Mashondi Payne


Mashondi Payne brings forth anointed and soulful sounds that touch the hearts of all generations. Her lyrics soothe the broken hearted and gives the inspiration to continue. Ignited by her passion for Christ her mission through this ministry is to see lives transformed.


At a very early age music was Mashondi’s passion. It was clear then, as it is now, that her voice is touched by God. When she was beginning to develop her gift, she dabbled in secular music with the R&B trio, Zoe. The group did have a great buzz. Although the group was prospected by major labels and they played a number of gigs, it all faded due to lack of proper management. Following the separation of the group, Mashondi turned her ear permanently towards God in 2001 and changed her life to be in tune with His divine will. She had been called by God to enter into the battle and long journey of winning lost souls through the Ministry of song.

In 1998, she sang in the National Black Heritage Competition, in which she was one of the top finalists. In 2003, she entered the INSP Christian Artist Talent Search, where she fell short by one point of moving forward to the finals. Her drive to keep fighting was in the knowing that God had already worked out her destination with the finest details.

Mashondi has been invited to sing at numerous churches, concerts, and weddings around her city. She has also collaborated with and performed background vocals for local artists in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.

Mashondi has completed her first album; titled "LONG JOURNEY" that was completed August 25, 2007. She co-produced the song “You’re A Woman Justified by Faith” written by First Lady Tasha Stafford of Fellowship Baptist Church of Allen.

She is married to her wonderful husband Toby Payne and has two beautiful children Amaya, and Sean.
