Amanda Fessant of Paris is pleasantly surprised to receive word that her
song "He Loved Me When," a tribute to her father, not only was still on
the chart, but has risen to No. 27 on the Christian Country Music Top
Fessant said, "I was so excited as I was hoping to get in the top
40." Her song debuted at No. 90 in June, followed by No. 69 in July and
No. 41 in August on the Christian Country Music Top 100 of the Power
Fessant said she was also very surprised by the large number of
Country radio stations that have reported playing the release and that
she is so very excited about her first national release.

CD project during the month of October with a projected release date in
December. Fessant has been invited to perform a showcase for the ICM
Week in Nashville, Tenn., at the Acuff Theatre at Opry Mills in
November. "This is quite an honor and a privilege for me," said Fessant.
She explained that it will be on the heals of her next trip to
Arizona to work on a different Indian reservation from that of this
"I feel grateful that they think we are of value in the work there
and want HIS Ministry to be a part of this ongoing effort," said
She added that the ministry will return to Louisiana after the
first of the year to again with the Christian school in Slidell, La.
