Here's what people are saying about Eddy and Ava Joyner's music...
"The concert you presented was a tremendous blessing
to everyone present. The music was beautiful from the first note to the last. The worship experience was rich. Thank you!
I guess it was a good thing the weather was so rough that night (Hurricane Ernesto) otherwise, we would have had to move some
walls to accommodate the crowd."
- Pastor Marsha D. U. Emery, Lakeside United Methodist Church,
"At the concert, I was astonished! I didn't know what to expect. I knew that Eddy could play and
I had heard you sing some over the years. I was afraid I would have to "lie" and say I liked your "country
twang" music, but the music was good. I was astonished, that's all I can say! My favorite song from the new CD is the "Sparrow" song. The CD is full of hope and very uplifting.
The songs tell a story, if you listen. It is Jazzy and has a different and refreshing beat."
- Julee Crews, adopted "sister" and loving prayer partner, Brunswick, GA
"Your new CD "Jesus Is Calling You" is deeply felt and the music is inspired.
What you are singing is obviously from God. The sparrow song made me cry!"
- Amy Putnam,
Music Director and 6th grade teacher, Moultrie, GA
love the new CD, "Jesus is calling you". It makes me cry. The vocals were great and I love the way Eddy
plays the piano. I keep it in my car. I've ordered 2 more so that I can give them to friends that I feel your
music will touch. I just don't want to give up my copy!"

cry! I want to keep the DVD on all of the time, it is so peaceful. Can't wait until you can come back to play
in Wisconsin again!"

& Ava performed at our Wedding Ceremony in 2001, people still remember their sound. Their impressive performance

"What a blessing to have Eddy and Ava minister at GOD Appreciation
days in Argyle WI and at Ronnie Peterson's in Highland WI. Ava's lyrics are like thinking out-loud about our
walk with JESUS that we all can relate to. Eddy's piano playing is so anointed and full of emotion. Can't wait till
they're back in southern Wisconsin. Fun People to be around."
-Bill Sarbacker, Audio Engineer
for Dave Harris and Ronnie Peterson, New Glarus ,WI.
"Last week, on a night we were particularly
beat from a long day, we played your CD. While we were making tostadas the music refreshed us. We love your voice
and especially loved "Jesus Loves Me" that night. Once again, it was a refreshing listen!"
Jones, Singer and Songwriter, Sunriver, OR
"Watched the video (studio) and thought it
was professionally done. It explained thoroughly the various services and capacities available. Hope all is well for
-Pastor Michael Farmer, Pastor, First Church Of the Nazarene, Moultrie, Ga.
" Hi Eddy! I loved your You-Tube!!! It seems like you are really doing something GREAT with
your life. Watching that video gave me encouragement to get back into God's will and plan for my life again. I
have been in a spiritual desert since my husband left me. I felt like God had abandoned me and I just didn't know how
to trust Him anymore. So I have really been in rebellion for about two and a half years. Recently, I have felt
Him really calling me home. I have started reading my Bible again and last week I joined the choir at church.
I love to sing and I would love to sing for Him again. Everybody tells me that I have a really good voice and that I
should look towards becoming a professional at it. I have been so emotionally beaten up by life that I have a hard time
believing that something like that could happen for me. But I think God used you to send me an email of encouragement
and to give me hope that He's not done with me yet and that I could dream again. Maybe someday He will bring me to your
recording studio!! Anyway, thanks for sending me some hope."
-Susan Wendel, Brunswick, Ga.
The Lord has been putting this on my heart for a while to
tell my experience with this CD.So I am. I have been having a really hard time over the past few years. The Lord told me to
pull this CD out and really listen to it. Which I had heard it before. But because of the place I was in I listened with my
spirit. This CD has helped me during this time and still is helping me. If you are struggling with anything this CD is awesome.
A few songs that really spoke to me, were "All About him", "Wait", "Standing on your word",
"Willing" and especially "Because I Love you". But there is no bad song here. They are all very powerful
and will speak to your soul. And of course Eddy's piano playing is beyond belief. You can get lost just in the music.If you
haven't heard it you have to get it. You wont be sorry. Be Blessed Bunches!
