About Sandra McCracken

Sandra McCracken’s prolific contributions as a songwriter, modern-day hymn writer, and record producer has brought grace and clarity to her soulful, folk-gospel sound. Whether in a theater or in a chapel, she is a dynamic performer who blurs the lines of what church music sounds like, captivating and inviting audiences to sing along. While many of her songs like “We Will Feast In The House Of Zion,” “God’s Highway,” and “Thy Mercy My God” have settled into regular rotation in Christian worship services internationally, she has also had songs recorded by All Sons And Daughters, ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy, Audrey Assad, A Rocha Compilation, Bifrost Arts, Caedmon’s Call and others. She is further a founding member of Indelible Grace Music and Rain For Roots (children’s music) and has been a guest writer for Art House America, She Reads Truth, The Gospel Coalition, Christianity Today, RELEVANT Magazine and more. Her latest releases include Psalms, God’s Highway as well as Steadfast Live. At home in Nashville, with her two young children chiming in, Sandra contributes to Rain For Roots, producing timeless, gospel folk-songs for God’s children of all ages.

Sandra McCracken… draws the listener in for a moving set of theologically rich and melodically warm worship songs… McCracken’s stripped down approach feels like a house church gathering, celebrating the character of God, the finished work of Jesus, and the ongoing movement of the Holy Spirit.  — CCM Magazine

Watch and listen to Sandra’s song “We Will Feast In The House Of Zion”


About Wayne Brezinka

Minnesota native and Nashville-based visual artist, Wayne Brezinka (American, b. 1968) is quickly gaining national acclaim and recognition. The LOS ANGELES TIMES’ Wesley Bausmith calls his work “Sophisticated.” The BOSTON GLOBE’s Heather Hopp-Bruce says it’s “Beautifully Crafted.” His intricately detailed mixed media and assemblage work using discarded and repurposed materials has been featured in and commissioned by the New York Times, Neiman Marcus, POLITICO Europe, The Washington Post and Deloitte University Press, among others.

His work leaves viewers free to let their imagination engage the stories told within and get caught up in their complexity. Solo and or group exhibitions of his work have been presented in New York, Nashville, Indiana and Washington, D.C. His 2014 exhibition “Paper Cuts” at O’More College of Design in Nashville, received positive notice from regional and national media and enjoyed a record-breaking opening attendance of 400+.

The Nashville-based artist’s LINCOLN portrait was on a 5-year loan for a temporary exhibition at the historic Ford’s Theatre and Museum in Washington, D.C. ending in 2017. His portrait of BOB DYLAN recently wrapped a five-month-long exhibition at the Tennessee State Museum in late 2015.

Former Vice President Al Gore and country music icon George Strait are among Brezinka’s most recent collectors.

“This kind of artistry, wit, vision, soul, craftsmanship and expression shouldn’t ever be taken for granted…” – The Washington Post, Michael Johnson/Art Director

A portion of Wayne’s art sales from this event will support the Chapman family adoption.
