Robin Wolaver is an expert speaker, singer, songwriter and mother. Born into dire poverty and seclusion, her hard work and extensive training led her children to musical excellence at Juilliard and to the founding of the Annie Moses Band.
An award winning lyricist, Robin has been twice nominated for a Dove Award in both the Song of the Year and Best Children’s Musical categories. She has been awarded the honor of Gospel Song of the Year by the American Society of Composers, Authors, and Publishers, (ASCAP), as well as the Nashville Songwriters Association.
Because of her leadership in arts education, and her work developing excellence in the musical skill of her children, Robin is increasingly invited to speak to parents on the subject of nurturing artistic success in children. She effectively and entertainingly details the finer points of raising and nurturing children with any talent and helping them achieve their full potential.
Along with her husband, Bill, she directs a Fine Arts Summer Academy, held at Lipscomb University in Nashville, TN, grooming hundreds of young people from across the United States and Canada for excellence in the arts. The Song of Annie Moses was written not only to provide the public with access to her ability developing the talents of a younger generation, but also to provide readers with a heartwarming and engaging account of her “rags to riches” life experience.
Wolaver holds a Bachelor of Music Degree in Vocal Performance from Oklahoma City University and travels with her family band performing over 80 concerts annually before approximately 100,000 people. The group’s PBS special, “Christmas with the Annie Moses Band,” received over 1,100 hours of airings. Their Christmas album, “This Glorious Christmas,” reached the top ten on Billboard Magazine’s classical crossover chart and was aired on TBN.
