A year ago, Tulsa attorney Jeff Glendening attended a Christmas Mass at Redeemer Covenant Church. Bet Wallace, one of Redeemer’s fellowship singers, was joined by her daughter Ashtyn in their arrangement of “O Holy Night.”
Glendening was so moved by the stunning blend of the Wallace’s voices, he approached Bet about recording a CD.
The rest as they say, is history.
Combining their middle names, the Wallace’s have joined as the mother-daughter duo “Elizabeth,” meaning dedicated to God.
Glendening formed a new label, Jagster Records, LLC and partnered with Casey McClure, owner of Fathom Studios, to record “O Holy Night,” “Serving You” and Avalon’s “I Don’t Wanna Go.”
Jagster’s marketing and promotions director Amanda Thee says the release of the three-track CD is Nov. 29.
“Holy Night, of course, appeals to all audiences,” says Thee. “Bet and Ashtyn’s music has enormous cross-over potential attracting not only Christian listeners but country, adult contemporary and the younger crowd as well.”
In addition to the U.S. market, Thee is negotiating with radio stations in Ireland, Scotland, Great Britain, New Zealand and Australia to promote the CD including “Serving You,” a Celtic solo by Bet.
Elizabeth’s “O Holy Night” is expected to be available at retail outlets throughout Oklahoma, Texas and the southeast by Thanksgiving. It will also be accessible through iTunes, Dig Station and CD Baby.
Ashtyn lives in Nashville where she is pursuing a music career. Bet is a voice and music teacher in Tulsa.
“I have been so blessed,” Bet says. “The opportunity to collaborate with Ashtyn has truly been a life long dream. I know I speak for her in expressing the hope that our music will bring serenity and peace and every person who listens, closer to Him.”
