Willow illuminates this tender, vertically-directed prayer for anointing with her fresh and inviting alto voice, making it keenly personal, yet open and inviting. With its lilting cadence and wistful lyrics, "Overflow" is equal parts intimate prayer and corporate worship.
"This song created one of the high points of my life," says proud papa, Billy Sprague, "to see and hear my daughter deliver her heart and musical gift in the studio like she was born for it. On our cross-country move to Florida in August of 2014, we spent four days recording in Nashville. Willow stood at the mic and delivered every day, spectacular background vocals on half a dozen songs and two lead vocals. During the final days of recording, "Overflow" was the pinnacle of the week - and a Mount Everest experience for me. As you listen, I think you will hear what I mean, and be moved to make this song your own prayer."
"Overflow" is available on Billy Sprague's CD, Songs in the Key of Awe, which is distributed by Elevate Entertainment. For more information about Willow Sprague, "Overflow," Billy Sprague and Songs in the Key of Awe, visit billyspraguemusic.com.

At age 11, she formed the vocal group Harmony Park with three friends in Denver. Together they performed hymns and pop songs and even sang the national anthem for NBA fans at several Denver Nuggets basketball games. The talented pre-teens caught the attention of America's Got Talent, which flew them to Atlanta to perform on the popular TV show, and two years later they brought 5,000 people to their feet in front of the X-Factor judges in Kansas City.
Willow's captivating voice adds harmonies and background vocals to many of the songs onSongs in the Key of Awe, her dad's recently released worship project. She adds background vocals to many of the songs on the CD and shines on lead vocal on two titles: "Overflow," her first CCM radio single, and "Only Jesus" a modern, Celtic-like hymn.
