Kelli Reisen

Kelli’s heart is that of her family. She resides in her hometown of Cincinnati, Ohio, ensconced in the sanctuary of family, for her parents live down the street and her sister and her family just a few moments away. Kelli and her husband Brian have three children Alton, Isabella, Hillary Kate, three Airedales, Augustine, Albie and Ogden, and a sole chinchilla named Mango. 
Kelli can’t remember a time when she didn’t love the Lord, music or people! Her first foray onto the music scene was when she was fifteen years old and was highlighted on a children’s Christian album produced by Word Records, entitled, Welcome to the Human Race.

Her musical pursuit propelled her onward to Olivet Nazarene University so she could become a member of the widely acclaimed Orpheus Choir which was featured annually at Bill and Gloria Gaither’s Homecoming events in Indianapolis. She then went on to tour the nation with the international group The Discovery Singers, performing the musical presentation of the life of Fanny Crosby. After college she was presented with the incredible opportunity to sing the theme song and love song on two made for television movies for ABC After school specials, produced by Brent Havens. For many years Kelli was a Christian recording artist with the Word label working with producers Jon and Dino Elefante, Dan Posthuma and Don Koch. Her time with Word produced two albums, Dream of a Lifetime, and Someday, and a song on the Rock Power Praise Hymns album. She was also featured on a compilation lullaby album by discovery records, and sang background vocals on albums for other artist. These albums garnered her six top ten hits on the charts, numerous concerts with the top talent in Christian music, Larnelle Harris, Jars of Clay, Angelo and Veronica, Bryan Duncan, Bob Carlisle, Wayne Watson, For Him, Phillips Craig and Dean, Mark Lowry etc,, and provided her the platform to travel the country singing in many churches, colleges, women’s conferences, headlining conferences for Focus on the Family conferences and numerous appearances on Dr. Robert Schuler’s Crystal Cathedral.
