As God would have it, she got fired a week before the BET Sunday Best auditions, clearing her path to audition for the show. But first she had to overcome her fears.
Simply put, Reedy’s voice had changed and now her pitch was much lower. She had to call on the Lord, right there, to help her use and master this new voice she wasn’t familiar with, and the rest, as they say, is history.
Before long she started noticing a pattern, for every step forward, a new fear or challenge surfaced. And each time she called on the Lord in prayer and supplication asking for help and guidance, and the Lord answered.
“Better” which is poised to become number one on the radio is a testament to her journey, and a message to all of us about the power of prayer and belief, and how God really works with you to bring your gifts, whatever they are, to the forefront of your lives. With them you can impact the world.
Gospel recording artist Jessica Reedy will be performing live at the Kirk Franklin Gospel Brunch at the House of Blues on Sunday, April 20 at 1 p.m.
