I have gotten so much wonderful feedback since the release of Fearless, my inspirational CD. Here are a few comments from my listening audience. - Claudia

Claudia is music with skin on, she provides her listening audience with journeys that traverse the interior sacred spaces, while lifting the heart.
-Rev. Toni G. Boehm, Ph.D. & author

 
When an artist is inspired, you can feel the emotion in their music. The lyrics and melody possess a richness, a depth that goes beyond the simple arrangement of notes.  You can feel the emotion in Claudia Carawan's music...her latest CD Fearless, is a masterpiece.    -Nancy Clark, author 


Fearless is vibrant and full of energy - production quality is so good I thought that I was listening to a major recording artist like Amy Grant. Claudia has star quality with a broad range of vocal ability, with perfect synchronicity between beat and content. Every cut is a cut above. I plan to keep this CD in my car. -Rev. Chris Chenoweth, PositiveChristianity.org


Claudia Carawan is one goose bump inducing singer/performer. I have had the pleasure of speaking in churches where she has been the singer and always find myself riveted from the first note to the last. The beauty and passion she brings to each song is an extension of herself, for this is how she lives..with full commitment to the wonder of each note arising in the song of her life. I feel honored to know and work with her. -John Maxwell Taylor, author


Hi Claudia:  I've been listening to your new CD. I really love it. I can't tell you how inspiring it is to me. I am a huge fan. And of course I can never forget how the Holy Spirit brought your music to me when I was in need. It brings tears to my eyes still whenever I think about it. It's kind of funny because I have been struggling with some things lately and here is a new CD to uplift my spirit. I am deeply grateful for your music. I can feel the Holy Spirit coming through it. Peace and love, -Dan C. Pennsylvania

Your concert Sun. evening was spectacular and I have been listening to your gorgeous CD ever since.  It is so inspiring and energizing and moving to me!  I appreciate so much how you have allowed Spirit to flow through you to create this gift for all of us.  From the title track to the oh-so-deeply-lovely "Legacy," I love every song.  Thank you for being "Fearless" and for helping us to be the same! - Karen H., Richmond, VA

Claudia: This is easily one of the best CD’s I have EVER listened to and NO you are not getting it back! Just tell me how much I owe you I don't have the words to express what I feel when I listen to these beautiful hymns.  I just know you have been blessed with a tremendous talent  and I love that you honor Him, the giver of all gifts, with your music. -Margo, Richmond, VA

Claudia: I have to say, I am not surprised at the beauty, love, and spirit in your CD but it is so amazing.  I don't want it to sound cliché, but it is so inspirational and kind.  You have done such a wonderful job on so many levels.  Thank you for your contribution to the Glory of God's Love.

... Impressed is not a good enough word....But your talent covers so many bases--writing, playing, and singing--that it's the whole package. Your songs are excellent, your voice and the way you use it are a wonder, and your production is outstanding. Congratulations on a fine piece of work, and letting your talent loose on the world for the rest of us to enjoy.
-Greg Tamblyn, Recording Artist

I could not let another day go by without telling you how fabulous your CD is. Wow! I have been blasting it in my car ....I’ve hit replay on "Everything I Need" so many times that I have it memorized. So excellent! -David Ault, Recording Artist, Author, Minister

Congratulations on a great project. It is my new favorite CD! Your voice is really awesome and you are a great songwriter too. I especially like your simple R&B style. It is refreshing to hear songs with depth and meaning in that genre. It was well produced and engineered. I'd play it next to any artist out there! -Richard Mekdeci, Recording Artist, President, ITOI Ministries - Various
