Out of "The Gateway to the West" and "Home of the Blues" hails a powerful voice housed in a small frame. Cheneta Jones, the St. Louis native who began singing at the age of two, has proven that faith can trump any hurdle and prayer can open every door. And her recent win—new background singer for Tye Tribbett—is proof.
Her current single, "Be Like You," from her upcoming studio project on Real Talent Media Group. "Be Like You" has earned Jones plenty of positive feedback and progressive radio spins.
Jones began honing her skills early on in church and eventually started singing at school and other events and occasions on a regular basis. At 16, she became acquainted with a production team that would jumpstart her recording career as a solo artist, and a member in various R&B groups, where she would mature and developed her own sound.
In January 2008 she obeyed the call of ministry, God placed upon her life, and removed herself from the R&B group. She then turned back to her roots and proclaimed that she would sing to the Glory of God and minister through Inspirational/Christian music. Since then, doors have continued to open.
Inspired by personal life experiences and encounters with God, Jones exudes confidence. Her name is synonymous with real music and prolific lyrics, and as the winner of KATZ Hallelujah 1600's Praise Alive Talent Search she has opened for gospel giants as Fred Hammond, John P. Kee, Donnie McClurkin, Deitrick Haddon, Lisa McClendon and many more.
As a singer she lures you in with her unique, crisp, powerful voice, and keeps you interested with incredible stage presence, voice control and the element of surprise.
As a writer she reaches the hearts of her listeners with her relatable experiences expressed through her poetic stories. "I want listeners to be able to hear a song and reflect on how it applies to their life," she says. "In addition, for those who are not believers, it is my intention to draw them to Christ through practical means and not religiosity."
This and more will be displayed on her upcoming project where her desire is "to leave people feeling encouraged and motivated to grow in Christ."
"My upcoming project will entail numerous personal experiences, and my growth as a maturing Christian," she says. "I've been through a lot in the last two years and have overcome many obstacles. So this new album is very relatable and expresses my love for Jesus as literally being my everything."
A singer/songwriter who thrives off of opportunities to give her testimony and minister to the world, she's on a mission to spread the truth.
