Tamela Knight, on Tamela Knight... "I'm a 52 year old Married Mother of 5 and Grandmother of 2—-grew up listening to my Dad sing in church and watching him perform in a traveling Gospel Quartet....learned to play keyboards at 3 years old by Grandmother who was legally blind and couldn’t read music, so she taught me to play by ear——I have sang in various choirs, Worship Teams throughout the years but never really “stepped out of my box” as a singer to see what people would think of my voice. One night after signing up my daughter for cheer leading, I noticed a sign in front of a local Grill where they were having a Karaoke contest so I thought I would give it a shot. I ended upon winning to represent the State of Ohio in Little Rock, Arkansas in the Nationals . That planted a seed inside me where I wanted to know more.....One contest led to another and another and another and has blossomed into these past couple of years and my singing opportunities now......I love God with all of my being and I know there is a reason why this all came about at this later time in my life——- every door that opens I will continue to walk through as long as I have breath in my lungs—Life is short——tomorrow is never guaranteed so why not live out your passions? I use to be that person who was at an Event listening to a singer, a band and I use to say “What if”—-now I’m the person up in front of people living my dream. I may not ever become famous but in my children’s eyes and the eyes of my grandchildren——I am sending a message ——hopefully a very strong one——“you will never know if you can catch a dream unless you reach for it”——don’t leave this world thinking “what if”....."
