The Rising Star of Jekalyn Carr

Thursday, May 5th, 2016

Jekalyn Carr FullWe came to know of the exuberance of fifteen year old Jekalyn Carr when she ignited a fire with the release of her 2013 single, Greater is Coming.  The dynamic singer and evangelist would chart in the top 5 on Billboard and take home a Stellar Award win all by the age of 15.  Some three years later, Carr returned to the recording booth this time for a live recording, Jekalyn’s very first, entitled The Life Project.  GOSPELflava caught up with Jekalyn to talk about her new project, her mentors and what keeps her going.

GOSPELflava: Ok, set the stage for us, its 3 years since the release of Greater is Coming, what’s Jekalyn Carr been up to?

Jekalyn Carr: Well, I did my first national live recording October 22, 2015 and the result of that is my new album The Life Project.  My first single from the CD,  You’re Bigger is at radio and I am touring with singing and preaching dates, so its nothing short of amazing and all for God’s glory.
