Gospel singer Jekalyn Almonique Carr has been making waves in the gospel music scene since she was only 15. Born in 1992 to parents Allen Lindsay Carr and Jennifer Denise Carr. Jekalyn was raised in West Memphis, Arkansas. While still in school, Jekalyn began to pursue her passion for music and has since become one of her generation's most successful gospel singers.
Jekalyn’s debut album, Greater Is Coming, was released in 2013 and made it to number three on the Billboard 200. But this was just a teaser for what God had in store for the young soulstress. In 2016, her hit single “You’re Bigger” peaked at No. 1 on the Billboard Gospel Airplay chart. Jekalyn also received her first Grammy nomination for Best Gospel Performance/Song for the same single, “You’re Bigger.” The success of her many albums solidified her place in the gospel music industry, and since then, she has gone on to achieve numerous accolades.
