MUSIC IS GOOD FOR THE SOUL
Over 20 years performing professionally across the Southeast and internationally, teaching vocal and piano students and leading worship, April has the ability to bring meaningful messages through song from a bar stool and church stage. April believes true worship is everywhere and in the lives we lead serving others and living our purpose which April does through her music. Her latest music works comprise much of a story untold. Songs that are about being bullied, domestic violence and finding redemption, grace and forgiveness among the trauma, disillusionment and losing herself.
Banks Of The Chattahoochee, April’s latest release is about the journey of finding herself again spinning from her previous Sojourner EP which was a collection of songs of this beautiful and messy life knowing this is not the end of the road.
Stepping onto the platform or stage, April now finds a new direction being much more mission minded. Amped Kids Foundation, a nonprofit she founded in 2018, is serving foster youth, adopted youth and at risk youth who have suffered trauma with free music programs. Her vision is through music lessons, songwriting and other programs the youth served with find a place of community and connection, healing, an outlet for self expression, hope and empowerment to find their voices.
April’s newest collaboration with Nashville songwriter, Greg Barnhill, Saved By A Song is about the power of music transforming lives to be released in 2024.
