Tasha Cobbs is proving herself to be more than just “the next big voice” in gospel. Yes, her voice is amazing but after listening to the songs on her upcoming solo project, you will quickly learn, this chick is a triple threat! A prolific songwriter, a true singer’s singer ( think a little bit of Kelly Price, Kari Jobe and Jasmine Sullivan) and shes an incredible preacher. After hearing only a few moments of her singing, you understand she has power, can deliver a mighty and smooth alto AND will smash you to pieces!
Creative as a little girl, this PK was born the only daughter to Bishop Fritz and Lady Bertha Cobbs. Raised in Jesup, Ga, Tasha passed the time singing with her first cousins who all are incredible minstrels as well.
One would be surprised to learn she was a bit of a tomboy in her formative years. She initially possessed little desire to do the whole “girlie thing,” so it’s no surprise that it wasn’t until high school that she began to express her gift of being a “fashionista”. One look at her stylish creations and you’ll definitely be sold on her clothing line which is soon to come.
In 2006, as fate would have it, she heard the voice of God telling her to relocate to Atlanta. Her father came to her with a confirming word and within hours, she loaded her belongings and began her journey to pursue destiny. She attended service at the dReam Center church of ATLANTA and was assured that it was where God desired for her to be. Without hesitation, she approached the altar becoming the first official partner of the ministry.
Within months, she connected with her Pastor, William H. Murphy, iii and became one of his background vocalist. Under his guidance and care she has grown to higher heights in prayer, worship and leadership. She’s also been blessed to record with Murphy and many other artists as a lead and background vocalist.
Tasha is currently completing her undergraduate studies at Beulah Heights University. As her gift continues to make room for her and place her before great men, Tasha prays daily that God would “keep me humbled at your feet and never take your anointing away.” She’s extremely proud that she’s a submitted daughter to Pastors William and Danielle Murphy who have entrusted her to be the Worship pastor at the dReam Center church of ATLANTA.
Brighter days are ahead as she releases her First Solo Project…Summer 2010!
