The name Open Sky originated as a pseudonym for Steve Kim and his compositions, collaboration and productions. Between 2006-2007, Steve Kim had written the songs “Give my Heart” and “Breathe in me” under the name of Open Sky which garnered international success being sung in churches from China, Brazil, Nigeria to the U.K. and United States. Then in 2008 Steve felt the burden to reach out to the back-slidden and lost by penning “The Dream is over” under the name Open which quickly became the #1 requested song of all time on one of internet’s leading alternative rock stations and the legendary trilogy "Lost and Found" based on the parable of the prodigal son. .

After a short hiatus, Steve was deeply moved to record and chronicle what God was doing musically in the local church. As a member of the worship band at Calvary Chapel Antelope Valley, Steve was amazed at the wealth of songs and talent
God had put together in such a short time. Most importantly, everyone had a will to forsake their egos and pulled together to record a collection of fiery passionate “songs from the heart” that aimed to connect a congregation comprised of different age groups, races and lifestyles to the immutable timeless Creator of all. That was no easy task!

The result is "Open Sky." "Open Sky" is the name of this collection of original worship songs written and performed by members of the Calvary Chapel Antelope Valley worship group recorded between 2009-2010.

The vocalists and musicians that appear on the CD are Julian Martinez, Trish Timms, Mario Gonzalez, Mario Gonzalez Jr., Mike Morris, Kellie Switalski, Kelly Patrizio, Duane Clark and Steve Kim.

The current line up includes Julian Martinez, Mario Gonzalez Jr, Justine Gonzalez, Kelly Switalski, Mike Morris, Kelly Patrizio, Dave and Heather Cristalinas, Lonny Snodgrass and Steve Kim.
