I recorded my first album at age ten. As I heard it for the first time since my childhood last year, I could not help but cry thinking about my life and how faithful God has been to me through every season. I sang the songs with all of my heart as a child and mean them even more today.
I decided to make this available for everyone to hear. (I grew up in TN, but I went through a phase where I tried to sing these Christian songs without an accent, which is both cute and a little comical looking back. The album was recorded in the middle of that phase, and it was my first time being in a recording studio. I had no producer and there were no second takes).
I sang as a soloist in revival meetings back when Baptist churches had revival meetings. I began singing solos at age three but began traveling and singing professionally at age ten, the same year I recorded these songs.
Here is the album now on iTunes, Spotify, Napster, Soundcloud, Pandora and everywhere digital music is sold, as all money from it goes to support my Christian nonprofit organization that helps reach underprivileged children and more all over the world.
