Join Meredith Augustin for an evening reflection in which we are encouraged to pray in solidarity for the impact the COVID19 pandemic.
“When she sings, I feel close to God!” These words have been used to describe listening to Meredith. Love flows through her – and her voice touches hearts. A West Virginia girl, who grew up in Morgantown, Meredith began playing the piano and singing at a very young age. She describes, “My mom taught piano lessons while I was in her womb. I think it started there. When I was two, my mom and dad told me it was time to give up my pacifier, and I could sing myself to sleep…. I haven’t stopped.” After completing her Masters of Science degree in Rehabilitation Counseling from West Virginia University, Meredith’s musical activities began leading her to New York City, where she eventually made her home. Currently, she is the Director of Music at the Church of St. Francis of Assisi in midtown Manhattan. Meredith reflects, “In the last 10 years, my job has allowed me to come face to face with so many beautiful people from so many beautiful cultures. It certainly has helped me evolve personally, as well as musically.” A rare artist who appeals to fans of all genres – particularly jazz/world/Christian – Meredith has been blessed to collaborate with musicians from all over the world, in particular, Haiti. She has released four solo records entitled: “What’s Goin’ On,” “Deep River,” “Come and Go With Me,” and “Boundless Mercy.”
