Appointed is also a media personality. She is the host of At Home With Appointed (AHWA), a weekly TV & Radio Show. AHWA features random talk, moving music, various videos and some pretty cool special guest from time to time. She uses AHWA as a vehicle to share the gospel message through throughout the show. For Appointed, the bottom line is ministry.
Talking about being APPOINTED, yes she is but not just to getting awards and nominations. She is also APPOINTED to proclaim glad tidings to the meek and to the broken through her music and the preached Word of GOD. Appointed serves as a Pastor who is also a wife, mom, community volunteer. She firmly believes that building and maintaining a strong family bond is one of her all time greatest accomplishments.
Despite not having much of a music background, way back in the day, prior to releasing her first single, “You Know”, Appointed was writing songs on scraps of paper, in her heart, in the car, on the streets, well, just about wherever! Appointed would even bang out chords on a little Casio piano in a shack house in the “hood" not knowing or caring where her efforts would lead. She just knew that the music in heart needed to come out.
Along the way, Appointed battled various levels and types of adversity that included drug addiction, child abuse, depression homelessness, domestic violence and child molestation. During those hard times, Appointed did not know that all of the things she endured would ultimately lead to GOD being glorified through her life as she is a living, walking, breathing testimony to what GOD can do with what is meant to harm.
Appointed believes that only what is done for Christ will last. She indeed loves the Lord! Her love of GOD and His people is evidenced by her willingness to give rather than receive to as many as she can, as often as she can. “Although it's been rough, it's been fair because I know that GOD is for me and has my best interest at heart” states Appointed.
Her long awaited debut project, “Your Love” has been described by (expired link) as “electric”. Appointed is on a mission to make massive moves as the Lord leads.
