name is Paola Maschio, the wife of Roberto Bignoli, a singer
songwriter who has been and is inspired by the message of Christ.
For several years now I have been working on the spreading of
information relating to Christian music across the internet,
because I vehemently believe in evangelisation, even through music
and also because there is currently no other information source
fact is, that living Roberto’s and other singer-songwriters’
experiences in person I can honestly say that I am convinced of
the benefits that exist in offering one’s art to bear witness
that God exists in this day and age when so many are trying at all
costs to deny His very existence.
is the commitment that springs from the desire to give voice
to and to promote Christian music. It is a commitment that takes
up a lot of my time and asks me to sacrifice a great deal. But my
sole desire is to help Christian artists so that they do not feel
abandoned and lone, and to stimulate them to go on despite the
multitude of obstacles that they encounter in the world of music
where more often than not one is one’s own producer and manager.
The result is that this ends up requiring a great deal of effort
and it is right and proper therefore that someone compensates them
for their efforts. As the saying goes “one thing leads to
my view the opportunities in the Catholic world today to organise
concerts, town square events, festivals with Christian artists are
many. Often however, both out of fear or because it is more
important to hear people say…. “Do you know who came and
performed where we live…. he’s famous” one hides behind the
facade of traditional shows.
can I offer? Artists’ biographies; record reviews; photos, the
possibility of helping with the organising of concerts with one or
more artists; contacts with the Catholic and secular press; the
handling of press reviews, and
a whole lot more!!!!!
