Two and a half years ago I transitioned back into a more musical role in life as a Pastor of Music at a church (www.valleyviewalliance.com). Not being particularly up on all the latest and greatest writers and songs to be sung in a church that wanted to be “cutting edge” in its style I began searching the web for a web based service that would let me legally access lead sheets to worship songs at a reasonable price. As an artist it meant something to me that the artisits were getting appropriately paid for their work.
To my surprise I found a great service, which has only become better, named www.praisecharts.com. They have had some struggles with the big companies removing songs from their catalogue because of buyouts or such like but still have some sort of exclusive arrangement with Integrity and have Hillsongs etc.
Through the amazing support and benovolence of a friend and now benefactor I was able to record a worship CD I am incredibly pleased with. Song samples and CD cover and sales at www.cliffcline.com. Moreover, I discovered early on that PraiseCharts is owned by a friend of mine from youth and from University! All that to say, my charts will be for sale online at PrasieCharts in the New Year!! Merry Christmas.
