Chicago-based pop rock singer Virginia Hill knows first-hand the importance of God’s timing. Growing up as the youngest of a musically prominent family, (mom Judy Buffum and sister Tammy Trent are both successful recording artists) Virginia’s musical gifts blossomed quietly in the background, revealed only through her church choir and school musical productions during her younger years.
Marriage to her best friend Ken brought her to the Chicago area, where family was the focus for the next two decades, until sons Kenny and Kyle hit the less-dependent teen years. Virginia was active in her church worship ministry but it wasn’t until the self-taught guitarist and naturally expressive singer/songwriter did a demo of her original music that she caught the ear of a Nashville producer. Finally, it seemed like doors of opportunity might be opening for the vivacious, captivating artist who had waited patiently for God’s timing.
Virginia’s new release, aptly titled Truth & Love, was made available through iTunes in February and will be releasing nationally in September 2009. She is driven by her focused heart for ministry, effectively reaching audiences of all ages as she toured the country for a year and a half in support of her first album, LOL.
Virginia has once again turned her keen eye to the cultural horizon. Entertaining yet incisive pop track “I’m Just Saying” parodies our tendency toward causal offensiveness, written after viewing an Oprah broadcast. “That’s why the record is so important,” she explains passionately. “Right now we really need to stand on the very foundation of God’s truth and love.” Hill’s self-penned anthems once again brim over with thoughtful truth and Biblical values, powerfully articulate on the nuanced, textured “Every Single Thing” and worshipful ballad, “I Am Here.”
Virginia Hill has waited on the Lord for His moment. Years of sitting quietly before Him, guitar in hand and an open Bible at her feet, all come to a beautiful fruition now in her sensitive ministry to all ages. Virginia Hill is ready to serve, to be His instrument, for such a time as this.
