Annie Karto “I will sing of the mercies of the Lord forever”! Psalm 89:1
As a Catholic singer-songwriter and inspirational speaker, Annie Karto hopes to stir the flame in the Catholic Church through the power of God’s great gift of music. The healing mercy of God is the heart of her music ministry, along with singing of the beautiful sacraments of the Church, and honoring the Blessed Mother Mary. “I love my Catholic faith so very much and I feel it can be felt in the songs Our Lord gives me.” Annie belongs to a lay apostolate called The Eucharistic Apostles of the Divine Mercy, which is an outreach of the Marians of the Immaculate Conception in Stockbridge, Mass. They strive to promote Eucharistic Adoration and bring the Divine Mercy message to a hurting world. She has appeared on EWTN’s Backstage program, and her ministry has taken her to Europe, New Zealand, Africa, Guatemala and Trinidad. The title song of Annie’s hit CD, “Overshadow Me” won an award from UCMVA. “You are a Priest Forever” has encouraged hundreds of priests throughout the country, and has received two apostolic blessings, one from blessed Pope John Paul 11, and Pope Benedict XVI. The purpose of her new CD, “Divine Mercy Flood My Soul,” is to draw listeners closer to the merciful Heart of Jesus. Annie feels the challenge for all of us is to be a bridge of God’s love to close the gap between darkness and light, sadness and joy, despair and hope. She acknowledges that all that is given is pure grace from God.
