Patience, and persistence; when coupled together best describe the beautiful chemistry that is Latasha Morgan. With the understanding that it is crucial in life to trust and wait on God, she does her best not to run ahead of the Lord when He is not leading. Born a minister’s daughter, she was taught early about the everlasting love of Christ and how He alone came to offer salvation to each and every person who was willing to accept Him. With that in mind, she chose to accept Christ at the early age of eight years old and began a life that would prove that God always has everything under control. latasha’s father says that she would lay in her crib singing little melodies, and he was amazed that before she could crawl, walk, or speak she was creating songs in her heart and trying to share them with whoever was near to listen. As she matured, Latasha decided to overcome a horrible shyness that would have been crippling had she allowed it. Latasha joined everything musical; her elementary school music group, church choir and took any opportunity that was presented where she could sing and share her love for music. She began piano and voice lessons at eight years old, desiring to know more of her craft. On stage, she was a natural and felt welcomed and right at home. In Junior High School she began to work on her songwriting abilities, wanting to perfect them. The opportunity came for her to write for her first show and again she gave her all for such a wonderful occasion; The Annual A.T. Show. This show gave her the understanding and confidence that what she most wanted to do was to write, sing and perform her own music. In 1992 a new school was auditioning for talented actors, dancers and singers and when she heard about it, Latasha began diligently preparing material to impress the judges of the auditions. (And it certainly paid off) She was accepted at the Las Vegas Academy of International Studies and Performing Arts, where she studied music, tap, jazz, acting, along with her regular curriculum. While there she was approached by various record companies, but being under age; her father felt she was not ready for that and so any talk of a record deal would be turned down. ( a true blessing) Unwilling to waiver, she auditioned for a job as a singing waitress at Roxy’s Diner; one of her more enjoyable jobs, she recalls. It was here that Las Vegas came to Latasha. She was offered jobs for shows, placed on billboards, in magazines, newspapers, commercials and was really enjoying life, but longing to be even closer to God. Confused about why she was feeling this way she began to question if where she was is where God had placed her? Realizing what had finally become obvious she walked away from the Las Vegas neon lights, and took the next five years to build a more intimate relationship with Christ, and that has made all the difference. Combining her love for Christ, His Love and His Sacrifice; she now sings of her relationship and belief in a God so real that the music, she admits, sincerely ministers to her even while writing it. With a style she refers to as “gospel funk rock meets acoustic soul,” Latasha is sure to inspire you with her beautiful soul stirring melodies and Christ inspired words. This music was created to draw anyone to desire a true and intimate relationship with Christ.
