Benaiah is driven to pull God’s people out of the “pit” so that they will rise up and take hold of what the Father has for them. Her passion is exhorting, serving and giving. She believes wholeheartedly in the principle of “being thy brother’s keeper". As the president of “Project Homeless” she has been instrumental in providing meals and clothes for more than 10,000 homeless persons in Texas. Moreover, as the co-president of Benaiah ministries, she has sponsored “Project School Backpack” for various organizations to include United Way organizations and the United States military. In addition to teaching a class on “Battlefield of the Mind”, she established dance and banner teams in several prisons in Texas.
She attended the University of Texas and received a bachelor’s degree in Biochemistry. In that same year, she received her certificate of Chaplaincy from the Dallas Baptist Association. Furthermore, she received her Masters degree a few years later. Moreover, in pursuit of knowing “Him” more, she graduated from the School of the First Born in 2007, a school of ministry within the Christian House of Prayer. Her pastors, Nate and Valerie Holcomb consider her a valuable asset to the ministry. Unashamedly she boasts that her Father knows best, and that she will wait for His Will, Wisdom and His Way. Her testimony is its all about Him.
Captivating, Inspiring, Anointed and Powerful are just a few of the accolades that fans use to describe the music of Benaiah. Her trademark mellifluous, yet in-your-face voice possesses a tender sophisticated poignancy. A Jacksonville, Florida native, Benaiah uses inspiring lyrics and outstanding vocals to deliver her message of hope and praise over a powerful bed of eclectic contemporary rhythms.
Her new single, “Lord Lead Me” is a feel good anthem that speaks to the Lord asking Him to keep us on the path that he ordained for our lives. The song is dynamically arranged cleverly mixing the background vocals over a track that will leave you wanting more. “Lord Lead Me” is from Benaiah’s full length CD scheduled to be released in May of 2012. With her debut single “Lord You Are” and her two videos (Lord You Are and I Hear the Sound), featured on the Gospel Music Channel and BET, she is geared to take her ministry and artistry to new levels.
As a psalmist, the anointing of God upon her and her gift of music leaves her audiences encouraged, uplifted and richly inspired. Benaiah has opened for Stellar Award winners Dottie Peoples, Marvin Sapp, James Fortune and Bishop Paul Morton. Moreover, she has opened for Grammy nominee Vashawn Mitchell and Grammy award winner Yolanda Adams. As a soldier in the United States Army, she immediately became a favorite for singing her fellow soldiers to sleep each night and during times of despair. She was popular choice for performing at special military and political events. She is the two-time winner of the “Most Inspirational Female in Central Texas” award and the "Yellow Rose of Texas Award".
