Soni Muller: Mormon Singer
Muller loved to sing as a child, but did not grow up in a musical family. Her parents took her to see “The Phantom of the Opera” in Los Angeles, and from that moment she fell in love with Broadway music. With her mother’s encouragement, she tried out for a junior high choir and was selected.
While a student at Southern Utah University, she sang with the show Choir Acclamation.
Muller met Whitney Permann and Brooke Stone while singing with the Jenny Phillips Choir. Phillips handpicked them when she wanted to write music for a trio. They formed Mercy River in 2009 and have toured all over the United States and Canada singing about the Savior, Jesus Christ.
Mercy River released its first album in May 2008, entitled “Mercy River.” A second album named “Beautiful Dawn” followed in 2010 with “Higher” premiering in 2012. “Come Alive” was released in 2014.
Muller and her husband, Treion (who is from South Africa), have five children. They co-wrote a book entitled Mom Rules: Because Even Superheroes Need Help Sometimes.
