JOLIET4 used to be a full-time worship leader in the church. She recently took a break from that (and all music), and then developed extreme anxiety and depression after having a baby.  She joined her local church's worship team and then someone introduced me to Smule (a karaoke phone app). JOLIET4 spent some time healing through music again and then she found Twitch Sings when it became public on April 2019.  She’s never done music outside of church events and her car, so this has been an incredible and fun experience.
