Cheryl Ann (Cher) Kelemen

Cheryl Ann – Lead Singer and Tambourine (North Strabane, PA) I grew up in a small town where I have been singing most of my life. My inspiration has always come from my parents and my Aunt growing up who always taught me that nothing is impossible if you only believe in yourself, your dreams and GOD. I also thank my husband and kids for being supportive as well. I especially love when our music touches someone and brings them one step closer to our Lord and Savior.

Mike Benson

Mike – Lead guitarist/Vocals (Bethel Park, PA) I have my dad to thank for starting our family on its musical journey. He was a guitar player, the oldest of six brothers and we always got together for jam sessions with the family. That is where my love of the guitar came to be. One night at an open mic Cross Vision was born. It has been a lot of hard work to get the band up and running, but it has also been a blessing in so many ways. Music is a way of life and I’ve met so many wonderful people along the way. The bible is already written, we just have to interpret it properly......"Cross Vision" Style.

Cheryl Ann – Lead Singer (Canonsburg)

I grew up in a small town where I have been singing most of my life. My inspiration has always come from my parents and my Aunt who always taught me that nothing is impossible if you only believe in yourself, your dreams and GOD. And of course I have to thank my wonderful husband for his love and support too. He has been behind me every step of the way with this great adventure.
My favorite past time and passion is writing songs for our Lord and Savior. I have been doing this for 10 years now. In fact, last year, I put out my very first Album/CD: Once in A Lifetime by Cheryl Ann. If you are interested, you can find out more about my CD and me on: (link). I especially love when I touch someone with my songs and bring them one step closer to our Lord and Savior.
I have always felt God's direction and love in my life. It empowers me!!!!

Mike – Lead guitarist and vocalist (Bethel Park)

I have my dad to thank for starting our family on its musical journey. He was a guitar player, the oldest of six brothers and we always got together for jam sessions with the family. That is where my love of the guitar came to be.
My first high school band was called: "Beyond Time". This was a time of Psychedelic rock and an era of social restlessness in American culture. I was in this band for a years and then moved on to playing with my first Christian band, " The Peace Makers". I was with them for a total of 15 years playing at Resurrection Church. I also dabbled in playing with other rock and bar bands along the way. Then as time went on, I ended up joining another Christian Band, "Heartbeat". Here I rediscovered that music never leaves your soul once you are hooked. I played with their band for about 6 years and made some wonderful friends along the way.
Over the next year, I was playing with a close friend of mine as "Fynline" We would get together and play at coffee houses, open mic's, etc. just for the fun and love of music.
But once again I felt the need to go back and play in a Christian band. One night I met Cheryl at a coffee house. We were able to share our ideas, our beliefs and our visions of what we were both looking for in a band and when we realized that we were on the same page, that night, the band and its name, "Cross Vision" was born. It has been a lot of hard work to get the band up and running, but it has also been a blessing in so many ways. Music is a way of life and I’ve met so many wonderful people along the way. The bible is already written, we just have to interpret it properly......"Cross Vision" Style.

Bob – Bass Guitarist and much more instruments and vocalist (Washington)

I have sung in school choirs since elementary school and church choirs since High School. In college, I sung under Guy Owen Baker in the West Virginia Tech Concert and community choirs. In addition to Cross Vision, I currently sing tenor in the Jefferson Avenue United Methodist choir in Washington, PA; in the Washington Festival Chorale (link); and Celtic music with the Beau Street Players.

I learned piano during elementary school, got my first guitar in eighth grade, taught primarily by my older brother, Don Stark. I got my violin soon after, and my first string bass in 9th grade. In college I played guitar, fiddle, and bass in several West Virginia bluegrass bands as well as the Washington DC Metro area.

I have been known to "Rock the Church" periodically with the West Washington/Jefferson Avenue Fools for Christ youth praise band.

I am a partner at ProTech Professional Technical Services, a supplier of IT Technical training, Systems Management consulting, and software in Monroeville, PA

We first just wanted to reach out to all our fans here at Number 1 Music and beyond and just say thank you once again for listening and also for keeping us on the "Top 100" chart. We greatly appreciate each and every one of you.

We have also been working on some new songs and we were hoping that we could release them soon but we have had a few minor setbacks. Our drummer of 5 years had to leave the band due to personal reasons and we certainly understand that. Then we got another drummer in her place but he lasted only about 5 months and had to leave because of health issues so while we are still looking for a permanent drummer to fill the void, we are also hoping to be able to release a few new songs to you by the fall if we can. Thanks so much again for your love, support, and sticking with us through some minor challenges. We will definitely keep you posted when we have a new song for you to listen to.

In the meantime, we need you (our fans) to help us write a new song. It is called "In The Blink of an Eye". You see I (Cheryl Ann) lost my brother on December 26th of 2015 and it was very hard on me and my family and still is. It is has left a huge void in my heart so I started writing this song because we were so very close and he was gone in a blink of an eye. I didn't really get to tell him how much I loved him one last time or if I could have one last day with him, what would we do.

So I started writing this song but I would like your (our fans) to help me finish it. Won't that be cool!!!! So I would like you to send me just a short paragraph or a really short story or testimony of what " A Blink of an Eye" means to you. We will read and consider each story. Then when we get this song finished, we would like to incorporate some of the short stories or testimonies of what "In The Blink of an Eye" means to you an share them with our other fans at our live concerts. I think that this will have a big impact on people and who knows, might even bring someone to CHRIST. Now wouldn't that be awesome!!!! We won't use your name unless you want us too, but if we use your story or some of your story in our song, we will give you a shout out for sharing with us and also a free CD once we get it out there. So what do you say, can you help us??? I would love to hear your story or testimony of what "In The Blink of an Eye" means to you. Remember try to keep it short and sweet. Thanks again so much for your help and I look forward to hearing from you soon.

How about if we take stories and testimonies until June 30th and then we will start to finish the song. Let me know if you have any questions about this. Be glad to answer them.

Many blessings to each and every one of you!!!! Mike, Cheryl Ann, Bob and John of Cross Vision.
