My ministry is for the lost, the hurting and especially young women. I want my music to bring healing, deliverance, empowerment and self worth to those who have been broken and chained by hurt, disappointment and insecurity. I aspire to write my signature on the earth by infecting the world with God’s love and sharing music that brings life. I am motivated by by Psalms 40:3, which declares, “And he hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God: many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the LORD”.
