Gospel is flourishing with new talent and
Keesha Rainey, an up and coming artist from Nashville, TN, is using every opportunity available to show America what she’s got! She started singing at the age of 6 and has blossomed into a prominent songwriter and vocalist with national recognition.
Charismatic with an infectious spirit of laughter and joy, Keesha’s warm personality embraces you long before she opens her mouth to sing a note. She shares, “I laugh a lot – and I laugh loud! I love people and I haven’t met a stranger yet. I love to have fun.” An avid sports fan, she is a former softball player and keeps a very busy schedule.
At every opportunity she enjoys listening to great music and is inspired by Mali Music, Mary Mary, Rachelle Ferrell, Jill Scott and others. Keesha enjoys many styles and has a genuine appreciation for various forms of music. As an artist, she would love to collaborate with Deitrick Haddon in the future.
When she started her adult musical journey, she worked on practicing and perfecting her own gift and God opened the door and allowed her to connect with Donnie & Darryl Frierson, lead singers of the Gospel quartet group, the Joy Boyz. They took Keesha under their wing and freely shared with her knowledge about the business and allowed her to travel and share the stage with them. For that, Keesha is deeply grateful and realizes that their great investment and belief in her truly paved the way for her to step onto bigger stages.
One of the biggest stages she has stepped onto was in 2011 when she made her worldwide television debut on Bobby Jones Gospel. Described as one of the most exciting things that ever happened to her, Keesha says that she is forever grateful for Dr. Jones. Their connection actually happened when Keesha was ministering at the IMAC Conference in Hendersonville, TN in 2010. Dr. Jones happened to be sitting on the front row when she performed and after she sang, he exclaimed to her “You’re a star!” From that, she was invited to come and be part of his show and the rest is history.
Keesha is currently working on her second CD and just recently won the Blockbuster Showdown “Upcoming Artist Award” and was also nominated for the Gospel Music City Awards. She’s set records on internet radio as a new artist holding the number one spot and there is simply no stopping her now.
She is passionate not only about her music – but about ministry, as she shares, “I just want my relationship with God to grow stronger. As a songwriter, I want to perfect my craft and simply allow God to have his way.”
