Adrianne Price to speak at Magnificat Breakfast
The Service Team of Mary, Woman of Faith, Chapter of Magnificat is delighted to invite the women of the diocese to its Magnificat Prayer Breakfast on Saturday, Oct. 28, from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at St. Elias’ Parish Hall.
The speaker, Adrianne Price, is a cradle Catholic who was born in Middletown, Ohio and grew up always loving music. She started singing at 12 years of age and professionally at about age 15. After graduating from the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music, she was plagued with severe vocal nodules from too much singing and vocal abuse. Due to her permanently scarred vocal cords, the professors and doctors said she would never be a soloist. Full of anger that God would give her a gift and then take it away, she turned away from her Catholic faith.
Adrianne and her husband, Thom, have been married for 37 years and have one son. They left Cincinnati and moved to Los Angeles where Adrianne was a singer, actress, and voiceover artist. After moving to Minneapolis, Thom and Adrianne both experienced a powerful conversion and hungered for a real relationship with Jesus. The Lord answered their prayers and Thom found work in a Christ-centered company. He took a position as Program Director for EWTN’s radio network in Birmingham. Adrianne was miraculously cured of the nodules while praying in the chapel at EWTN on the feast of St. Blaise in 1998.
Adrianne feels sacred music fills her life with prayerful peace and tries to carry that peace out into the world. She has released two sacred music albums and is currently recording and editing her own voiceovers. She records for TV and radio commercials, training videos, children’s animation and Catholic audiobooks. Adrianne is also the director of music and cantor at St. Barnabas Church.
Please plan on having breakfast and listening to Adrianne share how vocal nodules crushed her childhood dream of becoming an opera singer. She will describe how God miraculously gave back her gift so that she could use it to build up His Kingdom. She says, "I will only sing sacred music to thank Him for all He has done for me.”
