Country singer gave heart to Lord



This is in response to the article written by Don Rhodes in the July 8 "Applause" section, regarding the rich, talented women performers in country music.

I can fill in a very exciting history for you in the case of Becky Cowart. In the early 1990s, Ms. Cowart gave her heart to the Lord. Since that time she and her husband Ron, along with their daughter Brooke, have been traveling the roads singing gospel music under the name, "Christian Harmony."

She is also the music director for Bible Deliverance Temple, where she leads the adult choir and her biggest passions, the youth choir and "Evermore," the youth praise team.

She is still as talented as she's ever been, but now she sings with more drive and purpose, because she personally knows who she sings about: Jesus Christ.
