Since Yazz’s salvation in Christ Jesus, her passion for music, people, and His word has deepened through the growing knowledge of His redemptive work on the Cross and His glorified resurrection.
“As a recording artist, I have always seen myself an artist in development. You are always shaping, refining, exploring new arenas along your music story. I was found by Christ firstly, as a sinner in search of God’s existence and once redeemed an explosion happened to me as an artist. My whole world view was illuminated. Christianity revealed the truth about everything in life, death and beyond. My heart woke to a new perspective of being alive and the higher purposes of being here on the planet and after it. All my passion for people and music messages were infused, ignited by a fire that thundered in my being. It was quite spectacular. And, as a singer-songwriter, I could not separate the creative in me from the creator, I was compelled to fuse the two.”
Yazz’s faith journey led her to record her first Contemporary Christian albums voicing her discovery through life-stories.
“Something natural began to evolve after I released my first Gospel Album. Invitations to perform and talk about my experience as an artist with faith happened. It was very natural, felt uncontrived and quite beautiful.”
fromfame2freedom concert events were born.
In creating a backdrop of an intimate style atmosphere through an interviewer with the artist, these evenings are always different, sensitive and responsive. Her personality and music styles reach out to many social and cultural communities of all ethnicities, age groups, and venues including Prisons, Schools, Churches, Missions, Cultural Talks and Women’s Events.
“Everyone has a story; mine comes through real-life songs with a victorious ending...”
Her journey reveals the raw honesty of growing up in a mixed cultural, low-income family getting to grips with tough living, to entering the fast-paced music industry. Arriving to experience fame and acclaim and discovering a vacuum that no amount of money, work or relationships could fill Yazz began the journey for truth. Through many spiritual paths, Yazz finally culminated her search for the real purpose behind it all found in her recognition of Christ as Saviour to the World and her need for repentance.
“It was unsurpassed what I discovered in the person of Jesus Christ. I was found a fragile, wounded human being asking the questions; Who are you? Why did you come? Could you heal me? Why did you give? Does it make any difference to me? Hand to heart, I tell you, voicing the story that happened to me is an honor and a privilege.”
At her heart is the desire to see people’s lives engaging in knowing Jesus Christ as truth in their daily life, learning about God and entering into a growing relationship inside all the everyday issues of life and live in the passionate love of God at each step.
“… it is humbling to listen to many after event stories, to see people’s lives deeply touched and see the Gospel message meet people right where they are. My life story, becoming a singer, making it to international acclaim, and appearing to have everything this world system says is important would, in reality, birth an ever-deepening void leading to a yearning for an inner peace and an authentic sense of satisfaction. Both those eluded me and no amount of quick fixes lasted. I think it’s a very present story for many. The outworking of living in faith in Christ is more than anyone can imagine. You know.., everyone has a story, and crossing into other people’s pages of their book is always something special. Good things happen, choices get made… new chapters can begin.”
