Kira Shcherbakova in Concert
Sunday, October 8, 2017 - 6:00pm to 8:00pm
SHV - Jeffersonville UMC

Kira was born in Kiev, Ukraine and moved to the United States with her family at the age of ten.  She learned English within a few months and began dreaming of becoming a famous, professional singer.  She went to different venues, asking to sing, but got rejected every time.  It was heartbreaking!

One day, she got invited to sing at a Mother's Day church concert, to which she said, "I'm Jewish.  I can't go into a church."  The women persisted, however, and Kira accepted the invitation.  When she got there, she was surprised to see that the people were happy and accepting, quite unlike what she had seen elewhere.  She talked to the pastor and he answered all her questions about life and the meaning of it all.  She realized that all her life she had been looking for God and His direction for her.  She repeated a prayer of repentance and accepted Jesus as her Lord and Savior.  She realized that God made her, and His plan was for her to sing for Him and about Him.

After much consideration, she decided to leave her full-time job and follow God in starting a music ministry.  "God showed me that He gave me this voice and He wants me to use it for Him.  And that's what I'm doing."
