Coming In September 2017
Lynda Tait Randle, as Bill Gaither has fondly introduced her for over a decade, was born in the inner city of Washington, D.C. She is the middle child of seven and feels blessed to have had the privilege of being raised in a Christian home. Although her parents, Nathel and Maxine Tait, taught her and her siblings the love of Christ very early on, Lynda still experienced a tumultuous and painful childhood. Despite being led to the Lord at the young age of 12, it would be years later before she really experienced the freedom from bondage that only
God could give, Music became a way out of pain and heartache for Lynda and as a result of this God-given gift, many doors of opportunity have opened up for her.
Lynda’s distinct alto voice has created opportunities for her to minister across the United States and around the world. Her gift has allowed her to share the stage with musical legends, from Andre Crouch to Gladys Knight. Lynda has opened for national sporting events and has had the distinct honor of being a musical guest for a Billy Graham crusade. She has been a favorite on the Gaither Homecoming Series and Videos. Her two most requested songs are “God On The Mountain” and “I’m Free.” In 2005, she won a Dove Award for her album, “A Tribute To Mahalia Jackson.” One remarkable element to Lynda and her ministry is her ability to quickly build rapport with audiences and draw them together regardless of age, race, or ethnicity. Her message and music is truly cross cultural. This is a theme that can be seen through her individual performances, women’s conferences, books, and albums. Married to Michael Randle she has two daughters, Patience and Joy.
JOINING with Lynda will be the GMA nominated VOICES OF PRAISE gospel choir directed by James Strange of CRM Music. This choir consists of many well known and loved gospel groups and singers from across the country and are now into their 9th year.
Also taking part will be the award winning GMA winner LIVE ISSUE. This is probably Northern Ireland;s best in live country gospel bands who have toured across the country, Europe and America as well as sang at the Grand Old Oprey in Nashville.
