Birmingham’s Jessica Webster never expected her music to be recorded and shared, but her talent and passion as a singer couldn’t be contained when God called her to share her story. Her first performances were in school and church where she thought her limits were reached. Mercy Me and Jamie Grace then became inspirations to Webster and she began to understand how she could more fully use her talents to God’s glory. After a stressful time in middle school and early high school when many classmates can be quite harsh, God gave her a wake up call.
“I feel like God gave me a gift to share his Word,” Webster explained. “He led me to realize it’s not my music, but that it’s His music.” It wasn’t long before Webster began seeing the true potential of her talents as a contemporary Christian singer/songwriter. At the age of 16 she received the “Youth Artist of the Year” at the 2015 Artist Music Guild Heritage Awards.
This year she was also named “Country Gospel Youth Artist of the Year” at the 2016 Crimson Music Awards, and she has released her first single “Back to the Cross.” The song’s lyrics tell the story of a girl who needed the love of Christ just as much as He needed her. “Back to the Cross” is available on Apple iTunes, Spotify, and YouTube music among others. “It’s exciting to get my music out there to share my testimony,” Webster said. For Jessica this is just the beginning of a journey God has called her on to inspire others with her amazing talents blessed by God.
