It's A New Day
Pamela’s first CD, It's a New Day, is a combination of gospel styles - country, southern gospel and comtemporary. It was nominated as album of the year by the International Country Gospel Music Association. She was honored to recieve the award for ICGMA Female Horizon artist of 2011.
The album features eleven original songs that she has written over the years. The first song on the CD, God Never Fails, was written when she was 18 years old, the day her boyfriend was killed in a car accident. The message in this song has carried her through many trials.
The prayer she prayed while writing " Give me Compassion" changed her life. It took her into a ministry that would take her out of her comfort zone and into a world of hurting people. It was nominated as top single of 2011 by the ICGMA.
The title song -" It’s a New Day" was written for a graduation ceremony for a young man that had earned his high school diploma while he was incarcerated in TYC. He is now in medical school.
"You’re the One" was co-written with her mother for her daughter Joda's wedding. He definitely was the one! Joda and her husband Josiah have been married 17 years and have four beautiful children.
"Moving On" was the song God gave her when she was struggling with the decision whether or not to leave her chaplain's position with the Texas Youth Commission. Transition is always scary.
"I Cry" reached the #3 spot on Nashville's PowerSource magazine's country gospel charts . "Where I'm At " won 2nd place in a Nashville songwriters competion.
This is simply an overview of a few of the anointed songs on this CD. Each song has a message and story attached to it. The lyrics are wrapped around the life she has lived.
