Girard is made up of the daughters and granddaughters of Contemporary Christian Music pioneer, Chuck Girard. In July of 2009, the band sang together for the first time at Calvary Chapel in Costa Mesa as a one-time tribute to their father. Pastor Chuck Smith was so moved that he offered to partner with the girls in the recording of a full length CD, complete with original worship songs and beloved hymns. The heart of Girard is ministry and worship, and the music is filled with the joy, pain, searching and adoration that marks the journey of faith in Christ.
