Mar 15, 2011, 16:42 ET from OCP

PORTLAND, Ore., March 15, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The inspirational music of Catholic singer/songwriter Hermana Glenda is now available through OCP. Today, the liturgical publisher announced a partnership with the popular Spanish-language artist to distribute seven of her soul-stirring collections.

"With the ability to open hearts and move them deeply, Hermana Glenda is a gifted artist who travels with a simple message: God loves every one of us," explains Victoria Demezas, Associate Director of Hispanic Ministries at OCP. "People feel his presence with their whole being when she sings and plays. We're so excited to have the opportunity to distribute her music."

Founded in 2008, Hermana Glenda's non-profit organization, "Consuelen a mi Pueblo," is dedicated to helping those in underprivileged countries. Among other things, the organization supports her missionary trips and sponsors shelters for financially challenged families and orphaned children.

"Spreading the Gospel is part of our mission," says OCP Publisher, John Limb. "Hermana Glenda's evangelization efforts fall in line with our core values as a Catholic non-profit. We are honored to distribute the collections of such a dedicated servant of God."

OCP is selling seven of the renowned singer's albums including Live, a virtual passport to experience a faith-filled Hermana Glenda event. Also among the collections for sale is Nuevamente, A Solas con Dios. Containing 18 beautiful re-recordings of the singer's earliest songs—such as the beloved "Nada Es Imposible para Ti"—this enhanced CD offers a host of bonus features including a pastoral workbook with teaching notes, plus lyrics and chords for each song.

Hermana Glenda will be presenting a Spanish-language workshop during this month's LA Religious Education Congress in Anaheim, CA. Her CDs will be available for sale at the OCP booth. Those that cannot attend the event will find all seven of her collections at ocp.org.
