 "Grace Notes is a phenomenal group! You get the WHOLE package. Not only do they bring the Word to life through song, they are also gifted lay preachers and worship leaders. Rarely do you see such a combination of faithful servants with so much talent in one group. I am inspired and my cup is filled every time I hear their melodious songs!" - Patti Zaiontz, Director, Mount Wesley Conference Center, Kerrville, Texas
