From her website:
Meredith Andrews has always had a gift for writing honest, compelling songs that resonate powerfully with an audience. Over the course of her first two Word albums, people have come to appreciate the Dove Award-winning artist's love for God and her heart for people. She's formed a strong bond with her audience, and yet as open and vulnerable as Andrews has been before, the true heart of this gifted artist is best revealed on her new project Worth it All.
Andrews is a frequent speaker at girls' conferences. "I feel like this is what I want to say to them: 'You are loved and special and God has a purpose for your life. You can hand over your broken pieces to Him. God can take anything broken and make it beautiful.' When we got to the end of the record, I'd written 'Pieces,' but I wasn't going to record it. We almost didn't record it. We literally had one more day in the studio and I looked at my manager and said 'I know that it's not a worship song, but I feel like it has to go on my record. I want to sing it and I want people to hear it.' We all talked about it and discussed where it would fit because I feel like the first 10 songs are a journey hopefully into God's heart, like getting a glimpse of truth, like who He is and 'Pieces' is its own other thing. It's separate. I'm not even going to try to pretend it's a worship song or where it fits in there because that's why we made it a bonus track."
Her incredible vocal gift and intuitive songwriting abilities caught the attention of Word Record executives who signed her to a deal. Her label debut, The Invitation, released in April 2009 and the stirring single "You're Not Alone" helped propel Andrews into the national spotlight. Her sophomore album, As Long As it Takes, bowed in March 2010 and the following spring, it was named "Worship Album of the Year" at the Gospel Music Association's Dove Awards. "How Great is the Love" earned the Dove Award for "Worship Song of the Year."
