Album: Say I Am Strong
Artist: Heidi Popp
"Musically this is a strong listen. Vocally, Popp would sit happily alongside a collection that included Celine Dion, Nicole C Mullen or even a Sandy Patty disc."
In A Word: Covered
Heidi Popp is new to the Australasian side of the world - even though she's been singing in churches since she was a pup.
Heidi is a pastor's kid who from the age seven knew she was destined to sing. Mostly known for her European tours, Heidi is now based in Australia with her hubby Johannes - who also doubles as producer and music team! - and rug rats and has produced Say I Am Strong as an introduction for new audiences here.
A collection of favourites, it reads like a Christian contemporary music classic hits playlist. There's some praise & worship influence with songs from Marth Munizzi (Because Of Who You Are) and Israel Houghton (Anyway). There's some great hit songs like Casting Crowns' Praise You In This Storm, Nicole C Mullin's Redeemer and Steven Curtis Chapman's His Strength Is Perfect.
Musically this is a strong listen. Vocally, Popp would sit happily alongside a collection that included Celine Dion, Nicole C Mullen or even a Sandy Patty disc.
Popp says of herself: ' I was born to sing, to make a difference, to be the light...even if with just one song at a time'.
