Album Notes
"Johnson is clearly capable of matching Baez and Collins for vocal power. But what makes her version [of Amazing Grace] so appealing is the understated tenderness she brings to the song..." --The San Diego Union-Tribune

"No question to my ears. Johnson has one of the most beautiful voices I've ever heard." --Mark Gallo, The Beach News.

Deborah Liv Johnson was the third of five children, born to missionary parents in Tanzania, East Africa. Returning to the United States before her first birthday, Johnson was raised in the Mojave desert community of Ridgecrest, California.

Over the years, Johnson has opened concerts for various artists such as Dan Fogelberg, Don McLean, Spyro Gyra, Suzanne Vega, Arlo Guthrie, Nils Lofgren, John Stewart, Rita Coolidge and Janis Ian. She's performed across the country and sung the national anthem for Hillary Clinton.

In August 2001, Johnson was asked to sing at the memorial service of Ely Callaway, founder of Callaway Golf and Callaway Wine. Mr. Callaway carried a copy of Amazing Grace in his wallet and was deeply moved by Johnson's version which was given to him by a hospice nurse during the final weeks of his life.

Softly & Tenderly
Your CD is being much enjoyed by me over the pond here in the UK.
Love your voice.


Awesome, great background music for even a stressful day at work!
I'm an office manager for a church and a leader for a Bible study was using this CD during our prayer time. I found it so moving that I had to have a copy. Now I get questions about it when folks come into my office.


Softly and Tenderly
Excellent. A beautiful voice singing some classic Christian songs. I even bought some copies for my friends.


Softly and Tenderly
I have attended Deborah Liv's concerts over a number of years. She is quite versatile and accomplished in several styles of music. Our church was fortunate to have her perform as part of our music series. Her lovely vocal quality brings a pure sound to these mostly well known hymns. The instrumental accompaniment is varied from song to song but always results in a beautiful arrangement of the hymn that is understated and does not overwhelm the meaning of the words.
