Soulful pop vocalist, songwriter and pianist Kerrie Roberts independently releases amidst acclaim her highly-anticipated, five-song EP, My Heart's Lifted, Dec. 16 from The Fuel Music. The recording features Robert's high-energy pop styling and emotive, powerful voice carrying themes that take the listener on an emotional rollercoaster ride that mirrors real life and are meant to lift hearts toward what is most important, eternal and unchangeable.

Executive produced by Roberts, she also co-produced two songs on My Heart's Lifted with Jeff Savage (tobyMac, Rachael Lampa). Three additional tracks on the album were produced by Joshua Silverberg (Newsboys, Group 1 Crew, Edison Glass) and Kipp Williams, while mixing on the album was handled by Jared Fox (Michael W. Smith, Crowder), Silverberg and Savage. With mastering by Dan Shike (Jonny Lang, Francesca Battistelli, Newsboys), the new album also features Roberts co-writing with longtime collaborators Stephanie Lewis and GRAMMY-nominated Rusty Varenkamp, as well as such acclaimed songwriters as Silverberg, Williams and Josh Bronleewe.

Releasing today on iTunes® is the title track, which is meant to be an encouragement to all who hear it. "This EP starts with joy, praise and freedom," shares Roberts. "Then you're moved into more reflective and serious moments, while ending on a very thankful and happy note. I hope that listeners are challenged by the truths in the songs, and that they're also affected emotionally."

"These songs will have you hanging on every word that Kerrie tenderly and powerfully sings," says NewReleaseTuesday.com. "Her vocals will soothe your soul and the lyrics will direct your attention on the One who defeated death to heal your heart. This flawless album gives glimpses of how Kerrie's heart is lifted. Listening to this album and singing these songs to God heals your heart."

That healing of the broken-hearted is something Kerrie takes seriously, especially in her song, "Come Back to Life," which tackles the subject of suicide. "Friends I loved were losing loved ones to suicide, and their worlds were being rocked. I feel like suicide is something that we don't talk about very much, and I wanted to start speaking truth into that situation. 'Come Back to Life' is very much based on the verse in Romans 8, where it says the same power that raised Jesus from the dead is available to us now. I want to tell people that are in that dark place, that 'you're not alone,' and that there is a power that can bring them back to life."

"While some subjects might be difficult, I don't find singing or talking about them difficult," shares Roberts. "I find that a privilege. I want to speak into different situations, and I'm very hopeful that these songs will help people."

In addition to the release of the title track, "My Heart's Lifted," Roberts will begin posting lyric videos beginning today on her website (www.kerrieroberts.com), followed by posting live, acoustic performance videos of all the songs on the album.

The full track and songwriter listing for My Heart's Lifted follows:
1) My Heart's Lifted - (Kerrie Roberts, Joshua Silverberg, Kipp Williams)
