Beyond a Dream (1993)

Updated: Mar 2

Beyond a Dream is the tenth studio album by Christian music singer - songwriter Twila Paris, released in late 1993 on Star Song Records.

Paris reunited with producer Brown Bannister, who produced her 1990 album Cry for the Desert and also with Paul Mills who produced two new tracks on her 1992 compilation album A Heart That Knows You. The album topped the Billboard Top Christian Albums chart, giving Paris her first number-one album. In 1995, Paris won her third-consecutive Female Vocalist of the Year title and also won Song of the Year for writing her number-one Christian AC hit "God Is in Control" at the 26th GMA Dove Awards. Music videos were made for "God Is In Control" and "What Am I Without You?" with Christian musician Steve Taylor directing the latter video.
