Given birth to and raised in Chino, California, modern Christian vocalist/songwriter Moriah Peters was on a far more secular street, auditioning for American Idol. The superstar judges appreciated her functionality but suggested she’d become more believable if she’d “knowledge lifestyle” and “kiss a youngster,” recommendations she felt had been crass and a sure indication she should go back to CCM. Sierra’s Wendi Foy would shortly take curiosity about Peters, hooking her up with administration and reducing a three-song demonstration that would appeal to the Reunion record label. Peters’ documenting debut would need to wait around until after her computer animation debut, because in 2011, Moriah starred as Vana Banana in the Veggie Stories film The Princess & the Pop-Star. Her debut recording, I Select Jesus, would arrive a yr later with creation via Ed Cash.
