Elizabeth South is a Christian singer/songwriter who is also a full-time elementary music and drama teacher. She pursues her goal of a worldwide music ministry with as much passion as she always devotes to her teaching. Elizabeth's debut soft rock/pop album, 'The Mysteries of Our Minds,' which she co-wrote with her producer Billy Smiley (White Heart), explored the eclectic styles of theater, spirituality, romance, ballad, and soft rock. Her successful radio single, "Have Faith" made an impact in the Christian music world after landing a top spot in Christian Radio Weekly. "Do It Afraid" is Elizabeth South's long anticipated Christian sophomore album. The inspiration for the song and album title, 'Do It Afraid,' came to her after she surprisingly developed stage fright several years ago after going through a difficult annulment. One morning when she was terrified of a particular upcoming performance, she read a devotional and book written by Joyce Meyer that was called, Do It Afraid. She was immediately inspired to write the song, "Do It Afraid," after reading that devotion and the book. She sat down at the piano that very morning and started writing the verse to the song, which led her down the road to recording this new album and song!! In Joyce Meyer's book, Do It Afraid, she shares the true life story of Elisabeth Elliot's fear of returning to the ministry in Ecuador after her husband, Jim Elliot, had been killed by the very people they had ministered to. She was paralyzed by the feelings of fear and every time she tried to go back into ministry, her fear stopped her. Then a friend told her something that set her free. Her friend said, "Why don't you do it afraid?" She then followed that advice and went back to evangelize the Indian tribes of Ecuador, including the very people who had killed the one she loved. Many times we think we should wait to do something we feel called to do when we are no longer feeling afraid. The concept of "no fear" has become a popular motto. And while that is a wonderful idea, many of us have a difficult time getting rid of those feelings no matter how much we pray or believe. But if we wait until we no longer feel afraid, we may accomplish very little for God, others, and ourselves. So even if you feel afraid, go ahead and do what God has called you to do, knowing that He will always be with you, even if you have to do it afraid! Since writing and performing this song, Elizabeth has found strength in the song while facing her own ongoing fears. And in return, the song and album has already been an encouragement to many other people as well. Elizabeth has a degree in Music Therapy and is finding that she is able to practice this field through her music even though she is not practicing it as an official career. Elizabeth released her first single, "I Will Trust You," off the "Do It Afraid" album about a year before this new Album's release by filming a Music Video for it, releasing it as a Single, and gaining significant Radio Air time. The single was on the Billboards twice for most added to stations. It is still continuing to make an impact today through her second Music Video for this song that can be found on her Youtube page. Elizabeth is very excited to have her "I Will Trust You" Music Video and the new "Do It Afraid" album featured in the INTERLINC Music Video Loop and YLO Youth Leader's Catalog this coming year!! Reaching youth groups through her music along with being an elementary music/drama teacher is a very important combination to her. Elizabeth's latest Single off the "Do It Afraid" album is called, "Don't Give Up On Your Love." Her third official Music Video was filmed in Nashville, TN for "Don't Give Up On Your Love." The single was released a few weeks before the New Album was released. However, the song is also being offered here on the "Do It Afraid" Album as a Bonus track because the song expresses a pop/rock/electronic dance style that is a different genre that the rest of the album. However, the lyrics to the song fit very well into the "Do It Afraid" theme of the a
