Twila Paris

Known among fans as "the modern-day hymnwriter," Twila Paris was among contemporary inspirational music's most prolific singers and composers. A native of Arkansas, her grandparents were itinerant preachers, holding outdoor revival meetings and planting churches; her grandmother even wrote songs for use at evangelistic meetings. Paris' father was himself a musician, as well as the leader of an area youth mission; a life of religion and music was seemingly her destiny, and indeed she enjoyed great success as a performer, earning comparison to the legendary Fanny Crosby for her contributions to latter-day hymnody, with songs like "We Will Glorify," "Lamb of God," "How Beautiful" and "Faithful Men" included in millions of hymnals in churches across the globe. Recognized as among the most popular "praise and worship" artists of her generation, Paris also published In the Sanctuary, a book co-written with theologian Robert Webber. 1996's Where I Stand was her commercial breakthrough, becoming Paris' best-selling record to date; Perennial: Songs for the Seasons of Life followed in 1998, and a year later she returned with True North. Bedtime Prayers: Lullabies and Peaceful Worship appeared in early 2001. In 2003 Paris returned with her first full worship record since 1991's Sanctuary. House of Worship featured ten new songs as well as two new versions of the well-loved classics "We Bow Down" and "We Will Glorify." Simply Twila Paris followed in 2005. ~ Jason Ankeny

Thank you for clarifying her vitality status, Anita. I kept thinking When did she die and how? as I read this bio. It needs fixing, for sure!
Report as inappropriate
This bio needs an update that is in the present tense. You make it sound like she's dead! And that would be tragic. What an incredible gift she IS to the world!
Report as inappropriate
No, tibbieman1, I believe she is still alive. My mother sang her song Every heart that is breaking at studio A in the mall as she was recording it for a church service. The studio played my mother singing that song throughout the mall, unbeknownst to her, and when she was down she had an audience of people who believed that she was actually Twila Paris and they wanted her autograph! My mother only sang for the church though, she never commercializ e d it.

Her biography on here is in the past tense. She isn't dead, is she?

MY MOTHER & AUNT SEEN HER BACK IN LATE '80's, or early' 90's. I've had couple of her cds. "God is in control" has. Been words spoken hundreds of times, maybe more, EVEN preventing me from extreme violence, just by SPEAKING THOSE WORDS, I KNOW THE HOLY SPIRIT WAS THERE. BY GOD'S GRACE, I AM BLESSED, NOT JUST IN PEACE & COMFORT, BUT JUST AS WELL, IN STORMS & ADVERSITY. HALLELUJAH

Report as inappropriate
Listening to God is in Control; what a powerful hymn with truth we come to see more and more as we pall the fawn stumbling in the grass' decades of life and see all he does (daily) that we somehow thought we were dong... Great use of a voice that could have sunk into spiritual insignifican c e in Hollywood or some other low joint...

How amazing your work is, Ms. Paris!! Your Bedtime Prayers CD could not have come at a better time with the birth of our first precious son that same year. Your hymns of worship brought us through some tough times of parenting and my husband's work, by the grace of God. I give away every one of this masterpiece I buy. I'm so glad I found this station! May Lord bless and keep you", Ms. Paris. Grace and Peace. D.M.J.

She's alive and we are doing a concert in Greensboro NC in a few days I love her music

I enjoy the song about her grandparents . She has always been my favorite artist. Yes, the songs we sing when we get to heaven will be simply amazing and the absence of sin will allow us to be and do beyond our wildest dreams. I look forward to eternity and I'm closer than I was yesterday. The pilgrimage continues. Guide me Lord!!
