Rev Deanna Jaworski (above left) has released four recordings: two 3-song CD-EPs, ("Somewhere In The Morning," 1985, and "SpiritSongs," 1997) and two full-length CDs, "Creating the Future" and "Everything's Gonna Be Alright," both from 1999. Her delightful version of "Operator" came from the latter disc. She is Senior Pastor at the Church of the Holy SpiritSong, in Ft. Lauderdale.

      

Dale Jarrett  Dale Jarrett CD  Witness

Pastor Dale Jarrett released a solo CD, ""Into His Presence: Songs of Worship & Adoration," in 2000, but before that sang with a group called Witness. I took "Hold On To The Gospel" from their 1992 tape, "Jesus Is Lord of All," and their other release is shown below.

"God Is Greater" by Witness

Below, Sherry Stanton also used the name Sherry Phillips, and google only yielded for me a couple small photos of her. And the group Reconciled, out of Tacoma, WA, is even more elusive. Even though I have their self-titled 1998 CD, it gives no member names or clues of their current existence.

Orgena Rose  Orgena Rose  Judy Cassidy  Judy Cassidy CD

Orgena Rose is a "graduate" of Marsha Stevens' Upbeat program, and is readying her first CD, and above right is Judy Cassidy, who released a disc of standards in 2002. Angel Blacker (below) has left little trail of her work on the net; I found only the two small scans of her albums. I was pleased to be able to take her song "Born Again" from the various artist CD "Walk By Faith, Volume 1." It and its companion disc were put out by Pride Christian Music in 2002 and 2003, and now are themselves difficult to find. They are worth the hunt though, as they contain music by several artists difficult to obtain, like Sherry Stanton, Gospel Express, Joe Warner, Judy Cassidy, Acoustic Souls, Deanna Jaworski, Kevin Jacobson, Marcus Young, and others.

I easily found both of the CDs below at CDbaby.com, a great source for the music of indy artists. Cathy Bridges' "Renaissance" is from 2000, and brand new is "Glory," by Beth Styles and her friends...talented friends such as Rev Delores Berry and Rev Franc Perry, an excellent CD.

Above, Houston artist Alan Lett already has two excellent CDs under
his belt of his own, and has produced the last two releases for
Jason and deMarco, and the new and debut recording for Allen Hanks

Everybody Else, 1991 single

I probably have one of the more complete Christian Andreason recording collections, and they range from his 1991 cassette single to his latest CD, a various artists benefit disc he produced for Katrina relief. His song "Show Me In Red" was perfect to start this show, and I thank him for his comments on the song. I just had to play another song by him, and in this segment chose "All the Time," from 2001.

Finishing off this segment are Indiana artist Marcus Young, whose latest CD,
"Heart's Fire" was released in 2003. Don Kennedy released his mostly spiritual
CD, "Come Home," in 1997, and in 2004 the Transcendence Gospel Choir
