I just saw this announcement in my Facebook notifications. One of my favorite sites for getting to sample some free Christian music MP3’s is being acquired.
(NASHVILLE) June 2, 2008â€”Digital media company Spinnaker Media LLC is acquiring the assets of HearItFirst.com â€“ the digital Christian music discovery website â€“ from EMI Christian Music Group (EMI CMG); the company that created and developed the site. As part of Spinnaker, HearItFirst.com will operate as a stand-alone, independent digital music service serving Christian music fans. Future plans are to eventually expand the site into other music genres.
I’m hoping becoming an independent website and partnered with EMI CMG and Sony BMG they’ll start getting an even broader reach across the Christian music industry.
