TO GIVE THIS CD A REVIEW, SCROLL TO THE BOTTOM
This Pacific Northwest native has a heavenly message and a name to match. Elisha, which in Hebrew means "God of Salvation", thinks of little else than sharing the love of God in song, timely teaching and practical living.
Elisha has loved singing since childhood. She sang her first solo in a Christmas play in fourth grade. At age 13, she began directing and playing for church choirs.
Elisha''s solo debut album, FOUNDATION, was released shortly before the tragic events of September 11, 2001. The songs comforted many and still do today.
Eager to experience the entire recording process, Elisha wrote nine of the songs, laid the background vocals, and programmed all of the music. She collaborated closely with her photographer on the graphic design and layout.
In honor of the late Danniebelle Hall (formerly of Andre'' Crouch and the Disciples), Elisha has re-recorded the song "What Kind Of Love Is This" from Dannibelle''s solo album "This Moment".
Elisha continues to direct and play for choirs will remaining in high demand as a soloist.
Elisha has an extensive list of other achievements. She is a gifted teacher, active missionary, summer youth program leader, and soup kitchen coordinator. She leads discipleship training classes and serves as the 5th District Worship Director for the Women''s Missionary Society of the AME Church.
Her passions include education reform, care ministry for congregations, intergenerational relations, and racial equity.
With her husband, Pastor Lonnie Mitchell and three of their children, Elisha serves the congregation of Bethel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Spokane, Washington in music and missions.
