"Vocal Training Seminar"

Shelley Harris' Vocal Training Seminar was a real boost to our worship team. Shelley covers the basics of vocal technique in a manner that is easy for the untrained vocalist to grasp. Participants thought it well worth their time and are now asking for a second workshop.

"RTG music"

Shelley Harris sung on numerous sessions that I've produced, both as featured soloist and as background singer.

She is a superb singer with excellent range, pitch and ability to blend. As a soloist, she can sing "straight" (MOR) or soulfully. Perhaps most important, she's extremely smart as a studio singer; she has what I call studio savvy, which makes her a pleasure to work with. She reads well, has perfect pitch and takes direction very well.

I've worked with great singers in Chicago, New York, L.A., Dallas and Nashville. Shelley is among the best.

"Women's Conference Worship Leader"

We have had the privilege of being ushered into the very "Throne Room of God" by the Sweet Power Worship Band. Their name is quite indicative of their purpose. They present themselves with the love and sweetness of Jesus Christ, the power of the Holy Ghost, and true worship that is only given to God, our Almighty Father....
Because of His Love,

"Church Concert"

Dear Phil & Shelley,
You, your husband and daughter really gave us a mighty concert last Wednesday night. You are so gifted and I know that many people were really blessed.... Frankly, I wish I were taking you with me to Washington D.C. for the little mini-evangelistic crusade that yours truly is going to conduct.

.... You all are humble people and you have a wonderful anointing and I hope we can get you back here again soon.

En agape',

"James Robison"

It is with great excitement that I recommend Shelly Harris to you. She is an outstanding singer with great versatility in vocal style. She is also an anointed and sensitive worship leader.

We have been privileged to have her as lead singer in our backup ensemble at the 1988 and 1989 James Robison Bible Conferences. Our ministry has benefited by her skills in singing, at he the keyboard, with live television, and in the recording studio. She has been invaluable to everyone involved including the technicians, singers, instrumentalists, engineer, and producer.

Shelly is very knowledgeable about every aspect of music ministry. She could bless your people and enrich your ministry as a concert artist or clinician with your praise and worship ensemble.

God bless you.

"Worship and Personal Reference"

Dear Shelley,

I am writing this letter to affirm my confidence in your ministry and your relationship with Jesus. I have worked with you many times and known you for over 20 years....I love your sense of humor, your worshipping heart and your desire to know and follow the Lord.... For many years of worship leading, singing in concerts and studio work, you have demonstrated a skill and excellence in your music. But much more important than that, you, yourself, know how to worship and you know how to bring others with you into the Throne also are able to teach on worship and other spiritual topics. I certainly recommend your ministry to other churches.

"Worship Leader/Concert Artist (recommendation letter)"

To Whom It May Concern-
I thank God for the day that I was introduced to Shelley Harris. She has all the obvious tools you want in a worship leader: extraordinary, polished musicianship, a voice that won't quit, a rich experience in the industry without being jaded by it. This makes her equally at home on a concert stage as on a worship platform.

She is a born entertainer and blesses those who listen to her sing one song or an entire set. But additionally, she brings a heart that is open to God in the moment. She has an ear for the Spirit and a burning desire to help others join their voices with His in meaningful worship.
