Back then all I had was Jesus as my manager, and I was going to keep singing whether I had an album or not
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) June 19, 2007
Lisa Houston is putting herself out there like never before in her national debut album "Spread the Love" (Falcon Records) due out this summer on June 26th. Lisa has been devoted to Christian music since she was a child, and now she is ready to energize her audiences with some new up-tempo aberrations of Christian spirituality and warm vocals. "I truly saw the hand of God working on this album. The making of this album has been such an amazing experience," Houston says.
Inspired by real-life incidences and her devotion to serve the Lord, "Spread the Love" has an appeal that knows no ethnic or cultural boundaries and reaches many ages and musical tastes. The title cut on her album declares "Let there be peace, let there be joy, let there be love, we need to love one another," and includes other of her trademark songs like "The Best of You in Me," "God Is Not Sleeping," "It's all about you," as well as an unforgettable Christian love ballad "I Do." With "Spread the Love," Lisa explores the many themes of life, lifting us up a whole new level of inspirations and possibilities. From several new up-tempo and hand-clapping songs, to a remake of "Yamo Be There," originally released in the 1980's, produced by Quincy Jones, and performed by James Ingram and Michael McDonald.
While working as a receptionist and after many trials and disappointments, Lisa has held to the promise she made to her father to continue singing for the Lord and use that gift for him. With "Spread the Love" and the support of Falcon Records and very talented musicians, Lisa Houston was destined to put forth an album made out of the love for Christian music. "Back then all I had was Jesus as my manager, and I was going to keep singing whether I had an album or not," says Lisa Houston.
Al Estill, the Executive Producer of "Spread the Love" first heard Lisa Houston's music, he went to her work in tears and said to her "Why are you sitting here in this place? Your voice blessed me. What is the next step for you?" One year later with the management of Falcon Records, Lisa Houston is set to launch "Spread the Love." With every song on the album being a spiritual exploration, this Christian artist/songwriter is ready to put forth a remarkable album full of faith-driven and inspiring songs.
"Lisa Houston and I had a great time working together on this album. When I heard her testimony at the Spirit Bowl in Ojai in 2005, and how she had been taken back for her money by someone in the industry, God spoke to me and told me that I needed to speak to her," Jimmy Mac says. He adds, "Lisa has a great message for the world and her communication skills and singing voice are perfectly suited to get that message across. Lisa is definitely ready to spread God's love and encourage her audiences that it's all about him."
Details are forthcoming on Lisa Houston's "Spread the Love" project and performance schedule.
To really experience Houston's appeal, you need to see her perform live! Lisa grabs hold of her audience the moment she steps on stage and takes them with her on a journey into the presence of the Almighty.

About Lisa Houston
Christian artist/songwriter Lisa Houston was born in Oxnard, California with a love for Christian music and ministry sounds. She has been serving the Lord with her vibrant music for several years. Lisa has always impacted lives and inspired listeners with her warm vocals and heartfelt ballads. When Executive Producer's Al Estill and Jimmy Mac heard her voice, and noticed her very devoted following and her setbacks in the music industry, the story of Lisa Houston changed. With the release of "Spread the Love," Houston has put forth a remarkable album full of faith-driven and inspiring songs. Her endearing presence and friendly down-to-earth style has won over local audiences in Ventura County, California as well as several National and International engagements.
As a child, Lisa Houston practiced singing in front of her mother's gold framed living room and the console stereo. When her father (Herbert Harvey) passed away, Houston had a singing audition with Harvey Fuqa. Her father's last words were "Daughter you are going to be a star. Just remember only to sing for the Lord. I love you, I love you, I love you." Lisa told herself that if she could sing at her father's funeral, she could sing anywhere else. From singing contests to karaoke bars and weddings, Lisa's mission to communicate encouraging messages from God to Christian music lovers always followed her. Houston communicates with her audiences as if each person in the room were her personal friend. God has clearly blessed her with a talent and charisma meant for her to continue to bless lives as she communicates her message "Spread the love!"
