O Holy Night
Don Shortslef grew up in a home filled with music. He began singing and playing the piano at a young age. When Don was just 15 he gave his heart to the Lord and knew then that someday he wanted to use music to help spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ. For twelve years, with his brother Dennis, Don ministered in music to a variety of Christian Churches across the country. Each of the brothers received a number of Christian Country Music awards and both were featured on the International Christian Satellite TV Program, 3ABN Presents (Three Angels Broadcasting Network). In 1998, Don was named National Male Vocalist of the Year by the Country Gospel Music Association (CGMA). Don can currently be heard on Christian Radio programs across the U.S. and Canada. Recently, Don has ventured out on his own. His latest CD, "When I Sing For Him", is a compilation of some of the old country gospel favorites that influenced his musical style and inspired his love for the Lord. The album also features his dad, (Harold 'Chub' Shortslef) on the pedal steel guitar. To date, Don has recorded five CD albums-three of which were recorded with his brother, Dennis, who wrote most of the songs. Several of these songs (including "Freddy' and 'Two Gardens') reached the top 20 on Christian Country Radio nationwide. Don's musical style includes a blend of Christian Country, Country Gospel and Contemporary Christian. In addition to his newest release, "When I Sing For Him", his solo CDs also include the 2005 Christmas Album, "O Holy Night".
