Biography

From Inspirational to R&B, Pop and Alternative Rock, even lending her vocal attributes to Hip-Hop duets, songstress Anastia does it all with one thing remaining common in every music genre she seduces, she puts her soul into her music. With a million plus artists swarming the Internet and dying for exposure graceful artists such as Anastia just lets her music speak for itself. “My music allows me to creatively express the way I feel,” says Anastia whose voice floats over sound like a butterfly does above air. “And in my writing connect me to the world, which translated through my songs I can share a piece of me with everyone.” Counting the gospel voices of The Winans, Yolanda Adams and Crystal Lewis as musical inspirations along with Pop Icon’s such as, Whitney Huston and Mariah Carey, says, “My father, Harold Benjamin Johnson, was and still is my biggest inspiration of them all.” Anastia began singing professionally in the late 90’s and performing in early Millennium, owes the start of her musical passion to her father “He loved music, I can remember as a child singing along with him from my room as he played the piano.” With a career goal to bless the world with her musical talents and in respect to those who have also in turn blessed her life she has no plans of slowing down. “I love singing and performing, I enjoyed traveling and meeting new people,” says Anastia about the enjoyment she gets from touring and being on stage as a performer. “I am truly grateful that I can reach out to people and help others in a way that only music can. I feel through my music that I can speak for and relate to people.” Anastia is a rare fresh breathe of air in a saturated and polluted music industry. As she says it best “Poetry in motion, with music in notion," she is guaranteed to conquer every musical aspiration in her grasp with the extraordinary graceful manner her music exhibits.

Lyrics

Secrets

Written By: Anastia

Verse 1: Why must you cry and hold it all inside
Is there no one you can talk too?
Many people give advice and offer to help
With secret intentions of only helping themselves
So many years gone by since we last spoke
You say things have changed but by how much I don't know
Seems though you want to speak where to begin
So I break the silence

Chorus: Tell me your secrets I'll tell you mine
All of the fears that you hold deep inside
All your regrets hopes and dreams
Don’t leave nothing out tell me what’s in between

Verse 2: Do you really want to know you start to say
About the person that you knew me as and the life I portray
I were a smile to keep hidden within
This hurt that I carry from being miss leaded
Cant take the pain tiered of all the lies
I need to be set free from this comprise
When will it stop I'm letting go?
And I'm losing control so…

Chorus: Tell me your secrets I'll tell you mine
All of the fears that you hold deep inside
All your regrets hopes and dreams
Don’t leave nothing out tell me what’s in between

Bridge: You kept concealed the feelings you felt
For so long now so long now scared of the truth
and what it revealed what it revealed

Chorus: Tell me your secrets I'll tell you mine
All of the fears that you hold deep inside
All your regrets hopes and dreams
Don’t leave nothing out tell me what’s in between

Save Me

Written By: Anastia

Verse 1: I did the best that I knew how
Even when it meant jeopardizing myself
Go out of my way just to make your day
And in return expect nothing (nothing)
But it didn’t matter as long as you smiled
Even if it were just for a little while
To bad that all though I truly cared
Now that I need you, you are not there

Chorus: Who’s gone a save me
Who’s gone a rescue me
Who’s gone a save me from myself
This is an S.O.S and I’m crying out for help
Tell me…

Who’s gone a save me
Who’s gone a rescue me
Who’s gone a save me from myself
When I’m always trying to save everyone else
Tell me…

Verse 2: You could of called me a letter would do
Just so that I know feelings are mutual
Whenever you came around did not have to ask
Seems I fell victim to giving my last
Slowly I realized I couldn’t breathe
Holding my breath until I’m set free
Set free, set free, free…

Chorus: Who’s gone a save me
Who’s gone a rescue me
Who’s gone a save me from myself
This is an S.O.S and I’m crying out for help
Tell me…

Who’s gone a save me
Who’s gone a rescue me
Who’s gone a save me from myself
When I’m always trying to save everyone else
Tell me… (Who’s going to save me?)

Lovely Day

Written By: Anastia & Rony J

Verse 1: Woke up this morning sun shining bright on my face
Jump out of bed ready to start my day
Ready to strut my stuff I’m smiling mighty heavy
I feel the love it’s gone a be a lovely day
Just cant let my distractions get the best of me
Cause this feeling that I’m feeling it feels so good
Feel so good like a winner coming out of Hollywood
Can’t tell me nothing cause it’s gone a be a lovely day

Chorus: Its Gone a be a lovely day
Come rain or shine Its Gone a be a lovely day
Its Gone a be a lovely day
Won’t let nothing stand in my way
It’s a lovely day

Verse 2: Days are racing past months are ever so fast
It’s getting worse and worse as the weeks pass
When it rains it pores time to move to higher ground
Journey seem longer and longer since I started so I found
Mountains have grown larger and harder is the climb
Bigger is the challenge but greater is the find

Chorus: Its Gone a be a lovely day
Come rain or shine Its Gone a be a lovely day
Its Gone a be a lovely day
Won’t let nothing stand in my way
It’s a lovely day
