New Album from TY BELLO -THE MORNING SONG BOOK (Free Download)

TY Bello has released yet another breath taking album. and it is totally free to download.  Here are her thoughts on the album.

"In 2009, I begun this amazing season where I would write music to God as my morning devotion. It was a unique time of discovery and I felt it was a unique way to give of myself, open and sincere. It wasn't long that I realized that I was receiving way more than I was giving. Every beautiful exchange with God always leaves us with more.

I was also humbled when I got this heartfelt assurance that he thought the songs were perfect.
Perfect?? If you've ever written music you would know that 'perfect' is the one word that simply evades. Well, it has taken a number of years to make and here it is. My gift to God and His to me .And yours for free for as long as I can keep it so.On a perfect  day".
