GOSPEL ARTISTE LISA GRANT WILL NEVER LOOK BACK
After her 2007 effort Never Look Back, Lisa is back in the studio working hard, putting her inspiration to paper while joining forces with some of the very best in the business. The soon to be titled project is expected to feature her trademark vocals and rich harmonies over semi-contemporary beats resulting in an album that her fans will really enjoy.
The young gospel singer’s appearance on the much touted POP Volume One compilation album – another P&W project – brought her ministry to the forefront of local gospel with radio anthems such as the title track Power of Praise, Stepping Out (featuring Ryan Mark) and the Latin inspired rework of the classic hymn Leaning, all bringing her closer to her growing fan base.
The Rollington Town native has been a servant of Christ for virtually her entire life, and is committed to taking her conviction to the World to effect positive change in the lives of those she comes in contact with. In fact, Lisa has been performing for as long as she can remember…even back to the days when she had to be placed on a chair so that the audience could see her tiny three year – old frame. Even at that tender age, her talent was there for everyone to see, with a commanding yet soothing voice.
It all started for her during a fateful meeting with P&W Music boss, Randy McClean, who encouraged her to get into the ministry after witnessing a stirring performance at a watchnight service.
“I would like to see lives being changed through my ministry in music. I have seen where secular music has affected people’s lives in a negative way and I would love to see my music changing people’s lives for the better. I want to see persons smiling again, being encouraged and families coming together, despite the rough and sometimes chaotic situations that we face day by day,” she professes.
Lisa’s Ministry has taken her through the length and breadth of Jamaica and has allowed to minister in the Bahamas much to the delight of her audience.
The soft spoken songstress list the likes of Donnie McClurkin, Crystal Lewis and Chevelle Franklin as her main sources of mucisal inspiration, along with McClean and her ever present parents as her main motivators.
She has so much to say and all the requisite skills to make you take notice and listen.
