CCM pioneer Kelly Willard returns with first album in 11 years

ONE OF the pioneers of Jesus music, Kelly Willard has made a return to the scene with her album 'Paga' on Autumn Records. It is the singer's first studio project in 11 years. Named after the Hebrew word meaning sacrifice for the purpose of intercession, 'Paga' features simple arrangements using Irish pipes, harps and strings. Said Willard, "A lot of my songs are a heartfelt cry to walk with him through it all and experience some kind of joy, peace and comfort; I needed a closer walk with the Lord and a sense of his presence." CR

So good to hear that Kelly has returned to share her gift of music that we have blessed to hear for many years. When we hear her sing it is a message from the King! From the start she has had a willing heart!
Lookin' back at the songs cultivated from her garden,
we are somehow touched, and get homesick for Heaven! Her psalms, hymns and spiritual songs are from above; kelly's reply "Blame it on the One I love"
(lol) GOD Bless! - Don

I have been greatly encouraged by your testimonoy over the last few years. My sister and I have fans of yours for decades and have come to love God more sincerely because of your music ministry. Thank you for living a real life of sacrifice that honors God and blesses others. No one but God knows what you've sacrificed to honor Him. I'm grateful and encouraged. I will be praying for you.

Would love to know when this new release is available in the UK. I'm finding US-based stores only at the moment.
Thanks in anticipation

Hoping you'll drop by,
