Worship music is not a career choice, it's a calling, and it's one that Worship Artist Shelly E. Johnson has embraced with joyful surrender. She has a gift for writing songs that can lift a congregation closer to the Throne and a heart for serving God that makes her one of the most anointed young worship leaders of her generation.
Shelly is a worship leader at North Point Community Church, a 36,000 strong, multi-campus church in Metro Atlanta, Georgia. She is married and a mom to a two-year-old little girl. Most well-known for writing the powerful worship anthem "Power of the Cross", which has been recorded by Natalie Grant, Steve Green and is being used in churches worldwide, Shelly has served as worship leader alongside Beth Moore, Tony Nolan, Andy Stanley, and toured North America with renowned Irish Hymn-writers Keith & Kristyn Getty.
Truly the voice of an angel, Musician Shelly E. Johnson released stunning new Christmas album, Christmas Is Beautiful, on October 20, 2017 and is currently on her nationwide Christmas Is Beautiful Tour. "When I was 14, my daddy died a week after Christmas. Because of that, our family endured many sad Christmases in the years that followed. It's been an amazing journey watching God restore joy to our family over the years and once again making Christmas beautiful. I know Christmas can be a hard, sad time for so many people, so my hope and prayer for my new album "Christmas Is Beautiful" is that it will be a fresh reminder of the faithfulness of God," explained Shelly. "One of the things I love about this album is the variety - there is something for everyone on this album - worship, pop, jazz, big band, folk and some beautiful, tender moments for the grand piano and strings to have the spotlight and soar. It's an amazing blend of so many musical ingredients that make my heart happy, I hope it makes other people happy, too!"
