Hymns Afresh 2 Cover.jpg


Growing up in a musical family, I have been singing since my earliest memories.  My parents were a professional singing team who raised nine children and taught us to perform with them.  We traveled the tri-state area for many years as the Yates Musical Theater performing to thousands of people at a time.  In 2000, I gave my life to Jesus.  Ever since then, it has been my joy to sing praises to Him, our Mighty God and Savior!  Even though there have been some rough roads traveled on my life's journey, God has taught me to rejoice in Him, nonetheless.   He has been my refuge and strength on the mountaintops and through the valleys.  Creating the Hymns Afresh series  has been a tremendous blessing to me, and  I am excited to share them with you.   Whether you are in the midst of triumph or trials, it is my prayer these songs will inspire you to worship Him along with me.  Thank you for visiting and may God bless you abundantly!

Proverbs 30:4
Who has gone up to heaven and come down?
    Whose hands have gathered up the wind?
Who has wrapped up the waters in a cloak?
    Who has established all the ends of the earth?
What is his name, and what is the name of his son?
    Surely you know!
