Take Action: Help Andrew Cunningham

If there is one thing that rebelutionaries are good at it, it’s supporting the efforts of their fellow rebelutionaries. Here’s a chance to do that. Watch this video.

Seriously. Georgia-based rebelutionary Andrew Cunningham needs to finish in the Top 5 (in total views) in the 104.7 The Fish Opening Act contest on YouTube. If he wins, $10,000 will go to a student-led missions organization. That’s one big reason to watch. The other is that Andrew’s song is really, really good — plus, it has a truly rebelutionary message based on a passage in Matthew 7.

Watch it and share it. Use Facebook, email, Twitter, you name it. He’s 8,000 views behind the leader, but rebelutionaries won’t let that last for long. Soli Deo gloria!

  • Wonderful song! Reminds me of the group Silers Bald.

  • Jemimah C.

    Beautiful song with a beautiful message. =)

  • Holy cow! That was an AMAZING song! What a voice too! Way to go Andrew and I hope you make it!

    Thanks for sharing

  • Somebody hand this kid a recording contract…. :)

  • Amanda Howell

    Just watched it! Hope he wins. :-)

  • what a beautiful song!! He has such a great talent and he is using to glorify God!!

  • Hey guys! After you watch the song, spread the word on Facebook and shoot emails to friends and family. =)

  • quinn

    Hope he makes his goal great song.

  • Miriam

    Ooooorrrr….You could go to Pray for Peter Helms site on Fbook and do something a bit more significant….Join up and pray!

  • That is a wonderful song!

  • Emily Scheerer

    So, I LOVE the song, and I reposted it to Facebook, and I’m totally supporting his win, but I was just wondering, is there a particular reason the Rebelution is supporting Andrew and not another contestant?

  • Miriam: Yes! We have been (and definitely do) encourage people to join the Pray for Peter Helms page and keep him and his family in their prayers. You can find that here:

    Emily: Good question! First, Andrew is a self-identified rebelutionary who has read Do Hard Things. But second, his song is really good — and we think he deserves a wider hearing! :)

  • Quinn

    Alex Harris I agree with what you were saying to Emily and he does deserve a wider hearing

  • Meg

    Being an aspiring musician myself, I feel empathy for young folks who write good music and do something with it. I’ll click on this a million times! He manages to sing well even while playing the guitar, and the lyrics are definitely rebelutionary. God bless, Andrew!

  • Amazing, beautiful, awesome, has a great meaning, and no one changed his voice so it sounds better!

  • Cool song! I hope he wins!

  • Erin

    That was a great song! Hope he wins!!!!!

  • Sarah

    What an amazing song! I sure hope he can win it! I’ll be listening to it all the time it has such a good message. I love when there are new good songs like that. God bless you, Andrew!

  • Jamie

    oh wow, he has a great voice, and his song!!! Oh my goodness wow. I needed to hear that definitly. I posted it on facebook, and I’m praying that he wins!! Thank you for sharing this guys!!

  • Elissa C.

    That song was so encouraging. I loved it!

  • Sarah Beth

    This is an amazing song. I will definately be sharing it.

  • Sarah Anderson

    I love the song…. his voice is great too!!! Hope he does well!! good luck Andrew!!!

  • Sarah Anderson

    I really hope he wins because it would be that much more ‘advertisement’ for the rebelution… i was just reading an email that sickened my stomach. It was about little known facts about Minnesota. There was one about the Mall of America:
    The Mall of America in Bloomington, Minnesota covers 9.5 million
    square feet and has enough space to hold 185,000 IDIOT TEENAGERS
    yapping away on cell phones.
    Well, at least not everyone is like this, but it still tells you that we still needs to work hard to raise the expectations.

  • Stephen Maynard

    That was great!!!! I love listening to it over and over again. I hope you win =].

  • OK EVERYONE ANOTHER REBUELUTIONARY NEEDS YOUR HELP! LEXI just posted her video and I know you guys can help her get many votes!


    A very proud Mom :-)

  • OK everyone – please help another Rebelutionary get votes. Lexi just posted her video today! I hope you will share her link

    God bless and thank you!


  • Lindsay

    Woah! Great job, Andrew! I absolutely love this song I would definately add it to my iPod if it became available.

  • Bethany

    Wow! What an awesome song, Andrew! I keep hitting the “replay” butten!

    May God bless,

  • Keeping viewing, everyone! And remember, you don’t need to listen to it all the way through to count as a view — just let it load enough to start playing. You can “view” it a lot more that way. :)

  • Hannah Leary

    Great song! God bless ; )

  • H

    It’s great! I hope he wins. You can also “view” it more by having several windows or tabs open. I had 10 going at the same time at one point. 😀

  • Meg

    I just hit ctrl “Watch this”, ctrl “Watch this”, ctrl “Watch this” until I hear ten Andrew Cunninghams talking at once, and then I do it again :D. Once again, great song. Curious: how did you find out about him? Does he have a blog or website or something?
    Soli Deo Gloria!

  • Jonathan Gross

    Well done Cunningham. Keep up the good work and may God bless you in it.

  • I keep viewing it but the view number still stays the same!

  • This is awesome, especially since we also write music! It’s great to see other musicians our age.
    Ok, I am just toooooo curious….. Alex and Brett: if you actually read the comments, I’ve got a question for you. Did you ever at any point, but most likely somewhere around eight years ago, go to the Alabama homeschool conference in Montgomery? It might’ve been somewhere in Florida though….
    If so, were you the ones up on stage in front of like 80 or more 7-10 year olds? Because the three of us (my triplet sister and brother and I) were in that crowd, and it just now dawned on us that it may have been you… but we’re not exactly sure because we were so young.
    Whoever it was, I guess they made an impression on us.
    God bless,
    Emily from Colorado

  • Emily

    I just wanted to let everybody know this. I was just on the website for this radio station and they have Andrew as unqualified to win this contest. They said they received about 30 entries from people under the age of 18 and you had to be over 18 to win. They have them all posted though in one place which is kind of a cool thing, you can watch a whole bunch of Rebelutionaries at once! This video is one of them listed. Disappointing, but its getting his name and music out to other people! Here’s the link for all of the under 18 contestants.

  • Kayla

    I loved this song! It had a great meaning and I’m telling everyone I know about it!(:

  • Meagan

    What an amazing song and such a great voice!

  • Lexi

    I love this song and it stinks that Andrew was disqualified from the contest. The same thing happened to me, but my video is in the list that emily posted. Oh well…hopefully they will do a junior contest in the future. =)

  • Brienne

    Andrew did AWESOME!! Love the song too! Did he write that himself? I hope he wins the contest! :-)

  • Alyssa

    How do you register so I can log in and stuff?

  • Great job! I’ll be praying for you.

  • Elizabeth C.

    Wow! that song really speaks to the heart! thanks so much for sharing this, i needed it.

  • Sooo, when do we know how it all went?

  • Morgan

    So who won??? I’m dying to know what the results are!!!!! Andrew did so well!!!!! I hope he wins!!!!!

  • Lissie

    So sorry that you got disqualified from the contest jsut because of your age…… your song was so amazing!!!

  • He did? WHY?! How do we know this? Too bad. :-(

    Great job, Andrew. :-)

  • You can see the contest results on on the 104.7 Celebrate Freedom page. Or you can just look it up online.

  • Jordan Whitmire

    Dude that was a great job that you did. I hope you did great! God Bless.

  • Jonathan

    Andrew is AMAZING!!! Ihope he makes it.:] I am 12 yrs old and today is my birthday, and my parents got me your book and I was so interested that I read until page 25. I love the book because I have been having some hard times with God lately. God bless you all!

  • Madeline E

    WOW!!! Andrew, I don’t even know you, but that was AMAZING!!! God has blessed you with some amazing talent!! Thank you for the song, it really impacted me :) I will be praying for you as God closes this door and opens another… keep doing Hard things!!!! :)

    oh, and Jonathan, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!

  • Emily Rose

    Can I share a few rebelutionists that I know???? Is there a good way to do that, Alex or Brett? I know several great people who are changing the world for good and are only teenagers. One is overseas in China. Another is on the homestead, but is still fighting for a good cause and is working to raise money for various charities. I’d like to share what they’re doing; I think it would encourage other Rebelutionists. Alex or Brett, any good ideas???? Let me know by posting under this comment as soon as you can. God bless! -E

  • Adrienne

    Wow! What an amazing, rebelutionary song! I love that! God bless and write more!

    Jill: I LOVED Lexi’s song! It was so pretty and she has a great voice.
