MELINDA MCGLASSON CELEBRATES NEW EP WITH RELEASE CONCERT

Worship Leader/Cancer Survivor to Perform New Music from 'Heaven to Me'

February 14, 2019 (Springdale, Ark.) – Worship leader and cancer survivor Melinda McGlasson is set to celebrate the release of her new EP with a release concert on Sunday, February 17. McGlasson will perform songs from her 5-track project at the event, which will be held at Connection Church in Guymon, Oklahoma.

The release of “Heaven to Me,” produced by Eric Copeland and Jonathan Crone, follows McGlasson’s radio success with “Trust Him,” a single that climbed to No. 1 on the CRC Weekly chart.

McGlasson, who is a worship leader alongside her husband and Pastor, Dallas McGlasson, at Connection Church in Guymon, has been on a personal roller coaster for the past couple of years. In August 2015, the mother of three was diagnosed with what appeared to be ovarian cancer. After receiving prayers for healing from all over the world, McGlasson underwent surgery to remove what was revealed to be a non-malignant mass.

Three months later, after McGlasson began losing her voice, she, once again, received a cancer diagnosis.

“On November 14, 2015, I had a total thyroidectomy and found out that I had Stage 3 thyroid cancer,” McGlasson said.

“In the Book of James, Paul talks about counting it all joy when you face various trials and temptations. Although my body went through some hardships, I can truly say I count it all joy because God has been glorified and people have been encouraged to fight the good fight of faith.”

In May 2017, McGlasson experienced another miracle in her life when she received a call from an agency that connects adoptees and biological families to discover health histories. McGlasson, who was adopted as an infant, took the call, expecting the agency to ask her to perform at an event, given her background. Instead, the agency was calling to tell McGlasson that her birth mother had thyroid cancer and was trying to contact her to alert her to news of her biological family’s health history, a fact the singer, ironically, had already discovered.

“In one day I went from being an only child to finding out I had a birth mother, three sisters, three brothers-in-law, and six nieces and nephews,” she said, “God expanded my heart to love all of them immediately!”

The topsy turvey of McGlasson’s life only enriches her testimony.

“I think the Lord likes to keep me on my toes to show me that He’s in charge,” McGlasson said.

Tickets for McGlasson’s release party, which begins at 6 p.m. C.T., can be purchased at the door for $10.
