Christmas CD Project- 2015

I am currently recording a Christmas CD with producer Dave Bechtel, in Nashville. Dave will be coming up to NJ to record our Ecumenical Choir on a few of the songs in July of this year, 2015. The release of the CD is planned for December of 2015. I will be sending out E mails, and posting on my web site and Facebook, as the plans are finalized. Most of you already know the Christmas music. I hope you will join us and be a part of this special and exciting Christmas recording project. The live orchestra and musicians who will be recording on my CD in Nashville, are famous. They have recorded with Michael W. Smith, Amy Grant, Carrie Underwood, Vince Gill, Martina McBride, and many others. As with all of our music, it is for the glory of God!

Port Isabel, Texas-2015

Special thanks to Fishers of Men Lutheran Church, for the opportunity to share my music ministry with your church, the Youth Mission, and nursing home.   I enjoyed writing the song, "You Should Not Have Any Other Gods" with your Confirmation class, based on the Ten Commandments.   I aslo enjoyed singing at the nursing home.  Thank you for making the two performances possible!   Music touches their hearts and souls, and brings back so many memories for the residents.   The youth service Saturday night was awesome!  On Sunday, your church family made me feel right at home, at both worship services.   It was a joy to give my concert for your church members and community.   I look forward to returning to your church in the future!  God bless!

Nancy's 2 New CD's!!!

Cd1 3type
Cd2 2type

COME & WORSHIP is a collection of Nancy's worship songs, all written by Nancy, (except Let Your Heart Be Broken, lyrics by Bryan Jeffery Leech, music by Nancy).   Nancy worked with arranger Jimmy Mac, Ventura, CA, and Recording Engineer, Joe Demaio, Shore - Fire Recording Studio, NJ, to bring you an uplifting and inspiring experience. Nancy's band included N.J. Shore musicians Bob Marriner, bass, and Bobby Boyd, drums, with Nancy on vocals, guitar, and piano.  
These songs come from her experiences as a worship leader and songwriter. Each song reflects Nancy's love for worship, and her faith in God. Her strong vocals and memorable melodies encourage everyone to sing along. Song titles include Come, Come, & Worship, Divine Union, We Belong to the Lord, Nothing Can Separate Us, I Am the Bread of Life, and If You Love Me. Nancy says,"This project comes from those "moments" in worship, when we feel God's presence, and Christ comes to us through the Word, songs, and communion with Him. No matter what we are going through in life, music helps us to grow closer to Him. I pray that you will experience what I have experienced in worship, through these songs... "

COVER ME, LORD is a collection of Nancy's Contemporary Christian songs and a more personal journey of faith. All songs were written by Nancy, and reflect her life experiences with friends and family...of loss, encouragement, and hope. Her vocals are powerful, yet soothing. Her style is Contemporary Christian, with an orchestral sound on several songs, such as The Lord's Prayer (Music written by Nancy), and the title song, Cover Me, Lord. Other song titles include You Are My Mother, A Father Who Loves, There Are No Words, Lover of Love, I Gotta Be Good, Bridge of Flowers, Life On Wings, and Follow Him. Nancy began recording her vocal and guitar tracks with Joe Demaio, at Shore - Fire Recording Studio, NJ. Her project was completed in Nashville, TN, under the direction of producer, Dave Bechtel. The band in Nashville, who played on Nancy's CD, included musicians who record and perform with artists, such as, Amy Grant and Michael W. Smith. Dave also used musicians from Nashville, who played in the orchestra. Nancy says, "This project reflects the love I have for my Mom and Dad, as well as offering hope and comfort to friends who have lost loved ones. The CD was completed right before my Mom passed away, and I was thankful that she was able to hear her song, You Are My Mother, one last time, on Mother's Day. After my Mom's funeral, I released a video dedicated to our life together, using her song. Cover Me, Lord, There Are No Words, and Bridge of Flowers, were written for friends who were going through difficult times, or were mourning the loss of loved ones. God gives us the gift of music to lift us up, when we feel we are at our lowest. I pray this CD will fill your life with hope, renewed faith, and joy...

Cayman Island Tour- 2013

 Hello, Friends!  

My tour in Grand Cayman was wonderful and inspiring!!   Sharing my music ministry with the Savannah United Church, was a blessing!   Their service was beautiful and uplifting.   I sang my rendition of The Lord's Prayer and Life on Wings, from my Cover Me Lord, CD, as well as If You Love Me, from Come & Worship, and Send Me, from Covenant Love.   How Great Thou Art is always a favorite, and I sang Sandy Patti's arrangement, which I love.  The pastor's sermon focused on building up God's Kingdom here on earth.   We strive to work for the glory of God, in our daily walk with Him.   I could feel God's presence, and felt the love of the people in the congregation, as they worshipped.  It was also Youth Sunday, and the young people did a great job leading the service.

My schedule continued at The Pines Assisted Living facility, in George Town, Grand Cayman.   The people responded with smiles and hugs.  It was a joy to share God's Word with them, through music.  People who were asleep when I arrived, woke up and participated, as they heard familiar hymns and songs.  It is amazing to see the healing power of music with people who have dementia, Alzheimer's, and other elderly illnesses.

On Wednesday, October 23rd, I led the worship service at Elmslie United Church, located across from the port, where the cruise ships dock.   Special thanks to Pastor Dave, who resumed this mid-week service, for those who were traveling.  I also met local worshippers, as they shared their faith with me.   I met a young woman who told me about her mother's passing, as I shared my own grief in losing my Mom, this past summer.   Even in another part of the world, we shared common struggles and pain.  The Lord lifted us up, and helped us, as we listened and supported one another. 

I am thankful to God for this ministry opportunity!

Carnegie Hall - An Awesome Experience!

Hello, friends!  

The concert at Carnegie Hall was awesome, with Michael W. Smith!   You could feel God's presence, amidst the sold out crowd.  Bringing the Gospel to New York City, through our music, was inspiring.   We can carry this "mountain top" experience into our daily lives, remembering the glorious music, the fellowship, and sharing the love of Christ, together.
