A man’s gift makes room for him, and brings him before great men. (Proverbs 18:16 NKJV)
GET READY! GET READY! GET READY!
DALLAS — Whomever else wants to count Lashunda Brackens-Denby out, she’s got news for you:
You obviously can’t count, nor do you know the kind of God she serves.
“First, I want to thank God for giving me this gift, for loving me and being patient with me,” Brackens-Denby said. “I am so grateful for His direction. We’re living in a world that need to hear the gospel of Jesus Christ, to believe that His Son sacrificed His life to save their soul, and trust that in this walk of life, God will get us through the trials of life.”
For Brackens-Denby, she recalls like yesterday a rather notable and memorable trial, one that essentially served as a defining moment, of sorts, in her rising gospel singing career. In fact, it was just the spiritual bulletin material she needed to fuel her fervent drive to press and navigate toward her destiny.
“I was told four years ago from a family member that I am not on a level to be able to sing at The Potter’s House…that my voice was for ‘smaller churches,’” Brackens-Denby, a native of Dallas, recalls. “It is nothing wrong with singing anywhere. I have sung at numerous churches and platforms. From the pulpit to politics. Large and small. But the individual constantly dismissed the gift that God has given me and degraded the anointing on my life.”

In Making Headline News’ Woman Thou Art Loosed Virtual Experience advance coverage leading to Bishop T. D. Jakes’ annual event that will take place October 15-17, Brackens-Denby described her relative’s unlikely putdown of her music as shocking, to say the least.
“(I was) in shock,” Brackens-Denby said of the disheartening exchange with her family member. “I was silent in the natural, not saying a word as they were speaking outwardly.”
It was that very point, Brackens-Denby acknowledged, that she sensed it was time she diligently sought and consult God for a divine sense of direction.
“In the spirit, I bind every word and curse from satan,” Brackens-Denby recalls. “And now, here I am two singles, an EP (extended play), and the relational team as well as The Bishop Thomas Dexter Jakes reading this very story, a true story. Get ready. Get ready. Get ready!”
Much to her delight, Brackens-Denby has proven time and again that she’s more than ready to embrace the divine calling on her life through her brilliantly remarkable gift to the Body of Christ.
In 2017, she witnessed her gospel music career come full circle with the much-anticipated release of her first single, “I Will Bless The Lord.”
Not to be outdone, Brackens-Denby’s sophomore single, “I’ll Praise You,” made its ceremonious debut in Fall 2019. And, just recently, Brackens-Denby’s newly-released extended play (EP) entitled “Rising Higher,” a spiritually-empowering project that was produced by KJ Productions.
Three years removed from having made her gospel recording debut, Brackens-Denby’s immeasurable musical gifts are steadily attracting the attention of the mainstream media.
“I am grateful to network with ministries, business and ministry-related magazines, newspapers, TV stations, and radio stations,” said Brackens-Denby, referring to her constant rise in success as ‘a local tour belly of the whale experience,’ considering she been featured in several albums and have been afforded the golden opportunity to work with a Grammy-award winning producer.
As for her latest project, which has generated an array of favorable reviews, Brackens-Denby deems it especially intriguing, considering it depicts a memorable moments of her life.
“This EP is about me going through a process, experiencing pain and pressure that propelled me to my purpose,” Brackens-Denby said. “I want to let everyone know that nothing in life is easy. We are all in need of God’s grace and mercy. This project conveys my journey in rising above obstacles, praising God despite hurts, and allowing God to heal me and remind me that love conquers all.”
Even when love and forbearance aren’t exhibited from others, particularly those who supposedly are close to us.
“(My mission is) to spread the uncompromising gospel of Jesus Christ,” Brackens-Denby said. “Soul winning is my mission. I am about my Father’s business. “My grandparents and mother (inspired me to pursue my musical ambitions). “They have always taught me to, ‘Use what’s in your hands, use the gifts that are given to you.’ At a young age, my grandmother taught us how to sing, serve, manage money, and bookkeeping in the church and it stuck with me.

“I still have those notes and uphold the values,” Brackens-Denby jokingly added. “My family, faith, and future are my inspiration. Someone helped me and I want to help the next generation get ahead and be well.”
Not to mention help them to defy seemingly insurmountable odds.
Just as she did.
