What Happened to Le’Andria Johnson’s Anointed Gospel Voice?

We are not very surprised but gospel phenomenon Le’Andria Johnson, who wowed everyone on Season 3 of BET’s Sunday Best, is not sounding very much like gospel. We were afraid this would happen when we first heard of her after the competition. She has such an anointing voice for God and it was unlike what many artists sound like today.

Unfortunately, Le’Andria’s voice is still the same but the secular sound and lyrics of the songs being produced for her are not the gospel anointing we all grew to love and know her by. There are many of her label mates at Matthew Knowles’ Music World Gospel record company who are dropping off like flies now like Micah Stampley and just recently Trin-i-tee 5:7. So, it may only be a matter of time for her but we wish she was singing some real gospel and not these secular ‘feel good’ grooves that are nonetheless encouraging but not fit to sing in a church.

Take a listen to the new single, “My Story Continues” below here.

    This does not surprise me especially when she put out “Make Him Like You.” I think it is a problem with the songwriting team on her albums. Many of those songwriters write for secular artists as well so the songs will have that secular influence on the lyrics to the song. It is a upbeat Neo-Soul sound and not a gospel sound. Many of the former contestants on Sunday’s Best do not want to sound “churchy” because they were counseled not to do so by the judges and vocal coaches. There was a recent clip of her channeling Tupac in a live show. I was hoping that her deliverance that was captured on YouTube would make her re-think the direction her life and music is going but she is trying to market to the secular crowd. This is what the show does to people before and after their appearances, take the sacred anointing that these contestants have and turn them into clones of Mary Mary, Donnie, Yolanda, etc. I feel the best way to be in the industry is to be independent and keep your music pure. Better yet, keep your talents in a healthy church where the preaching and teaching is Bible-based.
