Val Halloran: I Had No Idea

Val Halloran's music is unique among Christian songs today. Val's music has the ability to draw the human soul to the throne of God like few other song writers can. As she pours her heart out to the Lord through her music and her heartfelt prayers fill the lyrics of each song, the listener is gently drawn along with her into His presence and will not walk away unaffected. As a busy mother with a wealth of life experiences and her faith put to the test many times, Val has written songs that inspire the greatest of Christian characteristics and faith. Through the simplicity of music, she gives the weary a chance to rest and gain strength to lift up their cross and walk once more.

In the songs Val has written, she tackles the down-to-earth issues which confront people on a daily basis. The hard, often heart wrenching issues that we all struggle with and cry over; the ones that make us want to give up, or isolate us in our loneliness. Through her own personal experience and her faith in God, Val's musical gifts have resulted in songs that everyone can relate to on a personal level. This is what reaches out to the listener and draws them - the ability to comfort, soothe, encourage and give a stronger, deeper faith where it had been stretched thin before.

A mother of five children who are six years old and under sums up Val's special ability so well:

"I am the mother of 5 little ones and have been so weary and exhausted with daily struggles for the past year. I was feeling like such a failure and wondering how I could manage to keep going on. I felt almost too tired to pray, so I asked the Lord to help me. Someone shared your music with me a few days ago...when I listened to your song "God Says They're Gifts" the first time I felt as though the Lord Himself was speaking and encouraging me. I listened over and over and broke down crying. It almost felt like the Lord had His hand on my shoulder, comforting and loving me. My attitude and outlook were transformed instantly and I felt refreshed and firm in my conviction that the Lord would help me as I seek to serve Him in all things. Your music has been a great blessing to me. I still don't know if I have listened yet without tears in my eyes!" Everyone, everywhere, in all walks of life will be blessed by Val's songs"

Leilani Clark: Never Say Goodbye

 

Val says of Lani's CD,

"I have counted it an extreme privilege and honor to participate in ministry with the Clark family. I first met the Clark family- Leilani, her brother, Tim, her mother, Victoria and her father, Dan Clark in 1997, when 'Lani' was only 10 years old. Even at that young age, Leilani had an incredibly mature and beautiful voice. Leilani appeared on the national radio broadcast of "A Prairie Home Companion" at the age of 12 and took first place in their "Talent from Towns Under Two Thousand" contest. For her closing song, she sang a song that Dan, Donald Johns (our producer) and I had collaborated in writting entitled, "I'm Amazed". Lani's angelic voice and pure spirit captured the hearts of almost 2 million listeners and inspired the show's host to have her back on the show the following year, where she once again sang one of our collaborated songs entitled, "Keeper of My Heart" (which has been recorded on both of our CD's) . Her appearance on national radio has given Lani many more singing opportunities in which she shares her love for the Lord and her devotion to use her talent for His glory.

"Leilani's father, Dan worked as a musician/arranger at Starlight studios in Lake City, FL, where I was privileged to record two albums. With similar tastes in music as well as goals for ministry, it didn't take long to realize that the Lord had orchestrated our partnership in songwriting. Over the next several years, before the Lord took Dan to heaven in Sept of 06, we collaborated in writing songs that were recorded on either my, Lani's, or both of our cd's.

"Dan was not only a talented songwritier, but was also an amazing musician, singer and arranger. I am often amazed when I reflect on what a blessing it has been to me that the Lord allowed me the opportunity to work with such a gifted musician. And as if that wasn't enough, to have his equally talented daughter, Leilani, record songs that I collaborated in writing with her father, has been a blessing beyond what 'I could ever ask or even think' (Eph 3:20-21) God is so good! Dan had only finished the instrumentation for 8 of the 12 songs on Leilani's CD, "We Will Never Say Goodbye", when the Lord suddenly took him home in a drowning accident. Though Dan's passing was heart-breaking and tragic, the words of the songs and other events surrounding Dan's homegoing and the recording of this album have been a constant reminder to those of us who still miss Dan greatly, that God is in complete control of every event of our lives. We know that God is and will continue to use this loss for good and for His honor and glory, especially through the rich musical legacy that Dan left to us through Leilani's album. It is my prayer that as listeners hear these songs and consider the messages contained in them, that they will be encouraged to press on in their walk with the Lord, even when hope and strength seem to be running out. God's promises never fail and in His time, He works everything for good to those that love Him. (Rom 8:28)"
