Additionally, the site and app’s search engine also works in reverse, allowing worship leaders, ministers, filmmakers, or dance choreographers to find songs when they search by scripture or bible theme. This feature prevents the disconnect that many church attendees experience when they engage in praise music, and then hear a sermon that has no relation to the song. Scripturally Sound solves this problem, providing suitable songs that support sermons, which creates a cohesive church-going experience. More than a lyric site, Scripturally Sound is a community, and bible memory tool that combines education and music worship, which we call “edu-worship.”Aiding Christians in their Godly walk, the platform is a digital solution to an ever increasing technically savvy demographic that includes believers. The church can no longer afford to be left behind, relying on 20th century engagement methods. The song-to-scripture and scripture-to-song resource provides a robust interactive database, thus setting itself apart from competitors that only provide Christian lyrics or bible lessons with traditional education approaches. The result? A content, returning church-goer scripturally sound in their choice of worship music.

I think Scripturally Sound gives churches around the world the opportunity to increase the impact of the message of Love, Faith and Hope weekly by helping to maximizing the message with songs and scriptures supporting each other!

I got to know Kimberly as she went through PreFlight at the Nashville Entrepreneur Center. Throughout the program, we got to see Kimberly come into her own as an entrepreneur, beginning as a participant still evaluating what the program really was, then immersing herself into it with thoughtful questions, assignments, and advisor meetings. I got to see her make thoughtful adjustments to her business model as she applied what she learned from customers, advisors, and her own further thought. In preparation for the final pitch day Kimberly came to the EC during her lunch breaks for extra pitch coaching, and by the final event, was ranked by practically everyone as one of the best, if not the best, pitches of the evening. Kimberly is smart, coachable, and just a really positive person to be around.

Bill Lee McCleskey Director of Sales - Eastern Region, US at Mitech Partners, LLC

Kimberly with Scripturally Sound is a dynamic innovator and thinker in the tech music space. Her drive and contagious energy have created momentum for her company which will serve as a model for related ventures going forward.

More importantly, Kimberly loves people and understands that by adding value as an entrepreneur, her company will thrive and bless others. I can't wait to see what's in store for Scripturally Sound in the near future! Because of Kimberly's traction in business, unique business model and understanding of systems, her addition to the upcoming cohort/accelerator would be an amazing benefit to all participants involved.

Thanks!

I strongly support and endorse Kimberly and Scripturally Sound for acceptance in the accelerator program for which her application is under review. I have had the opportunity to review her concept, refer her to Christian music professionals and mentor with her in the EC PreFlight program and the accelerator will be a valued component of helping build out her concept and her own managerial and business development skills.

Stryker Warren Co-Founder at IXS

Kimberly Lannear has identified an unmet need and is addressing that with Scripturally Sound. As a Nashville Entrepreneur Center "Master Mentor" I both judged Kimberly and her business plan in "pitch competition" and discussed strategy and tactics in one-on-one meetings. Kimberly is a thoughtful founder and CEO; she is articulate, engaging, has done extensive diligence, and she is inspirational.

Scripturally Sound has taken relevant worship music and built lessons around the music to provide educational opportunities for individuals and groups, and it has also dramatically simplified the music director's and minister's creation of a program or service to ensure a complementary tapestry of music, message, enhanced learning and understanding.

Kimberly instills confidence as well as generating inspiration. I expect Scripturally Sound to become a firstline resource for a wide range of users with an increasingly expansive offering as the company's install base grows.

Ben Schecter CTO at AloaLabs

Scripturally Sound has enormous potential in the spiritual music space. Kim, the Founder and CEO, is extremely passionate about the idea and highly motivated to make it work. In my conversations with Kim about Scripturally Sound, Kim has appeared extremely focused with a great plan for her platform to help spread bible related music to a wide range of users.

Alvin Love

As Kimberly Lanner's pastor for nearly two years, I would definitely recommend her for Scripturally Sound. As a person, Kim is kind, and very friendly with a desire to live her life to pleases the Lord. She's also a faithful member of Nashville Life and supports her weekly life group.
After hearing her heart and seeing her created ideas for linking gospel music lyrics to bible passages, I was convinced that nothing was going to stop her from reaching her dreams. Kim is passionate about her desire to take this music she loves to another level. Once you're with Kimberly, it only takes for a few minutes before coming away feeling that she really loves and believes in what she's doing. Having Kimberley with Scripturally Sound would definitely be my recommendation. Thanks you for giving me this opportunity to speak on behalf of Kim.

Kimberly Lannear consulted with me regarding the potential copyright and music licensing issues involved in launching and operating Scripturally Sound. While it will be necessary to obtain licenses from music publishers to use song lyrics, the nature of the Scripturally Sound service will promote the songs. This may encourage the publishers to license their song catalogs at reasonable rates. As a Project Music mentor, I would be willing to assist Scripturally Sound in negotiating these licenses.

Beth Brown

As a recording artist interested and exploring the intertwining of prophetic imagery and songwriting Scripturally Sound had been a wonderful composition tool. The importance of running prophecy and scripture concurrent is of the utmost importance to me as an Artist. Scripturally Sound not only highlighted relevant gospel versus but helped to parallel scriptures providing confirmation in exploration.

Kerry Schrader CEO at Mixtroz, LLC

Kim is an energetic young woman that has found her purpose in Scripturally Sound. She has discovered a way that will make bringing the sweet music of the gospel more relevant to the listener, music worship leader and pastoral staff. As I have been recently introduced to Kim, in a short time I can confidently say that she is focused, willing to learn and ready to put in the work that is necessary to be successful. Based on her tenacity and dedication to Scripturally Sound without the advantage of an accelerator, I believe the sky is the limit for her with sound business guidance and support. Good idea with a great person behind it...take a chance on someone that is already a winner (in life)!

Terri Chap Consultant at Scripturally Sound

Kimberly shows tenacity and creativity in the areas of design, marketing and research/development. Her unique concept, to provide resources for worship leaders and bible study attendees, is a novel one. Through paid subscriptions, Scriptually Sound takes the guess work out of tying the true meaning of a song to a sermon. Bible study students will also find solace in understanding how worship, through music, is relevant to the curriculum and biblical instruction. Scriptually Sound provides a platform for liked minded individuals to explore and forge dialogue about Christian themes and the music they love. As a Start Up Consultant, my initial role has been to help Kimberly thrash out her ideas and provide guidance as she assembles her team. I have been helping entrepreneurs launch their businesses since 1998. Scripturally Sound has a unique way of bridging the gap between the passive congregant and the full worship experience. I highly recommend support of this vision.

Tracy Egbas

Scripturally Sound is literally a necessary tool for anyone involved with or interested in the christian entertainment industry. It is an efficient and reliable resource to get all the information you need when you need it. It is an invaluable tool for me as a christian filmmaker. I would more than recommend it to anyone!

Rebekah Panepinto Account Executive at Pilgrim Consulting, Inc

Kimberly is a passionate entrepreneur with a drive to bring a new platform to the church!

I consulted with Kim and she has a grasp on the technology needed to build a MVP of her application. This approach includes building a WordPress mobile friendly website and then utilizing an web app wrapper to have the platform accessible on mobile and utilize push notification technology.

Scripturally Sound is an encouraging tool to assist musicians in the church!

As a bible study leader, I know the importance of finding appropriate songs that echo the topic of the studies that I lead. Scripturally Sound is a platform that reduces the hassle of trying to find the right song as I prepare lessons. Additionally,I can use the songs themselves-- from current tunes to traditional hymns--and create lessons around them. Song-bible studies like these appeal to multiple generations.

As a marketing director, I can attest that Kimberly has done an incredible job in her marketing research, in order to resolve problems that are clearly evident but continue to prevail. Scripturally Sound is refreshing, revolutionary and essential for many bible study educators who want a more holistic teaching approach in which songs and biblical messages go hand in hand.

Chris McMurtry

I have been able to meet with Kimberly on 3 different occasions. A learner and a 'go-getter' it has been particularly impressive to see her application of our discussions between meetings. She has a keen understanding of the space she is looking to serve with Scripturally Sound. She's built a presentation that aptly describes the opportunity she is addressing and has been able to use it to validate the market she is looking to serve. She also seems to have a good understanding of the hurdles around licensing and CCLI and appears to have the resolve to address them head on with an open mind, listening to the needs of her market. She is very familiar with the problem, is aware of the competition in her space, and has a unique value proposition that sets Scripturally Sound apart.

It is an honor to be able to write this recommendation for Kimberly and Scripturally Sound.
