Making Music That Matters



Congratulations Shirli L. Hughes and Ovation! on a successful CD project. The Encouragement Project CD is a unique blend of voices both speaking and singing. The words themselves are encouraging with the music being incredibly uplifting. Every time I listen to your CD – which is a lot – I am touched by it’s simple and sincere message. Thank you, and keep up the good work!


Congrats!!! The Encouragement Project truly is one of the finest, brilliant, exciting, and inspiring albums to join our library.,The song “Just one question” All I can say is high praise. A scripture comes to mind that really resonate (to relate harmoniously:,strike a chord) when listening to your CD project, John 16:33"I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world."


Wonderful performance!!! Beautiful music truly enjoyed the concert!!!! A blessing for my heart thank you. Enjoying the CD while driving. I wish you much success and will continue to love and support Ovations!!!!


The song that spoke to me the most is "They that Wait." It reminds me of my Mom and reassures me that she will be in a better place soon. It also has comforted me during a very difficult time as my mom has eminent terminal cancer. God gives us music to comfort and heal us all.

(Shae’s mom passed away on June 4, 2014. The Ovation family continues to lift up Shae and her family in our prayers.)


My favorite song on the CD is "Just One Question." I like it for several reasons. First of all, it's just a beautiful song and I really enjoy singing it. Secondly, it's a song that speaks to a universal audience. Anyone can see themselves in a situation where they have to explain their faith and I think this song does it profoundly. And lastly, its message has made it one of the songs that my 20 year old daughter looks forward to hearing us sing. I'm always happy when the younger generation can appreciate music I consider to be of better quality than what they listen to on the radio!


When you listen to this CD, I hope you will feel the same encouragement and joy that I received in being a part of this project. I hope this encouragement and joy pours out so, as you listen, your day can become just a little brighter - for, no matter what is going on in your life, know you are loved, and that God is with you - loving you, always and forever. May this bring you peace - God's peace - a peace like none other.
