More About Selah
Selah is a contemporary Christian vocal trio consisting of Todd Smith, Allan Hall, and Amy Perry. They have won five Gospel Music Association Dove Awards. The group has been featured on The 700 Club, The Hour of Power, and TBN.
Selah was originally formed by brother and sister, Todd and Nicol Smith, along with friend Allan Hall. The group quickly gained success with the release of their first album, Be Still My Soul, in 1999. Selah earned a reputation for being able to reveal the heart of any song they recorded, transforming old Christian hymns into a more modern style and with their powerful voices and beautiful harmonies. Todd and Nicol, who spent their childhood in Subsaharan Africa, brought many African elements to their songs as well. They are as comfortable singing in Kituba, as they are in English. Todd gives credit for his music career to his missionary upbringing. “I've been singing in front of people since I was three,” he said. “My parents are missionaries. When we came back to the United States, we had to visit each church that sponsored us. That was a good training ground.” They also did well-known covers of already-famous songs such as "You Raise Me Up" by Secret Garden and "Bless the Broken Road" by Marcus Hummon. Selah went on to win a Dove Award for their debut album.
Their second album Press On was released in 2001, and also won a Dove Award, along with many nominations for individual songs in the album.
In April 2000, Nicol Smith released her self-titled solo debut on Curb Records. She met and married Greg Sponberg in 2003. Nicol Sponberg released her second solo album, Resurrection (Curb Records), in 2004. The single "Crazy In Love" crossed over to the secular Adult Contemporary charts while songs like "Safe" continued to earn her airplay on Christian radio. Todd also produced a solo album, Alive, in 2004.
2005 to present...
Nicol left the group in 2004 to pursue a solo career, and for most of 2005 Melodie Crittenden sang with the group.
The 2006 Bless the Broken Road album was a project that teamed original Selah members Allan Hall and Todd Smith with a wide variety of guest singers.
After auditioning 15 female vocalists, Amy Perry became a full-time member based on her vocal abilities and spirituality. Allan Hall also began to get a more active singing role, from originally being the band's accompanist.

Reviews - What do customers think about Audio CD-Be Still My Soul?
Great Nov 30, 1999
This CD is typical of what you might hear from Selah. It is peppy and energetic, but also reverant, serious, and very lyrical.
I think I enjoy the "Press On" CD a bit more, but this CD is still good. "Wayfaring Stranger", a song on this CD, is very heartfelt and conveys strong emotions.
Wonderful group, wonderful music! Nov 30, 1999
I recently discovered this group when browsing for some music and i found i really liked them. Their different from all the other groups because of the type of music, songs they pick and their wonderful harmonies. I like that they don't go with everyone else and sing with "Christian Rock", they sing nice songs some with an african twist and the songs they use are some of the most beautiful hymns. This cd will bring u closer to God and lift you up. I plan on buying all of Selah's cds.
SELAH is superb as is GENIE Nov 30, 1999
I also highly recommend the GENIE 4 CD set that this site's got on special.
I believe this Genie is an Amish singer. Selah came from Africa,and you can hear the unique tones in each of their sounds.
Footprints poem - the musical soundtrack! Nov 30, 1999
This is a CD for anyone who's ever struggled in their faith due to pain and problems in daily life. It's got to be one of the most inspirational recordings I've ever heard. It's so simple - a couple of guys and a girl singing along with a piano - and yet it'll blow you out of your socks with how powerful it is.
I was going through one such struggle myself a few days ago, and I prayed and asked God for reassuance. The very next day my Selah CDs arrived in the mail from this site.com. To put it simply my prayers were answered.
I put the CD on and began doing the dishes. All the way through the disc I was pulled alternately between wanting to jump for joy and weep with gratitude. The overall message of Be Still My Soul is "Yes, God is there, and he does care. He still loves you no matter what." The Spirit of God was stirred up inside me, and not only did I begin to realize how much God really does love me, I also realized how much he loves and hurts for every single person going through pain and problems as well. It was a very faith-affirming experience, and as I said, a direct and powerful answer to the prayer I had prayed the day before.
This CD has uninanimously received 5-stars from every single reviewer so far, and deservedly so. Be sure and buy a copy for anyone who is struggling with grief, pain, fear, loss, doubt or depression, or who has come through such a struggle and is getting back on their feet. Be sure and pick up a copy for yourself if you are going through these same things. You will be encouraged and inspired beyond what you can imagine.
