Collin Raye “A Voice Undefeated”

Wednesday, June 18, 2014

6:00 pm EDT - 7:00 pm EDT


Description

20140618_CollinRaye_BookCoverWhen Collin Raye’s powerful, golden voice dazzled the country music scene in 1991 with his Number One hit single “Love, Me”, country music listeners fell in love with one of the great voices of our time. A new star was rising, and Collin’s success continued throughout the nineties with over eight million records sold.

Raye’s autobiography, A Voice Undefeated, gives readers a down-to-earth account of the author’s personal and professional life. From his childhood in Arkansas and Texas through his days with the Wray Brothers Band in Oregon and Reno to his rise to international stardom, this book is both a journey to the top of the music world and an intimate diary of a soul that has suffered great professional and personal losses.

Many who love Collin Raye, the successful country music artist, don’t know much about Collin Raye, the man, and the many trials he has endured with faith and courage. Most recently his beloved nine-year-old granddaughter, Haley, died in 2010 from an undiagnosed neurological disease. Since Haley’s death, Collin has become an advocate for the sick and disabled and has established the Haley Bell Blesséd Chair Foundation to provide wheelchairs to families with special needs children.

This is a remarkable, inspirational story told by the man who lived it. It is a story of faith, of struggle, of suffering, of profound love, and ultimately of triumph in the midst of tragedy.
