31 year-old, Phoenix-based singer-songwriter JJ Heller found herself in the forefront of Christian music in 2009 after a contestant on the FOX show “So You Think You Can Dance?” used Heller’s song “Your Hands” for an audition. A few short weeks after the show aired, “Your Hands” was making its way up the Billboard Charts, as well as into the hearts of listeners across the country. Heller’s follow-up single, “What Love Really Means,” assured her listeners that she had more to say. Her live acoustic performances with her husband, co-writer and guitarist, Dave, can be light hearted, inspiring, entertaining, heartbreaking, and often unforgettable. JJ has a way of naming the unnamable and casting light into the dark corners of the heart. Her goal is to speak hope into the lives her listeners.
Karrington Spann is currently a sophomore at Oklahoma Baptist University in Shawnee Oklahoma. She is majoring in Elementary Education. She spent her childhood growing up as a missionary kid on the island of Madagascar with her family of six. There she grew in her tree climbing skills, her ability to bargain, and her love for Jesus Christ. She hopes to someday influence the lives of elementary students both in the United States and overseas and climb Mount Kilimanjaro.
