Vocal Recording Artist
2008 Inspirational Country Music Award
Nominee for Female Vocalist of the Year
and 2007 and 2008 Nominee for New Artist of the Year
Deborah Hightower made a grand entrance into the music world with the release of Her Name is Deborah. The twelve-song journey of contemporary, love-inspired music garnered four Top 10 hits on inspirational radio and earned Deborah nominations for 2007 ICM New Artist of the Year and 2007 and 2008 ICM Female Vocalist of the Year. Her musical styles are as diverse as her own influences and audiences. She has shared her gifts in a variety of venues - from intimate gatherings to mega-churches to overflowing concert halls to television and radio ... even the White House.
Beyond the powerhouse vocals, Deborah's artistry includes writing and speaking on subjects such as faith, family, friends, and finances. Her message is full of inspiration, information and empowerment. Her writings have been published in industry magazines, and she has been guest speaker at women's conferences, couples' retreats, fundraising events, and corporate functions. She has served as Mistress of Ceremonies in beauty and scholarship pageants and international festivals.
Deborah coined the phrase God-Spun, the title of her blog, during a moment of revelation while reading a business magazine - drawing on the notion that God's perspective can be applied to things seemingly unrelated to God.
It is Deborah's passion to uplift and encourage others through music, writing, and spoken word.
Speaking Topics Include . . .
Expand Your Tent ... Expand Your Life
By "expanding our tent" we can avoid self-sabotaging behaviors and learn how to expand into a broader life and greater fulfillment. Learn how to expand your mind by growing outside your comfort zone and living a more joy-filled life. This can mean anything from learning a new language to meeting new friends who aren't just like you ... expanding your spiritual life ... finding a cause that inspires you to share your time and talents.
If The Shoe Fits, Wear It
In this tongue-in-cheek presentation, Deborah explores the many "shoes" that women wear as they maneuver life as wife, mom, friend, daughter, sister, career woman ... the list goes one. She addresses the issues that come along with each one and how not to get lost in the shuffle.
How to Ease the Squeeze Between Children, Self and Parents
Deborah offers insight, empathy, and practical solutions to baby boomers - also known as "the sandwich generation" - who face a season of life where they are squeezed between caring for their children and their aging parents while maintaining their own careers.

Deborah is an absolute pleasure to work with! She always arrives on time and prepared! Her music reaches all generations - young and old. Her heart for the Lord really comes through in her voice. She is one of the few artists who can entertain or usher a group into worship and knows the difference between the two. I have had her on the show, Atlanta Live, several times and look forward to having her on many more.
Atlanta Live, WATC TV 57 Atlanta
Deborah has a broad range within her distinctive voice and can cross all over the board of genres from Country to Adult Contemporary to Praise and Worship ... leaves me wondering what the next album will bring.

Whether singing Christian Television Network's The Pastor's Heart theme song, in concert, or at a faith-based event, Deborah is able to bring inspiration that touches the heart of everyone who hears.

I met Deborah several years ago when my attorney recommended her to help me with financial planning needs. I was immediately impressed. It wasn't until months later that I found out she was leading a double life - she also sings and speaks professionally. Having always a passion for contemporary Christian music, I found myself listening to her music constantly. I find her voice very rich and smooth - her music very uplifting and very inspirational.
