Sonya chooses to focus on the joy of her life in Jesus Christ in her concerts. Audiences across the country are finding her enthusiasm to be contagious, and love her humorous, straight-ahead approach to an evening of music. Whether it’s leading worship, singing for an event, writing a song, teaching kids to use their gifts for Jesus, or just simply sitting down at the keyboard to praise Him for His goodness, Sonya brings a raw, heart-felt emotion to every song she sings.
“It’s been an interesting journey,” Sonya reflects on her musical path through several decades. “Ministry is great. Making a record was a dream come true. Leading a congregation in worship is humbling and beautiful. Seeing God move and make everything come together is awesome. There is a downside, though.
Musicians…especially CHRISTIANS, have this ugly self-importance disease and can be very competitive. Everything is about being the best and being THE HEAD HONCHO.
The way the music business is set up today, or even music ministries within the church, you are only as good as the number of records you’ve sold or the number of people that tell the pastor ‘we really liked the worship this week.’ NOBODY asks you if you’ve spent time with Jesus today.”
One of Sonya’s greatest joys comes from ministering to people:
“I love to point people to Jesus…the One who can TRULY change our hearts.”
