Artist: Sharon Thompson
She grew up in Toronto, Ontario attending the only Welsh church in Canada. On Sunday mornings she would be found singing the first verse in English, and the second in Welsh. This beautiful Gaelic language can be found on her recordings.
Sharon has recorded 3 albums to date: Visions of Hymn and her latest, More of Hymn, received nominations for Album of the Year and Song of the Year in the Traditional Category from GMA Canada. Considered a lyrical soprano, Sharon was classically trained under William Nahr: New York City Center Opera Company. With such a crystal clear voice she has even been called a `songbird` by past producers.
Sharon loves to sing God’s praises especially her own material since each song has a story. “Run to Jesus”, for instance, was birthed out of being in the sandwich generation: a stay at home mom taking care of her own family plus aging parents. She is currently a soloist for church music ministry and teaches voice at “Sing for the King” vocal studio in her hometown of Orangeville, Ontario.
