This is me, Kimberly Salmon. I’m just a good ‘ole country girl from the East Texas Area. I’ve been singing in church since I was 4 and now I’m 52, and have recently had the opportunity to record my first CD with Daywind Studios in Nashville. I went there to record some of my old favorite gospel songs that I’ve sung for years. When I got through recording that day they ask me to come back to their other studio. My husband and I went over there and they told us they thought I really had a lot of talent and wanted to know if I might be interested in listening to a couple of demos they had that they thought would really fit my voice well and they liked my “Texas twang”. I said ok… I was shocked and honored. The guy with Daywind told me.. not to make any decisions on this today. Ya’ll go home and pray about it. He started playing the song. After the first verse, I looked over at my husband and he was crying big alligator tears and I was teared up too. After the song was over, my husband looked and me and he looked at the guy from Daywind and he said, “I can tell you, we don’t have to go home and pray about this, cause she’s gonna sing that one.
We had recently lost his mother, rather suddenly, and he had gotten their family Bible. The things she had recorded in that Bible, the little side notes, were just historical to say the least. After we were given the song, I ask my mom about the verse that’s in the song. She got her old Bible out… the only verse in James 10 that was highlighted, was James 10:29. I had previously ask her to be in the music video of this. At that time, it became clear to her that she had to be in it.
The video should come out on You Tube this week and I hope you all enjoy it.
