The New Song Kids Choir is a spirited praise team of young believers who have decided to make worshiping God, through music and drama, a priority in their lives. These dynamic musicians, ages 9-16, have been called, anointed and appointed to sing new songs of praise to the Lord, our God, and to inspire others to do the same ~ according to Psalm 149:1. Their captivating, God-centered music is making it's way into CD players, iPods, church sanctuaries, family vehicles and hearts throughout the U.S. and around the world ~ including South Africa, Australia, China, Germany, and Mongolia! To God be the glory and may his name be praised in all the earth and at all times and seasons. Jody Abboud is the founder and director of The New Song Kids Choir (NSKC). An experienced worship leader and educator, Jody is also a psalmist who brings forth new songs of praise to the Lord, as described in Psalm 40:3. With music degrees from St. Olaf College and St. Thomas University, she was a public school vocal music teacher for many years before the Lord launched this exceptional kids' praise choir ministry. Through the NSKC, Jody now combines her love for the Lord and his children with her passion for songwriting and worshiping Him. Jody is called to help raise up the next generation of worshipers who will extravagantly love God with all their heart, mind and soul. She believes that when people hear children worshiping God, their hearts will be softened and they will turn to Him with a childlike faith, and put their trust in Him.
