Misty Edwards is an American contemporary Christian music musician from Kansas City, Missouri USA.[1]

Background[edit]

The daughter of a music teacher, Edwards began her music career at the age of 19, when she joined the International House of Prayer as an intern. After she joined she was asked to begin playing the piano at their services. In her role as one of the organizational leaders of IHOP–KC, she often leads worship and prayer services.[2] She has also written an article for Charisma.[3]

Edwards frequently incorporates Bible verses into her music, particularly concerning eschatological themes.[2] Her music is often accompanied by a speaker who repeats several biblical phrases periodically.[4] Edwards has released several CDs, one of which is accompanied by an acoustic version.[1] She also plays at the annual Onething conference.[5]
