At the age of 5, Jekalyn Carr began singing for the Lord and 14 years later, she continues to let God use her through music.

Carr is the powerful voice heard on the gospel hits, “Great Is Coming” and “You’re Bigger,” which is currently #2 on the Billboard charts. Yet in the midst of her growing popularity, she remains open to God’s will in her life.

“I want people to know that no matter who you are, where you are from, where you have been or no matter what age you are, God can still use you,” said Carr who describes her music as a mix of two genres.

“I believe that I am a part of is both traditional and the new wave of music that connects with the people of today. God will use His people to use different avenues to reach His people,” she explained.

Carr’s solid spiritual foundation comes from her family, which she describes as “my biggest supporters.” Her father wrote both of her top songs and her parents nurtured the importance of God, family and balance in life to Carr and her siblings.

As a result, Carr is further developing her interest in fashion in addition to her music career. She designs her own outfits and is pursing a clothing line. Also, Carr mentors Nariah Smith, a nine-year-old upcoming artist.
