When I'm with You
Greetings, I'm so very pleased to be able to share this new re-release of this 'inspired' 3rd Album, 'When I'm With You'. There is a whole new anointing on this album. It's been waiting all this time for the Lord's Time and it has finally happened! The reports we are getting of the hearts and lives that are being touched through these blessed songs from the Heart of the Lord to a hurting world, are just incredible! And, that is what it is all about. Allowing the Lord to bless and giving Him All of the Glory! Newly digitally re-mastered, 'When I'm With You' was originally recorded between 1979 and 1990 with a fantastic group of now very well-known musical friends such as Rick Krive, Ed Calle, Reed Arvin, Teri DeSario, Jorge Casas, Peter Graves and many others! The acoustic authenticity is there as you hear all of the 'live' instruments and an intimate vocal setting. I hope that this glorious music blesses you and encourages you to know that you are not alone in this world, that the Lord will never leave you or forsake you and that He died to set us free! Joy and Blessings, Cathy Website: www.efmproductions.com Brief Bio: Cathy Ellis has been a believer since 1972 and has had hit songs out there since 1978 beginning with 'Child', which was the number one Contemporary Gospel Song on the National Gospel Charts that year.

About the songs: Background Accompaniment Tracks and Sheet Music for all of these songs is at our website, www.efmproductions.com. Some of these songs were Nominated for Billboard Awards and for Grammys. Even though this is nice, the most important thing is that hearts and lives are touched for and by the Lord through these songs. Be blessed! Track 1: 'BUILDING ONE STEP AT A TIME' The symbol of building a house equated to building your Faith. This song is also on Kyle Bielfield's Album, 'In My Father's House'. This is the composer's original performance. Track 2: 'WE ARE LEARNING' A Children friendly song, recorded with children, this song tells us that we are always learning! It's a fun song! Track 3: 'THIS MAN WE CALL JESUS' This song was 'inspired' to the composer on Easter Sunday, 1974. Cathy sang it in concert with Andre Crouch and recorded it in 1979. It was well received on radio stations around the country and continues to be to this day! Kyle also recorded this song on his album, 'In My Father's House', available here at CDBaby.com. Track 4: 'WHERE WOULD I GO?' The flip side of the original single with 'This Man We Call Jesus'. 'Where Would I Go?' tells it like it is. If the Lord wasn't there, who would we have to turn to? Track 5: 'COMMUNION SONG' This song is so beautiful and perfect to play or sing during Communion. Nancy Haywood also has recorded a gorgeous version of this song, with solos by Ed Calle, on her album, 'Brand New World!'. Nancy's CD is also available here at CDBaby.com. Track 6: 'JESUS, I DESIRE YOU' We all should want to know and please the Lord more in our lives! The Scripture says that when a person's ways please the Lord, He makes even our enemies to be at peace with us. This is a love song to Jesus! Track 7: 'WHEN I'M WITH YOU' This beautiful love song is from the New Musical 'Abraham & Sarah'. This rendition is from the original stage production where Cathy portrayed 'Sarah' opposite Dick Sterling's 'Abraham'. Track 8: 'WILL I EVER HAVE THAT CHANCE, NOW?' This song is also from the New Musical 'Abraham & Sarah', where Sarah has been taken captive in King Abimelech's Palace and doesn't know whether she will ever see her Abraham again. This song was recorded by England's Celia Lipton and was nominated for a Grammy. Nancy Haywood, 'Sarah' in the film version now in production sings this song, too. You can hear her singing this song on Youtube and Godtube from the Concert Version in which she also starred.

Also from 'Abraham & Sarah', the stage production, we can all relate to this song, especially when the Lord reminds us that He's doing a New Thing in each of our lives! Track 10: 'WE ARE ONE' When we all come together in unity, WE ARE ONE!. This song is a big hit with choirs and churches!
