About Nancy:

Experience the healing power of music.
You will feel many emotions...through her music, Nancy
focuses on how God can help you with any spiritual needs you may have.

Nancy's style of music is popular, merging her vocal,
guitar, piano, and songwriting talents into her music ministry. With an emphasis on audience participation, Nancy also includes praise and worship melodies, as well as traditional and favorite hymns. Her concerts appeal to all ages.

Nancy's interest in music began in her church, when
as a youngster, she wrote and performed her original songs for worship services. With her unique talents vocally and instrumentally, she pursued a career in music, graduating from college, and continuing her studies in New York and Rome, Italy. Her performance credits took her to many places, such as, the Rome Opera and Music Festival, Italy, Carnegie Recital Hall, Lincoln Center, Off-Broadway, St. John The Divine, New York, St. Paul's Chapel, New York, Count Basie Theatre, NJ, and The Great Auditorium, Ocean Grove, NJ.

Nancy experienced a spiritual turning point in her
life when she attended a Christian Artist Conference at the CBN/700 Club in Virginia. She felt inspired to use her musical gifts for the glory of God, and use her training and experience for the church. Soon afterward, she recorded her own original contemporary Christian CD, entitled, "Open Heart." When she returned to the CBN event, her song, "Step Into The Light" won recognition by recording professionals from top record labels, such as Word and Sparrow.

Nancy has performed onstage with renowned Christian
artists, such as Twila Paris and Larnelle Harris, in selections from the"Young New Messiah" at Estes Park, Colorado, conducted by Ralph Carmichael. She has also performed at the Summer Winds Crusade, along with noted artists, Crystal Lewis and The Kry, in Ocean Grove, NJ.
Nancy was one of ten finalist winners in the
Spotlight and Song Competition, sponsored by The Gospel Music Association and the Philadelphia Academy of Gospel Music Arts. In the summer of 1996, she performed for the historical Jerusalem 3000 Gospel Music Celebration in Israel. Performances were held in spectacular sights, such as, The Second Century Citadel of David, the 8000 Seat OutdoorSultan's Pool Amphitheater, and the Amphitheater at Caesarea. Nancy sang onstage with top Christian artists, such as, Sandi Patty, Wayne Watson, Kathy Troccoli, Steve Green, and Phil Driscoll.

Nancy tours nationally and internationally, traveling
to churches of all denominations and non-denominations. Nancy's music ministry is a reflection of her own personal spiritual journey. She is dedicated to reaching churched and unchurched audiences, as well as our young people.

Nancy is the Music Director and Worship Leader at her local church, King of Kings Lutheran Church, in Middletown, NJ, where she sings, plays guitar and piano, and leads the Praise Team and Band, and children's choirs."
