Your Willyour Way
Cherise started her Christian music ministry in 1997 with the creation of the musical group Marvelous Grace in Springdale, AR. As lead singer, songwriter, and keyboard player, she performed for thousands of people throughout Arkansas, Missouri, Oklahoma, Kansas, and Texas. Cherise is a small town girl from Nashville, Arkansas. Music has always just come naturally to her. She is self taught on piano, songwriting (ASCAP), and singing. "When you sing in church and people feel the spirit, it is the best feeling in the world. God moves me and hopefully uses me to extend His message of love and hope. What an honor and a gift!" Unlike a lot of performers, Cherise was not born into the ministry. There is no history of performers, songwriters, or singers on a professional scale in her family. This is truly a one on one relationship coming from one source. This is the story of a true underdog working extremely hard at everything she does and enjoying the ride along the way. "I firmly believe that to those God gives a lot, He expects a lot." Entwined in her songs are stories from the Bible and from her heart. Cherise blends her life experiences with spiritual ones to create a project that is truly unique and honest. Explore her story in her very first nationally released project, "Your Will, Your Way," and enjoy the ride! "The Spirit evokes emotions that create the songs."
