It was released in early 1978, one month before her high-school graduation. She released her second album, My Father’s Eyes, in May 1979. In 1982 she released her breakthrough album Age to Age.

She’s earned six Grammy Awards and numerous Gospel Music Association Dove Awards as well as three multi-platinum albums, six platinum albums and four gold albums. She’s achieved 10 Top 40 pop singles and placed 17 hits on the Top 40 Adult Contemporary chart as well as scoring numerous hits on the contemporary Christian charts.
