Kerron Proves the Power in Praise


kerron_ennis_edit.jpgKerron began singing at the tender age of eight years in Jamaica in her local church and thereon set her sights and ambition on becoming an instrument of music for the Lord. She has moved tens of thousand while touring the island with the Perpetual Team and at local churches and the accolades have started rolling in. Her ministry is being demanded locally and on the international scene.

Born, August 22, 1982, in the parish of St Andrew, she is the fifth child of Lascelles and Derisa Ennis and grew up in the Patrick City Community, where her artistic ability has captured the hearts of many. She has been the choir director for the Youth and Combined choirs of the Boulevard Church of the Nazarene and has received the commission from the Lord to sing and to make His praise glorious. Her dedication for the Lord is indelibly etched into her motto of Acts 20:24, "but none of these things moved me, neither count I my life dear unto myself, so that I might finish my course with joy, and the ministry, which I have received of the Lord Jesus, to testify the gospel of the grace of God."

After entering the Jamaica Cultural Development's Gospel Festival in 2003 with the title song, "No Wonder," written by Clifton and Margaret Clarke, Kerron came in third place. She then became a well sought after alto singer. From this the musical stage of greatness was then set and Kerron has no intention of looking back.

Kerron has shared the stage with many local and international artists like: Michael W. Smith, Marvia Providence, Toby Mac and Huntley Brown. On the local scene, she graced the stage with the Katalysts Crew, DJ Nicholas, Lt. Stitchie, Carlene Davis, Judy Mowatt, Papa San and Chevelle Franklyn just to name a few. She also performed at the Spring Break gospel festival "Fun in the Sun", an annual event sponsored by Glory Music where the merging of international and local artist meet on the same stage.

When the need came for the Jamaican population to 'bawl' out on behalf of the nation, it was Kerron who led the Perpetual Praise team in worship at the launch of the Jamaica Bawl Out 2, held in October 2004 at the St. William Grant Park in downtown Kingston.

Presently, Kerron has her pre-release album on the market and has shared studio time with Lt Stitchie with "We Need God" and DJ Nicholas with "Daddy Oh." The songs have been getting air play on a number of radio stations in Jamaica and have been number one for six months on LOVE FM chart. Fans have reported hearing their favorite Kerron track on Roots FM, Mus Bus, LOVE FM, RJR, Mega Jam, Irie FM among others radio stations. And on the international scene she has been aired on Mystic 1580 AM in the US, as well as on stations in New York, New Jersey, Boston, Canada and Europe.
