Liz Vice didn't set out to be a musician. She'd always wanted to be a filmmaker, but was detoured by illness as a teenager. Vice says her faith helped her through lupus and led her to The Door Of Hope Church in Portland, Ore. There, pastor Josh White, who was also a musician, encouraged her to overcome her fears and sing in church.
White ended up writing a whole album for Vice, which eventually became her wonderfully soulful debut, There's A Light. In today's session, hear her perform music from that record, recorded live in Philadelphia.
