JOPLIN, Missouri, Mar. 21 /Christian Newswire/ -- Noah began singing publicly at age five in church. He recorded a three-song demo at age nine and a full Christian album at twelve. Before his thirteenth birthday he was invited to sing for the Winter Jam Tour.
The following year he toured with the Continental Singers, performing across the west coast, 36 concerts in 32 days. He has since shared the stage with such accomplished artists such as New Song, Joy Williams, Bebo Norman, Tait, Rachael Lampa, and Nicole C. Mullin.
But things have not come easy for this unique fifteen-year-old. Noah wasn't your typical kid in school; he struggled with acceptance from his classmates. Never really fitting in with other children growing up in rural Oklahoma, it seemed he was constantly getting teased for his interest in the arts and his disinterest in sports.
Recognizing his creativity, his parents nurtured his talent with encouragement and involved him in American Kids. Over the years Noah is learning to heal from past hurt and use that pain to help others.
Recently Noah finished his debut pop/rock, with a touch of R&B, self-titled album, produced by Dennis Dearing (4 Him). He enjoyed song writing along side multiple Dove award nominee Leonard Alstrom and Kevin Srokes (Avalon). Noah also worked with some of Nashville's best musicians including Casting Crowns, Mercy Me, Steven Curtis Chapman, and Amy Grant.
Homeschooling allows Noah to minister year-round with his parents, Brian and Jodi Barlass, and his younger brother and sister, Nathan and Nicole. The family's ministry, Legacy of Faith, was founded in 2003 as a mission to share Jesus Christ through out the world while being advocates for the family.
Plans are in the praying for a West Coast tour in July or August 2007.
A sample of Noah's music and his interview on "The Wiley Drake Show" will be available online March 22nd 11:30 am CDT at www.crusaderadio.com.
