We were blessed by the stories, the music and the heart of Tanya Godsey. My only disappointement was that we didn’t have her come sooner! Our church was very blessed by Tanya’s ministry and we hope it works out for her to come again.
Tanya’s visit to our church was such a gift. Not only is she a talented songwriter and musician but she is also a wonderful storyteller and we enjoyed her stories and words of encouragement as much as her music. We have a large creative community at our church and I loved the way Tanya brought the audience into the artistic process behind the songs. Our musicians and artists were especially blessed by that behind the scenes view of her music. It was an amazing night and I continue to hear stories about how Tanya’s music is touching people in our church body. We would have her back in a heartbeat!
Tanya is a storyteller with a voice that moves your soul as well as your mind. Her music embodies an honest expression of life and faith, while her voice captivates your ear with a rich melody and sound.
Tanya writes and sings with a wisdom beyond her years; she digs deeply and shares through her beautiful songs the treasures mined from places where we all live and struggle. She is that rare kind of artists who possesses both extraordinary talent and a genuine unassuming nature. I consider her a true friend and a kindred spirit and can’t wait for you to hear her music!
Tanya is a shepherd that speaks to the soul. Passionately biblical and contemplative, it is impossible to sit and listen to her without being drawn to the truth and heart of who God is. She is the rare hybrid of artist and minister who can go far beyond simply entertaining and leave an audience with a lasting spiritual deposit.
Leading the people of God in the genuine and powerful worship of who He is, is one of the greatest gifts that God gives in the body of Christ. A person who has this gift has been given a beautiful thing! When God also gives this person the ability to write God-honoring songs that minister deeply to people on a spiritual and emotional level and see the big picture of the kingdom, you truly have a person whose maturity can influence many! Tanya Godsey is this person! As her Pastor I have seen up close all that I have described above and I am encouraged that others will be exposed to her ministry!
Tanya Godsey is the real deal...the complete package. Lyrics that are both aching and uplifting, chords and rhythms from a huge color palette. And the voice! So warm and true, you just wonder where she’s been all these years.
