Riding high off the success of her latest single “Victory”, Bahamian-American contemporary gospel artist Chesternique is poised to make her mark in the music industry.
Singing publicly since the age of 8, Chesternique is a seasoned performer. After her parents heard her singing in the shower, she spent the early years of her music career singing in the church choir and performing at small events. Soon she independently released her debut single, “Get My Praise On” in 2010. The success of the song merited Chesternique the opportunity to perform it later that year at the Marlin Awards.
Chesternique continued to hone her vocal skills as the first vocalist for the jazz combo in addition to singing in the chorale during her college years at Taylor Univeristy in Indiana. After graduating in 2011, she returned to the Bahamas and continued to sing with fellow contemporaries until a record deal was offered by Elevation Records. Chesternique triumphantly announced her arrival into the gospel industry with the release of her debut album Expressions of the Heart in September 2012.
She headlined her first concert shortly after, with the former Damita Haddon of Detroit as a special guest. Since then she has gone on several tours, performing her hits in the United States. Chesternique’s soulful sound and winning drive have garnered her lots of attention in a few short years. Her journey to becoming an international sensation continues as she uses her music to encourage others to enhance their relationships with God.
Chesternique is a 2014 Marlin Award winner for her hit single, “Thank You” from the Expressions of The Heart Album, 2016 Elevation Awards nominee for Female Artist of the Year and Gospel Song of the Year for her latest single, Victory and 2018 Kindred Award winner for Contemporary Female of the Year.
