How are things going? I thought I would just stop by to say hi and introduce myself to some new friends. My name is Kristyn Murphy and I am a 16 year old soprano from Maine USA. I released a sacred CD that was recorded when I was 15 in 2006. Hmmm what else?... Oh I love to perform...lol...that is my # 1 love. I sing, dance, play piano, act...I do a lot. I'm keeping busy with a few new projects and hope to record some more songs for you sometime in the near future. If you would like to take a peak at my official website just click on www.kristynmurphy.com!
I love hearing all of your latest and greatest news so please come, join the fun and post! I'll try to keep you updated as well!
What can I say? WOW, what a voice, that's what! :applaud: Your CD arrived recently and it is even better than the clips I have seen and heard of you. The power of your voice compels the listener not only to listen but to accept the message that you were born to convey. The selection of songs is surely perfect for you and every one of them was performed to perfection.
Sooner or later, someone may comment that 'You raise Me Up' has been overdone. I don't agree. It is a magnificent work that deserves to be recorded by as many people as are willing to sing it. Every interpretation is different and your version is as good as any.
I like the fact that the only accompaniment was that of a piano. For a memento CD, that was perfect but slightly more variety would be preferable for a commercial release. My only slight criticism is that your voice and the piano seemed to be competing with one another for supremacy. The piano could have been taken down just that tiny bit. Despite that, every word was crystal clear and I don't think I can say that about any other CD in my entire collection.
I feel privileged to have 'To the Glory of God' in my collection. May it be the first of many that you record.
Take care, Kristyn, and good luck for your future.
PS. Chantelle, I have received confirmation that your CD has been shipped but it hasn't arrived yet. It should only be a matter of days now.
Yes, your CD was definitely worth the wait; I just wish you hadn't kept me waiting though. I'm not as young as you, ya know!
It is always difficult to select a favourite track from any album and, whatever I say today, will probably change by next week. But, as I know you are pressing me for a decision (don't ask me how I know, I just do!), I will say 'To The Glory Of God' and 'You Raise Me Up'. Yeah, I know that's two. I told you I would change my mind - I just didn't expect it to happen before I finished the sentence!
You picture is lovely and it is not too big for the forum. Actually, it is perfect, just like your CD.

Hahah Do your favorites always chance that fast?
So what has everybody been up to? I'm sitting in my back massaging chair typing this...haha it is amazing. Today I will be working on putting together a new concert program! I will also work on a scholarship entry. In February I will be traveling out of state to perform and have a radio interview. That should be fun!
Well, that's all I guess. I really need to practice piano and clean my room today! Post soon!And tell all of your friends to drop by the forum and say hi!
God Bless Kristyn
PS I am making some updates on my website...in a few days there should be new photos and some new info. etc.
