Ellee Duke lends her crisp vocals on "Lift Me Out," and equally impressive is "How Can It Be" by Sierra Lauren. Jordan Moyes' voice on the acoustic guitar-driven "O Glorious Day" is smooth as silk.

After "Push and Pull," Cardall's CD closes with "He Knows What He's Doing," featuring the rich, powerful voice of Charley Jenkins, as well as the moving title track "Worth of Souls," where Hess lends her angelic voice once again.

Christian artists come together for the 'Worth of Souls' project to fight suicide, depression 

By Carmen Rasmusen Herbert

Who can tell the value of a soul? Only God, and he has declared that “the worth of souls is great” in his sight (see Doctrine and Covenants 18:10). He created us, his children. He has made it his work and glory “to bring to pass the immortality and eternal life of man” (see Moses 1:39). 

We learn from the scriptures that to have eternal life means to live forever with our Father in Heaven. He gave his Only Begotten Son to die for us, so that his beautiful promise may be fulfilled through the Atonement of Jesus Christ. He, the God of the universe, wants to be with you and with me. 

Life is hard. And there are so many distractions that keep us from remembering what our Father in Heaven wants so badly for us to never forget — that we, as his literal spirit sons and daughters, have immeasurable worth.

But for so many, that is not an easy thing to accept or believe. We live in a time when who we are seems to depend greatly on what we are, or how others feel about us. And it is causing anxiety, depression and feelings of inadequacy to the point of giving up. Comparison is stealing our confidence.

Paul Cardall, an accomplished Billboard pianist, producer and artist, is seeking to change this way of thinking and to fight against these feelings that freeze us with self-doubt and insecurity by counteracting the dark surge of suicidal thoughts through what he knows best: music.

Pianist Paul Cardall to Release First Classical Album 'A New Creation' 

Music News Desk Aug. 26, 2016  

A new heart. A new life. A new creation. These words seem merely platitudes to some, but for internationally acclaimed composer Paul Cardall, they are quite literally the reason he is alive. Cardall, a two time #1 Billboard-charting pianist with 20 studio albums to his credit, is literally a living miracle. 

In 2009, facing congenital heart disease, Paul Cardall was told by cardiologists his defective heart would soon stop beating. But, as a result of a complex heart transplant, after waiting 385 days on the organ donor list, Cardall went on to release two #1 Billboard charting albums. 

Now, with his latest release, A NEW CREATION, Cardall explores a deeper level of spirituality, introducing lyrics and full orchestration into his catalogue for the first time. "Each song on this album is designed to invoke deep spiritual feelings," Cardall notes. "The album represents a journey from innocence at birth, through the ensuing brokenness of the human condition,
