Rachel (Saunders) Dampier is becoming known in the southeast United States for her powerhouse vocal ability, heart-gripping lyrics and tireless advocacy.
Her single, “Strong Heart” is currently #26 in the Power Source Inspirational Country Music Charts.
She was raised on the Florida-Alabama line in Bonifay, Florida. Though
it has only about three stoplights, Bonifay is a town famous for rodeos
and home to
the annual Gospel “Biggest All-Night Sing in
the World.” Rachel sang at that event, and often in church. While
growing up in the Panhandle, other doors began to open for her to sing.
Since childhood, she has written and performed music in churches,
colleges and other venues throughout the world. Those venues include
those in the US, Europe, Middle East and China. A few highlights of her
experience include her performance on the ABC network and in a
television series with Cover Girl Cosmetics Model Jennifer O’Neill. She
has opened for major artists in Christian, Country and Pop music, and
recently recorded a duet on her latest album with American Idol finalist
Ricky Braddy. Her previous album, Vintage Gospel, garnered an Angel
Award in 2008.
Rachel hopes that her music will encourage people who listen to find the resilience that she has found from God. She
is currently scheduled to be on tour through November. The Resilient
Tour is taking Rachel along the east coast to venues and radio stations
from New York City to Florida with international dates including Asia.
“What
a dream to be nominated for an Inspirational Country Music Award,” says
Dampier. “There are so many talented newcomers to this genre, so I feel
really blessed.”
