Brittany Turner

A wife and a mom of three girls, Brittany is passionate about connecting her generation to the truth of scripture and the love of God; empowering them to live in the abundant life purchased by Christ for all at Calvary.

With a bachelor’s degree from Howard University and a Masters’s degree in Divinity from Regent University, Brittany uses her gifts to help God’s women connect to the truth of scripture and as a result creating a lasting connection and relationship with Christ.

This is the heart behind her platform and the online community she is creating.

Brooke Robertson

Taking My Voice Back, the Burtonwood Records debut from Louisiana-based singer/songwriter Brooke Robertson, released March 27th 2020. Produced by Jeremy Holderfield (Seventh Day Slumber, Nathan Sheridan), the 11-song set—all co-penned by Robertson—showcases buoyant, country-tinged pop anthems alongside poignant ballads, each song a testament to the hope, healing and joy Robertson is embracing along her journey.

The vulnerable, deeply personal title-cut and lead single stands as the album’s centerpiece and marks the first time Robertson has shared her story as a victim of childhood sexual abuse. Harboring her pain for years, writing the song proved a therapeutic process as Robertson was ultimately able to forgive her abuser.

“It was something I promised myself I would never talk about, and for 15 years I was numb to it,” she says of the abuse. “As I was writing the song, I felt in my heart that I needed to contact my abuser. I was able to tell that person I forgave them, and that God forgives and loves them too. To be able to share Jesus with someone who hurt me was something I didn’t even know I needed. I thought all these years I was ok, but there was a deeper healing in store for me, and God knew that.”
