Fifteen-year-old Rachael Lampa, who captured four Dove nominations this year and walked away holding the Dove for Inspirational Recorded Song, looked like a lovely Latin Diva at this year’s awards ceremony.
Recent high profile events for Rachael have included “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno”, an appearance on “The View with Barbara Walters”, and opening for pop group Boyz II Men in Philadelphia. Rachael’s promo tour for the first week of sales of Live For You was chronicled by TV’s “Entertainment Tonight” and CNN’s “Showbiz Daily”.
Rachael has appeared with The Pope at World youth Day, at Orlando’s Rock the Universe, on the 700 Club, at a Franklin Graham Crusade and at more than a dozen Brown Bag concerts sponsored by radio stations around the country throughout August.She has also garnered features in national teen magazines such as Teen People, Bop, Tiger Beat, Teen Style, and Seventeen. She can currently be seen touring with Plus One.
Rachael was also the subject of a review by Kurtis Kegley earlier this year:
Forget the comparisons, the age, Rachel Lampa can belt out the vocals in true diva style. Yes, Rachel is 15 years old and has just released LIVE FOR YOU, her first record of a major recording contract with WORD/SONY.
Rachel caught the attention of Word A&R Vice President, Brent Bourgeois (yes Brent, let’s have that new album now please!!) at the “Seminar at the Rockies” and was offered a record contract on the spot. Bourgeois assembled a “super group” of Christian songwriters including; Bourgeois, Cindy Morgan, Chris Eaton, and Chris Rodriguez, who spent several weeks in a rented house, creating the songs that would appear on LIVE FOR YOU.
Yes, the Contemporary Christian Music is starting to develop artists with a mainstream pop sound, however what is appealing about Lampa is her maturity and ministry focus; including targeting thousands of Churches and youth groups.
Rachel has already scored a number one single with the title track “Live For You”. The strongest tracks are: “Day of Freedom” a beautiful anthem about our unity in Christ. The upbeat simple message in the pop dance track “God Loves You”. “Shaken” an r&b funky jazzy groovy Gospel song about bringing revival into the world. The ballad, “Hide Me” should give you chills and instantly draw you into the presence of God & would be a great single pick. “My Father’s Heart” is a beautiful praise & worship song written by Chris Eaton and angelically sung by Rachel.
