When you spend time with shelia you begin to understand the subtle intensity of her music. "Music is a ministry, and its my ministry," and it was this passion and conviction that inspired Shelia Moore Piper to deliver her current release "Are You Ready Chapter 2". Abody of music that is inviting,reflective, and encompasses a universal messgae of worship self love, and hope.
Piper deals with these themes directly and with endless finesse. Her voice is soulful, feminine, and guided by her impeccable ear and good taste. Her range is exceeded only by her precision. she is never guilty of being showy, or of oversouling. "Are You Ready" stretches over a variety of styles, utlizing jazz and soul undertones, often dealing in groovy offerings of funk with smatterings of Motown and disco, and occasionally visiting the hip-hop genre. All in all, the record is exceptional listening, incredibly well orchestrated and produced, and represents a fantastic introduction for the public to this astounding, Christian Soul singer.
Piper says, The "Are You Ready" Project is awesome because of the magnitude of what it speaks. It just doesn't speak only to a collective body of people but it makes you examine yourself and your personal relationship with "Jesus Christ The Lord."
As an artist i want my music to uplift and inspire. through the years the sound of gospel music has evolved to speak to new generations Shelia shares however, the message remains the same; Jesus is the way, truth, and light. It is my desire that all people know Jesus Christ perfects that which concerns us, and to encourage everyone to build a strong spiritual connection to the higher power that is he.
Shelia adds, "One of the truths that remains close to my heart is taken from the Book of Mark,"... Who do men say I am? The disciples said "John The Baptist", others say Elias; and others say "One of the Prophets". And Jesus asked them (individually) "But who do "You" say I am? I agree with Peter who said: "You are the Christ, Son of the living God."
