Produced by GRAMMY-nominated, Dove Award-winning Michael Farren, Alisa Turner inextricably weaves her very personal story of grief and suffering with hope and redemption through unfettered, unfiltered worship.
For Turner, who has battled the debilitating effects of Lyme Disease since childhood, music has always been her connection point with God.

I leave different knowing He sees me, He is with me. He is my hope.”
That hope shines through each track on her EP, including “My Prayer For You,” the project’s first radio single, which was penned by Farren.
