Song Of The Soul
Song of the Soul invites you to a soul-level encounter. Music has the ability to proclaim the soul's language beyond what mere words can speak. That's what we seek as we invite our guests to share their Song of the Soul. You will hear the music that has charted the steps of their spiritual journey, that has provided a touchstone in the soul's dark night, and sung the hearts awe and joy when come to the Light. As you listen to Song of the Soul, you are both witness and companion to our guest's spiritual path and sacred testimony.

Song of the Soul guests provide about 25 minutes of the music that speaks of their spiritual path, beliefs or journey, and Mark Helpsmeet explores with them the relevance and meaning of this music to their experience. Some guests are musicians, perhaps sharing their own music, but most guests are simply sharing music they've been impacted by, written and performed by others.

The theme song for this program is by Cris Williamson and is called Song of the Soul. Please check out the wealth of great music Cris has gifted to the world.

I happen to run into Annabella Wood here in Reading, PA at a Unity Church Service yesterday. Her music touched me a great deal and I purchased a her current CD and asked her for her card where I got her website and. consequently, this interview/performance. I am moved by her story, her singing and her song writing. Thanks for providing her the platform on which to meet many others of the mystery and quest for spiritual truths. Bob

I actually think it's pretty good. This girl should be on the Ellen DeGenerus Show singing that Truck Driven Mama song. Annebella has much to offer and a good future a head of her. She will go far. I will keep her in my prayers.

Glad to hear you are recovering, sorry there is more surgery in your future. It is nice to hear you doing so well emotionally/spiritually. It sounds like God has blessed you with great Spiritual pinnacles to get you through some major challenges. The new arrangement for Prisioer was Right On. Best wishes on your journey... I will hold you in a healing light... God Bless!

This program is so rich. The host asked great questions of Annabella, and Annabella answered from a deep place of spirit, of connection with herself and of life. The music you featured fit the interview beautifully. I am honored to know Annabella.
