Spiritual Spotlights welcomes Shawny Wright.
Ms. Wright is a very talented Kingdom builder from South Carolina who is bringing her youthfulness together with her faith to encourage her peers and lead by example. This is very evident in her music ministry.
GCLE: Tell us about yourself.
My name is Shawndrea Wright. My stage name is Shawny because that's just what everyone calls me. I have a big family of six: me, my parents, and my siblings: Mykia, Demetrea, and Tim and we also have one little one in the family, my niece Kaleighia Myrers. We all are members of Body Builders Ministries where my mom and dad are pastors, Mia and Tim Gentry. I love to sing- it's always been a big dream of mine to sing professionally. I just love traveling and delivering God's word in my own special way. In my spare time I usually hang out with friends, or most importantly, write new songs. I listen to different types of music to see what I can do with my music to influence people when I bring my flavor and style.
GCLE: Tell me about your music ministry.
My music ministry is really important to me. I just really want to make a change- showing the youth that they can express their talent for Jesus in their own way. You don't have to be like everyone else. My latest song is called "Hypnotize". It will be released in May 2010 so be on the look out for that.
GCLE: For anyone who has not heard you perform, how would you describe your music?
How I would explain my music style umm…wow, I would most definitely say it's really contemporary R&B and hip hop based but all of my music brings a good message for a lot of people whether the song is about life situations or just having fun.
GCLE: What do you love the most about what you do?
What I love the most about what I do is the traveling. I love meeting new people and seeing new places. I love having my street team with me, "Beezy" and "Big Moma Brit", everyone who usually gets down with us gets a nickname we all enjoy each other. The most important thing I love about this ministry is seeing that the people want to change the way they live and get their lives together, it's a beautiful thing.
GCLE: It is said that you have an amazing testimony. Please share this. How did it bring you to this point in life?
When I was born I was diagnosed with Kawasaki disease. I know some of you are like what is that! It's a very rare disease today and it was extremely rare then. Kawasaki disease is a rare condition that involves inflammation of the blood vessels. It was very crazy for me to have it because they say mostly Asian newborns are affected with the disease. Since the disease was really rare then, the doctors didn't know what to do and they was pretty sure I was going to die. But one day a lady had come to the hospital and prayed over my body. My mother didn't even know who she was. My mom told me after she prayed she left and that was it. A couple of days later I was healed and released out of the hospital. I just feel like there was a reason why I was suppose to stay in this world and now I'm walking my destiny.
GCLE: Finally let everyone know of your up and coming projects.
My up and coming singles "Hypnotize" and "Fly" will be released this May. I will also be in concert with Jonathan Nelson May 1, 2010 at Nation Ford High School in Fort Mill, SC. To find out any new releases or events you can follow me on Facebook, Myspace, I Like and 627music.com. I hope you guys enjoy what you hear and are inspired by what you see at these sites and I hope that it's a blessing to you. Thanks and God bless!
God bless you too, Shawny! If the youth of the world are seeking TRUTH with a HIP BEAT, then Shawny's sound is what they seek! Spiritual Spotlights are proud to add a holy and righteous young person to its roster. She is doing the right things in the right way.
