Her unique artistry, influenced by the sounds of her nation of Jamaica, brings a fresh expression of worship to the larger Gospel community. I’m grateful for her contributions to our industry, and I’m honored to call her a friend.” – Don Moen, International Worship Leader.
“Chevelle Franklyn is a wonderful woman of God. A worshipper inspired by the word. She has a unique way of passing the gospel to the world that makes her magnificent. In my few words she is a woman worth emulating and her ministry poses great influence to the world at large, I celebrate you great woman of God” – Sinach – Sponsored by grace.
