For Your Kingdom EP
Sarah Banks is a seasoned singer/songwriter and worship leader living in Nashville, Tennessee. Her powerful, expressive voice shines through creative melodies and heartfelt lyrics on her upcoming album, “For Your Kingdom.”
Over the last few months, Sarah has been working in the studio with a team of talented musicians to make this album a reality, and she is passionate about the message it conveys.
“I love the songs on this album because they’re taking the emphasis off of me and looking to the Kingdom of God,” she says. “I hope listeners will find this album packed with the truths of Scripture and pointing believers to the bigger picture of living for the Kingdom.”
The album is nearly complete, with five brand new songs recorded and ready to be released. But Sarah needs your help to make it happen!
The support raised through this Kickstarter campaign will help Sarah fund the final touches on this album including mastering, the production of physical copies, and the promotion of the album once it is complete.
“My desire is that this Kickstarter project will be a way for friends and family to stand with me, not only in my music, but also in this message of living for the Kingdom of God,” says Sarah. “I’m excited to see how God will use this album to encourage them and use them for His Kingdom.”

Texas native Sarah Banks is a 21 year old singer/songwriter and worship leader living in Nashville, Tennessee, about to release her second studio album, “For Your Kingdom.” Though still a young woman, Sarah is no amateur when it comes to songwriting. At the age of 16, Sarah began pouring her thoughts and emotions into songs during a difficult season of life.
“It was really from a place of loneliness that God drew me to Himself by His Spirit and began teaching me not only more about Himself, but also how to write songs about all that I was learning,” said Sarah.
After recording her first album, "Identity," at the age of 17, Sarah committed to pursuing music as a career. She moved to Nashville at 18 to begin the journey. Though Sarah desired to follow the Lord’s call on her life and please Him, the decision to come to Music City was initially more about meeting others’ expectations.
“I didn’t understand the freedom that the Lord had for me to serve him apart from the pressure to meet the expectations of others,” Sarah said.
A year later, growing discouraged by the pressures of the music industry, Sarah decided to take a step back from music.
“I found myself feeling like what I did was never good enough,” said Sarah.
Since then, the Lord has been working in Sarah and teaching her what it looks like to use her talents for His glory, regardless of what expectations others have for her.
“God has brought me to a place where I am ready to move forward with music again,” said Sarah. “I’m ready to walk in freedom and allow God to use my music in whatever way brings Him the most glory. I’m excited to walk in faith instead of fear, and see how God will be faithful.”
Sarah will release her forthcoming album, “For Your Kingdom,” in the spring of 2012.
