Iris has been writing songs since her teens and majored in voice at McLennan Community and Lamar University. She wrote her first Christian song on a Youth bus headed to Abilene from Six Flags, where there had been a Youth rally. As others in the group encouraged her to write a Christian song, she opened her bible to Romans 12:1-2, She mostly sang harmony, so she taught the group a harmony song for the music, then began to sing the scriptures.
The annual contest is open from October 1 through Nov. 30 to anyone age 15 and over. Please review the rules here on our website and submit your entries!
Annual Workshop will be held in March 2017. Watch this space for more information later.
