Through her soul stirring performances and life-transforming compositions, singer-songwriter-actress Latice Crawford has become a favorite in the inspirational music & entertainment community. Blessed with a bold, powerful voice that has drawn comparisons to Whitney Houston and Vanessa Bell Armstrong, the gospel singer's cadre of fans have come to know that the unique musical experience the Bronx, New York-native brings stems from a testimony of triumphs and struggles, which she passionately shares in her music.

Raised the daughter of a preacher, Crawford spent much of her early life heavily involved in the church, serving as choir director, praise and worship leader, and lead vocalist for local ensembles. These experiences provided the perfect training ground for the vocal powerhouse to hone her signature sound and gripping delivery of God's message through gospel music.

 

Crawford gained national notoriety during her breakout performances on Season 2 of BET's ‘Sunday Best’, where she achieved second runner up.  Following the TV series, she released her self-titled debut album in 2014, which brought the inspiring hit  "There".

In 2016 Crawford released her sophomore project, Diary of A Church Girl.  The critically acclaimed EP garnered Crawford her first Stellar Award nomination, a second Billboard charting album, and brought listeners a deep look into Crawford’s personal relationship with God through songs such as "Author" and “Choose Me". Self-penned and nakedly autobiographical, the project resonates with authenticity in ways that transcend traditional gospel song story lines.

 

 connection with her audience and commitment to ministry extends well beyond music. As a contributor to the Huffington Post and Essence, she has written on a range of topics to include mental wellness, parenting, race relations, and self-care. Additionally, Crawford recently starred in the 15th anniversary run of the hit musical stage play Crowns. Audiences and critics lauded her portrayal of the character Velma as "soul-stirring" and "transcendent".

Now, as a member of the eOne Nashville family, Crawford is gearing up for the release of her third project, The Cure. The lead singles, "Amazing" and "Something Something" provide a perfect preview into the message of hope there revered singer intends to bring.

 

States Crawford, “In our life journey, there are so many different 'medicines' we come to rely on to satisfy our needs, wants, and search for meaning - relationships, money, success, and more.  What I began to realize is that these are temporary fixes only soothe symptoms, but never address the underlying ailment.  For people like me who want more, who want a cure, this project is for them"

PRESS & REVIEWS

 

"It’s not only Latice Crawford’s powerhouse vocals, athletic melisma, and seemingly bottomless reserves of soul that are bringing audiences to their feet at the Long Wharf Theatre. The force of her rendition of the gospel classic “His Eye is On the Sparrow” is sustained by its dramatic context

   

-New Haven Independent

“The word “testimony” could be substituted for “diary” in Diary of a Church Girl, Latice Crawford’s introspective and autobiographical follow-up EP.  This is a message that could be extended over a full-length album, but perhaps keeping listeners wanting more is what Crawford is striving for.  And I’d rather listen to 20 minutes of well-considered music than 75 minutes of the same ol’ same ol’. ”

       -Journal of Gospel Music

“Latice Crawford’s signature tone and passionate delivery is sure to resonate with audiences everywhere.”
