Renee Welsch is an accomplished gospel singer who has performed across the United States and Europe and has recorded three albums. Her music has been played on Christian radio nationwide. She has been a music guest for the Trinity Broadcasting Network, Total Christian Television Network, and on Cornerstone Television who described Renee as "one of our most loved music guests". She has performed the national anthem for the Cleveland Indians, has done studio background vocal work and has opened concerts for fellow Christian artists Tammy Trent and Pam Thum. Pam says, "Renee can deliver a song vocally! She's a wonderful communicator. She'll make you laugh. She'll make you cry."

After several years of traveling music ministry, Renee took a 'mommy hiatus' when she and her husband, Scott, answered the call to foster parenting. They have cared for more than twenty foster children and are the proud adoptive parents of two daughters. Now, Renee is back with her new album, 'Songs From the Journey'. She is a frequent guest speaker on the topic of foster care where she uses her music and the stories of her foster children to express the heart of Christ and to be a voice for 'the least of these'. Renee's interview with the 700 Club about her foster/adoptive journey can be streamed at cbn.com or on YouTube.

Every weekend, Renee can be found singing and speaking - at a gospel music event, a women's conference, at a prison, or leading worship as part of the music ministry at her home church in Ohio. Every weekday, Renee can be found dropping her kids off at school.
