In the wonderful name of our Lord and Savior, JESUS CHRIST, we bring you greetings from ANDRE + LINDA!
We have been singing together for more than 18 years, and married for 16 years. The "Ashford and Simpson" of Gospel Music is what our Pastor affectionately calls us! Andre is a native of Norfolk, Virginia and Linda are from Newport News, Virginia. As veterans of the U.S.Army, ANDRE + LINDA have a great appreciation for those who serve, and have served in the military services of the United States of America.
We are very excited about how God is blessing our ministry to reach out and touch those who need an encouraging word. To spread the gospel through the songs God has put in us, is our sincere goal. Oh taste and see, look and listen, to the message given us by our Father in the words of "ALTER CALL" and "WEEPIN ENDURETH BUT A NIGHT".
Under the umbrella of "PRODUCTIONS OF OSEI", (another name for Productions of the King) ANDRE + LINDA plan to add new artists to their roster in the not too distant future. Andre's musical background goes back to age 7 when he sang with the "Cherry Gospel Singers". Through the years, his musical talents have taken him to Europe and around the world, performing in the USO Shows for the U.S. Army. According to Linda (his wife), God has given Andre the gift of a master songwriter!
Linda's musical experiences also go back to an early age where she played clarinet from elementary school through college. In the early days Linda was blessed to sing under the direction of Consuela Lee Morehead (Spike Lee's Aunt) who inspired her to continue to persue music! Linda received music scholarships to attend Hampton University, but actually graduated with a B.S. Degree in Speech & Drama Education. Who knew?
ANDRE + LINDA love the Lord, and are very grateful to be used as an instrument of the King. We are members of FIRST BAPTIST CHURCH MORRISON, Newport News, Virginia, and have been blessed witha a true man of God, the Pastor, Rev.Dr. Marcellus L. Harris, Jr.
