Overcoming a Core Muscle Injury - A Singer's Journey

"If you think singing is not an athletic activity, just ask Amy Lloyd, singer and independent recording artist in Southern Maryland. Similar to a sport, singing requires endurance and strength. Singing without engaging your core muscles is like trying to walk without using your quadriceps. Amy’s abdominal pain hindered her ability to perform, and eventually forced her to stop singing. After a long journey, her pain was diagnosed as a core muscle injury. Her path to recovery took her all the way to her recently released a single, “What Child is This?”

We asked Amy a few questions about her journey…"

Lloyd Releases Christmas Single

“I love this hymn because it not only reminds us of the story of Jesus’ humble birth but the second verse refers to the cross and actually includes a plea for those listening to place their faith on Christ for salvation,” Lloyd, who teaches piano and voice at Island Music Co. in La Plata, said. “Then, the hymn ends with a verse of beautifully written praise.”

Local woman releases folk Christian album ‘All I Need’

“I really got into singing,” Lloyd said. “It all hit me. ‘Wait a minute, I’m a singer. This is what I’m supposed to do.’”

During this time, she heard a sermon that asked “What is the one thing you do for God that you would be miserable if you are not doing it?

“For me, that is singing,” Lloyd said.

Amy's heart for Russia and connection to Doorways to Hope

For several years Amy and her husband, Matt, have been involved in missions work in Russia. Amy has expressed a desire to support the work that Doorways to Hope is doing in Russia and Ukraine. We are so grateful for her generous heart to give a portion of her album sales through December 31st to help orphans find loving, Christian families in their home countries! As adoptions from Russia to the U.S. have been closed, we are even more appreciative of support like Amy's to encourage Russians to adopt Russian orphans!

Excerpt:

4.  Spend time on the video.  Many Kickstarter campaigns feature a video explaining the project; singer and stay-at-home  mom Amy Lloyd relied on assistance from her husband and children as she put together clips of her songs and adorable family photos.  Lloyd, who sings religious songs and resides in Cheltenham, Md., raised $2710 and is currently rehearsing her material before she begins recording her album.

5.  Support others.  Lloyd backed the projects of other musicians on Kickstarter, and while she didn't do it to receive their support, she found that they often ended up supporting her, as well.  "It may sound like we just exchanged funds, but we helped each other create momentum and encouragement," she says.  That momentum helped more people find her project, she adds.
