Hello, my name is Mariah Janae and I'm an upcoming Gospel artist. I need help creating my webpage and all I need is a bio for myself. It's kinda hard writing about myself because I don't wanna make it seem like I'm the best in the city lol. To tell you a little about myself, I've been in church all my life, born and raised. I was the only child out of 7 that was christened, meaning given back to God. After my pastor passed away when I was about 16-17, I kinda faded away from the church for a little while until my mother found another church right up the street from where we stayed. Now this church embraced me soooooo much. They allowed me to play their drums and to Mime dance/Praise dance & never once did they tell me "no". I was fighting for my freedom around the age of 17-18, I was trying to find myself so they say. I really didn't know who I was or who I wanted to be. With that being said, through it all God kept his arms wrapped around me. I found him once again. Scripture says "Train up a child in the way he should go, And when he is old he will not depart from it." Proverbs 22:6. So because I was brought up in church all my life, I knew who to turn to and how to get help if I had no direction.
All of that lead me to almost getting married at the age of 22. I was so ready, but that wasn't the guy God had for me. It felt rushed and it came down to me not even liking the guy for real. It was so many distractions while dealing with that situation. I never could really focus on ME, MYSELF, AND I. it was always other things. Anywho, I then began to talk to God more and to try to listen out for his voice. And that's when I begin writing music. I've always been a writer but writing music was something I've always wanted to do. And now that I realize, I had to go through something to actually have something to sing/write about. My music speaks through me, it speaks for me. My mother inspired me to write, putting her through so much pain and worry, I wanted to apologize and God allowed me to write my first single MAMA dedicated to her and all the mothers out there who genuinely love their children.
Now as for me, I just want to continue to make music for those who need that light in their life because their tired of being in darkness. I was there once upon a time, but God has delivered me through it all. I wanna be able to inspire young women all around the world who are looking for answers and don't know where to turn to. Turn to the Lord because he has all of the answers you're looking for.
