TORONTO, ONTARIO (FEB. 23, 2022) - Contemporary Christian artist Damara Melissa has successfully crowdfunded her new EP, “Beginnings,” to be released Feb. 25, 2022.

Inspired by Isaiah 43:19, “Beginnings” is a culmination of four inspirational songs: “Brave,” “Invisible,” “Where I Wanna Be” and “Rise Above.”

The artist wrote the EP when God revealed her idolatry of people to her through the racial upheaval events of 2020.

“Seeing differing views on the events broke me in pieces,” Damara said. “It was like there were gaping holes in me, but by God’s immeasurable grace, He rushed in to fill them. As He put me back together again, He kind of moved me through stages. In every area that I needed Him to speak into, He did. And each of them birthed a different song.”

Alongside fellow songwriters Ruthie Larbi and Sheree Wright and producers Steve Lensink at Noisy Neighbours Recording Studio & Dana Miller at Hillside Recording Studio (Damara’s label) Damara created the EP in hopes of strengthening listeners’ faith in God. The chorus of “Where I Wanna Be” describes this perfectly:
You bring me to the edge of me
Test everything that I believe, oh you
Are showing who you are, and who you’re making me
Without you I am not enough
But I’m complete within your love, Oh God
Right where you want me, is where I wanna be

Damara is thankful for the support of her friends, family and community that made crowdfunding the EP possible and will ultimately bring the songs to listeners who need them most.

"Godly healing doesn't come from having everything worked out, or every circumstance fixed - but from knowing and trusting God is working through the pain for our spiritual good." Damara said. “Just as God helped me heal and step out in faith in 2020 – I pray these songs will help others do the same!”
Damara Melissa is a singer-songwriter from Ontario Canada whose music is driven by her faith. Her soulful voice mixed with her pop melodies and style, bring a unique vibe to the Contemporary Christian Music space.

While desiring to share her music for years, 2020 finally gave her the push she needed to overcome her fears and step out in faith. Just over a year later, her most popular release "BRAVE" has over 30,000 streams on Spotify, she has begun getting some airplay on Canadian Christian Radio, and her fan base continues to grow daily.

She hopes to both encourage the saints, and share her hope in Christ with the world through music.
