Bio: Frances Drost is a concert artist and inspirational speaker who began her own company, "Musical Creations" as a way to encourage people on their journey through life. Take years of life experiences distilled into "three-minute messages" of lyric and melody, interwoven with story-telling in between and you get the unique ministry of singer/songwriter Frances Drost.
As both a singer and songwriter, Frances has an unique way of presenting real-life experiences and meaningful messages that are subtly woven throughout her music. In fact, it has been said, "Be careful about inviting Frances to your home; she may write a song about you."
Since we don't really seem to go to each other's homes these days, you could now say, "Be careful about commenting on Frances' Facebook page - she may write a song using your comment." Either way, she finds a way to write music to encourage her audiences using real-life experiences.
