“Prayer Room”
Sarah Betshabaz
Independent (release date: February 19, 2024)

By Robert M. Marovich

Sarah Betshabaz, a young singer-songwriter from Latvia, accompanies herself on piano on the title track of her new album.

“Prayer Room” is a ballad as intimate and quietly passionate as its subject, that special space where petitions are given air and lifted like balloons toward the Maker. Whether as a musician, songwriter, or singer—her soprano voice is tender and vulnerable—Sarah Betshabaz is captivating.
