Susan Ashton

Susan Rae Hill was born in Irving, TX, on July 17, 1967. The adult contemporary vocalist's first single -- recorded using her mother's maiden name of Ashton to avoid confusion with Kim Hill -- gained an audience with CCM radio listeners around America in 1991, and made her album Wakened by the Wind the biggest-selling debut in the history of the Sparrow label. Ashton reached number one in the Christian charts two more times that year, received a Dove award for New Artist of the Year and won a CCM readers and reporters poll for Best New Artist. Her second album, Angels of Mercy (1992), proved her staying potential: it spawned four CCM number one singles and was nominated for a Grammy in the Best Pop Gospel Album category. Ashton won the 1993 CCM readers award for Favorite Inspirational Album and a reporters poll for Best Female Artist. She narrowly missed capturing Dove awards for Female Vocalist of the Year, Inspirational Recorded Song of the Year and Contemporary Album of the Year. Also in 1993, Susan Ashton married John David Cunningham and released her self-titled third album, with two singles charting number one. She was nominated for a 1994 Dove award in the category Female Vocalist of the Year. Ashton also branched out that year, recording Down the Road with Margaret Becker and Christine Dente. That album was voted the Favorite Inspirational Album and Favorite Vocal Event in the 1995 readers' polls, and was nominated for Dove awards in the Group of the Year and Recorded Music Packaging of the Year categories. Ashton herself was nominated for Female Vocalist of the Year. Susan Ashton's collection of hits, So Far...The Best of Susan Ashton Volume 1, appeared in 1995. The following year, Ashton signed with Chordant and released Distant Call. Closer, her debut for Capitol, followed in mid-1999. ~ John Bush, Rovi

I was blessed to meet Susan at a concert at Prestonwood Baptist Church in 1996. Her music lifted me through a 4-year depression and continues to speak wisdom into my life. I was saddened her foray into country music was unsuccessful and I hope she returns to making outstanding Christian music!


I love the song you sang
"Your Love Is Life To Me"! Just the reminder I needed to hear! You are a blessing to God serving him through your music. Thank you!May God bless you.

Love her music!

Susan changed the Christian music landscape. Her records have held up better than most Christian music artists ever will. Well crafted records, and a voice to match. It's such a shame that she's not doing more music for Christ.

I,ve wished the same desire for another Ashton Becker Dente album!
I enjoy every song and like their diversity in style and sound. I'd like to hear more music from susan as well. Actually all three are missed on the radio waves! They need to pull some of the oldies and mix them with the new hit groups. It would revive the radio stations sound and keep them fresh! There is alot of music out there for variety.
Susan ... you have brought me to my knees thru difficult time. I know you are going to make another album. I will wait patiently for your next arrival debut album.

I agree that I could listen to her all day too! I wish they would do another Ashton Becker Dente album!
Susan's organic sound is so easy to listen to and her lyrics are heartfelt. She is awesome!
I have just about all of Susans' CD's. My favorite one is Closer! Her voice is so awesome, and I love the style of music she sings!
I love Susan's music too! I wish she would come out with another album/cd.
Awesome voice. I only want to listen to her all day!
Oh! How I miss Susan's beautiful voice and her lyrics that are so full of
meaning and heart! I would love to see her make another album. I hope that
she and her family are happy and enjoying the life that Jesus died to give
them.
