I hope 2018 was a wonderful year for you, as it was for myself and SVM. I have some exciting updates, some great opportunities, and some next steps for us as a team!
My song "I'm Alive" has been the focus of much of this year for me. The fall quarter led to so many wonderful open doors and new ideas. Keep reading to see some of the great things God has accomplished!
In November, I got the chance to meet with the head of the Woodlands United Methodist Church choir, as well as Grammy award winning artist Brad Sayles, who will be assisting with the recording efforts at the church.
The choir will record its part of "I'm Alive" on February 10 - all will be volunteering their time and talents. Prayers would be greatly appreciated for this process!
Recording my vocals for "I'm Alive" in Nashville with known engineer, Russ Long, who has worked with artists such as Newsboys, Amy Grant, and Sixpence None the Richer.
Calah Paulo, who is an FFR long-term volunteer (and my music buddy) as well as Jay Cogley, my drummer, joined in the music video filming at the historic Brainerd Church and Schoolhouse in Sugarloaf, PA!
A new logo has been created for Sarah Vienna "I'm Alive" (pictured below)! Merchandise featuring the logo will be available for sale and proceeds will go back into the project. For more information or to pre-order shirts and other merchandise, contact email@example.com
With the funds that have come in, the song has been recorded, with vocals and instruments, and a professionally-filmed music video has been made which will be debuted in early spring. SVM is currently discussing marketing plans for "I'm Alive" with C.E.O, a global art and entertainment engine, based out of Nashville. The mission and vision of C.E.O. is to "connect purpose and art to positively impact culture."
We are so thankful for all the prayers, donations, and time our supporters have put into this project! I appreciate each one of you.
One of my favorite ways to inspire humanity is to reach out to high school students and share about the value of volunteering as well as encourage growing talents! SVM was blessed by the opportunity to sing and share at Immanuel Christian School in Hazleton, PA.
Leading worship for me is always an uplifting, joyful experience, especially when playing with the SVM Band at River Mountain Chapel in Hazleton, PA. Check out our worship version of "You Are So Beautiful."
You may remember that a radio interview happened in Germany in November - what a fabulous opportunity to share our mission and my song "Unwanted"! Click here to listen.

Be on the lookout in the next couple of months for the video teaser of "I'm Alive." Ask your churches, schools, groups, and Sunday Schools for opportunities for Sarah Vienna to sing and share!
We are also looking for sponsorship for marketing of "I'm Alive." Please contact me for more information.
