Franklin, TN (February 7th 2013) – Mansion Entertainment, label home to Grammy
nominated and Dove Award winning Gospel artists, has enough experience to know when a song
begins to take on a life and persona of its own. Three Bridges newest single “Forgive Myself”,
off their latest album Twelve, is just such a song.
Twelve has been an important number for Three Bridges – Twelve is the title of their newest
project, it describes the number of songs on the album, their number of years in ministry, and
the number of studio albums they have recorded. At a time when the music industry struggles
creatively to capture audiences, Three Bridges has released one of its strongest and most
powerful singles, “Forgive Myself”.
“Forgive Myself” written by John Lemonis and Amy Keffer, stresses the importance of learning
to forgive yourself of past sins just as Jesus does. This strong message hits home with the very
foundation of the Church and has resonated in the hearts of concertgoers and followers of social
Shannon Smith, who sings lead on “Forgive Myself”, stated that “When we perform this song
people are obviously moved by it – you can almost see a healing take place. It’s amazing to see
what God to do through a three or four minute song.”
Shelia Harper, founder of SaveOne Ministry, states, “Forgive Myself is quickly becoming
the theme song for our ministry, SaveOne. We are an abortion recovery ministry and the
line, ‘Mercy has no memory, grace has no regret’ speaks to the very heart of what we’re
about…forgiving ourselves through accepting Jesus’ mercy, grace, and forgiveness. Thank you
to Three Bridges for sharing this song with the world!”
One fan on social media said that the song “Greatly blessed me. I have struggled my entire life to
forgive myself…” Another fan said, “Moving on from the past and learning forgive yourself of
past mistakes is something that everyone struggles with and is relatable to so many.”
“Forgive Myself” debuted on the Singing News Top 80 Chart for March and has already
achieved success on other industry charts. As the popularity and exposure of the song grows, so
does the feedback from fans who hear it.

HisSong owner/manager Dennis Humphries states, “We are very excited to have Michael a part of this ministry and team. I have known Michael for several years and have always loved his singing, songwriting and his spirit. I’m excited to see what God has in store for this ministry.”
Michael Jason Frost grew up singing gospel music with his family in upper East Tennessee. By the time he was a teenager, he was harmonizing with his cousins and traveling on weekends across the southeast with a family band, The Frost Family. That band evolved into a vocal trio, The Frosts, that did well in the southern gospel music industry with widespread radio airplay and charting singles. The trio enjoyed success from 2002 – 2005 and earned a Singing News Fan Award nomination in 2005.
As a songwriter, Michael has had cuts by several of gospel music’s most popular artists, including a new release on Ivan Parker’s latest project HisSong, The Wilburns, Heirline and more. Many of his songs have climbed The Singing News Top 40 chart. Michael was named “Songwriter of the Year” in 2007 by the Eddie Crook Company.
In 2006, Michael was cast in an original musical production about the life of Christ called “The Miracle” at The Miracle Theater in Pigeon Forge, TN. Michael signed on for every season of The Miracle, where he played various roles from John the Baptist to Judas, and as an understudy to the role of Jesus. He also served as host and pre-show soloist. Michael appeared in more than 2,000 performances of The Miracle until the show ended its run in October 2011. Michael also appeared in the theater’s production of “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat,” starring alongside American Idol’s Melinda Doolittle.
After The Miracle ended it’s run, Michael officially joined popular southern gospel trio, HisSong in October 2011 as their full-time baritone singer.
“I’m amazed by God’s timing. Just when The Miracle closed after six years, God opened the door for me to sing with HisSong. I’ve known these guys for years, and I’ve always loved their sound and their songs. It’s an honor to join their ministry and I’m excited to see where God will take us from here,” Michael said.
Michael and his wife Jen have one daughter, Jael Esther Frost. They reside in Sevierville, TN.
HisSong is currently working on a brand new project with multi Dove Award winning producer Wayne Haun on the Vine/Crossroads label. This will be the 4th project with Wayne. This is HisSong’s 10 year anniversary and the new record will be called “Decade.”

“The Gaithers are to Christian music what The Beatles are to pop music,” said Donna Hilley, when the American Society of Composers, Artists and Publishers (ASCAP) named them “Gospel Songwriters of the Century.”

Bill and Gloria have partnered to write more than 700 songs, including “Because He Lives,” “He Touched Me,” “Let’s Just Praise the Lord,” “Something Beautiful” and “The King is Coming,” to name just a few of the favorites.
