2020 Singing News Songwriter’s Search

In 2020, I entered my song, “He Proves Me Wrong” into the Singing News Songwriter’s Search Contest. I was blessed to win first place. It was an experience like no other and I thank the Lord for everything He showed me through it. Here are a few articles and photos from that time.

“Crossroads Music partnered with Singing News on the publication’s 2020 songwriting competition to find a song for 11th Hour to record. “He Proves Me Wrong” — written by Deanna Faith York — was the winner out of hundreds of entries. “I remember listening through songs that Singing News had sent me for the songwriters competition when I came across this one,” says 11th Hour‘s Jaquita Lindsey, who sings lead on this song. “We’ve all had a year of trials where we’ve had to put our faith to work. I knew the lyrics of this song would be words that so many could relate to. I’m so thankful that God never fails to prove us wrong with His presence in each situation that life brings us.” Horizon & Sonlite Records – Crossroads Music
