Heaven Touches Earth
One of Australia's newest recording artists has released this inspirational album of well known timeless and contemporary classics. Deb's angelic voice will leave you breathless as she performs songs such as The Prayer, You Raise Me Up and Climb Every Mountain.
“This album has been a lifelong dream and my desire is that this music ministers, encourages and inspires people to draw their hearts towards heaven - Heaven Touches Earth”.
“We all have a story to tell in life, sometimes it appears we’ve come to the end of the path but it's just a bend in the road. My dream was to sing, to minister to people through music, but a heart condition has limited my ability to perform live. So I held onto this dream over many years and in 2010, I decided to alter my dream slightly and record an album – Heaven Touches Earth. My desire is that it inspires and encourages people particularly through the hard times of life.”
The album features a number of local Geelong (Australia) artists, including John Shawcross (piano & orchestration), Sally Hobbs (flute), Dan Zampatti (percussion) and Isaac Barter (bass). As well as the Melbourne based "Silo" string quartet and Mary Doumany (harp).
Deb is committed to supporting the work of charities and overseas missions and has partnered with a number of organisations to raise funds through the sale proceeds of this CD. “Since the release of the album in early December 2010, sale proceeds have raised in excess of $20,000 for charities and overseas mission projects. The support I have received has been overwhelming and it is wonderful that so many worthwhile causes can be supported. I look forward to continuing this work".
