Worshipful...Uplifting...Refreshing! That is what Angela's Music is all about.

Biography

For Angela Bryant-Brown, praise and worship is more than a style of music. It is what she does in response to God’s presence in her life. Her desire is that the music she shares will move others to recognize the awesomeness of God and praise Him in their own lives.

Her passion for worship has led her to become a vibrant praise leader and prolific songwriter. Her original songs, such as “Give God the Praise” and “If We Obey,” have ushered many congregations into the presence of God and will do the same for listeners of her debut CD, From You.

From You is a collection of musical testimonies from Angela’s heart, which is a heart that longs to please God through worship. When ministering, her dynamic energy in song and word invites every person in the audience to join her in praise. The release of From You is a response to her audiences’ wish to experience her ministry whenever they need to be uplifted through song.

A native of Syracuse, New York, Angela recognized her calling early. When she was just 7 years old, she began singing in church, school and anywhere the Lord presented an opportunity. As she grew, she never compromised that call.

Since that time, she has become active in ministry for various kinds of worship services, retreats, weddings and solo concerts. She has performed for the Department of Agriculture and with recording groups such as the internationally known choirs The Aeolians and Dynamic Praise. She has opened for the gospel group Witness, shared the stage with Christian recording artists Byron Cage and John Stoddart, and appeared on the 3ABN “Today” talk show.

In the year 2002, God expanded Angela’s ministry to include inspirational-motivational speaking for women and youth. She develops and facilitates teen workshops for young ladies on subjects such as Dating, Discovering You, and Becoming a Virtuous Woman.

In 2006, Angela founded the non-profit organization, “By Your Side Ministries”, which provides support to single-parents and at-risk youth.

Angela, her husband, Earl A. Brown, and their two children, Roderick and Sydni are active members at the Community Praise Center Church located in Alexandria, Virginia.

Angela considers herself a living testimony of what God can do for those who love and trust Him with their whole heart. Because of His abundant grace and unconditional love, it is her mission to share the goodness of God with everyone He places in her path. When asked what her message is, Angela says, “You will not experience a genuine sense of spiritual fulfillment until you realize and live within God’s will for your life.” As she says in one of her songs:

“For you were born with a purpose, perfectly designed, when God breathed life into you, He had a purpose in mind!”

Because of Who You Are

Written By: Angela Bryant-Brown

Verse:
Lord I lift You up
In You I put my trust
In You my soul’s at rest
Because of who You Are

Verse:
There’s no other name
That I wish to proclaim
For I am not ashamed
Because of who You are

Hook:
You are the Son in my day
And the moon by night
When I can’t see my way
You are my guiding light
You cause the waters to be still
They obey Your will
And I offer up to You my highest praise
Because of who You are

From You

Written By: Angela Bryant-Brown

Verse:
Flowers that bloom
Soft winds blow, birds that sing
Soft white snow, the golden rays
And mistletoe, they all come from you

Verse:
Inspiring words, a gentle touch
Heart warming smiles, that means so much
Removing pain from hurting cuts
They all come from

Chorus:
From You
Comes the birth of a new Spring
From You
Comes the song that the bluebird sings
And when the storm clouds gather
And the rain begins to fall
There is a peace that keeps me calm
And it comes from You.

Verse:
Your cleansing power, forgiving grace
The cross you bore, in my place
The gift of life, You gave to me
They all come from You
Now I know what true love means
I know joy knowing You brings
I dedicate these words I sing
For they all come from You

Chorus:
From You
Comes the birth of a new Spring
From You
Comes the song that the bluebird sings
And when the storm clouds gather
And the rain begins to fall
There is a peace that keeps me calm
And it comes from You.

Bridge:
Where would I go
Where would I be
If you hadn’t gave Your life for me
I can only help but to think the worst
But with Your blood
You broke sins’ curse
And from You…(Chorus)

Thank You 4 Loving Me

Written By: Angela Bryant-Brown


INTRO:
Thank You 4 loving me…

Lord because of who You are.
My Redeemer, My Savior
My Bright and Morning Star
I give you all my praise
For you are Holy and Righteous
In all of Your ways.

VERSE:
In your word you tell me that uh
I was created in the image of the I AM
That I was born with a purpose
A destiny
That I’m a part of Your wonderful,
Magnificent Master plan.
And if I obey Your word
If I obey Your commands
You said salvation is mine
It’s in Your hands.
And the wonderful thing about it
It’s completely free.
And heaven has smiled down me.
Thank you for loving me.

Chorus ad-libs:

When nobody else would

When I said I couldn’t
You said that I could

Thank you Lord

Way back on Calvary

Where You set my soul free

VERSE:
Lord you stilled the storm within my soul
You gave me peace
That made my mind body and heart whole
And you gave me a purpose,
A reason for this life
You’ve inspired me with words and music
with truth and light
Lord you are the melody you are the harmony in my song
You are the reason I live on
The reason I am strong
And it’s because of your grace
Ummm...that sweet amazing grace
That I now have a new stride in this race
For that I thank you.

CHORUS:
(sing)
Thank you for loving me oh yes!
Oh thank you Jesus
Little ole’ me
Thank you for loving me
You see
(spoken)
I remember
For God so loved the world
That He gave his only
His one and only Son
Oh what a sweet, sweet love it is.
Now I know…now I truly know
What it means…
to be loved.
Could not love myself.

Born With A Purpose

Written By: Angela Bryant-Brown

Verse:
When I look into the mirror,
what is it I see?
Someone beautiful, unique,
and that someone is me.
From the crown of my head,
to the soles of my feet
God thoughtfully planned and designed
a purpose just for me.

Chorus:
I was born with a purpose,
perfectly designed
When God breathed life into me,
He had a purpose in Mind
And though, I do not know my future,
or what tomorrow brings
One thing I am sure of,
I am a servant of the King.

Verse:
Do you worry about tomorrow
what the future holds.
Do you find yourself still searching
for that purpose for that goal.
Trust not in your understanding,
God has a plan for you.
In all your ways acknowledge Him,
and you’ll come to know it too.

Chorus:
You were born with a purpose,
perfectly designed
When God breathed life into you,
He had a purpose in Mind.
And though, you do not know your future,
or what tomorrow brings.
One thing to be sure of,
you are a servant of the King.

Bridge:
Maybe, I’ll be a missionary.
Or maybe a singer of His praise.
Or just a simple servant
loving my neighbor
Whatever it may be
one thing I know…yes, I know
I was born…

Tell Me

Written By: Angela Bryant-Brown

Verse:
Tell me how a bumblebee flies with wings so tiny and thin.
Tell me how a tiny ant carries its weight times ten
Then tell me how a humming bird hums while suspended in the air
Then tell me why man can’t conceive that God is really there.

Tell me how the April showers fall fresh from the sky
Then tell me how the Springtime flowers blossom right before the eye.
Then tell me how in all its splendor the rainbow stretches far
Then tell me why man won’t believe the Creator of the stars

Bridge:
Tell me who was He that created man and breathed His life within
Tell me who was He that gave His Life to free mankind from sin
Then tell me who was He that spoke the words and calmed the angry sea
If not God then tell me who could it be?

(music interlude)

Tell me who was He that spoke the words and calmed the angry sea
If not God then tell me who could it be?

Verse:
Tell me what makes thunder roar and lightning streak across the sky
Tell me how the seasons change without a cue from you or I
Then tell me how the massive waters stay within their boundaries.
then tell me why man won’t receive the One who died for you and me

…..Tell me why

Heaven Has Smiled On Me

Written By: Angela Bryant-Brown

Verse:
I remember when we first met,
It was a moment I can’t forget,
In an instant I felt free
You were the wind beneath my wings

And I can not forget
the moment when our eyes met
not only did you see the outer me
you looked into my soul and set me free
And I knew my life would never be the same

Chorus:
I am lucky. No I am blessed
When God gave me you
He gave the very best
And when I look into your eyes
My heart is filled with joy and pride
Because heaven has smiled on me.

Verse:
Here we stand today
Ready to give ourselves away
Seems like only yesterday
Heaven sent you my way

Through the good the bad
We won’t despair for what we have
Is more then what the human eye can see
We’re not alone we have the Trinity
And I know our lives will never be the same

Chorus:
We are lucky, no we are blessed!
For when God gave us love
He gave the very best!
And when I look into your eyes
My heart is filled with joy and pride
Because heaven has smiled on me.

Bridge:
Father how can I ever thank you
All of heaven has smiled on me
For You sent to me the one that I adore
How could I want for more
All I pray is that my love will be,
as strong and pure as Your love for me

Jesus Is the Reason

Written By: Angela Bryant-Brown

JESUS IS THE REASON FOR THE SEASON
I’LL SAY IT AGAIN…
JESUS IS THE REASON FOR THE SEASON.

NOT THAT CHRISTMAS TREES AREN’T A DELIGHT
AND THAT I DON’T ENJOY THE SNOW SO WHITE
OR THAT THE SOUNDS OF JOY DON’T TICKLE MY EAR
AND EVERYONE SEEMS TO BE OF GOOD CHEER
STILL I KNOW
JESUS IS THE REASON FOR THE SEASON
I’LL SAY IT AGAIN...
JESUS IS THE REASON FOR THE SEASON.

WHILE FAMILY AND FRIENDS GATHER CLOSE
SINGING HOLIDAY SONGS WHILE THE TURKEY ROASTS
SO AS YOU WRAP YOUR GIFTS
TOP THEM WITH PRETTY RIBBONS AND BOWS
AS YOU SIGN YOUR GREETING CARDS
FILLED WITH HOLIDAY CHEER, WISHES AND SO
JUST REMEMBER JESUS IS THE REASON FOR THE SEASON.
LET ME SAY IT AGAIN
JESUS IS THE REASON FOR THE SEASON

IT WAS A SILENT NIGHT
A HOLY NIGHT
WHEN THE SKY LIT BRIGHT
BY ANGELS WHO SANG WITH DELIGHT
THAT EARLY THAT MOURN
THE SAVIOUR, MESSIAH, REDEEMER WAS BORN
AND THAT IS WHY
JESUS IS THE REASON FOR THE SEASON
