LDS Family Releases First CD
Deseret News 16Dec99 A2
By Jerry Johnston

Three singing sisters who began performing together years ago for an MIA June Conference are the musical core of a singing LDS family who have just released a CD. The Allen Family is extended group of talented performers, now up to 24 in number.

Mom Dixie Allen says while some of naturally musical, the rest have worked hard to develop their talents. "I never let them just bang on a drum or bang on the piano when they were little. They had to try to play something."

The family held an open house in Farmington, Utah, recently to launch their holiday offering "Our Gift of Christmas." It includes a variety of familiar tunes, along with an original number written by Dixie Allen.

As for what the future may hold, Dixie says, "In this family, whatever the kids do depends on God and their desires."
