In 1996, seems ages ago, Word Music produced a special ballad called On My Knees, written by David Mullen, Nicole Mullen and Michael Ochs. The song is written in the Key of A Major and yes, it has been performed by sweet Jaci Velasquez.
Aileen Nicole Coleman-Mullen (born January 3, 1964) is an award-winning singer, songwriter, and choreographer. She was born and raised in Cincinnati, Ohio. She recorded her first solo album, Don’t Let Me Go, in 1991 with the independent label Frontline Records.
Mullen continued her singing-songwriting-choreography career in the 1990s, singing backup for Michael W. Smith and the Newsboys, writing for Jaci Velasquez, and working as a dancer/choreographer with Amy Grant. She also provided backup vocals for the music video at the end of the VeggieTales program, Larry-Boy and the Fib from Outer Space! and the opening of the VeggieTales presentation, Larry-Boy and the Rumor Weed. She was signed to Word Records in 1998 by VP of A&R Brent Bourgeois. Her fourth album, Talk About It, was certified gold for sales in excess of 500,000 copies on April 15, 2008.

When you purchase Song Robot Software you'll be able to drag midi files that you find for free online and learn to play the song along with the midi, of course having the chords to follow. The cool thing is that you can slow down or speed up the song. The software works on PCs and Macs.
