Myra Riggs (L) and Sharon Hendrickson(R)
Singing and making melody with our hearts to the Lord!
- Ephesians 5:19
Hearts in Harmony, a duet based in the DFW Metroplex, was formed in late October 2023. Myra and Sharon believe God brought them together and they were delighted to learn things which God already knew they shared in common. Both ladies developed a love for music at an early age, and with much anticipation can hardly wait to see how God uses them to minister to others. In addition to singing as a duet, both ladies have an active solo ministry.
Hearts in Harmony sings various genres of music including Southern Gospel, Country Gospel, Bluegrass Gospel, Contemporary Praise & Worship, as well as the old traditional hymns which we all love. They bring energy and dedication to every engagement, are profoundly serious about their music ministry, and would be honored to come and minister in song at your church services, dedicated events, fundraisers, weddings, or funerals. So why not schedule them today?
A native Texan born in Paris, Myra developed a love for music at age 10 when first introduced to the song "My Favorite Things" during music class. The song's vivid lyrics and the melodious rise and fall of the notes captivated her heart and she was hooked. Looking back now, she believes this could have been prophetic as music did become one of her very favorite things in life. Myra's first solo came at age 11 and during her school years, she sang in mixed choir but soon promoted to an all-girl concert ensemble. In her high school years, Myra initially sang in mixed choir, but soon was invited to audition for the a Capella choir where she gained entrance, which eventually led to UIL competition experience.
Myra received Jesus into her heart in 1995, and since that time she has ministered the Gospel with every opportunity to do so.
She has sung at many weddings as well as countless funerals throughout her ministry including ones for her stepdad, her mother, and most recently in 2017, her husband of 45 years. Myra joined North Texas Gospel Music Ministries in January 2023 and is currently an active member of First Baptist Decatur, singing in the worship choir and serving as a front-line vocalist for Sunday morning service, as well as solo features during church Easter and Christmas productions. Myra's three main objectives in her music ministry are (1) to bring glory to God (2) point the lost to Jesus, and (3) exhort & encourage the body of Christ. She gives all glory, honor, praise and blessing to the only One worthy of all praise.
Although not a native Texan, Sharon got to Texas just as soon as she could, yall! Raised in Olpe, Kansas, Sharon grew up loving music, and some of her fondest memories are singing with her siblings around the family piano while her mother played. Sharon sang all through her high school years in musicals and choruses and continued to do so during college, and later in a community chorus. While living in Kansas, Sharon directed her church choir for over 20 years and outside the church services, sang at weddings and funerals. Sharon also sang in her local chapter of Sweet Adelines for 5 years, competing in regional competitions and special concerts around the area. In 2010, Sharon moved to Fort Worth, Texas, joined Western Hills UMC and sang in the church choir and has sung solo features during church services. Sharon has always considered her main ministry to be praising God through song. Sharon is a current, active member of the North Texas Gospel Music Ministries.
