Accents of Worship
Musicians Expressing Their Music and Faith
“Singers, writers, and poets all use words to express their inner most thoughts. Their words are expressions of their soul. It is their voice, their art form, that can reflect something better than we can imagine in this world. Others sometimes find peace and comfort in their expressions. We live within their souls for a moment.
Music is my voice. It is my hope that this voice will bring you peace, reflection, and joy as you listen.”
