"Broken & Blessed"

When GOD Says MOVE......GOD is moving you in directions you could not have imagined. HE will continue to move you and BLESS you in ways only you will truly know and understand. Continue to minister in song and MOVE your audiences and follow your heart!

"Simply Georgeous!!!!!"

The voice, the Anointing, the conviction, all can be heard and felt immediately upon hearing Carmen sing! Speaking with her, left a lasting impression of speaking to a daughter of the Most High God. You know? One of His! Those kind of family members seemed to always act, speak, think with skill, wisdom, joy, excitment, and words of grace - Tim Wicks @ WNAP

""A Blessing""

This is one of the most versitile CD's I heard in a long time. I can find so many songs that I enjoy but Secret Place may be my favorite. I think Carmen has International appeal and I think her music should be heard all over the world. If you don't pick this CD up you don't know what your missing. Broken and Blessed is a must for listening pleasure and you may here God speak thur these wonderful songs.
