Music Transcending the Moment – Damara Melissa

Music Transcending the Moment – Damara Melissa

Many times, song writers will create music that reflects a major incident that has impacted their life. The music allows them to communicate their feelings, their trials, their heartache and with Christian believers, often they will communicate their faith as well.

Our guest today has had her music played on several Canadian Christian Radio stations; she has made it to the Joy Radio’s Top 20 Christian music list and received a Covenant Award Nomination for “Breakthrough Artist of the Year” in 2022 and another nomination for “Pop Song of the Year” in 2023.

Damara Melissa is a singer-songwriter from Ontario, Canada, whose music is driven by her Faith. Her soulful voice, mixed with her pop melodies and style, bring a unique vibe to the Contemporary Christian Music space.

Damara has just released her a song that is her own version of “A Thousand Hallelujahs” that is just awesome… She also released here first short album, called “Beginnings,” which document her journey through some of the painful experiences she has gone through…and she is currently working on a second EP called, “The Space Between.”

To discuss both of these releases, help me welcome to the program, Damara Melissa! Damara, thank you for taking the time to join us today… I do appreciate it!

The first question I always start with is this… other than that brief information I just shared, can you tell us in your own words, “Who is Damara Melissa?”

You were born in the Caribbean…How old were you when you moved to Canada?

Was the music in Canada was a bit different from Caribbean music that you were used to?

You experienced a personal loss that led you to begin writing Christian music, correct?

Who is this music being published through?

How much does your Faith influence the music you now write?

Tell us why you put your spin on “Thousand Halleluiahs…”

Are you looking at going on tour or joining a group? What is your goal as a Christian music artist?

What is the process you use to write your music? Do you just write down your thoughts and let the Holy Spirit guide you from there? Or is there a special process you use?

What is the one take away you want the listeners of your music to have?

Where can someone go to download or purchase your music?

Damara, this is so interesting… if someone has a question or would like to reach out to you, how can they do that? How can someone get in touch with you?

I’ll put links to all of this in the show notes below.

Folks, music is the pathway to the soul. You can find out a lot about a person by listening to the music they enjoy. If you don’t believe me – just do an observation around you as you go shopping or out and about next time. David became KING because He used music to worship the Lord. Amen! That is what brought him to a position of favor with King Saul and eventually, to become King and – through his lineage, we get to Jesus! Amen! And it all started with music! Praise God!

I want to encourage you to make a purchase of Damara Mellissa’s music and allow the Holy Spirit to minister to YOU through her music. Amen! Just drop down into the show notes and click the links right there to get in touch with Damara and to get her music loaded to you listening devices. Amen! Do it right now!
