The Hernandez Family - Listen For The Voice of God 

We've invested over the years into building our own small studio, so we're saving money on the recording end of things. So now that everything's recorded, it's time to go to artwork, graphics, manufacturing and replication. That's where we need your support and backing. And we thank you so much for your consideration and generosity!

Come, my children, listen to me; I will teach you the fear of the Lord. Psalm 34:11

First and foremost, we ask for your prayers. Being a family music ministry is challenging in every way: spiritually, artistically, emotionally, and financially. So first we ask for you to pray for peace for us in the midst of the joys and storms that is being married and raising seven children, the youngest of which is autistic.

This album actually got its genesis from a planning meeting for a children's Sunday school program that had for it's theme listening for God's voice. One of the stories that was going to be shared with the children was from 1 Samuel 3 - the calling of the boy prophet Samuel. That week I was inspired to write two songs - "Listen For The Voice of God," and a rap which told the story of the calling of Samuel entitled "Speak Lord, For Your Servant Is Listening." 

Other songs over the next few years began to emerge as our ministry blossomed, that had that same theme to them, and thus was born Listen For The Voice of God.

The Players:

  • Bernie Hernandez - vocals, piano, keyboards and synths, guitars, bass, drum programming, and production
  • DeSales Hernandez - vocals (click here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=emFeOPclWMY to watch and listen to DeSales in concert

Risks and challenges

Our risks and challenges are pretty minimal. This is a straightforward CD project. The recording is completed and the project just needs funding for its manufacturing and replication. The company we're using, Disc Makers, is very well-known and reputable, and their turnaround times are very reasonable.
