Hope (1998)

Hope is the eleventh studio album by Scottish Christian singer - author Sheila Walsh. It was released in 1998 by Integrity Music in association with Women of Faith. It is Walsh's first album of new material in seven years and she left behind the contemporary pop/new waves sounds of the 1980s and early 1990s. Hope features a fresh new Celtic sound with some hymns and original song arrangements done by various musicians. CCM singer - songwriter Margaret Becker co-wrote two songs with Walsh with the title song and "After All."

The album is produced by Andy Piercy, who is best known as the lead vocalist of the 1980s U.K. new wave rock band After the Fire with their Top 10 worldwide hit "Der Kommissar." Walsh has been heavily involved with the Women of Faith conferences, which is a global ministry, providing digital media, resources and events to encourage and equip women to experience a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ. Walsh re-records the Say So self-written track "Trapeze."
