Rita Springer is one of the most gifted worship leaders
to arise over the last ten years. Not only is she able to express herself
beautifully through her poetic lyrics, but she delivers her message
with a passion that is unlike any other. Springer also has the unique
gift of improvising songs on stage at the piano. Her vocals are incredibly
dynamic and are often compared to Melissa Etheridge and Jennifer Knapp.
She is another of the famous "Vineyard songwriters" responsible for
such legendary songs as "Make Us a Prayer," "Fragrant Offering," "Moving
with the Lamb," "You Said," and "Oh How You Love Me."
Rita has been playing the piano and writing music since
she was 11 years old. At that time in her life, she found it very difficult
to talk to others about how she felt about things, but she could always
sing anything to God. She realizes now that the Lord was preparing her
to express herself through music and use it as a tool to minister to
As Springer aged, her involvement in music continued to
grow and she recorded her song "Make Us A Prayer" on the Touching the
Father's Heart #12-Throne of Grace album. This led to her involvement
with Vineyard Music, which then gave her the opportunity to pursue her
calling as a worship leader. She started her own label, Kindred Joy,
and released two independent CDs before signing with Floodgate Records
Rita Springer's Albums include:
To The Moon (Independent)

Springer, a resident of Houston, Texas, travels upwards of 35 weekends
a year. Besides writing, singing, and performing, Rita also spends
time with "Fragrant Oil," the women's ministry conference she started
in April of 2000. Her latest release, Rise Up, is a live album that
captures Rita's passion for unscripted, spontaneous worship and is
taken right from one of the conferences. The album was recorded during
5 days of ministry in New Mexico and is as authentic as it gets. No
effects, no flashy studio tricks. It captures the true, unrefined
worship that Rita Springer is so well known for.

and Lover of my soul."
