Kitty Cleveland

Kitty Cleveland is a song writer and singer. In an adoration chapel in 1998 she searched for God during a devastating family crisis. She clearly heard the Lord call her to be a “music missionary.” Kitty answered the call and has since released 12 CDs of music and prayer. Her latest CD Hail Holy Queen was the first of her CDs to climb the secular billboard chart. She has appeared numerous times on television, radio, and in concert. Kitty is married and has a teen daughter whom they adopted from China. Her music brings healing and encouragement with her loving personality and delightful humor.

Kitty spoke and sang for the Helena Catholic Women’s Conference in 2016. We are excited to have Kitty return being our music minister in 2023.
