Product Description

“I am pleased to announce that able, worthy young women who have the desire to serve may be recommended for missionary service beginning at the age of 19, instead of age 21 . . . ” (Pres Thomas S. Monson, General Conference, Oct 2012)

With those few prophetic words, President Monson seemed to open up a whole new era of enthusiastic missionary service for both young men and young women in the church. In support of this new surge of enthusiasm we are excited to release The Sisters of Zion with 40 songs directed toward those young women leaving on missions. In 2002 we released our missionary collection The Army of Helaman for all missionaries, but now The Sisters of Zion is geared specifically to the women. Janice wrote new missionary lyrics to her song from the LDS hymnbook and it was sung for the first time by all the sisters in the MTC on May 12th of 2013.

This exciting recording features vocals from some of the top artists in the LDS market: Daniel Beck, Hillary Weeks, Felicia Gibbons Farerre, Tammy Simister Robinson, Steven Kapp Perry, Johanne Fréchette Perry, Jenny Jordan Frogley, Rebecca Lopez, Kathryn Thompson, Tanya Barkdull, Debra Fatheringham, Roger Hoffman, Lynne Perry Christofferson, Karsten Hunt, Santita Jackson, and One Clear Voice.
