Album Notes
Rising Sun was written and recorded on the Hopi Indian Reservation in Northern Arizona. It was released in 2003 by Terry and Darlene Wildman. Sound of America Records also released this CD as "Rising Son" on their Red Sea Label in 2004. Rising Son was nominated for a Grammy Award in 2004, the first Native American style music nominated in the Pop/Contemporary Christian Music category.

About the Cover
Since ancient times the Native People of North America have been welcoming the sunrise. We believe this practice was inspired by the Creator and was to prepare us to hear the message of God’s love through Jesus Christ. Jesus is called the “sunrise” in Luke 1:78 and in Malachi 4:2 he is prophesied as the “sun of righteousness with healing in his wings”. Jesus’ face shines like the sun at his transfiguration (Matt 17:2) and in the book of Revelation when he appears to the Apostle John (Rev 1:16). In Ezekiel 43:2-4 the glory of the LORD (Yahweh) comes to the temple as the sunrise in the east, and the earth shines with his glory. The scriptures are full of many other references to the sunrise and the coming of the Lord. The Hopi Indians draw the sun with feathers as the rays, the “wings of the sun”. May the Creator shine his face upon you! Psalm 67:1

About the Cover Artist

About “Indian Singing”
Every culture has a special way of singing and making music. The Native’s of North America are known for a unique vocal form that is used in ceremonies, powwows and other social gatherings. The technical term is “vocables”. They are, according to the Hopis, “ancient words of thanksgiving”. When Native People sing it is common to hear in the “vocables” variations of the Hebrew name for God, “Yah” or “Yahweh” that is used throughout the Old Testament in the form of “LORD” in the English bibles.

Rising Sun
As with most of Terry and Darlenes work I loved this CD. Being a non-native listener to it helps me connect to the heart of Terry as a Native American. This is great music to listen to, when in meditation on Gods Word. All of it is able to convey messages to the heart of anyone listening.
