Biography

Biography

Singing runs in this famous family! Psalmist Ruth Andrea Featherstone, the cousin of the 1st Lady of Motown, Mary Wells, is making her own history in the genre of Gospel music. She was Wells’ travelling companion from 1984-1988. Ruth’s hit single, “Your Love Is So Good” is a contemporary gospel song that is comparable to the Clark Sisters’ “You Brought The Sunshine.” Both have a catchy, somewhat secular beat with uplifting spiritual overtones.

Ruth, originally from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, has “fire in her bones” that sets off sparks when she sings. No matter where she is, she will praise God at all times and with song whenever she is asked. She has been asked to sing for small and large groups, for family, friends and other audiences; and she always obliges because it is another opportunity to uplift and inspire.

Ruth has the “joy of the Lord” that she wishes for everyone. No matter the struggle or problem, Ruth encourages and comforts with prayer and songs of praise. She shares her testimony of how God has been and continues to be her healer, provider, deliverer and commander of her steps.

Ruth is available for tours, openings, special ceremonies and church requests. You can find Ruth’s music on https://store.cdbaby.com/cd/RuthAndreaFeatherstone.

Lyric Sheet

Your Love Is So Good
Verse:
Oh, mmm, yeah
You always been so good to me Jesus
You never left me for a minute, thank you, Jesus,
Even when I strayed always, you always brought me back
Times were real tough, but you put me back on track

Chorus:
You loved me, Lord you die for me
You where there for me
I stayed in the trenches but you pulled me on back
You loved me Lord, you die for me
You where there for me, your love is so good
I gonna praise you all night
Your love is so good, you are always with me
Your love is so good, you are always with me
You never leave me
Your love is so good, you are always with me
Your love is so good, you are always with me

Verse:
I am glad you set me free Jesus
On Calvary you died, thank you Jesus
Sinking in sin, your love saved me
Free me from the enemy, I am walking in victory, yeah

Repeat Chorus, adlib, fade out

Where You Go I Will Follow
Verse:
You and I will always be
Together forever throughout eternity
I know we are blessed by God
I can hear the Angels rejoicing above

Chorus:
And where you go, I will follow
When you lay down to rest
You shall lie across my breast
And no one will come between us
Because our love is in Christ, Jesus

Verse:
You and I will always be
In love forever sharing one another’s destiny
Together we’ll stand upon the word of God
Teaching our family to walk in victory

Chorus:
And where you go, I will follow
When you lay down to rest
You shall lie across my breast
And no one will come between us
Because our love is in Christ, Jesus

Bridge:
You and I will always be
Together forever
Blessed by God
The world would see
That you and I were meant to be

And where you go, I will follow
When you lay down to rest
You shall lie across my breast
And no one will come between us
Because our love is in Christ, Jesus

And no one will come between us
Cause our love is in Christ, Jesus (repeat twice)
