Ever Awesome One
Clara Riggleman is a dynamic worship leader whose unique style and enthusiasm compels people to worship. Known for her passionate and intimate worship, she inspires everyone around her. She is also an exceptional communicator and motivator. Clara authentically connects people to God through worship by the simplicity of her love for God, her unrestrained zeal and her uncontainable joy. "Ever Awesome One" is Clara's first solo project. It has been a dream in her heart for more than 15 years. The songs were birthed as a result of her quest and desperation for Jesus! The finest musicians and singers gave of themselves to create the project. This recording captures the vivid sound of worship that is rising up today. As the music was recorded, the sweet presence of God filled the studio as heaven's kiss sealed our worship. "Your Love," the last song, is a reflection of God's love. Only the love of the Father can set us free from rejection, insecurity and fear; therefore, Clara's sincere prayer is that the music on this CD will draw you into His presence and that you will know His gentle touch. This project has been saturated with much prayer. From it's conception, intercessors touched heaven by laboring in prayer for God to bless and use this CD for His glory. It contains great songs that will inspire you to worship. 'My heart's cry is this: when you listen to the music, you will experience a deep revelation of God's love and a fresh passion to pursue Him wholeheartedly,' Clara.
