Listen to the final project here!


We are so excited about the album we just recorded in Nashville. Amazing Grace is one of the songs we chose and we really wanted a choir singing behind us on the last verse. This is where you come in! Will you be a part of our choir?

Deadline to submit your part is June 18th, 2022 at 11:59 PM CST.


Here are your instructions:

  1. Access Folder with vocal parts.
  2. Figure out which vocal part you want to sing.
    • If you have sung harmony before, we would appreciate you considering choosing one of those parts
  3. Find a good audio space.
    • If you’ve got a clothes closet, go in there. It’s probably the least echo-y space in your house. Record in there. 
    • Another option is your car. No echoes in there, either. Just make sure the air conditioner isn’t on and the engine isn’t running.
  4. You will need two devices and a pair of headphones. One to record your singing and another to listen along to the track with your headphones.
    • We recommend using two cell phones or a cell phone and a computer.
    • You can also use a microphone if you have it, but a phone voice memo will work perfectly.
  5. Record your part
    1. Find and open the Voice Memos app or ask Siri to open it.
    2. To record, tap the red button. To pause, tap the same button. 
    3. When you finish, tap Done.
    4. Name your voice memo by tapping on the title.
    5. Share it with us by tapping the symbol with the arrow pointing out of the square. Choose email and send to with the subject line AMAZING GRACE CHOIR. 
      • iPhone Users
        • More iPhone help can be found here
      • For Android help, follow these instructions.
      • MP3, m4a and Wav files are accepted. If you submit a file that we cannot use, we will reach out and ask you to resubmit with an alternate version.
      • Submit before June 18th, 2022 at 11:59 PM CST.
    6. If you are still having problems, grab a child or grandchild and have them assist you. Julianne is the only reason we are still functioning technologically around here so never be afraid to ask for help! 😉

Thank you for wanting to be a part of our album! We can’t wait to hear all your beautiful voices.
