St. Louis native Cheneta Jones is establishing an astonishing presence in Gospel music. Her fresh sound, magnetic character and pure vocal quality has her dubbed as The One To Watch! This young breakout solo artist is in demand and on the road with a heavy tour schedule and key appearances in preparation of her highly anticipated national debut CD release TRANSFORMED. “Cheneta Jones is an amazing inspirational artist with a smooth, passionate vocal style and is claiming her place in the world of Gospel and Christian music,” notes Ace Alexander, Sheridan Gospel Network Music Director.
TRANSFORMED, released May 22, perfectly captures Cheneta’s crisp, powerful voice, and keeps audiences absorbed with her incredible stage presence, voice control and the element of surprise. “I want listeners to be able to hear a song and reflect on how it applies to their life,” Cheneta explains. “In addition, for those who are not believers, it is my intention to draw them to Christ through practical means and not religiosity.”
Inspired by her own personal failures, victories and encounters with God, Cheneta continues to perfect her skill and that confidence is echoed in her artistry and ministry. Her name is synonymous with real life music and prolific lyrics. “Transformed depicts numerous personal experiences, and my growth as a maturing Christian,” she says. “I’ve been through a lot in the last two years and have overcome many obstacles, so this new album is very relatable and expresses my love for Jesus – He is my everything.”
Cheneta has developed a strong radio presence with two Top 40 Gospel singles – the urban inspirational hit “Be Like You” and the compelling worship anthem “We Worship You”.
