Born in Starkville, Mississippi, Jasmine Murray grew up in a single parent household as the youngest of five children. Her love for music began at an early age…from singing along with the car radio to giving mini-concerts at home to singing in church choir. After being a Top 13 finalist on American Idol Season 8, God began opening up doors like never before – including singing for President Obama at the National Prayer and performing on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and Live! with Regis & Kelly. Jasmine was crowned Miss Mississippi in 2014, and finished in the Top 10 at Miss America 2015. Jasmine’s music has been featured in the soundtrack for God’s Not Dead 2, and her debut EP Fearless will release in 2017.
"There are so many people who struggle with fear, anxiety, doubt, and worry. Maybe you’re the ten year old girl who’s afraid to say her speech in front of her class. Or maybe you’re a woman who feels like she’s not good enough at work or not good enough as a mom. People tend to think they’re alone in their struggles because no one else seems to be talking about it. But that’s so not true! It’s just so tough to know what people are really struggling with or going through, because our tendency is to look like we have it all together. I struggle with those exact same feelings. In fact, I remember trying to pull myself together before I went into a writing session…in the middle of a season of my life when I had been letting fear overtake me. I had just experienced a panic attack in my car, and before I knew it, I burst into tears right there in the studio. It was so amazing though, because the guys I was writing with both immediately started praying for me and reminded me of a passage in Second Timothy that says ‘God has not given us the spirit of fear, but of power, of love and of a sound mind.’ Being reminded that God is with us every step of the way brought such a peace. After we finished praying, we sat down and wrote this really incredible song that just declares the power and authority we have in Jesus’ name. We cannot overcome fear on our own. If we try – like I have – we’re going to fail. But when we believe in Him, He promises us courage and strength…and He’ll empower us to know that through Christ we are conquerors, we can overcome anything, and that we are called to be bold and fearless in every way!" – Jasmine Murray
