(Atlanta, GA) - December 15, 2011 - Gospel sensation Trish Standley has a voice that gets noticed.  The Atlanta-based songstress has been getting the attention of gospel music lovers with her unabashed love for the Lord and her striking vocal prowess.  She hasn't just been gaining fans in the US, but also in the UK. 

"Love", the danceable single from Standley's sophomore release Redemption, peaked at #5 on the UK Soul Charts.  The 2011 Excellence in Christian Music Award Recipient will be holding her CD release event for Redemption on Friday, January 6, 2012 at 9PM at Finding Eve Soul Café (49 Boulevard SE, R-6, Atlanta, GA 30312 - 678.971.3101).  More information can be found at FindingEveSoulCafe.com.
The event will feature a live performance from the artist singing songs from the new project.  Neo-Soul artist Sonya Knight as well as duo Go2 will be Trish's special guests. CDs will be sold on the night of the event.  Twenty percent of CD sale proceeds from the evening's festivities will be donated to Thistle Farms (www.ThistleFarms.org), a Christian women's rehabilitation center for recovering addicts and prostitutes in Nashville, TN.
The intimate venue will allow Trish to minister personally.  The artist is looking forward to the CD release event and says, "I am so excited about starting the year off with this Redemption concert because that is exactly what 'Redemption' is all about. The new year is all about new beginnings," shares Trish.  "It is VERY important to me that an atmosphere of 'inclusion' is set because no one is worthy of the message of Christ, that he loves, died and rose for them, too.  My prayer is that through this event seeds will be planted in the hearts of those who are unsure of this message and that they are connected with the 'watering' of that Word so that it can grow in their hearts and minds."
A native of Kokomo, Indiana, Trish began singing at her home church.  Her songwriting career began when she took her mother's poetry and put melody to it.  Years later, after moving to Atlanta, she continued embracing her musical talents, and studied voice with Canangela Boyd-Robertson of Jan Smith Studios, owned by the famed vocalist and songwriter.  Trish formed a children's choir and served as Lead Director at an Atlanta church.  In 2004, she formed the gospel ensemble, AHAVA, which consisted of nine members who worshipped at various churches throughout the Atlanta area. In 2009, she released her first album entitled Introducing...Trish which was followed by her latest release, Redemption.  For more information about Trish Standley, log on to www.jansjoy.net.
