Born from her own life’s struggles, this track is more than a nice tune encouraging listeners to join her in lifting the names of our Heavenly Father and His beloved Son, but is the battle cry of every war-weary soldier standing for Christ in the face of adversity. Having been taught the importance of praising the Most High throughout trials by her mother, Rebekah was able to exercise that faith firsthand when, at the young age of 28, she suffered a stroke as a result of a hole in her heart. While dealing with the aftermath of that, she was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS). During all of the testing and treatments to manage this chronic disease of the central nervous system, she lost sight in her right eye.
Although many people would have slipped into a deep depression or would have begun asking why they were being afflicted with just one of these issues, but rather than succumb to self-pity and doubt, Rebekah turned to the Father and began giving Him her highest praise. Armed with the mighty weapon of praise, she began her road to recovery.
Fortunately for her, praise and worship were already deeply rooted in her soul. Having began singing at the age of four, her strong alto voice and dedication to music as a ministry led her to becoming a leader for praise and worship groups. In addition to staying active in this role, she is also the choir director for a Dallas-based church.
In addition to her working in the music ministry with Rob, her husband of 12 years and bass guitarist, Rebekah is also a busy stay-at-home wife with a beautiful son whom they adopted. Rebekah is definitely someone to keep an eye on in the gospel music arena.
