New Reunion Records signing, nineteen-year-old singer/songwriter Moriah Peters has released her debut project, ‘I Choose Jesus’ which came out on 17th April 2012. The album attracted early attention at radio, with 23 stations adding lead AC single ‘I Choose Jesus’ in its first week, and winning over live audiences on the Rock & Worship Roadshow and countless other tour dates that she has done.

“So many months, prayers and personal stories have gone into these 10 songs and my hope is that you may be encouraged in Christ’s love for you through each lyric and melody.”

A college freshman at Grand Canyon University in Phoenix, Moriah is honing her time management skills, juggling a full class schedule while promoting her new record nationwide. Produced by Ed Cash (Chris Tomlin, Steven Curtis Chapman, Dave Barnes, Kari Jobe), ‘I Choose Jesus’ features 10 songs, nine of them co-written by Moriah, that draw inspiration from a variety of sources, including her own relationship with Christ as well as experiences she walked through with other young girls while leading her high school Bible study.

“The overall theme of the record is about making a choice,” says Moriah. “All of these songs are songs about being in different circumstances and choosing Jesus in each circumstance. I know that God has a blueprint for every single one of our lives. He has a plan and a purpose, and He wants to make His Son known through us. If we trust Him in every situation, if we choose Him in every situation, God will give us the desires of our heart.”

Such is the meaning behind breakout single ‘I Choose Jesus,’ that is led to Moriah embarking on an extensive radio tour, visiting stations across the country over six weeks, introducing the song to station programmers. Her message, song and vibrant personality were well received, with in incredible 23 stations adding the single out-of-the-box.

Jeff Cruz, program director at WMHK-FM in Columbia, S.C., comments, “This song is a mega hit. I never, never, never, never, say this on my first listen of anything, but DANG! What a great song!”

Moriah explains the song’s meaning: “It’s the song that represents who I’m called to be, not only as an artist, but as a daughter of Christ. I’m called to be bold. I’m called to be strong, and I’m called to be outspoken about who God is and what He’s done in my life.”
