The best kept secret in music

Press


Dear Christian Friends,
It is my joy to recommend to you the Christian music artistry of vocalist Jennifer Ebanks for possible future concerts or performances for your congregation.

Sister Ebanks has been singing frequently over the years of her young life and has developed into an accomplished young adult who prepares thoroughly for all her music presentations.

Her voice is vibrant and full of positive energy and feeling as she interprets well her vital messages to her listeners. Every song is prayerfully chosen and shared.

We at North Houston have enjoyed so very much her music messages both in worship and in concert and desire to see her talent spread more widely helping lead persons to a beautiful focus on Jesus Christ... in a day of much turmoil, thus encouraging and lifting their spirits.
Sincerely in Him,
John H. McFarlane, Pastor - Pastor John McFarlane


You will love the sweet, welcoming soprano of this Texan songbird. but this may not be the first time you have been introduced to her ministry. You may have heard and seen her on 3ABN, or at a campmeeting before Doug Bachelor spoke, or at a Ron Halverson evangelistic meeting.
Jennifer's solo album is titled My Praise, and includes eleven cuts, including "Alabaster Box," "Bloodstained Pages,", "He'll Do it Again," "People Need the Lord," and this reviewer's favorite item: "How Beautiful." Her voice just captures the essence of the song.

Spirit Radio: Where are you from originally and what sort of things were you into growing up?
JE.I was born and raised in Houston, TX. I have always loved to sing. From as early as I can remember, if there was music playing, I would sing to it.
SR: How did you get started in the music business?
JE.I first began singing when I was about ten years old. And from there I just kept going. I mean, there have been ups and downs and times I didn't do anything.But I've usually been fairly busy.
SR: How long have you been doing what you are doing now?
JE.I've been taking it very seriously for about a year now. But I've been performing for approximately 18 years.
SR: Who were some of your musical influences?
JE.One of my big influences was Sandi Patty. But I have a varied range of influences. Like Whitney Houston, Celine Dion, Dallas Holm, and so many more I just can't name them all.
SR: For those who may not have heard you before, how would you describe your music?
JE.That's a really tough question. To me it is really hard to pin myself down to one thing. But if I had to say, I'd say maybe a cross between Sandi Patty and Whitney Houston.
SR: What would you say that most of your songs are about?
JE.Jesus Christ. And His love and Mercy. Definately
SR: What are your feelings toward Christians listening to secular music?
JE.I think that if a song touches your heart and makes you think of God, then whether it is Christian or secular, it doesn't matter.
SR: How has God been working in your life lately? What things has He been teaching you?
JE.There is one thing that He is always working on me with and that is Patience. I know He won't give up until I've learned it. I think He's brought me quite a ways. I know that everything happens in God's time, not mine. He is in control always.
SR: What is the most important thing that you would like people to take away from your music or live shows?
JE.That Jesus loves you no matter what you have done. And He's right there waiting to forgive and welcome you into His arms.
SR: What is your favorite bible verse?
JE.Philipians 4:13 I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
SR: What things do you like to do in your spare time?
JE.I love to spend time with my husband and two wonderful children.
SR: Who is your favorite Christian artist?
Gee, I've got so many, but to name a few, Bebo Norman, Chris Rice, Natalie Grant, Avalon.......

Bio

"Music is something that has always been a part of my life. From as early as I can remember there was music in my house. When I was small I can remember Friday night worship with my dad and older brother playing their guitars and the whole family singing songs together. Those are some of my fondest memories."

Jennifer began singing at the age of ten. A shy child by nature, she felt a deep yearning to sing for God. Barely able to see over the podium, Jennifer bravely sang her first solo in public. And from that moment began a life of music ministry.

People took notice of the young girl who had a voice mature beyond her years. And she was soon being asked to come and sing for different churches across Texas.

By the age of 14, Jennifer had already sung at numerous camp meetings, youth rallies, evangelistic meetings, and many other events. Many of these had over 5000 people in attendance.

Though Jennifer dreamed of one day becoming a professional singer. God was saying, "Wait." "I know that God still had some work to do in me. And He wanted to mature me so that I would be better equipped to minister for Him."

Jennifer married at a young age and put her singing career on hold and moved to Jacksonville, Florida, where her husband was stationed in the Navy. While there, she was involved in the music at the church she attended. And was given the opportunity to sing for some evangelistic meetings being held by Ron Halvorson Sr., a well known evangelist. The crowd responded to her rendition of "In the Name of the Lord" with a standing ovation.

After their stint in Florida, Jennifer and her Husband and then 3month old daughter, Alison moved back to Texas, where she began doing concerts with her dad, Harry Adams, who was a pastor in the Houston area. She and her dad made an album together titled, "I Sing Because" in 1998.

But circumstances would once again put things on hold for a while...
A couple of years later, Jennifer welcomed the birth of her second child, Sean. The duties of being a wife and mother to two small children took priority. And she once again put her singing career on hold.

In 2001 Jennifer was asked to sing for a Houston area camp meeting which featured Doug Batchelor, a well known TV evangelist. This was recorded and later aired on 3ABN.

Soon after, Jennifer again, felt the strong call from God to use the talents that he had given her, for His work. She began using her voice again for the Lord.

But again things were going to have to be put on hold...

In 2003 Jennifer and her family received the news that her beloved mother was diagnosed with cancer that had metastasized to the bone. This was a huge blow.
Jennifer was hopeful and prayed unceasingly for the healing of her precious mother, her best friend. But God in His infinite wisdom , does not see things how we do, and allowed her mother to fall asleep on December 21, 2003.
To say the least she was devastated. And was left with so many questions. " At that time I became angry with God. I didn't speak to Him for months. I couldn't understand how He could just let her die like that. I prayed so hard. I believed with all my heart that He would heal her."
"But God is so patient with all of us and He soon let me realize that His ways are not my ways. And that I was not grieving for my mother, but for myself, and my loss. I know that my mom was right with God and I will see her again on that glorious day when Christ returns."

So with a new found understanding of God's love and mercy, Jennifer once again committed herself to His service.

In 2004, Jennifer was able to record her first solo CD project which featured many of the songs that have brought a blessing to her life.
With the release of this album God has opened up so many doors for her ministry.
" I pray that God will use me and use this album to touch the hearts of people that are hurting. I feel that if I can just touch one soul through my music then I will have done what God has called me to do."

Most recently, Jennifer has re-released a six song CD taken from a project she recorded in 1998.

Jennifer will continue to minister in song and word wherever the Lord chooses to send.
