Trishell Ruiz - Praise On Purpose
UPC: 8-04879-07032-0
SRP: $14.99

Trishelle's heart for worship began at an early age. Trishelle began singing as a toddler where she was brought up singing Southern Gospel. Her current sound is definitely a departure from the more traditional sound of that genre.

Trishell is a former member of the female vocal trio "UpSyde". They had recorded three projects together. As a member of UpSyde, Trishelle had the opportunity to tour the U.S. and Europe. A talented writer and producer, Trishelle wrote, arranged and produced for all three projects.

Gleaning from some of her greatest influences or worship leaders such as Pastor Clint Brown and Fred Hammond, Trishelle began recording what is now her debut solo release "Praise On Purpose" in early 2007. Upon first listen, you'll note that Trishelle has a way of engaging the hearts of individuals to enter into God's presence with complete abandonment of self. Praise On Purpose is written from the heart of a worshipper to the hearts of God's worshippers.


Krystal Diaz - Passion
UPC: 8-04879-07012-2
SRP: $11.99

Krystal Diaz has a confidence and strength that defines and sets her apart from her peers. The smooth, sultry sound of this American-born Puerto Rican & Guatemalan teen will simply leave you speechless. She has a powerful and natural vocal style that captivates the listener and melts hearts. Being fluent in both Spanish and English sets the stage for an extensive listening audience.

With the release of her debut CD project entitled "Passion", Krystal is stepping out as an influence to her generation.
