Carla Payne is a Christian vocalist specializing in Adult Contemporary and Inspirational music. In December of 1995, her debut album, Every Secret Of My Heart, was released. It was produced by Greg X Volz, former lead singer of the well-known Christian band Petra. Carla's songs range from upbeat praise songs to highly orchestrated ballads to simple acoustical arrangements.
Carla loves performing because it allows her to share her love for the Lord with others through music and song.

"This is God's ministry for me. Through my singing I can give praise and glory to the Lord because he's been so good to me. I hope my voice will be an instrument through which God will make a difference in people's lives."

Carla has been singing since she was a child and received formal voice training for seven years. She graduated from Southern Wesleyan University in 1988 with a B.S. in Music Education. In 1994, she was a regional vocalist winner for Praise Hymn Soundtracks' "Sing Out America" contest. Carla lives in Morristown, Tennessee with her husband Ed, their son Cameron, their daughter Caitlin, and their two cats: Twinkie and Stuffey.
