Contact Annette Hills
Annette Hills has been giving inspirational and motivational talks to audiences since 1999. She began her professional singing career in 2009 and has since been acknowledged with awards of distinction. She often combines her inspirational talks with music to deliver spirit-filled encouragement and healing to others.
Annette Hills is an inspirational speaker, recording artist and songwriter. Her album “INSPIRATIONS FROM ANNETTE HILLS” is the winner of the 2012 ALBUM OF THE YEAR AWARD from the Catholic Music Express. In addition, Annette was nominated for Female Vocalist of the Year, and her rendition of “The Prayer” was nominated for Best Song of the Year! Other names in competition for these titles were well known Catholic artist, John Michael Talbot and TV celebrity, Susan Boyle.
One of Annette’s greatest pleasures is giving inspirational talks for the Lord which she often does in combination with her music. Annette's talks will inspire you and capture your heart as she shares her testimony of love. She spent many years raising a family and working at a career as an employment recruiter, but eventually the Lord prompted her to take voice lessons and use her musical talents. Her voice lessons stopped abruptly, however, at the end of one year due to a severe injury which resulted in major surgery. As she gazed at her wheel chair, walker, crutches, and cane, and struggled with physical therapy for the better part of a year, she knew that the Holy Spirit was asking her to bring her healing message to others who were convalescing.
Her talks spread encouraging messages of faith, hope, love, and forgiveness and communicate many of her life experiences, including how the Lord healed her of a major illness and childhood sexual abuse (NOT related in any way to the priest scandal). Her ministry centers on God’s compassion to reach out and bring wholeness to His people. In Annette’s case, scripture proved to be true “…..all things work for good for those who love God, who are called according to His purpose.” (Romans 8:28). When fully recovered from her illness and injury, her new-found ministry led her to present over 100 inspirational programs to the elderly and disabled at convalescent homes, retirement communities, and other venues.
Annette has been acknowledged with interviews from worldwide Radio Maria, from Catholic Music Express Radio, and from St. Joseph Radio. Annette has also had occasions to speak and perform at parishes and ministries throughout the United States including the Magnificat Catholic Women’s Ministry, Christ Renews His Parish weekend programs, Mom’s Ministries, St. Theresa Little Flower Guild, the Legion of Mary, the Young Ladies Institute, the Serra Club, the Catholic Daughters of the Americas, the Intercessors of Divine Mercy, the Knights of Columbus, and at her local Bishop's home for charity events.
She currently has three music albums which are successfully marketed nationwide on the internet through well known music sites. In 2016 she also recorded a devotional Rosary/Chaplet album featuring the Bishop of Orange, the Most Reverend Kevin W. Vann, and four priests. Annette has been active in numerous church activities and organizations including the Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem, the Orange County Pastoral Services Appeal, and the Magnificat Ministry to Catholic Women, to name a few. Annette has provided solo entertainment at the Anaheim Convention Center for the Southern California Renewal Communities Conferences during workshop break sessions, and has had her music displayed for many years at the Los Angeles Religious Education Congress in Anaheim, California.
