“I know how powerful music is, & the capacity it has to reach people’s hearts in ways that few other things can. I have personally witnessed how music can lift people out of depression, release hope into hopeless situations, bring peace & calm to complicated or tragic life situations, & bring healing both emotionally & physically to people. I want to play my part in using the musical gifts that God has given me to see hope & breakthrough, peace & healing, freedom & joy released into the lives of my listeners." - Louise Campion
