After seven years, award-winning singer/songwriter, Sheri LaFontaine has stepped back into the Daywind Recording Studio to record her 5th solo album-produced by Dove Award winner, Marty Funderburk and Sheri, herself. The album is set to be released in late November, just in time for Christmas. The CD is titled, Honest, which Sheri says comes from a deep place.
Sheri stated," This project is a celebration of embracing hope after a season of depression and loss. My Daddy passed away in January of this year. These songs come from a very vulnerable and honest place. that I hope people will relate to and be blessed by. "
Honest is a unique combination of original songs written by Sheri and a few covers, such as the Teddy Huffam's "I'm Rich," Kim Hopper's "Peace in the Midst of the Storm" and MercyMe's "Greater."
Sheri shares some exciting news about a song that will be coming to radio soon. "The Lord sent me a fun little song at the last minute, that I was able to co write with a friend from South Africa, Frank Naude. It will be the first single from the album and a duet with the amazing, Mitchel Jon." Most Southern Gospel fans know, Jon, from his days with Three Bridges and his appearances on the Gaither Homecoming videos.
