In a world full of empty beauty, false satisfaction and deceit there’s
a search going on for what is real. Real hope, Real peace, Real joy,
At the age of nineteen, Quimi (pronounced "kee-mee") pours out her
heart and soul through rocking vocals and a guitar to show what she
knows to be real. “In the past few years of my life, I’ve found out
that there are a lot of things I don’t know...” Quimi says smiling.
“…but I can tell you two things that I have found out that I do know:
Jesus Christ is the only real love that I have ever known and He has a
real plan and purpose for my life and for your life.”
The soft-spoken yet enthusiastic
singer/songwriter is stepping out for the first time with her
self-titled debut CD. She has been writing songs for five years and
playing guitar for four years but singing was not always in her plan.
Quimi played tennis for her entire life until she turned 16 when she
officially put down her racquet to pick up the guitar. Quimi says, “I
started playing tennis when I was four and when I was nine I started
playing in tournaments every weekend. Tennis was what I did and it was
what I thought I was going to be doing my whole life.” Being ranked in
Northern California and Nationally, tennis was in Quimi’s plans but God
had other plans. She started singing in church when she was twelve
years old and when she was fifteen her parents bought her first guitar.
Immediately, Quimi started learning to play worship songs and writing
her own songs on her new guitar. “Although it was a hard decision for
me and my family, we knew that God wanted me to quit playing tennis to
start playing music.” Quimi recalls.
Driven by charismatic vocals, Quimi’s debut CD
is an eclectic compilation of heartfelt songs seeking after Christ’s
heart. Produced by The Katinas, this CD contains ten songs; seven of
which she wrote, two worship songs and a song written by former
ZoeGirl, Chrissy Katina. The Katinas’ voices lace a few of the songs
while also being featured in the worshipful “All For Love”. Other
tracks include a jazzy “All I Need”, a reggae-fused “Send Down Your
Rain” and a funky little tune called “Speak To Me”. Quimi wrote the
Spanish rock song “Y Sigo” while she was in Mazatlán, Mexico and it
voices our need to know God’s purposes for our lives. “Breakaway”,
written by Chrissy Katina, speaks of the need to leave the past behind
and embrace the grace that God gives to all in Christ.
“I’m so blessed to be able to worship God through music and give back
what He’s given to me.” Quimi expresses, “My prayer is that as people
listen to my music, it will inspire them to seek God’s purpose for
their lives and live wholeheartedly, on fire for Him.” As this CD
showcases the range of her music, it also displays her passion for
singing songs that convey the simple message of truth fighting to be
heard in a world desperately trying to find answers.
