Season 6 Sunday Best winner Tasha Page Lockhart talks new marriage, new music and more in the upcoming Issue of WE Magazine (Empowering People Everywhere To Change The Conversation).
Tasha is one of my favorite female Gospel artist to keep up with. Not only can the girl sing her face off, but she walks boldly in her truth. I’ve never seen her conform to what the “saints” feel a Gospel artist should dress like or look like…. In her words …she’s just different and I love that about her!
Award-winning songstress Tasha (formally known as Tasha Page-Lockhart) reemerges on the music scene as the first lady of Legacy Music Group, and as a woman who is focused on healing and helping by sharing her powerful new single “Why Not Me” and the significance behind it.
“No one can escape tragedy and pain,” said the singer. “I could have been bitter, could have committed suicide and perhaps pointed the finger but instead, I owned up to my actions, unpacked the pain and through my emotions and lyrics have built a warrior who is healing and fighting every day.”
In preparation for the recording process, Tasha was determined to find the courage to face her tormented past consisting of sexual assault and substance abuse. Following extensive soul searching, she put pen to paper and what followed was a heartfelt moment of healing, resulting in her current single “Why Not Me” now on Apple Music, Spotify, and TIDAL.
In 2003, Tasha renewed her spiritual foundation, rehabilitated from substance abuse and subsequently found success. She was crowned the winner of season six of BET’s Sunday Best and followed up with a handful of sensational albums including Here Right Now, Jesus Revealed and The Beautiful Project. She’s graced numerous stages with electrifying performances on BET’s 106 & Park, TV One and Tyler Perry’s “Madea on the Run” to name a few. Along the way, she secured movie roles, experienced Billboard chart success, nabbed music awards and established herself as a prominent author. Backed by her spiritual rebirth and rehabilitation, Tasha became a certified crisis counselor to serve as a life coach to help lift anyone in need. In addition, she also Pastor’s a church in Mt. Vernon, NY with her husband Dr. Veron House.
