Who Are You Girl?

I had to laugh when I read today’s Daily Prompt:

Daily Prompt: Mix Tape Masterpiece

You make a new friend. Make them a mix tape (or playlist, for the younger folks) that tells them who you are through song.

Photographers, artists, poets: show us MUSIC.

That has been my mission, my goal so to speak.  I am a musician as many of you know.  God has opened doors for me to play every week at Janesville Apostolic Ministries in Janesville, WI with my husband, Bob.  We had a Church Dedication yesterday that was absolutely amazing. I’ll use another post for that.  Let’s just say Ms D had a blast singing and dancing!

I also write, sing, and record songs about breaking free from Domestic Violence.  Silent No More – that’s me.  Singing about what really goes on behind closed doors when you live in abuse.  Not to glorify what happened, but to raise awareness.  People don’t know what happens unless we tell them.  People can’t help the next woman out of abuse if they don’t know how or what to do next.

Here is my Bio from Broadjam:diana rasmussen

Diana is a Music Minister, Blogger, Poetess, and Recording Artist based in Southern WI. She has received many TOP 10 AWARDS from Broadjam, Inc. in the Jazz, Country, Folk, and World Categories.

Diana Rasmussen is a Soul Survivor. She plays live at the local coffee shops and leads the Worship Team every week at Janesville Apostolic Ministries. Her songs focus on overcoming adversity, breaking free from domestic violence, and living beyond depression. Fans have called her songs, “haunting, powerful, and edgy”. Diana sounds like Annie Lennox and Bonnie Raitt, and there is a raw honesty about her lyrics.

WALKING WOUNDED by Secret Angel and Diana Rasmussen

Mixed/Mastered by Chameleon

Diana (PrayersandPromises) and Secret Angel (Secretangelps911) met on WordPress. Having both come from a past of abuse, they have a lot in common. Secret Angel has written a book sharing her story, “THE WALKING WOUNDED”. Secret Angel wrote the poem “The Walking Wounded” and Diana put a portion of the poem to music. A portion of the proceeds of this song will benefit Secret Angel Ministry.

Secret Angel’s book, “THE WALKING WOUNDED”, talks about how abuse happens and how victims become trapped in their situations. It brings understanding to the plight of victims as Secret Angel reveals her own true story, including how God intervened in her life and rescued her. “THE WALKING WOUNDED” is in publication currently and will be released in August of 2013, with a plan for the majority of proceeds to go into ministries that help victims of abuse.

    I love that you use your music to promote such powerful messages of love and hope. I’m sure it’s somewhat cathartic and healing too?
