to our girls – a finer teacher you will not find, and a role model those sweet kids can count on. Without her, our household would surely crumble. I’m proud of the job she’s doing with our family. Hug a mom – any mom!! Happy Mother’s...

Like Coming Home

Like Coming Home

In November 2013, I responded to a call from Bill Gaither to fill in for the Gaither Vocal Band while he was finding some new members for his group. I’ve done this quite a bit over the last several years, but it was different this time. This particular weekend we were to sing at Willow Creek Community Church in Chicago. I used to attend this church – I served there. I met my wife in the halls of this place, and began to own and grow in my faith in a very palpable way while sitting under the teaching of Bill Hybels. It was a blast as usual, singing with my good buddies and reliving the memories we’d made while on the road together – I loved my time with the GVB. After the concert, I milled around backstage to say goodbye to some of the tech crew, and ran into Pastor Hybels. We chatted for quite some time – it was so great to spend a few moments and reconnect. Before he left our conversation to catch the other Bill, he took my email and said it would be great to have me visit again sometime. Well, long story short, my family and I moved to Chicago to once again be part of Willow Creek Community...

The Way Up Is The Way Down

The Way Up Is The Way Down

Is there someone in your life who inspires you? A person whom, when you reflect on their body of work, stirs something within you to strive for more? I think we all do – I know I’ve had a few. When I was younger, they were mostly musicians, sports heroes and the like – it was very connected to fame and position. But fame is fleeting and so is youth. And with the passing of one and the knowledge of the other, I find myself inspired by something else – SERVICE. A couple of weeks ago, Dr Jeremiah shared a message from Mark that helped to crystalize my thinking. “The way up is the way down,” he said. He was speaking of the instance where two of the apostles wished to sit at the left and the right of Jesus. They were each seeking position – the same thing to which I ascribed importance when I was a kid. I felt in pretty good company with the apostles:) The thing is, that it doesn’t last – and Jesus isn’t into what doesn’t last. Jesus is into the eternal. Whether we proclaim Jesus as Christ or not, the TRUTH is the truth – he who would be last will be first, and he who would be first will be last. Eternal. Becoming a servant takes something very special – something that must be honed through practice. It’s much more difficult a skill to master than a three-point shot, and infinitely harder to hold onto than fame – SELFLESSNESS. That word almost frightens me if I’m honest. Because I tend to replace it with other great words, like generosity and kindness, but that’s not what it means. It’s summed up in the commandment that reads, “love your neighbor as yourself.” Say that a few times to yourself. Let it sink in. Love your neighbor as much as you love yourself. Look out for your neighbor’s interests as much as you do your own. Look to your neighbor’s keeping as much as you do your own. We look after our every care – no person loves Marshall Hall more than I do – and we are to love our fellow man in the same regard. This is a lot to swallow – I by no means have it taken care of. Far from it. But if Christ made anything clear while He...
