Trendsetting and award-­‐winning Gospel artist Terri Cann has been described as soulful and authentic. Her new EP “Higher” is full of life’s realities and shares and inspirational word. Her latest album shares a transparent yet triumphant journey from beginning to end of the new record, each song addressing the tools needed to maintain a deep relationship with God. Terri Cann embarked on her singing career at the age of eleven, and has since used her gift in acting, song, dance, and performing throughout the eastern, northern and southern parts of the United States. Her tracks uplift and encourage believers and unbelievers alike with faith-­‐filled words and inspirational melodies. Terri pours her very soul into her music, helping others feel the emotions, disappointments, and trials everyone experiences in life. Despite the loss of her father and enduring the pain associated with losing someone who helped mold and encourage her, Terri ‘s songs motivate people to endure and persevere. Her own personal struggles have strengthened her, helping her to write songs that send messages of love, hope and overcoming through Christ. Terri’s hard work and personal sacrifice has resulted in award nominations for Best Female Urban Singer for the Kingdom Choice Awards, and Urban Inspirational Awards. With a positive perspective and grateful heart, Terri has been able to share the victorious message of Christ with fans at conferences, church events, music venues, and international venues including Africa. She has truly grabbed ahold of 1 Peter 2:9, believing that she is a part of “a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, and a peculiar people; showing forth the praises of GOD, who has called her out of darkness and into His marvelous light.” Terri’s lyrics, performances, and praise all glorify GOD with a hope to direct people directly to a relationship with Him.
