The Scotland Project

June 1, 2007

 WHY SCOTLAND?
A friend of mine from my Junior Year Abroad at the University of Edinburgh has invited me to her wedding in October, and I was thinking how magical the acoustics would be in one of those 13th century cathedrals.  Since the latest terrorist attacks, this trip is also shaping up to be a "Be Not Afraid" concert tour. We are still in the very early planning stages, but I ask you to keep this in your prayers.
The songs will be primarily the sacred Latin treasures that so many of you have asked for, including the English translations in the liner notes.  It will also include parts of the Latin Mass with translations in keeping with Pope Benedict XVI's desire that this treasure not be lost.
No matter what you may think about using Latin versus the local vernacular (I have no strong opinion either way), it sure would be neat to be able to pray the Mass in the same language as the natives no matter where you are in the world!
SONG LIST
Here is what we're considering so far:
  • A few different Latin Masses
  • Veni Creator Spiritus
  • O Sanctissima
  • Salve Regina
  • Tantum Ergo
  • Panis Angelicus
  • Ave Maria
  • Pater Nostra
  • Adoro Te Devote
  • Regina Coeli
  • Ave Verum Corpus
  • Pange Lingua Gloriosi
  • Parce Domine
  • Ubi Caritas
  • Attende Domine
  • Jesu Dulcis Memoria
  • Ave Maria
If there are any other songs you'd like to hear, I'd love to hear your ideas!  Also, these songs will be available for your personal dedications (as we did with the last CD in the liner notes).  Not only does this provide an essential part of the funding necessary to record these projects, it makes a beautiful and lasting memorial or gift to someone you love.  Please email me if you'd like more information about sponsoring a song on this new CD.
UPDATE:  I'm happy to report that this CD is now available for sale!  Please check out the music store for sound clips and purchasing.

Kitty on American Idol?

March 11, 2007

In addition to having phenomenal talent and sincere humility, she says on the AI website bio that her personal goals are "to represent Christ well and to do everything 150%."  What a gal!  And what a special addition she makes to the new CD.  She is also joined by some other wonderfully talented gospel singers, who truly took the songs ("Eye of the Storm", "Now You Come to Me", and "God Will Provide") to a whole new level.  "Bravo!" to Jason Eskridge and Missi Hale.

I saw an interview with Melinda in which she says that she had no discernable talents as a child, and that she was completely tone deaf.  She tried gymnastics, but that was a disaster (one thing she and I have in common).  And then in the seventh grade she decided to ask God to give her the gift of singing (that was the same year that it all started for me, as well).  He certainly answered her prayer!

What Others Are Saying about the "Be Not Afraid" CD

December 23, 2006

(Re:  Be Not Afraid CD, 2007) Most impressive is the consistency sustained throughout the album. Cleveland’s abiding faith and reverence for God forms the basis of every song. And, as such, it’s difficult to pick favorites since it’s the kind of record that can be played repeatedly, from the first track to the last, without tiring of it..."Eye of the Storm" captures the full strength of Cleveland’s artistry. With a gospel choir that gives the sound a heavenly measure, Cleveland has offered the world a gift that, obviously, was divinely inspired. A tribute to the survivors of Hurricane Katrina, this song could elevate Kitty Cleveland to star status. B. B., Music Connection Magazine, Los Angeles, CA

Kitty, your concert was so beautiful--I immediately liked EVERY selection when you sang it and again as I heard it going home on the CD! By now,my daughter and I have memorized all of the songs pretty much, and we compete for who gets the CD at home. We have "joint custody"--taking turns with listening to it at home, and then agreeing to listen to it first in the car!!  Mary T, Kenner, LA

I got Kitty's newest CD in the mail a couple of days ago and I think I've listened to it 4 times since yesterday. It's awesome!  Anyway, I just love the CD...Caroline S., Washington, DC

The new Be Not Afraid CD is fabulous. I was crying so hard yesterday listening to it I could hardly get out of my car and go into church without looking like I was a basket case!  Kitty is being used as an instrument in God's hand to draw people into a higher place of worship and awe. I quickly ran out and bought a bunch more to give as gifts.  Jan T., New Orleans, LA

Dear Kitty, I just had to write and thank you so much for being there for all of us at the Women's Day at St. Luke.  You sound even more beautiful in person.  I am so glad I purchased your "Be Not Afraid" CD.  "Fragrance Prayer" really brings the Holy Spirit into my heart as soon as I hear it.  It fills me with joy.  Your Eye of the Storm song brings chills all over me.  As you were singing "I will fly to you" a dove landed on one of the windows above the stained glass Jesus.   I know because I have a family of doves that lives in my tree in my yard.  Anyway, I just knew that the Holy Spirit flew to watch you sing that beautiful song and to be with us.  It still brings tears to my eyes.  Thank you for giving us such a wonderful gift and being part of such a wonderful day.  And thank you again for sharing the gift God gave you with your voice and songwriting.  Patrycja B, Slidell, LA
