“Every student needs to know and experience the unchanging, deep beauty and value that God created within them”
…says the up and coming singer/songwriter Allison Eide. From the first song she wrote on the family piano at the age of six to her new, nationally released EP, In The Moment, Allison has been following a calling in her heart—to pour into young people to learn about their amazing identity and discover how to live in the truth of how God has made them beautiful. Allison does this with her sweet, rich voice as she communicates her stories with her confident presence. Allison brings the wisdom of an old soul at only 19 years old.
Allison may be new to listeners, but she is not new to singing and leading her audience in a powerful experience. At the age of 10, Allison was leading worship for the women’s Bible study at her church, and continued through age 18. Continuing to write music and perform, this Minnesotan traveled to Nashville at the age of 13 to record her second song, “Don’t Open Those Doors”. That same year she also went on her first tour with her father, Peder Eide, who has been an international singer/songwriter/gospel artist and speaker for 20+ years. Together they traveled and performed nationally bringing families together in congregations in worship for the ALL IN ALL OUT tour back in the Fall of 2013. Directly after the tour finished, Allison decided to create her own business and became a piano educator. This sparked her passion for teaching and speaking. She first spoke at the age of 13 to an audience of elementary students at a church in Ocala Florida. Then, Allison’s dream was starting to become reality.
At the age of 19, Allison has performed and spoken nationally at youth retreats, student ministries, churches, festivals, conferences, including touring every Christmas on Peder Eide’s best-selling Christmas Tour. As she continues to teach piano with students competing in state contests, she also leads worship for student ministries and adult ministries at her home church in Minnesota. Starting in the summer of 2018, the talented musician created and ran Christian camp for young girls to understand their value and beauty within them, grow in leadership and discipleship, and how they can pour that love and truth out into the world. It was called the Identity in Christ Camp. This ministry has expanded into a ministry called Moment Ministries which withholds the same mission and goal, all while Allison continues to add more ideas that are close to her heart for this ministry. This summer (2019), she has officially launched the Moment Tour, including Hometown Camps and other nation-wide events. Learn more by visiting our “Moment Ministries” tab.
Along with her passion for music, Allison is also a dedicated athlete. Her favorite sport, basketball, has been her love since the age of four. Throughout her high school years, Allison has been awarded many accolades such as three year Conference MVP, four year 1st team all conference and all defensive team, top 10 state rankings in several categories, and has lead her team to a four year undefeated record in their conference. Her junior year of high school, Allison also scored her 1,000 point. She has been praised for her leadership as captain for 3 years on her team. Today, Allison is beyond excited as she continues her basketball career at Bethel University.
On the side, Allison is writing her first historical fiction book. She is thrilled to have the opportunity to share a precious and emotionally accurate story from a brutal time in history. This is a unique project that has been on her heart since she was very young.
In June 2018, Allison released her first debut EP called “In the Moment” along with the official music video for her title track “In the Moment” in August 2018 which is all available now. She also sang and played piano on Peder Eide’s live record “WITH”, and co-wrote two of the songs which was released March 23, 2018.
