For Antonia, music is about service -- to God and to those whose lives might be changed by the power of a song. Every note is given freely, with nothing asked in return other than a willingness to open one's heart and listen. It is the most generous of gifts, and the easiest to receive ... because singing came to Antonia only after her own heart had opened to God. It's value lies not in the promise of fame, but in it's power to touch others as it has touched her. Antonia has a unique multicultural background. She was born in Manchester, England, her parents are from Jamaica and she was raised in Canada. She now resides in the United States with her husband, David and family. She enrolled into Oral Roberts in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and this is where her ministry began and where she discovered the gift God had given to her. As Antonia grew in the knowledge of God, so did her talent as singer, songwriter and worship leader. Her music reflects her multicultural background through the diversity of styles, mixed with lyrics that capture God word for today's generation.
