After seven years, award-winning Singer/Songwriter, Sheri LaFontaine stepped back into Daywind Recording Studio to record her 5th solo album - produced by Dove Award winner, Marty Funderburk and Sheri, herself. The CD is titled, "Honest," which Sheri says comes from a deep place. Sheri stated," This project is a celebration of embracing hope after a season of depression and loss. These songs come from a very vulnerable and honest place, that I hope people will relate to and be blessed by. "
Honest is a unique combination of original songs written by Sheri and a few covers, such as Teddy Huffam's "I'm Rich", Kim Hopper's "Peace in the Midst of the Storm" and Mercy Me's "Greater".
This album continues to display the range and versatility that has helped her win the hearts of her audiences for over 30 years.
No doubt, one of the most powerful voices in southern gospel, Sheri LaFontaine, became well-known in the industry after traveling four years with The Arnolds. She had also filled in for Angie Hoskins on a few occasions.
She is a Telly Award winner for her vocal performance on the "Jet Express" radio jingle.
She received an American Idol Gold Ticket at Disney's Hollywood Studios competition but chose not to pursue it further. "It was something I did, just for fun and was honored to win", she said. "But I know that God has called me to sing Christian music alone".
Her radio single, "New Every Morning", continues to receive significant airplay on Sirius XM.
She wrote a #1 song for the group LordSong in the nineties. Other artists that have recorded her songs are Karen Peck, Kim Hopper, Brian Free and Assurance, Sue Dodge, Michael Booth, Three Bridges, The Browns and Misty Freeman.
For the past several years, Sheri has been on the road with her family complete with a live band, performing at the Gaither Fall Festival with friend, Woody Wright. She performed with the Gaither Vocal Band in December of 2019 as a soloist and was asked to sing backup vocals for Bill Gaither on the "Something to Say" taping, as well as Joseph Habedank's first Gaither video taping.
She recently performed for Bishop Marvin Winans at Perfecting Church in Detroit.
Sheri continues to be a blessing and relates well to any audience.
