Debbies music draws you into a place that many people need to be drawn to. It is as if God is sending a message through her music to all of those that haven't listened before to HIS words, that haven't felt the wonderful feeling HE can give you if you if you just believe. Her music reaches deep down into your heart and soul, then raises you up to a high that is the best high a person could ever have !!!

We had a wonderful time with Debbie Rice and her band Friday night. Debbie was such a sweet, precious and humble women. It was incredible to hear all the songs she wrote from her own heart and her own experiences on her journey with God and to freedom. She ministered and shared wonderful testimonies of what God had done along the way. Satan really tried to mess the night up by messing with their sound equipment and delaying the evening, but thank God for back up equipment. He was defeated and the night went on and was great! Thank you Jesus!
