Kitty Cleveland’s first version completely rocks! I love it. Kitty is both a gifted professional Christian singer and a great friend of this website. Make sure to check out her music store for her albums. She does a fabulous version of “Be Not Afraid.”
This version is the original that I recorded with some members of a high school honor choir in Colorado that a friend got her daughter to get together. It includes both the words and the melody of the bass-line, or ostinato, as I was originally shown them. The girls are, from left, Emily, Anna and Audrey. I am the old guy at the end.
This version offers a different melody than the one I was shown, but uses the same words. It is a lovely offering on its own. It is by Fire and Flame Music. The musicians are brothers Domingo and Esteban from South Texas.
