Kathy Troccoli (1994)

Updated: Nov 7, 2023


Kathy Troccoli is the fifth self-titled studio album by Christian singer - songwriter Kathy Troccoli, released on June 15, 1994 by Reunion Records and RCA Records.


The follow-up album to 1991's Pure Attraction, the album continues Troccoli's balance of mainstream and Christian pop songs. Prolific pop songwriter Diane Warren, responsible for Troccoli's 1992 hit "Everything Changes," returns with the lead single "Tell Me Where It Hurts." The song was worked on mainstream pop radio while "My Life Is In Your Hands" was released to Christian radio as its lead single.


Troccoli covers two songs: "Never My Love," recorded by both The Association (1967 #2 Billboard Hot 100) and The Fifth Dimension (1972 #12 Billboard Hot 100, #1 Billboard AC) and "Takin' a Chance" by Whitney Houston, which is one of the bonus tracks found on the Japanese edition of her 1990 album I'm Your Baby Tonight. Additional music videos were made for "My Life Is In Your Hands" and "Mission of Love." Ric Wake, who produced Pure Attraction, produced the only track "Takin' a Chance" with other tracks produced by various producers including Michael Omartian, Keith Thomas, Peter Bunetta and Rick Chudacoff.


Kathy Troccoli peaked at number 10 on the Billboard Top Christian Albums chart. In 1995, Troccoli was nominated for Female Vocalist of the Year and Song of the Year for "My Life Is In Your Hands" at the 26th GMA Dove Awards.
