Lady Elizabeth Townsend
With her original new single 'My King Jesus' rapidly climbing the charts, Lady Elizabeth Townsend and her unique brand of well-honed contemporary Christian is rapidly becoming a musical success story thanks in large part to her impeccable melodic instincts.
Like contemporary Christian? Many do, perhaps in yearning for a return to great musicianship and melody. Here is an artist that ably serves the sentiment. Native of Washington state and born in the small town of Ellensburg, Washington, Lady Elizabeth Townsend has quickly risen on the strength of her new award-winning single 'My King Jesus'. Elizabeth began singing at an early age in her hometown where she grew up in Yakima, Washington in her church with her sisters called the Voices of Holiness, under the director of their song leader Apostle Karon L. Williams. Elizabeth's mother, Mary Francis Marshall Williams, played the piano at the church and fostered Elizabeth's love for singing and poetry. At an early age Elizabeth was diagnosed with Acute Thyroid Disease, which caused her to lose her voice. So she quit singing and found a career in healthcare for the elderly while she continued to write poetry in her spare time, though she wouldn't leave music for long. After graduating from the University of Phoenix, the Lord blessed her once more with the use of her voice after winning her battle with Thyroid Disease. While her newly rediscovered voice was left hoarse and strained, she never stopped singing the praises of her Lord and began releasing music on her own in 2012. Fast forward to 2016, after years of hard work, dedication, and praise to the Father on high, Elizabeth has miraculously topped the gospel radio charts, garnering over 2,900 spins in just the month of February alone! This achievement has been recognized by the Akademia in Las Angeles, California, and nominated Elizabeth's single for 2015 Best Christian / Americana Song.
Recently, the critics had this to say about her work: 'Lady Elizabeth Townsend delivers a powerful and infectious song that shows off her personality and love for Jesus - sure to be a fan favorite among those who share her passion.' With her new single steadily climbing the charts, Lady Elizabeth Townsend seems destined for the global limelight. Reporter Lauren Thompson recently caught up with the talented artist to learn more about what inspires her to create her unique brand of Christian music and what we can expect from Lady Elizabeth Townsend in the near future.
