One of our own was part of the "I Can Only Imagine" movie craze thanks to the One Voice Children's Choir. Hannah Steinagel was born with craniofacial microsomia and microtia. Her dream was to part of the One Voice Choir. Hannah was able to rise up, overcome many surgeries, obstacles, and pain to make this dream come true. Hannah's whole family is very excited about this extremely positive experience that touched their family.
They never expected it to coincide with the release of the major-motion picture, "I Can Only Imagine." Never could they have imagined that Hannah would be featured in the music video made especially for the release of the film, which is based on the inspiration behind the song written and performed by the contemporary Christian band, MercyMe.
Hannah's mother, Kathie Steinagel, reflects about their experience with One Voice Children's Choir, "This group prayed to know who they could help and through a series of miracles, they found her [Hannah]."
After a bout of sadness after her last surgery, Hannah felt like giving up, but this opportunity made her realize what great things are yet to come! Kathie says of her daughter, "This is the first time in her life that she feels like she belongs to something other than our family. I hope so badly that other organizations like One Voice Children's Choir will be inspired to reach out to other kids like Hannah, who have so much to give, but few opportunities to share it."
The Steinagels hope that you enjoy the videos created to tell Hannah's inspiring story. Kathie says, "It's the only way we can help pay forward their kindness to us." Sharing these videos will help the choir get the funding they need so they can help another child feel valued, validated, and alive with spirit.
