Jamie Thietten's “My Chance” Featured in National Right to Life Monthly Newsletter
NASHVILLE, TN (June 2009 ) – Alturas Productions/Indie Extreme recording artist, Jaime Thietten woke up on Monday, June 1st to the news that “My Chance” had gained another #1 award. The song won the Grand Prize of $5000 and #1 position in the overall Music Finals in the fan-voted OurStage.com music competition for May 2009. “My Chance” took the top spot in the Christian/Spiritual Category which put her into the finals with all the winners in other genres from Rock to Rap, Country to Folk, Pop to Punk and every other category on the site. After 7 days of head to head competition and voting from many thousands of music fans, she went on to win the top spot and Grand Prize award. “I am so thankful for everyone who voted and I am truly humbled by the fact that “My Chance” is touching so many people” comments Thietten.
At the same time, the National Right to Life Newsletter went out to over 300,000 subscribers with a feature story on the “My Chance” music video. The response has been a consistent and powerful stream of orders for the video with comments encouraging Jaime in her mission to bring compassion and awareness for the difficult decisions women come to when considering abortion.
The single “My Chance” has been included on the Rock For Life Winter 2009 Compilation CD campaign, charted on the CRW Global AC and INSPO charts with over 100 stations across the USA and Canada playing the song since September 2008. “My Chance” added another accolade to its already growing list with the recent award for “Song of the Year” at the Momentum Awards held on March 28, 2009 in Nashville, TN.
A "pro-life" advocate, Jaime has dedicated part of her ministry to helping reduce the number of abortions. Her latest single, “My Chance”, tells the heart-wrenching story of a mother who decides to have an abortion, but later regrets her decision. An accompanying video includes interviews and information about life-saving options such as adoption.
"So many children lose their lives every day," Jaime says. "People have asked me why I would want to tackle such a controversial subject at this time in my musical career. My answer is that we can't afford to wait. Lives need to be saved now. I'm not worried about what others think."
During her 10-year singing career as a Christian AC and inspirational artist, Thietten has used her soaring soprano voice to garner radio airplay around the world, win major industry awards, and share stages with acts such as Phillips, Craig & Dean, Avalon, the Gaithers, Tree63, ZOEgirl, Michael English, the Easters, Clay Walker, Seventh-Day Slumber, and many others. Highlights of her career include the nationally televised Michael English Show, the Starkey Hearing Foundation Gala Awards honoring Goldie Hawn in Minneapolis, and the Caring Awards hosted by Val Halamandaris, president of the National Association for Home Care, and former Senator Bob Dole in Washington, D.C.
