They That Wait
Erika was born and raised in Clermont, Florida; she started singing at an early age and it soon became her passion for inner healing and to touch those that she ministered to in a way that words could not just do alone without music; she often finds herself singing from life experiences which makes her ministry more meaningful to her and to her listeners. Erika is the mother of five beautiful children (4 princess'/1 prince)who inspired her to believe that she could do anything, but fail, they are truly a blessing from the Lord. Ordained as a minister in the gospel in August 2003, under the leadership of Apostle Anthony and Beverly Jones, Orlando, Florida whom she followed for 12 years. Erika is now a member of the Churches of God by Faith, Inc. through the leading of the Holy Spirit, where she was faithful and diligent in serving on many auxillaries from a child to March 1995. Erika is found going to and fro assisting churches in their praise and worship services and wherever God can use her to be a blessing to the people, she often has a hard time saying 'No' and it is simply because she loves what she does. Erika is the survivor of the enemy's plot to take her life, in August 2004 she suffered six flatlines, but as CeCe Winans song declares 'Mercy Said No', it wasn't her time, but she took advantage of what the devil tried to do and she sings even harder today serving notice on the enemy that 'she wins!!!'
