Tina Walters-Brown has been nurturing a musical talent ever since she impressed her school friend with her first impromptu performance. The reggae artist seeking higher, gave her life and earthly honest voice to God on the 23rd of December 2007.
Her songs emote an evangelical passion and tells the tale of God's presence in her everyday life. Even when Tina examines topics such as the battles we all face, her charm and sincerity of her smile lets you know that with God all is well. She uses her talent to break down satan's strongholds by ministering the word of God through a style of gospel music that appeals mostly to the youths.
Young Phenom @PhevsPhe
Young Phenom, born Mark Anderson Samuel II is one of these unique personalities we speak of. Born and raised in the small island of Antigua, this young man has grown to find himself seated very comfortably in a culture that is not his own; the hip hop culture.
Starting off rapping at around the age of sixteen (16) with a love for the art form and a raw talent, he has developed into the well rounded artist we now know or will get to know.
As aforementioned, he’s not just an artist but also a Christian, unashamed of who he is and this is evident as he boldly declares his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, both on and off beats.
He is no stranger to the stage where he lets it all out with his band 'Christ Family'; the band he loves, leads and has major appreciation for. When he’s not in that arena, he can be found recording with fellow artists from the up and coming label 'Backyard Records'.
With a transformed heart, a love for people and music, he hopes to continue in being some of the selective few making a positive impact on the music industry and the lives that his music and himself come into contact with. There's so much light and creativity in this soul that we cannot wait to see the impact he makes on the entire world, he is truly a phenom.
Some have said that Ronnie Davis is a new and upcoming gospel artiste; however, the word “new” is not totally accurate, as he has been honing his musical talent from a very young age at the New Winthorpes SDA Church. For many years he has been singing solos at various events, he became a member of several choirs, and was instrumental in the starting of two prolific musical groups/bands. In the latter years, Ronnie also served as worship leader, leading his church into dynamic praise and worship.
Ronnie, also a song writer at heart, released his first single in the year 2000, and now after several years of musical experience, has returned to penning and singing his own songs, seeking to communicate his personal life journey with Christ as His savior and friend. At his two recent concerts “You” in 2014 and “You 2nd Edition” in 2015, many people were blessed and encouraged by the powerful lyrics and melodies. Ronnie is currently seeking to produce his first album to be released in 2016, which he hopes will be a conduit for God’s message of love and care to everyone.
Ronnie’s desire is to first please God above all things, and secondly to dedicate his gift of singing to God’s purpose only. He uses a variety of musical genres as the vehicle of his lyrical messages, but in all of the songs he has written, the recurring theme of God’s amazing love and His saving grace is evident as it is personal.
