Mason to perform at March 10 prayer breakfast

Two-time Dove Award winner Babbie Mason will be the guest soloist at the 11th annual Cleburne Christian Leadership Prayer Breakfast on March 10 at Cleburne Bible Church.

The community event will also include guest speaker Scott Rigsby, the first double amputee with prosthetic limbs to finish the grueling 140-mile Hawaiian Ironman. 

Tickets to the prayer breakfast, which are $5, must be purchased in advance and are available at the Cleburne Chamber of Commerce or by calling 817-641-7529. Doors open at 6:15 a.m., during which a continental breakfast will be served. The program begins at 6:50.

The daughter of a Baptist preacher, Mason began her music ministry at the age of 9 as her church’s full-time pianist and choir director. Those early years were a sign of what was to come. 

Mason’s musical talents have taken her from Billy Graham Crusades worldwide to Women of Faith, Beth Moore and Ann Graham Lotz conferences, the Grammy Awards and Carnegie Hall. She shared the stage with three U.S. presidents, Bill Cosby, Gen. Colin Powell, Michael Jordan and Jeff Foxworthy.

As a singer and songwriter, her achievements are reflected in numerous nominations for Grammy Awards and Stellar Awards. Mason is an American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers Award winner and has 10 No. 1 singles. In 2010, she was recognized for her contributions to gospel music as an inductee into The Christian Music Hall of Fame.

Her music has been recorded by a variety of artists, including CeCe Winans, Larnelle Harris, The Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir, Gold City Quartet and Legacy Five. Mason’s YouTube performance of her composition, “Pray On” has received more than 300,750 hits.

Her latest endeavor is the completion of a new book, “Embraced by God, Celebrating Who and Whose You Are.” A companion to the book is her 24th music CD, “Embrace.”
