Allison communicates the Gospel in all she does, in mega-churches such as First Baptist Atlanta (Dr. Charles Stanley), The Brooklyn Tabernacle, First Baptist Orlando (Rev. Jim Henry), as well as small rural churches. She has also been a featured artist for many Bible study cruises with Charles Stanley and D. James Kennedy. She has also performed with evangelists Luis Palau, Bailey Smith, David Ring, and Johnny Hunt (First Baptist Church of Woodstock, GA). Her appearances on the Gaither Homecoming videos, The 700 Club, and The Trinity Broadcasting Network have left the nation wanting more of this incredible singer. Allison’s latest recording, “This Old House,” showcases the depths of her musical abilities and her passion for showcasing the Gospel with poetry. Her performance seems effortless but pushes you beyond the voice to allow you one to become intimate with the message. “This Old House” is packed with scripture and Bible stories. Allison says, “It is the best opportunity I’ve had to “re-present” the Gospel.” “My music is for people who need Jesus, and we ALL need Jesus. This one similarity overthrows all the politics of our differences. I’m learning that you can make a feast on a mustard seed of faith. So when I sing, I just welcome folks to the table.”
