Eva Kroon Pike was chosen. She was a dream before she was ever held and at the tender age of 10 weeks, Eva was adopted into a loving family that had been waiting and praying for 8 years. "These circumstances nurtured Eva into the singer/song writer she is today with an extraordinary spirit, a compassion for people, a passion to share the gospel, a heart for God and an awesome voice" as Dr. Jay Dennis, Pastor, Church at the Mall, Lakeland, Florida states. Her vocals are powerful, yet engaging, versatile and unwavering, melodic and soul wrenching. Diversity describes Eva's music style from contemporary to choral, traditional to country and southern gospel. Eva's life growing up in Central Florida has been influenced by the multiplicity of people which has led to an ability to relate her passions and convictions with soul.
"Grace That Chose Me", the title song of Eva's 2010 album describes the essence of who she is and an ultimate thank you to her parents for choosing her to be a part of their family over 28 years ago. She co-wrote this album together with Don Koch, songwriter/producer from Nashville who continues to play a significant part in her music. Eva's album was released to radio in January 2011. In November of 2012 Eva released her very own Christmas single to radio titled "Christmas Revolution". She had the wonderful opportunity to be a part of 2 RV radio concert tours with Mark Harris of 4Him in October and December of 2012! Eva's newest album titled "Love Is All About You" was released to radio February 2013! "As much as my first album "Grace That Chose Me" impacted my life and those who heard the message through song this new album has had so much more of an impact on my life in just the short time I've had the songs and allowed others to hear them!" Eva is very excited about 2013 and what God has planned for her ministry! Along with her newest album, Eva and her husband, Jonny along with their 4 year old son Jonathan are excited to be welcoming a new addition, another baby boy Corey Elliott, to their family in June. Eva stays busy singing with concerts, community events, patriotic events, festivals, benefits and is always looking for a new adventure and places to sing!
She is an advocate for adoption and has partnered with the Florida Baptist Children's Home, a Christ-centered organization that provides services for abused, neglected, and orphaned children to help promote adoption and their other ministries to help hurting children and families. Her song and music video, "Grace That Chose Me", has been featured on many occasions including the Florida Baptist Convention. "This is one of my greatest accomplishments yet" she states. Eva has also been featured as a lead soloist on 2 recently released albums with the Florida Worship Choir and Orchestra titled "God of the Ages" and "Great I Am" where she sang the title tracks for those albums.
"Music is my passion", says Eva, who's been singing since age 3. In addition, she plays the flute, guitar and keyboard. From singing before Ruth and Anne Graham to Babbie Mason and Mark Harris (4Him), the stage is no stranger to her. She enjoys performing but most of all Eva says she loves "spreading the Gospel, one song at a time". She knows that God has a plan for her life and He chose a very special family for her to grow up in to learn life's lessons. Through her music, she wants more than ever to point people to her loving Father who sent His son to die so that everyone who believes in Him will live eternally. Eva states in her adoption song, "So, if I'm anything close to what I'm meant to be, I owe it to the hands of Grace that chose me".
