Izzi Ray, daughter of Christian music veteran Crystal Lewis, is releasing a new single, “Make Much Of You,” to Christian radio today. The song, the title track and the second single from her sophomore album that was released last October, will be serviced to Christian CHR and AC-formatted stations by A-Sides Radio Promotion. Ray also released a live video of her performing the single.
“Obviously, I love this song,” Ray says. “After all, I did name my CD after it! The song says what’s in my heart and, really, what is at the core of my entire ministry. I want everything I do to make as much difference as it can for Jesus and for the Kingdom of God. I’m excited that the song is being released at radio.”
“Make Much of You” follows the first single release, “Heaven Is Your Throne,” which Ray wrote with her producer, Blaine Stark. “Heaven Is Your Throne” played on 132 radio outlets and charted at No. 1 on CRC (ChristianRadioChart.com) Weekly and No. 2 on CRC Monthly. Ray and Stark also co-wrote “Make Much Of You.”
Ray, a native of California was born into the music-industry family of Grammy-nominated and Dove Award-winning artist Crystal Lewis and music producer/record label executive Brian Ray. Growing up in a family where life frequently took place on the road, Izzi Ray became acquainted with music and touring at an early age and began playing guitar and writing songs at 11.
Her journey of faith also began at an early age, having met God personally at the age of 5. “I want to be a voice in my generation that stirs revival,” Ray says.
