    Amy's full-length freshman project, Looking Up to Him, was inspired by her own need for inner peace and joy. The bible tells us that joy comes in the morning if we would just wait on the Lord. It took Amy several years to complete this project as she struggled to find just the right songs that would fit together, complimenting her theme of "hope," "forgiveness," "true love" found through Jesus Christ, and ultimately, "peace." "What a refuge God Is!" she proclaims.  And she wants everyone to know this.

    Amy brings to this disk, her own unique blend of contemporary pop, R & B, and country. Her soprano voice lends a soft and smooth approach to her message and her words tell you a story from start to finish. You can truly "feel" her and yet, sink into your own sense of reflection. Amy can't say it enough..."Jesus saves!"

    Perhaps you feel a little uninspired and hopeless. Let Amy's God-inspired words and music carry you where your spirit wants to go--needs to go. Allow her music to help you look up to Him, the only One who can carry your load. And with this step, you'll find inner peace as never before.

    Trust the message Amy has given us. Be inspired. Be blessed.

Track Name: All You Need Is Jesus
All You Need Is Jesus
Words & Music by Amy Marie Cheema

Verse 1
Is your mind filled with jealousy
Are you imprisoned with doubt and insecurity
And are you really happy or is there something missing deep within
It’s God you need on the inside to have His peace on the outside

CHORUS
All you need is Jesus, His love outweighs the rest
All you need is Jesus, His Word is far the best
Nowhere to run to, you can't hide
He is the answer, let His Spirit be your guide

Verse 2
You don’t have to impress me much with your fancy car
Don't you know driving the fast lane won't get you far
And are you really happy, well what's it going to take to get you there
It's not what you have on the outside, but where God is on the inside

CHORUS

Bridge
What are you going to say
When you meet God face to face
How do you treat your fellow man
Do you live life according to His plan

CHORUS
Track Name: You Haven't Walked In My Shoes
You Haven’t Walked In My Shoes
Words & Music by Amy Marie Cheema

Verse 1
Who are you to criticize me, who are you to judge
Who are you to point your finger
You’re not the perfect one, and you’re not sinless
God loves you still…

Verse 2
If you look beyond this makeup, you’ll see a fragile little girl
I can hide and no one finds me
But my God who knows me well, and I’m not sinless
God loves me still…

CHORUS
You haven’t walked in my shoes
You don’t know what I’ve been through
You can’t get inside my head
I don’t expect you to understand
Can you accept me, and love me as I am

Verse 3
Thank you, Lord, for your acceptance, Your love is unconditional
You love me just like a sparrow
You made my broken wings take flight
Can you accept me, and love me as I am

CHORUS
Track Name: Reach Out
Reach Out

Verse 1
What price are you gonna pay for fame and fortune
I know there's a better way to grab the big brass ring

CHORUS
Reach out and take it, it's free
You can put life in the palm of His hand
Just believe in God and see

Verse 2
It's time to evaluate what's important
I know there's a better way to grab the big brass ring

CHORUS

BRIDGE
Life's too precious so count your blessings
Hold your head up high, God’s promise is alive
All who will believe will gain His glory
Have faith in God and see, wait and see

Verse 1:
The light living inside of me
Is a gift of love that came from Jesus Christ
And you can have His gift of love

Soon your life will go through many changes
You won't notice the rewards right away
The battle in this world is just beginning
You'll win the war with Jesus on your side

Jesus, You are my shining star
You're everything a gift I cannot buy
And I'm so grateful that You live inside of me
You're my hope and happiness I can't deny

The light living inside of me

The light living inside of me
Is a gift of love that came from Jesus Christ
And you can have His gift of love
If you’ll open up your heart He’ll come inside
If you’ll open up your heart He’ll come inside
The light inside

By My Side

Verse 1
Black as night, I feel Your love
I'm not afraid, Your light's above
When I call Your name
I’m asking for Your presence
Jesus, Jesus

Verse 2
This captive heart will sail someday
To a better place in God's own way
I won't be afraid
When I'm in Your presence
Jesus, Jesus

CHORUS
Jesus
Even in the dark Your love comes shining through
Never failing, right here by my side
I don't know where I'd be without You
Always and forever by my side

Verse 3
This place up there will have no pain
Everybody's all the same, no life's in vain
I'm heaven bound
Asking for Your presence
Jesus, Jesus

By my side

Jesus, Oh, Oh
Track Name: God Freed My Soul
God Freed My Soul
Words & Music by Amy Marie Cheema


Verse 1
I was fooling myself, I took off my disguise
My face can’t lie, the pain was hard to hide
I poured out my heart, an angel heard my cry
God can do miracles, His love for you is alive

CHORUS
God freed my soul from its grief
He showed me love in a world of deceit
Satin blinded my eyes for a while
God brought me out of darkness
And made me see the light
Oh yes He did

Verse 2
I’m true to myself, I don’t need to pretend
I’m better than that, I won’t be fooled by sin
My future is bright, mistakes are in the past
God can do miracles, His love for me will last

CHORUS

BRIDGE
Temptation is just around the corner
You’ve gotta be strong to fight the devil’s charm
It’s not easy so build yourself an armor
God can do miracles, His love will keep you safe from harm
Ooh---------

CHORUS

The love of Jesus shining on you
Shining on me for all the world to see
The love of Jesus shining on you
Shining on me to set your spirit free
Track Name: Looking Up To Him
Looking Up To Him
Words & Music by Amy Marie Cheema


Verse 1
Everyone needs a role model to look up to
God for me is the perfect one
Whatever your past experience it doesn’t matter
God gives you the chance to be reborn

CHORUS
Looking up to Him, He is my idol
God’s the only One, God’s the only One
Looking up to Him, He is my hero
God won’t steer you wrong, He won’t steer you wrong

Verse 2
Well I can’t sleep, I’m all fired up, I feel like shouting
I’m so free God is good to me
We’ve got problems, God knows what it is, and how to solve them
Trust in Him, put your mind at ease

CHORUS

BRIDGE
I’ve been on that road before
Not a straight and narrow path
Now I’m riding high on God
He’s a leader of the pack

CHORUS

Take God as your role model. You cannot go wrong. He loves us so much.
Place God in the center of your life. Focus on God. He’s given me peace. By the blood of Jesus Christ I’ve been forgiven. What a wonderful feeling that is. Life is so much easier knowing that no human being can possibly match God’s role. There are no expectations in people. My hope in prayer would be that everyone would some day make a hero out of God.
Track Name: Let It Go
Let It Go
Words & Music by Amy Marie Cheema

Verse 1
Lord, you know it hasn’t been easy
I admit, I haven’t put You first
But you know, You didn’t make me perfect
You were there through the lessons I have learned

CHORUS
Let it go, I let it go
The anger I held deep inside was weighing me down
Let it go, I let it go
Jesus, You repaired my heart and called me Your own

Verse 2
Lord, your love is so much deeper
Than any love I’ve ever felt before
And with You, my life is so much better
I was sinking fast, You handed me an ore

CHORUS

BRIDGE
Jesus, you are merciful and mighty
You picked me up and made me stand as one
You were there in my darkest hour
And You said, You said I’d never be alone

CHORUS
