Tricia has just released her first, and long awaited, self-titled album. All original songs, this album is an eclectic mix that reflects Tricia's love for many genres of music. In it you will find the catchy worship tune You Are that was chosen to be included on The Worshiper Access Vol. 2 CD. This CD is put out annually along with the magazine, The Worshiper. Tricia's love for gospel music is also represented on her new album with Coming Closer and Lift Him Up. In the touching song Fly, she expresses her heart for her daughter, and other young women, to find freedom in knowing who she is in Christ. Several worship songs well-up deep emotion and desire for God. They are an obvious demonstration of Tricia's heart for worship and an excellent completion of this album.
The CD release party is scheduled for June 1st, 2007 - 7 p.m. at Quail Valley Church Youth Center.
