“Once in a while, a gifted person crosses ones path and leaves such and indelible impression that you feel people everywhere must experience her presence. Such a unique individual is Hannah Ford. She writes, she plays, she sings. All of these gifts resonate from a fresh, young, energetic personality that has been surrendered to the will of God. This gifted lady has ministered overseas and in America. In hard-core prisons and rough Juvenile detention centers, her spirit filled demeanor, personal testimony and relevant music penetrated hardened hearts and shattered satanic barriers, paving the way for broken lives to vibrate once more with hope. Should you desire a blessed and unique experience and wish Hannah Ford to minister in your area, I recommend her without hesitation.”
Ralph Bell, Billy Graham Association

“Of all the various artists we have come and play at Calvary Chapel South Bay, no one has left a greater impression than Hannah Ford. Hannah truly is unique and has a style all her own. She has a pleasant spirit and a beautiful stage presence that truly exudes the Lord Jesus. There’s such a sweetness and humility about Hannah, no one could help but be encouraged in their worship of the Lord Jesus Christ. It’s artists like Hannah Ford that make the perfect role-model for people of all ages, including teens and young people of our times.”
Don Modglin, Assistant Pastor, Calvary Chapel, South Bay, CA

“Hannah Ford is a breath of fresh air. She is refreshing in sound, pure in creativity, and genuine in her love for Jesus. In a day when it is becoming more common for Christian musicians to seek fame and glory it is very encouraging to find someone whose strongest feature is a heart for God and His people.”
Bill Johnson
Senior Pastor, Bethel Church, Redding, California 

Hannah Ford is one of the most wonderful and solid worship leaders I know.  My wife, Heather, and I have been pioneering and pastoring churches overseas for over twenty years in Central America and Europe.  We recently relocated to beautiful San Diego with our four children to plant a new work downtown in Balboa Park.  With all of the challenges of starting a new work in a new town without knowing a single person, we were more than blessed to have Hannah be willing to come and help us.  I’m not even sure how we met, but I’m so very glad we did. Hannah, and her servant-hearted husband Gino, have been reliable partners in the Harbor Church. We love them dearly and recommend them highly.  I can always depend upon Hannah to bring the Glory of God into a meeting. She is truly a veteran worship leader who knows what The Lord is looking for and what the congregation is needing…every time!  Reminds me of the living creatures before the throne of God having eyes before and behind. She can work between heaven and earth at the same time and bring the two together in a church service.  Her heart is obviously so in tune with God on Sundays because of her relationship with Him Monday through Saturday.  Having pastored cutting edge churches in three different nations now, I can tell you that its not so easy to find someone who is so easy to work with, having a desire to build God’s Kingdom and not their own.  Hannah is that person.
Kevin Sanford, Pastor, The Harbor Church, San Diego, California 

Hi “Hannah Friends”! This is Mary Jones, the pastor’s wife for SBCC where Hannah was the speaker and worship leader for our women’s retreat this past weekend. I just want to say that Hannah is AWESOME … really! I truly fell in love with her genuine spirit, her worship style and songs, her love for the Lord, her playful (sometimes goofy – in a good way – ha) personality, and her love for people. If you are looking for someone to use as a speaker/worship leader, Hannah is someone I would highly recommend! She will bless your socks off!

Hannah Ford is an extremely gifted musician in both the vocal area and the guitar.  I have purchased and listened to the three CD’s she has produced to date. I can attest to not only her exemplary skills as a recording artist, but also to her talent as a writer of contemporary Christian music.  Her music is well grounded in Scripture and arranged in a manner that is relevant and speaks well to all generations of contemporary culture.

 Although her talent and use of that talent for the Kingdom is extraordinary, I am equally, if not more, impressed by her ministry as a worship leader in a local church.  Far too often, gifted and talented musicians can lapse into performance modes rather than leading the people of God in authentic worship of their Father and King. Worship at La Jolla Christian Fellowship under her leadership consistently brings the participant into the intimacy of God as Father while maintaining the attitude of awe that should accompany our response to Him as King.

 Ms. Hannah Ford is one of the most talented singers, writers, and all around performers that it has been my privilege to know.  However, it is more important to note that all of this is communicated in one of the most authentic personal expressions of Christianity I have experienced.  I highly recommend her with no reservation.

I’ve ministered several times when Hannah was the worship leader I worked with. I thought she was outstanding.  While a skilled singer and musician she also had a style that I personally liked. More important than her skill in music was her ability to help me and the congregation move into what I would call a closer connection to God and to emotionally feel His presence.  Hannah has a heart and hunger to serve and minister through worship.  She helps others to do that with her gifts.

Senior Pastor, His Dwelling Place 

“Since Hannah Ford won the 2003 Fish and KKLA Starfish competition in Southern California, God has used her music all over the world. From Russia, to Mexico,the Philippines, Morocco, US prisons, churches, and much more, her ministry of evangelism and worship are powerful. Not only that, she’s super talented and her music rocks! Her passionate and unique sound complement her powerful songwriting. If you want to hear music that is filled with contagious passion for God don’t miss out by overlooking this artist! Hannah’s first album helped her to win the Starfish competition, but this next one is even better! Buy the album, book her, and prepare to be blessed!”
Reba Toney, 95.9 The Fish, LA Radio DJ

“I am blown away by Hannah’s commitment and determination to live out her calling! Fervency is Hannah’s best work yet! These are not songs written just for the sake of writing songs but seem to come sincerely from the depths of her heart. I also enjoyed the sound and vibe of the production…Hannah Ford radiates God’s joy and hope as she worships. Through her musical gifts and passionate heart God works in powerful ways.””
Tommy Walker, Integrity Music

“Hannah Ford combines tremendous giftedness with a deep walk with Christ.  She was an outstanding encouragement to our church!”
Glenn Gunderson, Senior Pastor,  Pomona First Baptist Church, Pomona, California

“Hannah Ford’s ‘Fervency’ CD is a well performed, well produced collection of songs. I’m really impressed! (and that from a music veteran.) However, it’s her message that gives her songs their eternal significance. She sings about God as though she knows Him personally and expects great things from Him. And I believe her! Her voice is compelling, the arrangements are quite good and the songs are… there… in the pocket; good lyrics, good melodies, good hooks. Normally, one judges independent artists on a lower scale than ‘record company’ projects, but I would put this album against anything I’ve heard from Nashville in the last year. Good on yer, lass!”
Bob Kilpatrick, “My Time Out” Devotional Show, K-LOVE Radio

“I have known Hannah Ford and her family for many years now. Not only is Hannah a godly woman that loves Jesus Christ with all her heart, she also has an angelic voice that glorifies God through singing her songs of praise to our King. She is a great song writer and musician.  She also has an anointing and gifting to invite the Sweet Presence of our Lord in times of worship. She has done special music at our Banquet at Spirit West Coast, Del Mar, CA twice now, and has led worship for our Baja Christian Ministries support teams when we partnered with TeenMania–Global Expeditions in Baja Blast 1000 in 2005 and three years of Baja Blasts in each year that followed.  She is an inspiration and blessing to the body of Christ and has a heart for evangelism and for missions. I’m honored to write an endorsement on her behalf.”

“Hannah Ford – Beautiful Love. One of the few albums that you can just put on and enjoy every song, the whole project is bursting at the seams with well-crafted tunes that you actually want to listen to again and again. Songs like “Beautiful Love” and “Rain in the Desert” makes you glad to be alive and thankful The Lord is in control.

Over the years The Worship Café.com has seen its share of artists from the guy next door to national headlining acts and few have made the kind of impact that Hannah made during her performance and interview and continues to make via her album.
I am truly thankful for the blessing Hannah has been to my listeners and me. Artists who wear their heart on their sleeve and are transparent are few and far between, but Hannah ford is different. Just listen it all comes across in her music and in person.
Thanks again Hannah.”
Jymi Stewart, TheWorshipCafe, KWAVE Radio

Hannah is a very special person who has the beautiful gift of composing lyrics and music together to bring glory to God.  Her love for Jesus Christ and His word is evident in her music, along with her love for missions and evangelism.  Hannah has been our musical guest at special outreaches for our women’s ministry and singles’ ministry at Calvary Chapel South Bay.  Every time she performs it is done with an honest and transparent heart, sharing her lover for Jesus Christ and for His word.  She loves to worship and is very easy to work with, always looking for opportunities to serve the body of Christ.  It has been a pleasure getting to know Hannah and we have enjoyed working with her.  I wish her my very best as she pursues her dreams and continues to use her talents for the Lord.
Steve Mays, Senior Pastor, Calvary Chapel, SouthBay

“Hannah’s deep love and commitment to the Lord comes through in her music….and everyone is blessed. She has a passion to use her God-given gifts to reach others for Christ. She is a very talented singer, songwriter, and guitar player. Her audience is immediately drawn to her warm, sensitive, and caring music outreach…Jesus shines through her presentation. Hannah is a Christian professional with a heart of evangelism and her music ministry is powerful.”
Elaine Mercer, World Vision International, Monrovia, CA

“I have had the pleasure of getting to know Hannah Ford both as an artist at the LifeLight Festival and through the Unlock the Power Tour that she was on. First of all, she is musically extremely talented; she has a gift of connecting with the audience that cannot be conveyed through just a CD. Most importantly for us, she is so ministry focused.”
Alan Greene Founder, LifeLight Communications, Sioux Falls, SD

“Hannah has a genuineness for the Lord that speaks well of her heart.  Her music is a reflection of that heart after God.  Her sweet voice of gentleness, yet powerful messages of her love for her Savior ministers to the souls of her listeners.  We had her lead in some worship and share her testimony through her music at our Women’s Retreat.  Her approach to worship led our ladies into a precious time with our Father during the services and our Praise and Prayer time.  Many ladies of all ages were able to interact with her, and also, share in her future opportunities of ministry through prayer and internet access.  Thanks, Hannah for being an instrument of His praise to our ladies.”
Cheryl Newberry, Pastor’s wife of Calvary Chapel San Diego

Hannah’s new album “Fervency” is a breath of fresh air in a era where much of the Christian music scene has run out of ideas. “Fervency” is not just another Christian album, but is really a tool that God is using to reveal His heart. I highly recommend this heartfelt, genuine and annointed album, the music is inventive and unique and more importantly the heart behind it releases the presence of God to the listener. I suggest you get it today and be blessed by this gift from heaven.
David Tomberlin, DT Ministries

“Hannah is a breathe of fresh, clean air. She is gifted and has such an amazing heart to boot. When I think of Hannah I think of sincerity in the fullest form”
Lauren Kitchens, KFSH/Los Angeles: Orange County

“On ‘Beautiful Love’, Hannah has lyrics that are thought provoking, searching, and insightful, with that a unique alternative pop sound that hooks you into listening.  It’s no wonder listeners chose her as “Independent Artist of the Year!”
Josh Jacobs, KFSH/ Los Angeles: Orange County

“Hannah is a beautifully talented songwriter and musician.  Her music is amazing and we love it!   It has quality, passion, a richness of worship, a heart of evangelism, a depth, and most of all, her music reflects who she really is.”
Pastor Mark Pickerell, Christian Assembly Church, Los Angeles

“Hannah’s voice has a quality to it that is unique and captivating.  She’s an unqualified hit!”
Jim Dennison, Former Pastoral Staff, Soul Survivor, Watford, England

“Hannah Ford was fantastic.  I will be sending a copy of her CD back east to a Christian radio announcer I know of in St. Louis so he can play it on the air.  Her entire presence was uplifting and powerful.  She actually stole the show, if you will.”
Chaplain Bruce, Prison Chaplain, Heman Stark Youth Correctional Facility, Chino, CA

“…Both the students and I didn’t know what to expect; but when she was finished, there was not one person in the audience who didn’t love what they heard… the music was awesome! Not only was it performed very well, but the style itself was incredible…. She had the entire audience participating with her on one of her songs…She became a friend to the students and ministered to tem the way Christ did… You will not find many people that can combine all of these things so well with such a great resulting effect!”
Joel Wood, Youth pastor, Carson Bible Church, Carson, CA

Hannah Ford is part of a bold, edgy, new breed of radical reformer who’s revelatory insight and prophetic foresight emerge through her music to impact this generation with profound Kingdom encounters. Hannah’s album is more than great music, it is a Holy Spirit journey into the very heart of the Father… a violent act of grace that pulls heaven to earth!
Kris Vallotton, Associate Pastor, Bethel Church, Redding, California

“Hannah participated in several programs bringing the Word of the Lord through song.  We received several letters and calls from various Chaplains in the prisons stating that the prisoners loved and were impacted by Hannah and her music.  Hannah was a true blessing to our ministry and a joy to work with.  As our team prepares to leave California, Hannah will be sorely missed but the memories cherished.”
Terry Hoff, Billy Graham Crusade Associate

“Unique, beautiful and passionate songs with an honest vocal delivery that will hook you.  Such obvious honesty is rare and compelling.  Excellent!” In this day and age of “cookie cutter-formula” songs, sounds and artists, one who listens to a lot of new music has a tendency to
listen for 30 seconds and say, “Next!”  because it’s pretty much all
the same.  Then, one day, as fortune would have it, I had occasion to
listen to Hannah Ford…, and I kept on listening and listening!

Hannah’s melodic music, great lyrics and passionate vocal deliveries
shatter the cookie cutter mold.  Her voice is unique and beautiful,
but best of all:  she is real and her music is real.  You’ll know it
the minute you listen. I get tons of music for free.  Hannah’s CD I’ll buy. Why?  Because
honesty and passion like this are rare and I choose to support them.”
Jeff Straub, Texas Hot Radio

“Hannah Ford is a very talented singer, songwriter and guitar player.  She has a great stage presence.  She has the ability to keep the flow of a show by playing great music, first and foremost, but also by being very engaging and witty between songs.  She also has what seems to be a great relationship with the Lord that shines through her presentation in a very real and appealing way…”
Mike Smith, Jesus Jams Ministries, Los Angeles

“Hannah has an incredible way of connecting to the hearts of those she is ministering to through her music.  She is very real and her stories and music are sincere.  Hannah was all about the ministry of Jesus and I was able to see both young and old respond to her message through song.  We were blessed by the obvious ministry God has given her.”
Jason Lowery, Pastor to Youth and Young Adults, First Baptist Church, Wichita, KS

“Hannah Ford shares her gift of worship with a sweet and honest delivery.  Hannah’s love for her Savior is evident as she expresses her love for Jesus Christ through songs that can only be God inspired. What you see on stage is exactly how Hannah is off stage.  I believe her desire is to share her faith in a fresh, warm and genuine way.  If you will allow her the chance to share with your body of believers, you will receive more than you hoped for.”
Jay Walden,Worship Pastor, Pomona First Baptist
