"So Far" as featured on My Gospel Story
To the memory of my favourite singing teacher Grahame McIntosh thank you for encouraging me to sing again.
So Far, its been so good So far through all the joys and scars, you've won the battles in my heart, I long for what, you have in store another opened door, should I stay here or look for more. So far, you've brought me, So far you've taught me So far, that everything I need you are, and now, another turn to take, another choice to make, I can't believe we've come, So Far. You say, the fight has just begun and yet the battles won, by trusting in your holy son, you know , the plans you have for me, I'm trying to believe, but my eyes can only see so far
Hi, I’m Christine Leaves and I want to thank those people who ‘Inspired’ me to come out of hiding and sing again. After my husband passed away I had no desire to sing professionally anymore, but after 20 years I was encouraged to step out again, so I chose to sing Gospel music. The Inspired Tour Launch on 15 September 2019 at the Dural Country Club was ‘My Story – ‘how I discovered Gospel music 38 years ago, going on my solo overseas Concert Tour, why I stopped singing Gospel music and why I am singing it again’. I find that the lyrics are so different from band and piano bar music that I had sung. However after setting up my own Christian Entrepreneurial Business, El Pez in 1982, I wanted to focus more on finding other talent to Manage, Mentor and create more Productions.
Two young ladies that I have been mentoring now for several years came to the Launch, so I asked them to assist me with a finale song which you will see in this brief footage. They are Renae Mockler and Julia Hoban and they are working hard as soloists to pursue careers in the music industry.
Monies from the Inspired Tour Launch were donated to:
$500 Fiji Eye Appeal to assist their Surgeons
$500 Ban Ban Springs QLD to assist with Drought Relief
Next: The Corona Virus has postponed the plans for 2020 Touring, however, after presenting the ‘My Gospel Story’ in Toowoomba in January 2020 with my new backing disc, produced by David Fennell, I am ready to go ‘anywhere’ when normality resumes.I want to find and ‘Inspire’ other Gospel Singers to step out and fill the airwaves again

When Christine Leaves does something, it's boots and all, heart and soul. This concert tour will surely be no different. Driven by her Christian faith and a desire to use her musical talents to help those for whom the drought has hit hard.
