Speaker(s): 

Jennifer Williamson
AriSon Records

From the moment she was born, Jennie Williamson grew up on the front row of the church. Her father, a full-time minister of music in the church, was very inspirational to her as she watched him lead numerous rehearsals each week. As she listened to the uplifting music and saw how it was put together with such beautiful harmonies and creative arrangements, it inspired her passion for Christian music.
