Cherokee sisters debut first CD, "Heavenly"

Christian singers Stacie Ruth and Carrie Beth Stoelting of Cherokee have embarked on a nationwide media and concert tour.

The daughters of Dr. Wendell and Mary Stoelting of Cherokee, have just released their first CD, "Heavenly," recorded in Nashville, Tenn. in both the Ricky Skaggs and Ronnie Milsap studios.

The sisters travel the country to speak and sing as part of their "Bright Light Ministry."

Stacie once sang for then President George W. Bush, with Nashville recording star Ricky Skaggs in the audience. After hearing her sing, Skaggs petitioned his road manager to work with Stacie, ultimately leading to Stacie and Carrie recording the new CD.

The Stoeltings will give a concert at the Dallas Convention Center for Operation Care on Dec. 19. Thousands are expected to attend for Operation Care, the nation's largest fundraising event to help homeless people experience true loving care at Christmas.

"We get to sing and help homeless people hands-on. While sharing the Gospel, I believe it's important to love people with action and this allows us to do that," said Stacie.

The sisters have recently visited cities such as Washington, D.C., Atlanta, Nashville, and Pittsburgh.

When she was 15, Stacie wrote a compelling book called, "Still Holding Hands," which tells the story of her grandparents' love, lives, and her grandfather's battle against Alzheimer's Disease. The book has recently been re-released and offers help for caregivers and tips for families facing Alzheimer's.

Those interested can obtain more information and signed copies of the book and CD at www.brightlightministry.com. The "Heavenly" CD is also available by calling toll free: 1-800-421-7323.
