Julia Ann Gardner

       Julia Ann Gardner was born in New York City, NY but grew up in South Carolina. Ms. Gardner began singing as a child at churches in the South and continued upon her return to New York City where she's a member of THE VOICES OF PRAISES at THE FIRST BAPTIST CHURCH in East Elmhurst, NY She's also a mother (one child) and retired postal clerk who loves sewing, gardening and relaxing with a good
book. But, whatever she's doing, she's always singing.

       After the 9/11 tragedy she was inspired to write the songs for her debut record "MESSAGE" (JuliandMusic). The songs "ALWAYS REMEMBER" and "SPIRIT OF AMERICA" were composed as the search for survivors and victims began. Ms. Gardner remembers that this was a time when all America joined together in pain and sorrow but was united in SPIRIT.

       The hope of Julia Ann Gardner is that every listener will also be inspired to live their dream, find their purpose in life and work and rejoice in the giving of joy and happiness to others. For it's truly up to us to rise and make a difference in the world.
