“Refugio de Gracia” Music Project – Now Available

As some of you may know, my husband and I lived in Mexico City in 2007 and 2008. While there, I had the honor of lending my voice to a Spanish language music project, spearheaded by Jared Weatherholtz, called “Refugio de Gracia” – or “Refuge of Grace.” Our goal was to provide Christian hymns to Spanish speakers that were both theologically rich as well as musically and culturally relevant.

Recording in Mexico City

What began as a few simple recording sessions in Jared’s tiny Mexico City apartment (see pictures) became a full-fledged professional recording project, with help from a wide array of talented musicians and production technicians in Mexico City.

I’m pleased to announce that the CD was released earlier this year and now widely available for digital download – click this link if you’d like to listen to any of the tracks, or purchase a digital or physical copy.

As a non-native Spanish speaker, I was extremely honored to be accepted as as part of this project – I sing lead on tracks 3, 9, and 12 and backup on tracks 5 and 6.

If you’re an English speaker and you’re interested in getting a translation of all of the lyrics and meanings of each song, I’d be happy to send you the translations for most of the songs via email.

  1. Good Afternoon,

    I’m a coordinator of cultural exhibitions and I really like your website. I’m working on a cultural exhibition of Australia and I saw with pictures and testimony, they are really good and exactly what I’m looking for.

    I work at STB – Student Travel Bureau, the largest Brazilian company specializing in youth travel and international education. It’s a company for 40 years specializing in youth travel and exchange student. We conduct a cultural exhibition to be launched with a cocktail at the Cultural Hall of the Automobile club Rio Preto, a traditional club in the city of Sao Jose do Rio Preto, SP – Brazil open to the general public and will follow the elementary and middle schools of Sao Jose do Rio Preto and region by the School Year of 2012. The main objective of this event is to bring culture, information and expansion of World Vision for Students. Exhibitions attract attention and whet the curiosity about history, geography and languages​​, returning students in the form of intellectual development.

    I would like to know with you could send me some high resolution pictures by email and if possible a testimony what your travel.

    Thank you So much! Carolina
