ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
As a Baptist preacher's daughter, Judi grew up singing in church with her family, the choir and various small group ensembles. She was a part of "The Kreation," a folk-gospel group in the 70's and recorded two albums with them. Flowers for the Master was her first solo album and it features the most requested songs from her lifetime of music ministry. The album features her family and friends as background vocalists and as musicians. It was a project compiled with love and devotion for her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

Judi was diagnosed with ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease) in February, 2017. ALS, or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. Once ALS starts, it almost always progresses, eventually taking away the ability to walk, dress, write, speak, swallow, and breathe and shortening the life span -- and, in Judi's case, her ability to sing. There is no cure for ALS. It is 100% fatal. The average lifespan after symptoms begin is 3 to 5 years.

Judi has a very strong faith. After her diagnosis, she said, "I know that God is able to heal me, but even if He doesn't, that's okay too. I know where I'm going."

Why record these particular songs? We went to Judi for the answers.

1. Thank You -- I always think of my daddy when I sing Thank You (for giving to the Lord.) He was my pastor my whole life and he truly did live the words that he preached from the pulpit. He had Alzheimer's the last few years of his life, but he never lost his sweet spirit and the ability to pray. He passed away April 18, 2016. This recording of Thank You was played at his memorial service. The background vocals are provided by Mary Ann Smith, Kelly Fowler, me and my brother, Jon Sorah.

2. The Anchor Holds -- This song means more to me now than it did when I recorded it and it meant so very much to me then. I like the line about holding my hopes and dreams in my hand, and then watching them disappear like sand. No matter what we are going through, we can depend on the Lord to be our anchor in the storm.

3. The Master of the Wind -- Yet another song of hope, no matter what storms come against us. I remember singing this in Venezuela during a mission trip in 1991. I fell in love with those precious people. Mary Ann Smith, Kelly Fowler, and my brother Jon Sorah helped me with the background vocals on this one too.

4. My God Is Real - I sang this song at the funeral of my sister-in-law's father. Becky Shamblin played piano, Brian Lee was on drums and Mike Pillow was on bass guitar.

5. When I Get Up to Heaven - This was originally a choir special at Calhoun First Baptist Church where my dad was pastor for 30 years. Kelly Fowler, my sister Jeanne McDowell, Becky Shamblin, and Mary Ann Smith are the other solo voices you hear on the verses. Calhoun First Baptist's choir, directed by Dr. Jean Eledge, join me on the choruses. My three children, Christina, Nathan and Ryan, are in the choir as well as my parents, Ron and Margaret Sorah, my brother Jon and my sister Jeanne.

6. Then I Met The Master - Another choir favorite from Calhoun First Baptist. My daughter Christina is the sweet voice joining me on the second verse. The choir sings the choruses.

7. Mary Did You Know - My son, Nathan, plays the classical guitar for this version of my new favorite Christmas song. Mary Ann Smith, Kelly Fowler and my brother Jon help me with background vocals.

8. The Blood Will Never Lose Its Power - My dad's most requested song for me to sing. Need I say more?

9. What Sin - The words of this song bring me such peace. "The heaviest thing you'll carry is a load of guilt and shame. You were never meant to bear them, so let them go in Jesus's name." Morgan Cryar actually allowed me to use his soundtrack for this song.

10 The Next Time He Comes - The next time He comes, He won't have to die for me. Isn't that something to rejoice about? Calhoun First Baptist choir backs me up on this one.

If there be any praise, it belongs to Him.
