A classically trained singer and violinist, Jean Watson delved into the Christian recording world as a singer/songwriter in 2003. Since that time, her voice and testimony of God's grace and healing have touched thousands of lives around the world. The power of Jean's message comes out of her unique ability to minister and perform with a balance of musical excellence and childlike transparency. God uses Jean to break barriers of the heart through her willingness to share the story of her own weakness and healing. Hearing Jean sing and speak brings an infusion of faith in the love and power of God. Her passion for God is absolutely contagious!
Jean's passion for God is joined by a deep compassion for people. Through her own brokenness, she has a compassion for the hurting which draws people to her. It is not uncommon for a concert to close with people lining up for prayer, which is the heart of Jean’s ministry. It is this love - this childlike belief that even small things can change the world - that drives Jean. Her purpose is to share faith and hope with as many as possible, using all her gifts to breathe hope to the hurting. It is Jean's heart to give away as much of her proceeds as possible to charities around the world.
The power of Jean’s message in no way overshadows the beauty and excellence of her music, however. Trained as a classical musician, Jean shares her heart through music that is truly a genre all its own. Through a love of music that transcends style, her sound is eclectic and unique with strong classical and folk influences. A consummate singer, songwriter, arranger, and violinist, Jean insists on excellence in everything she does. She has recorded six albums to date including her latest CD, "Christmas...Not The Way It Seems" featuring Grammy nominated producer Billy Smiley and guitar virtuoso Phil Keaggy.
The beauty of her music is matched only by the beauty of the message of God’s love that it carries. Jean maintains a full concert schedule in the US, Ireland, and the UK where she was named 'Female Praise and Worship Artist USA' by the UK New Christian Music Alliance in 2007, 2008, 2009, and 2010. She has also committed much of her ministry time to 'the least of these'....logging in thousands of miles traveling to perform in churches, prisons, coffeehouses, homeless shelters, and concert halls. Watson's voice and ministry are also now heard worldwide on UCB Radio Ireland where she hosts a daily inspirational radio show.
Jean is also a gifted speaker and Bible teacher. She is as comfortable speaking at women's retreats and conferences as she is on the concert stage. Jean speaks powerful, encouraging messages from her own testimony and from the Word of God. With a love for language, Jean draws meaning from the original Greek and Hebrew texts and shines light on God's life-changing truth.
When she is not writing, recording, or on the road, Jean enjoys playing violin in the Kalamazoo Symphony, spending time with her family, and playing with her horse, Rosie.

Goals As A Christian Musician/Songwriter:
Since childhood, I have became smitten with the raw beauty and marvel of the Holy Spirit's power working through both a song and a musician to stir, move and impact the listener; especially when that happens to the extent that the listener experiences transformational growth at some level as a a result. My goal in singing and writing songs is two-fold and very simple:
1) To encase and communicate the Gospel of Christ and biblical truths through the music.
2) To effectively channel the power of the Holy Spirit in facilitating authentic worship experiences for listener that ultimately add value to the transformational and spiritual growth of the listener.

CSMI Music Conference:
Besides the gorgeous scenery of Gatlinburg on a beautiful fall day, some of the greatest moments we experienced at the CSMI conference this year were the connections we made with other people. Being around others with a common interest, just as passionate about God, music, and impacting the world for God through music, inspires someone like me to take my writing and musicianship to the next level. I really believe the whole theme of CSMI focuses around one simple point: it doesn’t matter what level you’re at, we want to help you to get to the next level and make an impact for Jesus. I love the heart of the leaders, Gene and Anne Schmidt, to raise up young leaders who’s sole mission is to please the Father. We also learned some things about the music business and how to get started in that avenue, but the focus remains on God Himself.
Heather Richardson Indiana
My desire is to share the love and hope of God through song. I want to write songs that give hope to the hopeless, comfort to the broken, and joy to the weary. God used music to draw me to him for the first time and I know He is still using music to draw. I love being a part of that story.
Hi! I hope 2016 has been good to you so far!
Frankly, I've had some ups and downs already. But the God who calmed the wind and the waves for His disciples can calm the storms in my life. Just wanted to let you know what's been going on and what's coming up!

I have a huge desire to write music that has strong pop influences in hopes that people who may not be interested in listening to worship music. The music I write I hope it breaks boundaries between secular and sacred music I believe music can be powerful if it tells the right message.
Pastor Grant Pemberton
Leon Timbo Georgia
"My songs are birthed in secret places on a stage of transparent prayers so they require the listener to be ready to be transparent in their listening," explains Timbo.
Combining soulful warmth, a genuine and folksy feel with his immediately recognizable voice, Leon has sung his way into the hearts of industry leaders like Quincy Jones, Sean "Diddy" Combs, R. Kelly, and many more along with his host of fans worldwide. His ability to say what so many feel is uncanny.
Simple yet sophisticated, Leon's’ music and lyrics have phenomenal accessibility and universal appeal. He expresses what every man wants to say in a relationship where he feels he's failing or to true friends. Leon’s music even invites the listener on a patriotic ride with political expressions. Leon sets his passions on the Creator exclusively with the reminiscent seventies register of styles and a bit of Seal like quality.
Leon Timbo began singing at the late age of 16. In his early 20's, he chose the acoustic guitar to further his expression through music. Leon began traveling in 2006 after a national album release of "Soul Sessions" with an independent label. The album did poor in sales due to the lack of marketing and budget, but this did not stop Leon from his grass roots self marketing. Leon chose to use this as a platform and stepping stone. With his consistent grinding, Leon was doing over 150 shows per year by 2008. Leon has received abnormal success and publicity over the country as he simply explains the most under discussed and simply misunderstood parts of life, love, and God in a very non religious approach.
Leon Timbo recently signed a label deal with Kenny "Babyface" Edmonds through the introduction of Tyrese Gibson, one of Leon's close friends. Babyface Edmonds has produced and written music for many artists including Prince, Al Green, Beyoncé, Diana Ross, Sheena Easton, Toni Braxton, Michael Jackson, Michael Bolton, Paula Abdul, Pebbles, Tevin Campbell, Bobby Brown, Whitney Houston, Brandy, Mary J. Blige, Tamia, Janet Jackson, Shola Ama, 3T, Sisqo, Dru Hill, Fall Out Boy, Céline Dion, Katharine McPhee, Mariah Carey, Vanessa L. Williams, En Vogue, Eric Clapton, Madonna, Kenny G, Kristinia DeBarge, Lil Wayne, Aretha Franklin, Japanese singer Ken Hirai, P!nk, Marc Nelson, TLC, and Phil Collins among others. Babyface received three consecutive Grammy Awards for Producer of the Year in 1995–1997.
Babyface feels its time to tirelessly labor to house Leon Timbo's authentic sound to present Him to the world. He says, "Leon Timbo is going to take this industry by storm. He's diverse and he has the natural charisma it takes to stand out in a sea of artist."
Timbo has a heart to speak truth acoustically and build upon an already inspiring tradition of music set before him.

Wasepi Bluegrass Band MI
We have been singing since 1974. We started by singing in our home church. At the time it was "The Wasepi Mennoite Chapel", Wasepi, Michigan, and by the home folks we were simply called the Wasepi Singers. Then other churches and organizations began calling us to sing and thus began the Wasepi Bluegrass Gospel Singers. From the beginning, we have tried to promote the Gospel and make that our goal. Our services include singing, testifying, and the joy of the Lord.

About the Servant
At the age of eight Lisa met Jesus personally; by ten she was called to ministry. By
eighteen she was focused on a degree in Music. Contemporary music programs did
not yet exist; Lisa trained classically, specializing in Vocal Performance. About five
years after degree she added vocal training in contemporary music performance
under the tutelage of a Julliard graduate as well as a further six years of intensive
ministry business development. Her cross-denominational experience includes
vocal instruction in individual and group formats, teaching, and preaching in
retreats, small group ministries, worship teams, youth gatherings, church services,
and public venues. Lisa has held or operated in positions such as Church Music
Director, Choir Director, Worship Team Leader, Youth Vacation Bible School
teacher, and Adult Sunday School teacher. Her experience also includes three
ministry trips to South Africa. In all these things Lisa has passionately and
relentlessly pursued Jesus for His manifestation in her calling.
Ministering with warmth and humor, Lisa’s messages are often peppered with
personal stories. Her favorite topic is a biblical approach to low self-esteem/
insecurity and righteousness in Christ. She believes the fear of man is an ever-
present snare that trips the Body’s obedience, boldness, and the finding of their
full potential in Christ. Our human need to “fit in” is in direct opposition to God’s
intention for mankind and the use of His gifts; Jesus is unique, and in this world we
are to be as He is. Lisa has dealt with this issue extensively in her own life and
knows the unmasking of the enemy’s lies and deliverance that can only come
through Jesus Christ and the revelation of the Holy Spirit. Perfect love casts out
fear. And love, identity, and faith often make an appearance in her messages.
Lisa’s other passions include Butch
Lisa’s other passions include Butch (her husband of over 30 years), pizza, ice cream,
