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.

Rose of Bethlehem Accompaniment Book Jan 16, 2007
Beautiful arrangements, true to their CD. All Selah instrumentalist books are excellent.
The best of all albums (in my opinion) Jan 12, 2007
I love Selah and I'm really thrilled with this one. Even though it is based on Christmas, the songs and unusual renditions make it a "must have".

Love It All Year Long Aug 20, 2006
I own all the Selah albums and this is one of my favorite two. (Bless the Broken Road is my other) I listen to it all year long. It's too great to put away for 11 months of the year. The last three tracks are by far my favorite. With their beautiful vocals and stiring lyrics you get goose bumps in the middle of the summer.
Worth Every Dime! Feb 10, 2006
I accidently discovered this album by doing an iTunes search one night. "Light of the Stable" caught my ear many years ago, but I never knew the song other than by "allelulia" and I didn't know the name of it. Selah's version of this song is just "kicking" and really fun to listen to, reminding me of the reasons I fell in love with the song all those years ago. The song that brought me to tears, however, was "Mystery". The message in this song is so powerful I'd sing with any time of the year, regardless of the holiday. As soon as I heard a sample of "Mystery" I bought the album. I played it every day in December. Awesome!
