Voices (1987)

Voices is a 1987 various artists compilation music sampler album released by Myrrh/Word Records. The album features known and unknown CCM artists. Some of the known Christian music artists include Bryan Duncan, Kim Boyce, Benny Hester, Matthew Ward and Bob Carlisle. Carlisle, at the time, was the lead singer of the Christian Rock band Allies before embarking on his solo career in the 1990s and contributed two solo tracks. Four of the tracks were released to Christian radio as singles. Producers Mike Mierau and Rick Thomson described the album they wrote on the back album cover:

"There are certain singers whose voices are instantly recognizable. The minute you hear them, you know they're one of your favorites. Here on this record are ten new songs by ten great singers. It's a collection of amazing talents offering their voices to God."
