Le’Andria Johnson, the powerhouse singer who is the season three winner of BET’s Sunday Best, won fans around the globe as she competed in the world’s leading gospel competition television show. While this single mother's heart-wrenching story of loss and struggle tugged at the heartstrings of the viewing audience, it was her voice that captured the spirit and imagination of everyone, especially the Sunday Best season three host and judges: Kirk Franklin, Kim Burrell, Donnie McClurkin, Yolanda Adams, and Tina Campbell of Mary Mary. Le’Andria Johnson prevailed over thousands of hopefuls who auditioned for the show and was crowned Sunday Best after receiving the majority of the more than 2 million votes cast in the televised contest.

Le’Andria Johnson’s star-turn on Sunday Best was not an “overnight success” story. For the 29- year-old, twice divorced mother of three, it has been a long and often arduous journey to the spotlight in the gospel music industry. An accomplished singer and songwriter and an anointed praise and worship leader, Le’Andria Johnson was born in Orlando, Florida and began singing and performing for her family at tw0 years old. When she was four, the family moved to the small town of Palatka, Florida, where her father Dr. G.A. Johnson, Sr., served as presiding Bishop of the Head Quarters (HQ) Ministries. Le’Andria Johnson began singing at her father’s church at the age of six and became praise and worship leader when she was 16.

Signed to Music World Gospel in a joint venture with BET with the Sunday Best brand, Le’Andria Johnson’s debut CD, The Awakening of Le’Andria Johnson is produced by GRAMMY® Award winner Chuck Harmony (Rihanna, Fantasia, Chrisette Michele). The songs on the CD showcase Le’Andria Johnson’s unique combination of power, skill and reverence, which made her a favorite of Sunday Best fans. Her new single, “Jesus,” co-written by Le’Andria, is an urban contemporary song, with traditional gospel roots.

The Awakening of Le’Andria Johnson also includes two tracks with medleys of songs performed by Le’Andria on Sunday Best. The first medley combines her roof-raising rendition of Quincy Jones and Andraé Crouch’s “God Is Trying to Tell You Something,” from the Broadway musical, The Color Purple, and her fresh take on Fred Hammond’s (Commissioned) hit song, “Running Back to You.” In the second medley, Le’Andria Johnson puts her spin on Myron Butler and Levi’s pop-style hit, “Set Me Free,” and offers a heartfelt rendition of “I Shall Leap into My Destiny,” written by Le’Andria Johnson and Terrance Johnson.

Le’Andria Johnson is excited about all the songs on the CD and can’t wait to minister in song for audiences around the world. She hopes that her songs will make a difference in people’s lives. “We can’t just reach in the circle, we have to do like the Bible says—go out and compel them to come in,” she says. A licensed minister, Le’Andria Johnson believes that singing is her God-given talent, but that ministry is her calling. As the season three winner on Sunday Best, she now has the platform to touch countless lives by doing both.
