I am extremely honored to be nominated for the 2017 Detroit Music Awards!!! 🙂 The Award Ceremony will be on May 5th, 2017 at the Fillmore in Detroit! As many of you know, I won 2 awards in 2004: Outstanding Christian Vocalist and Songwriter. I have since then, received nominations in 2005, 2015, & 2016. This year, I am excited to be nominated with my friend, Catherine Zardus, owner of Magic Carpet Theatre, and a very talented writer/lyricist and actress. This is the first song I have ever recorded with my classical guitar and I love the beautifully mellow sound. I got the Dauphin classical guitar in 1981. I hadn’t played it in a couple of decades and I don’t think I had ever changed the strings, but it was in almost perfect tune! I was afraid to change the strings because it sounded so nice, so I went with it as it was. One string broke the day after the recording! Whew! 🙂
Here are our 2017 nominations…
Outstanding Gospel/Christian Recording
Amy Susan Heard & Catherine Zardus “I feel You, Lord”
Outstanding Gospel/Christian Songwriter
Amy Susan Heard & Catherine Zardus
This song is from our first Magic Carpet Theatre drama ministry CD of one of our shows, “At His Feet, Women In Scripture.” It includes “Amazing Grace,” 3 more original songs, 3 wonderful scenes and 6 meditational readings from scripture.
