Rel Lynn Music
With over 25 years of performance experience, Rel brings a soulful and seasoned sound to every occasion. Communicative, warm and punctual, Rel delights in collaborating with event planners to ensure the music is just right. Rel is blessed to have sung in a variety of venues from churches, youth retreats, weddings, funerals, and more. It is truly an honor for her to use the gift of song to add joy and hope to these special occasions. She can provide vocals and guitar accompaniment for most daytime events held between the hours of 9am to Noon Monday through Friday within ten miles of
Riverside, CA. If your event falls outside of these parameters, you are still welcome to inquire.
Thank you in advance for considering me for your special occasion. My name is Rel, and it is a privilege to serve you. Currently, I am a worship leader for several churches which has provided me ample experience playing for various celebrations both religious and secular. In addition, I am a music instructor for a neighboring city working with people of all ages and backgrounds. Though I am most knowledgeable in singing worship songs, I am also fluent in pop, Broadway, oldies, Christmas carols, Gospel, and traditional hymns. I’ve provided a list of songs I’m most requested to sing under the “set list” section. However, if you have a specific list of songs you’d like for me to sing for your event, please send the title and performer of each of these songs to me, and I can let you know if I am able to learn them in time for your gathering.
Before booking me, please send me a message with specific details of your event:
1) type of event (I.e., funeral, wedding, etc.) and desired dress attire (semi-casual, business, festive, standard black for funerals, etc.)
2) exact address
3) number of attendees
4) length of time you would like me to be sing
5) what time you’d like me to begin and end. Please send a schedule of events if you have specific time frames you’d like me to sing (for example, a few songs in the beginning, middle, and end at a holiday party, the entire time as background music, etc).
6) list of songs you’d like me to sing (if you have something specific in mind that is). For funerals, please let me know if you desire all religious/Christian music, non-religious/secular music or a mixture of the two.
7) if the event is indoors or outdoors
8) what kind of sound equipment you have to amplify my voice and guitar
Once I receive responses to all 8 of these questions, I will be able to provide you with a quote and let you know if I am available and able to meet your needs. Thank you again for considering me for your event. Blessings!

Come as You are
I wrote "Come as You are", because I encountered so many people who felt like they were not good enough. So many times we feel like we are nothing. We compare ourselves to others and may erroneously think, "He/she is more good looking, intelligent, gifted, popular, has a nicer car, better boyfriend, better family, probably even a better life!" In the midst of our insecurities, we forget the blessings we have in our own lives and more so, we become blinded from the truth which is that God accepts us for who we are and as we are. We are wonderfully and fearfully made in His image and likeness. We are perfect just as He created us!! Next time you feel the urge to critcize something about yourself, remember this verse, "You are all beautiful, my beloved, and there is no blemish in you" (Song of Songs 4:7). God loves everything about us and invites us to come as we are.
"Let Me Fly" was written when I was in college in 2009. It was for my composition class, and my atheist (or so I thought) professor inspired me by saying, "Your lyrics are good, but don't you want your music to bring people to God as well? You write beautifully about allowing God into your life, but your music should do the same. When you compose the music, you should write it with the same passion that will hopefully inspire listeners to love God as much as you do." My professor taught me how to move the bass lines to add dimension to the song and how to arrange the music in a way that added to the lyrics, and what you hear on this video is the result of his constructive criticism! I pray and hope that the music God has laid on my heart will one day lead others to Him! Let go of any fears that hinder you from answering His call, and allow Him to let you fly! :-)
Until You Call
Let Me Fly
I wrote this about 4 years ago when I was unbelievably confused with what God was calling me to do with this life He has blessed me with. I spent all of high school and college preparing for a dream that never came to fruition, and I became frustrated because of all the time I felt I "wasted." More specifically, frustrated because I had a desire to do something meaningful and just didn't know what that something was.
This song, like all the songs I've written thus so far, is a prayer to God- a prayer to help me understand His will for the life He graced me with.
For all of you who are at that place right now, I urge you not to give up. GOD HEARS YOU! He knows your struggles and He will reveal His plan in His time not ours. But when He finally does...you can expect it to be AmAzInG.
After a year and a half of prayer, God revealed to me what He was calling me to do- spread the faith I have with those around me and lead them to God. Yes, I became a Youth Minister, and it is more beautiful than I could have ever imagined myself doing.
Continue to discern and God will reveal it to you. Until then, keep praying!
Have you ever just woke up one day feeling incredibly blessed by God? This is what I was feeling when I wrote this song. Whether it is through ministry, serving others, or suddenly being aware of the many graces you have been given, God is continually reminding us that He is here...He walks with us...and even more so, He loves us soooo much! Sometimes while I am hiking, I'll be taken aback by the beauty of God's creation or I'll be walking down a street and a little girl with a polka dotted dress will greet me with the biggest grin...all of these moments, I feel is God speaking to me, saying, "You are not alone and I am always with you!" I find my joy in Christ...and nothing can get me out of the darkness except for Him! Thank you, Jesus!!!
