“AAP.” Began as a play based on the 84th Psalm. I was reading Dr. Ray Stedman’s excellent book ‘Folk Psalms of Faith’ and began to write about two people trying to put into practice the faith they had claimed in principle. These two restless, wavering, beginning Christians seek an answer to the puzzle of their discontent and find it in the Word of God. My srory line collected the wispy beginnings of tunes. Mrs. Betsy Anderson added the miracle of her talent and we had a musical. Barbara and Milton Cunningham invited us to premiere our new show at Westbury Baptist Church in June 19, 1975. “AAP.” Was chosen for ‘appendix,’ that section of a book in which everything is put together. “AAP.” Has performed for churches, theatres, seminars, community arts centers and was to inaugurate the A.D. Players’ theatre in the Grace Building. Now we send it out in this out first A.D. Players album. It is my prayer that “AAP.” Will continue to offer entertainment with a message leading others to the loving God who put it all together. To God Be the Glory – Jeannette Clift George.

Liner Notes
Forever Faithful chosen as the name for this album, represents more than a title. It is a benediction upon the sincere performances and pleasant personality of the artist, Miss Doris Akers.
At the age of five, Doris started playing the piano; before her tenth birthday she had written her first song and was directing a five-piece orchestra.
In her early teens she dedicated her life and talents to the ministry of gospel music and in many religious circles she is affectionately known today as "Miss Gospel Music."
Doris has won the admiration and respect of many recording artists because of her gospel song-writing activities. Besides composing songs, she has been successfully directing choirs all over America; at present, she directs and leads the "Sky Pilot Choir" at the Sky Pilot Radio Church in Los Angeles.
Whether directing a choir, singing a song, making phonograph recordings or composing, Doris has always been a blessing to those with whom she works.
After listening to this album of heartwarming songs, you will better understand why it was rightfully named "Forever Faithful." Tim Spencer
