Lydia's Story: (check out Lydia's artist bio on the "about" page)
Lydia has been singing since she came out of the womb. She was a twin but her twin died in utero. The doctors told her parent's to abort her, as the risk was too high. Lydia's Norwegian mom rose up in defiance and refused to follow doctors’ orders. Instead, she prayed and believed in faith that her baby would live. For the remainder of the pregnancy, Lydia’s mom sang over her and declared that Lydia would be a worshipper.
Growing up everything was a microphone to Lydia! As a young girl, she was always singing and her voice developed with power and strength. Her powerful voice has impacted many. Lydia has used her gift in choirs in both the United States and Norway, in the studio, in the church, and beyond.
In 2001 Lydia met Scott Ingegneri, a musician and worship pastor in Phoenix, AZ. They married in 2003 and together have been honored and blessed to use their musical gifts to lead worship across the globe.
Scott and Lydia have 4 children that love to sing and are very musical as well. Within the last year Lydia has sung the National Anthem for the Arizona Diamondbacks. She also sang at the lighting of the tallest Christmas tree in the United States with over 30,000 in attendance. She continues to lead worship at her church, and for conferences and retreat. Lydia and her husband Scott are signed songwriters with The Rain Collective in Nashville, TN and write regularly for the Church as well as other Christian and Worship artists.
