Melissa David Interview

Wow, today's show was AWESOME!  Dan and Melissa David have a new CD, "Draw Me Close."   I featured lots of their music and shared a pre-recorded interview with Melissa.

Here's a little bit about her:  

From her early childhood, Melissa demonstrated a gift for music, including a keen musical ear (being able to reproduce melodies she heard at an early age). She began playing the piano at age five and composing her own simple songs not long after. Melissa won first prize in several music festivals she entered as a child in British Columbia. She continued her musical studies with the Royal Conservatory of Music, later completing a Bachelor of Arts in Music Theory, History and Composition from the University of Lethbridge — graduating with Great Distinction in 2002.
During the final year of her Bachelor of Arts degree, Melissa was actively preparing a portfolio for graduate studies in academic music at the Eastman School of Music in Rochester, New York. However, she abandoned this pursuit after what can only be described as a supernatural moment of hearing from the Lord. She heard Him clearly direct that she was not to pursue her doctorate, but that she was to wait on Him for the tasks he would have ahead for her. She felt that she was to use her music to glorify Him, and to bring healing to others. At this time, the Lord also began taking her on a journey to discover the Hebrew roots of her faith in Yeshua (Jesus).  This nine year journey culminated in her meeting Dan — a Messianic Jew with the same calling upon his life and music.  Together with her husband, Melissa is now living out this calling — her music and songs touching thousands of lives every year. Her music has most often been described as calming, soothing, peaceful, and inspiring.

Sonia Bihary Interview

Here is a sweet interview with Sonia Bihary, a worship leader from Tikvat Ysrael in Cleveland, Ohio.

Sonia grew up in a Jewish home but they weren't religious.   She attended Shabbat services and studied Judaism.   She felt empty and searched for something more.   Sonia looked into other religions but nothing satisfied her.

Sonia's sister visited her and told her about Yeshua.  After praying and reading the book of John the Lord revealed Himself to Sonia.   This was in 1981.

Both of Sonia's parents came to the Lord before they died!  God is good!

Sonia is a wonderful worship leader.   She majored in music at Oberlin in Ohio.   She taught for awhile, was involved in music therapy and began writing music.

Please keep Sonia's ministry in your prayers and for wisdom for her family as they make decisions about their special needs son.

Deborah Kline and Vince Iantorno

What a wonderful time with Deborah and Vince!   Double blessing!   You will love the new music from their CD "Here Am I" and the fun interview!

Deborah and her husband, Vince have uniquely combined their gifts to write and record a strong mix of praise, dance and prayer music. The duo travel internationally to bring the Good News of Messiah, using their ministry and music to bring people into a joyful time of praise and worship. Their ministry is “Shir Chadash” which means A New Song.

With their rousing and inspirational talent this event is sure to be one that you won’t want to miss. Deborah has been recommended as an “outstanding new artist” by well known Messianic worship leaders such as Marty Goetz and Ted Pearce. She has a God-given talent to usher people into praise and worship to their King. When asked about her passion for singing, Deborah said, “I have sang since I was a little girl.  My father had a beautiful voice and even was offered a scholarship to Julliard. He comes from a long line of Jewish Cantors, so I guess I was just born with it.
