WORSHIPSINGING FOR THE ULTIMATE AUDIENCE OF ONE
Singing authentic worship is better than singing anything else to a crowd of 100,000. I believe that because I’ve done both. – Kim Snyder
As a personal worshiper as well as someone who has been privileged to lead large crowds in worship at festivals and in churches, I have a special passion for teaching singers in the church learn how to move beyond vocal obstacles to authentic worship.
That passion was solidified after a 2 year struggle to recover from a near death experience after becoming severely septic. After over a year of not being able, or allowed to speak and told I would never sing again I watched God heal my body and my voice. And I realized that He had been preparing me years earlier by driving me to develop the training that would eventually help me regain my voice when specialists couldn’t.
Now, being able to worship out loud means more to me than ever before. And having the tools to help other singers remove their vocal obstacles to do the same has been the most rewarding work of my life.
