Fuel your body and move your soul! With classic gospel playlists and live gospel performances featuring Kerri LaShawn. Be prepared to feast on inspirational music that will surely move your body and fuel your soul.
Born in The Bronx, NY, Kerri LaShawn was born to be on stage. Having shown a great degree of charisma from an early age when she led her first song with The Rosebuds Children’s Choir, to going on to sing and travel with the Voorhees College Concert Choir she had always been at home with a microphone in her hand.
Since relocating to Charlotte in 2008, Kerri has become a force in the city performing with a number of party bands including The Company Band, Right To Party, Straight Fire and Sol Fusion, with whom she performed for the Carolina Panthers’ 2016 Fan Fest. She was also featured on the television show “The World’s Greatest Tribute Bands” with the band, Natural Wonder.
With all the performing she has done across the country, nothing compares to singing gospel. Whether it’s leading worship at her church True Life Fellowship Church, singing background on recordings for Elevation Worship or in her quiet time alone, she is a worshiper at heart and she’s honored to be sharing her gifts with Middle C.
