Special to the Daily World
Trish Standley loves sharing her spirited voice to inspire. With a gift to uplift, Standley’s heart reaches out to those who are hurting and broken. The desire to encourage was the impetus for her latest single, “Cheer Up”. A contagious praise track, “Cheer Up” is the perfect song for the opening of a Sunday morning service. Pulling lyrics directly from scripture, Trish inspires with this inspirational song. Reminiscent of classic Judith Christie McAllister, the song resonates strong praise with solid, background vocals and superb musicians, who bring a joyfulness to the track.
In addition to releasing her brand new single, the artist will be featured in the upcoming Airplay 360 Magazine. The brainchild of industry mover and shaker Ace Alexander, the publication focuses on informing indie gospel artists and preparing them for the gospel music industry. Trish will be highlighted in the online magazine’s May/June issue. The magazine can be viewed at http://www.airplay360.com. Also, on Thursday, May 10th, Standley will be a guest on Babbie’s House. The show, the brainchild of Christian vocalist Babbie Mason, highlights the talents of inspirational recording artists.
In addition to performing on Atlanta’s WATC-TV program, Trish will sit down with Mason to talk about her ministry. A future air date will be announced.
A native of Kokomo, Indiana, Trish began singing at her home church. Her songwriting career began when she took her mother’s poetry and put melody to it. Years later, after moving to Atlanta, she continued embracing her musical talents, and studied voice with Canangela Boyd-Robertson of Jan Smith Studios, owned by the famed vocalist and songwriter. Trish formed a children’s choir and served as Lead Director at an Atlanta church. In 2004, she formed the gospel ensemble, AHAVA, which consisted of nine members who worshipped at various churches throughout the Atlanta area. In 2009, she released her first album entitled Introducing…Trish which was followed by her latest release, Redemption.
