Jasmine Murray is well known for her powerhouse vocals as a finalist on season eight of “American Idol,”and being crowned Miss Mississippi in 2014. After American idol fell through, Jasmine Murray tried her hand at songwriting, and eventually decided to return to her roots and commit to school full-time in Starkville, Mississippi, where one of her siblings lived. It was at her sister’s church that she fell in love with worship music, and God began to reveal His bigger and better plans. “I got involved with the worship team and started helping on Sundays,” she says. “That was where I felt like God just completely changed up my plans.”
Worship made her feel alive. “That experience was just so incredible. It took the focus off of me. I felt like God was using me to help people to connect with Him, Jasmine reveals. “I felt like God was saying, ‘I want you to use whatever I’ve given you to glorify me.’”
She continued growing in her relationship with the Lord and her desire to help others. That season “was helping me to come into my own.” She founded a nonprofit called 13 Going on 30, a mentoring organization whose message to young girls is: don’t desire to act and look like a 30-year-old or make decisions like one. She traveled to schools and churches encouraging girls to learn and embrace their worth at a young age so they’ll avoid life-altering consequences.
