From club circuits, to corporate functions, to regularly featured Casino entertainer, to recording artist, Maria Connel has earned the respect of colleagues and fans worldwide. After a successful debut release, 'All About Me', Maria garnered the attention of Memphis Hall of Fame producer, Larry Rogers of the renowned Studio 19 in Nashville. That led to a collaboration on 'The One', a single release, co-written by Annie Roboff (This Kiss) & Holly Lamar (Breathe). This track became Maria's first Nashville-recorded release and went #1 in October 2003 for 1 week on the World Indie charts, as well as #21 on the US Inside Country charts. Once again, Maria got the attention of HMG Nashville and was asked to write a Gospel project. With the same element of success in mind, 3 singles were recorded at Studio 19 with Producer Larry Rogers. The result was 'Your Will' which defined the entire project from the start. 'In making this Gospel CD, I felt as though I'd been led to this point in my career, to send a greater message - one that needed to reach more ears in a more meaningful way than anything I'd ever done before.'
