What You Need to Know
A sudden flicker of light. A bright beam cutting through years of darkness. A veil is torn. The blind can see. For Kira Fontana, creating music has always been spiritual. After studying music composition on the East Coast, Kira moved to Los Angeles to further her music career. She ended up one of the top vocal coaches in the city.
Kira Fontana is a top Hollywood celebrity vocal coach to major labels and shows such as Glee and The Voice as well as a singer-songwriter, producer, and the founder of Kingdom Sound. The album is a set of spiritual warfare songs, with melodies that came from her dreams, filled with words of God's triumph over her battles.
What it Sounds Like
Each song is unique, which helps Kira stand out. She offers an uplifting worship album with a variety of songs showcasing great piano playing and vocals. Kira's voice is much needed in our busy, chaotic world and helps us guide our attention to God and His beauty. The instrumentals demand attention and they are beautiful. Kira's debut project is a must-listen for anyone who wants to experience a new worship album.
Refuge is a huge spiritual highlight from start to finish. "Kingdom Come" is a standout and the song offers some uplifting lyrics in one of its verses: "We know what we're putting our hope in / We know that the battle's won / We're claiming victory, We lift our hands, Hallelujah." With those lyrics, Kira shows us that we have won the battle in God's kingdom and where we will be lifting our hands and rejoicing our victory, praising God. "Thine, O Lord, is the greatness, and the power, and the glory, and the victory, and the majesty: for all that is in the heaven and the earth is thine; thine is the kingdom, O Lord, and thou art exalted as head above all." (1 Chronicles 29:11)
For Fans Of

The best song on the album is "Hearts On Fire." The song is filled with beautifully written praise and worship lyrics, and many truths. The track helps us live for God and worship Him. The song will light your soul on fire and will inspire you to make a difference in our world.
Kira has released a great new album in a crowded worship scene. From the first track to the last one, Kira pulls us in with her beautiful vocals and instrumentals. The next time I sit quietly in prayer, I will be playing this album and reflecting on God's wonder.
