Jessica Reedy

Every so often an artist emerges that captures our attention, makes us sit up and take note of what pure talent and anointing looks and sounds like. Jessica Reedy is truly one of those artists … one listen and you will never forget the voice. Jessica Reedy first came to our attention on the national TV competition BET’s Sunday Best. She attended the Season 2 Sunday Best audition in Washington DC on a whim to support a friend. She quickly found herself in the Top 20 onto the show’s main stage performing for judges Mary Mary and Bebe Winans. Reedy made it all the way to finals eventually being named runner up. Throughout that process and the subsequent loss, self-doubt crept in. While Reedy never thought she had the talent to make it, God used the totality of the experience to bring her into her call as both an artist and minister of music. “My insecurities, my fears, my guilt and pain were all brought before me – the things I thought I had let go. I learned so much about myself during and after Sunday Best. I learned how little my faith was in God and His abilities … in spite of my shortcomings God still proved HIMSELF to me,” said Reedy. “I started discovering how much HE Loved me, cared for me, and how HE thought of me as HIS beloved. I learned how much I didn’t know about myself.” “The Sunday Best experience changed me tremendously,” she continued. “Being on the Show allowed me to see God like never before … He used the Show to teach me what it really meant when He said ‘I’ll never leave you nor forsake you.’ It marked the beginning of my in depth search to know Christ and why He loves me so much.” Since the 2009 finale, Reedy has seen God bring her into His promise. She was able to extricate herself from contractual agreements that would allow her to sign a record deal with Light Records and is now poised to release her debut CD in August 2011. It was the time after the finale that has become most transformative for Reedy. Said Reedy, “I used my time and efforts spent between the Sunday Best Finale and my record deal with Light Records toward my search for answers. I sought God for my true purpose, the vision He had for me to fulfill … ‘why I was selected, what He wanted me to say and do. It was a time full of questions, waiting and of course HIS answers. He brought new people into my life … helped me form a great team … there was a lot of praying, crying, singing, and most importantly learning and listening.” The end result – a clear direction for her music ministry and artistry. “As a minister of music, HE used that experience to show me how necessary it is to know HIS word … that it is the Word of God that would draw, heal, deliver, protect and save HIS people,” said Reedy. “He’s teaching me about the importance of faith and simply believing and trusting everything HE says.” There is an impressive quality to Reedy’s artistry that belies her young age. Anchoring it all together is her one-of-a-kind voice and incomparable range. And the minute you hear that low register you know you’re witnessing something pretty special. The command of her gift is amazing as heard on her first radio single, “God Has Smiled On Me.” The unique and absolute beauty of the vocal arrangements makes the track to stand out from anything on Gospel radio today. The yet untitled debut will feature Reedy’s talents paired with a bevy of producers. Including some of today’s hottest like Shep Crawford (Whitney Houston, Yolanda Adams, Tamia) who produced the single; Warryn Campbell (Mary Mary, Brandy, Kelly Price) will contribute a few songs as well as Jim Wright & Daniel Moore, Aaron Sledge, Mali Music and Claude Kelly. Jessica Reedy is clearly an original, with a vocal style and personal charisma that is all about love, honesty, praising God and embracing her purpose. “I would have to describe my music as ‘heart songs’ said Reedy. “It’s music from my heart about the One I love the MOST. I don’t really know the style or category it fits in … it’s just me.”
