A collaboration made in heaven, Ava Paige and Katheryn Shipley joined together to release “You Above All.” The song was written in May 2019, at the Global Songwriters Convention. A song driven by Ava, a 15-year-old whose deep connection to God as a source for hope and strength was evident. That strength was tested when Ava was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia. Watching Ava approach every treatment and diagnosis with grace and determination, it has left us in tears and “You Above All” will too.
On the path to a cancer free life, Ava was joined by Katheryn Shipley. Katheryn is a member of the 2021 Color Me Country Class and known for her latest single “You Love Is Enough.” Together something beautiful was born and to celebrate Kathryn, with the help of Ava’s mom, was able to paste the “You Above All” artwork on The Nashville Sign, a billboard for all to see.
Kathryn Shipley says, “I reached out to Ava about a year and a half ago saying let’s do something and she was like sure sounds like fun. It wasn’t in “His” timing I guess the much bigger purpose for this all was in the “works”. And after her performance at the Josie Music Awards and she won as well, I was like I just really felt God shifting me to reach out to her again. And it was a pretty cool moment! She kept pitching different songs she either wrote or was a co-writer on and “You Above All” the demo just hit my heart so hard, yet it was like a fresh breeze across my face. I was like this is the one! And I want you to not only sing on it but play lead acoustic as well”.
