Cheri Keaggy's Testimony at CEO Fellowship Event

Dove Award winning recording artist and speaker Cheri Keaggy recently performed and spoke at a New Year's gathering of the Christian Executive Officers (CEO) Fellowship. The event for Nashville area business leaders was hosted by Steinway's Bill Metcalfe and held at Steinway Piano Gallery of Nashville, reports McCain & Co. Public Relations.

"After performing for the group, I wanted to offer appropriate and hope-filled verses as we headed into a new year," Keaggy says. "I read from Revelation 21, concluding with verse 4-5: 'He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.' He who is seated on the throne said, 'I am making everything new!' Then he said, 'Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.'"

More than 50 area business leaders attended the holiday event, where Keaggy's presentation was well-received.

"Everybody really enjoyed Cheri's music and witness,” Metcalfe says. "Her testimony ignited a lot of other sharing among the group. It was really a special time."

About Cheri Keaggy:

Cheri Keaggy began her career as a worship leader at a small church in Southern California before recording her debut album on Sparrow Records, Child of the Father, in 1994. Honored with a Dove Award nomination for New Artist of the Year, Keaggy has gone on to record seven additional albums, resulting in nine No. 1 songs, three Dove Award nominations and a Dove Award win. After more than two decades in music, her ministry has expanded to include speaking engagements as well.

Keaggy's new release, So I Can Tell, which was released July 10 on her Psalm 91 record label, is Keaggy's first CD since her independent 2007 release, Because He First Loved Us.

Under the guidance of Gospel Music Hall of Famer and legendary guitarist Phil Keaggy, Cheri Keaggy called on the combined talents of Scott Dente and Ken Lewis from Global Genius Productions to produce So I Can Tell. The combination of rich, acoustic sounds with Cheri Keaggy's signature plaintive vocals and searingly honest lyrics results in a project that confronts life's realities, even when filled with despair, and offers listeners the way to navigate through the challenges to a place of hope through Christ.

Penned following the end of her nearly 23-year marriage to her high school sweetheart, So I Can Tell is a testimony of God's goodness in the midst of pain and suffering. Like a modern day psalmist, Keaggy's lyrics express grief, loneliness, and God's comfort in the contemporary hymns "Bind Me To You," "There Will Be One Day" and the arresting "Hello, God." She echoes the apostle Paul in the memorable piano ballad "To Live is Christ" and celebrates Christ's provision in the ukulele-based crowd favorite "Air, Food, and Water."

Through an accessible folk-pop presentation, the album leaves listeners with a renewed sense that God is with us, no matter what. So I Can Tell is filled with the radio-ready songs for which Keaggy is known and loved. Her lush vocals lovingly caress piano ballads like the title cut and the haunting "When You Were Jesus To Me." Her voice takes on a lilting quality in the hope-infused "Starting a New Year Today," written on the one-year anniversary of her divorce. As an added bonus, guitar maestro Phil Keaggy closes the album with the peace-evoking benediction "Postlude: Invitation to Hope."
