A local teacher from Springs Christian Academy will see a lifelong dream come true tonight when she releases her first CD.

Katrina Van Humbeck is a Winnipeg based Music & Drama Educator who has worked in both the public and private school. Katrina enjoys the freedom of talking to her students about God's love and His power in their lives.

She attends Springs Church along with her husband, Marc, and their three sons. She enjoys volunteering in the Worship Choir at Springs.

Katrina is just releasing her debut album of originals, Blue & Beyond-A Story of Longing, Love, Loss and Beyond. Although she has been a singer most of her life, Katrina recently started songwriting eight months ago, shortly after her mother's death. Katrina's song, "I'll Watch You Go," speaks of her mother's death and the joys of heaven.

The album, Blue & Beyond, is a Jazz album infused with elements of classical and Musical Theatre. Her music is placed into a story of Longing, Love, Loss and Beyond, which she hopes many people will be able relate to. She imagines that people will find themselves in these songs, and that they may be stirred to laugh or perhaps even cry when they listen.

Katrina's CD Release Concert is this Wednesday, February 22nd (7:30 pm) at The Park Theatre. Tickets are still available and may be purchased here.
