Victoria Griffith has a story to tell, one she's wanted to share since she was eight and first knew she wanted to sing. As Victoria sang in church and local talent shows, a dream developed to share her music and a message of God's blessing.

While studying at Lee University in Cleveland, Tennessee, Victoria sang with the Campus Choir and the Praise Team, and also played trumpet in the Symphonic Band. She seriously considered a career in music. But although Victoria's parents were always supportive, they were wary of a music career and cautioned her about taking that direction. They trusted her to make good decisions and wanted her to get an education first, and Victoria respected their concerns.

Victoria met her manager, Jerry Clifton, a well-known businessman, music manager, and talent scout from Rainsville, Alabama, in her teens when she sang at his church. Jerry's colorful personality, formal suit, and Mickey Mouse T-shirt made an impression. She saw him from time to time at her concerts, but he never seemed to be interested in working with her. Once, when he was telling Victoria about working with a singer he thought was promising, she spoke up and asked for his help. That was all Jerry needed. He had been a fan of Victoria's music for years but thought she didn't want to pursue music as a career because of her parents' concerns. But by this time, her parents had given their full blessing to Victoria's dream of singing.

Today, Victoria has her first CD, Wellspring in the Wilderness and a powerful testimony to share about this adventure. Don’t miss this inspiring episode and be sure to check out Victoria at http://www.victoriagriffithmusic.com
