Biography

Kristen Hope Justice is an Atlanta based singer, songwriter, musician
and entertainer. Her music transcends genre with her captivating lyrics and
catchy melodies. In 2013, Kristen completed her debut album, “Shape This Love”,
which won an Intel Superstars award for Best Pop Album, and in 2015 the title
track won an Akademia award for Best Country Ballad. 

“Kristen brings an exquisite
sensitivity to her music, creating an authentic sound that simultaneously
honors and breaks the traditional rules of songwriting. It is an approach that
is earning this artist much acclaim lately and has propelled her radio single
‘Shape This Love’ to the top of the charts. One critic recently went so far as
to comment: ‘The most striking aspects of Kristen Hope Justice's album are the
dreamy production, aesthetic and fervent vocality, together they perfectly
package the compositional ingenuity of the material in its inherent state.”
-Marquix TV


 


In addition to being an
accomplished songwriter, Kristen is also a top tier entertainer. Kristen has
performed in venues all around the country opening up for acts such as Vince
Gill and has entertained thousands of clients including Home Depot, Microsoft,
The American Heart Association, Gwinnet Medical Center, and many more.


Performing in high-energy
dance bands, original concert venues, jazz clubs, or church, her presence on
stage and off is warm, inviting and energetic.


“From the moment she stepped
on the stage, I knew she was a pro.” -Joey Sommerville, contemporary jazz
artist and producer.


2017 marked a shift in her
writing. Her brand new album, “Calling of the Divine” is a collection of songs
she has written during her tenure over the last six years as music director at
Unity of Kennesaw, a New-Thought, non-denominational church in metro Atlanta.
It’s contemporary Christian meets Spiritual. The songs reflect a positive,
prayerful, uplifting message of encouragement and positive affirmation that is
more spiritual than religious. It’s uplifting, it’s positive, “Posi”, praise
and worship music with a youthful pop appeal.


“Your performance is soul
stirring and your original songs are inspired. You held the souls, hearts and
minds of everyone in attendance in the embrace of your celestial voice. I know
your new album, “Calling of the Divine” will be a monumental success and must
have for all who love and enjoy powerful New Thought music. It was a wonderful
experience to have everyone inquire, “When can Kristen return? “ My reply as
often as her schedule allows” -Tony Crapolicchio, Founder & Pastor, Trinity
Center for Spiritual Living. 

In addition to live musical
performances Kristen also leads workshops incorporating sound healing with
crystal bowls, Tibetan bowls, tuning forks and toning.  Kristen is also certified as a Reiki
Master and offers private sessions. To inquire about booking Kristen or to find

Lyrics

Shape This LOVE

Written By: Kristen Hope Justice

Shape This Love
Take this Love and shape it into something that won’t break my heart, my heart
Cause I see where we’re headed and I know this only goes so far
So please don’t try, don’t look me in the eyes
Cause I don’t think I could put up a fight
And don’t ask why, we’ll just sacrifice
Cause I don’t want to say goodbye

Well, this heart of mine, it’s seen this kind before
And it’s taken this time to realize you just can’t walk through every door
So let me be your teacher this time
I’ve learned a lot of lessons in this little life of mine
You are a friend of mine and I want you in my life forever more
So take this Love and shape it into something that won’t break my heart

Please don’t go
But I can’t stay
We both know, it’s better off this way
So don’t get too close
But don’t go too far
Cause it’s the only way we’ll never be apart

Is baby if we take this love and shape it into something that won’t break my heart
Cause baby oh I love you and I don’t know how to stop
I’ll never stop
So maybe if we take this love and shape it into something that won’t break my heart

Forever Friend

Written By: Kristen Hope Justice

Forever Friend
Sometimes it seems I’ve lived a million lives
Each one just a bit differently through different eyes
So I know where you’re going, and I know where you’ve been
But the only thing I know for sure’s I want you to be my
Forever Friend

We’ve both loved and lost and learned to love again
We’ve felt the pain and found the love we thought we’d never find again
But of all of those lovers, you compare to no other
I want you as my lover, my companion, my forever friend

CHORUS:
You feel like home to me
There’s an elegant simplicity
When you look in my eyes I’m alive
I can feel your touch, I know you’re by my side
My heart opens wide

It feels so good to have you here with me
It’s a simple melody played out by a symphony
And I know every note of this score
I’ve sung this melody before
But this song has never had a sweeter end than with you
My Forever Friend

CHORUS 2:
You feel like home to me
There’s an elegant simplicity
When you look in my eyes , I’m alive
I can feel your touch, I want you by my side
My heart opens wide

CHORUS 1

You feel like home to me.

Don't Turn Your Head Away

Written By: Kristen Hope Justice

Everyday driving this way
Under the bridges and in the doorways
People just like you and me
People with respectability
Put in situations of impossibility

Don't turn your head to forget about your problems
Don't turn away so you'll never see their tears
Don't turn your head away to forget about tomorrow
Don't turn your head away its not going to disappear

Mother mother are you going to be alright
Or is it just a little too cold tonight
Does your baby enough to eat
Living out on these old streets tonight, tonight

Don't turn your head to forget about your problems
Don't turn away so you'll never see their tears
Don't turn your head away to forget about tomorrow
Don't turn your head away its not going to disappear

People are suffering dying crying as we live our lives
Ignoring what's not happening to ourselves
We need to prioritize

Baby girl you shouldn't have to cry anymore
And should never be afraid behind closed doors
I said Someone must see what's see what's happening
But closing their eyes cause they just can't believe that it's true
Someone could do that to you
But closing their eyes cause

Don't turn your head to forget about your sorrows
Don't turn away cause it's just a little too sad
Don't turn your head away to forget about tomorrow
Don't turn your head away its time that we lend a hand

Everyday I'm driving this way
