About Amy Berna
and her new album “Miracles“
GOD OF MIRACLES
YOU DO THE IMPOSSIBLE
WHEN HOPE IS INVISIBLE YOU MAKE A WAY
GOD OF SECOND CHANCES
TURNING STRUGGLES INTO DANCES
IN ALL CIRCUMSTANCES YOU WILL SAVE THE DAY
Music has always been a mainstay of Amy Berna’s life. With a passion for soul and R&B, she started singing in church and taking piano lessons at the age of 5. By the age of 12, she was singing with her 3 sisters, which quickly turned into a full time ministry. Known as “Surrendered Heart,” Amy and her sisters recorded 3 CDs – the final album at the renowned Ardent Studios in Memphis, TN, and toured in Brazil, Mexico and across the Western United States. Amy’s achievements include 1st place win at the American Christian Music Showcase in San Jose, CA. which was the beginning of her solo endeavors. This one event propelled her career, allowing her to record five demos with writers and producers from EMAC Publishing / Gotee Records. Amy also won the Vocal III Category of the Gospel Music Association event “Music in the Rockies” as well as achieving the 1st place win in the Solo/Duet Category at the “Christian Music Awards” Talent Competition sponsored by United One Productions.
Amy’s much-anticipated album “Miracles” is set to release worldwide on November 21, 2017. Amy worked with an all star team of award winning producers on this project! Grammy, Emmy and Dove Award winning Shannon Sanders (India Arie, Jonny Lang, Jonathan McReynolds) produced six of the nine tracks on the album. Grammy Award winning Ron Rawls (Mandissa) produced the title track “Miracles”. Two time Grammy Award winning James Waddell (Aretha Franklin, Kirk Franklin) produced “All Nations” a song that Amy co-wrote and recorded as a duet with her beautiful artist friend from Nigeria, Shalom. And last but certainly not least, Dove Award winning Kene “Ghost” Bell (The Katinas, Grits) produced “Giving Me Love”. Amy continues to travel, singing and speaking at concerts, conferences, women’s events & retreats. In addition to Amy’s ministry in the United States she has ministered in many different countries including Mexico, Brazil, Kenya, Thailand, Sri Lanka, Nigeria, & The Philippines.
Amy’s combination of soulful pop mixed with a heart of worship has given her the ability to reach people from many different walks of life. She and her husband Stoney are Pastors of The Lighthouse Christian Fellowship in Madera Ranchos, CA where she regularly exercises her ministry. As worship leader at The Lighthouse, Amy’s writing has become about a 50/50 split – half straight up songs of worship, and half heartfelt, passionate songs of life experience. However, she admits that writing worship songs has become her escape. “There’s nothing like surrendering to true worship, it has a way of bringing everything into perspective, He is God and I am not!”
COMING 11/21/17 “MIRACLES”
From the time of its inception my heart’s desire for this album is that it would bring hope and healing to the listener just as it has to me many times over. I have personally lived every word of every song and while the making of it has been a very long process it has also been one of my greatest adventures.
FOR THE STREAMS IN MY DESERT
FOR THE HEALING IN YOUR SCARS
FOR POURING OUT YOUR TREASURES
OH BRIGHT AND MORNING STAR
FOR MERCIES NEW
FOR PROMISES TRUE
IF I HAD A THOUSAND TONGUES I’D SAY YOU
THANK YOU JESUS
The title track, “MIRACLES” is a relentless declaration of faith in a God that is greater than anything we face. Born from a cry of desperation, it is both a song of hope and a challenge of belief. Doubt and fear rise to crush the existence of faith but it is unwavering faith that moves the heart of God. The chant-like chorus that repeatedly resounds two very powerful words – “I believe” – is a call to believers young and old, a revival of hope that speaks volumes and protests the cruel realities of life. Its message awakens the seed of faith within us all as its melody rushes in with healing and assurance reminding us that with man it is impossible but with God ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE!
