"Have Faith" features Mary Testa – the two time Tony Award nominated singer and actress – and Michael Starobin, the Tony Award winning orchestrator and arranger! Listen to a free stream of "Pink" now:



"Have Faith" is a boldly unique and contemporary concept album that addresses issues of faith and doubt from a variety of perspectives, mixing a 1980's pop feel with elements of electronic, classical and folk music. The album features songs by Top 40 artists Alanis Morissette, Prince and Annie Lennox, as well as 1960's legends The Beach Boys and Leonard Cohen. It also includes songs by current musical theater writers William Finn and Michael John LaChiusa, whose work Mary has often introduced on stage. Starobin himself contributes original music to a sparkling new interpretation of “Sonnet 29,” from Shakespeare’s iconic series.

The album was produced by David Baron, with arrangements for the 13-piece band by Mary Testa and Michael Starobin and orchestrations by Starobin. Catherine Rush serves as Executive Producer.
