Biography

As a young girl, Phyllis immediately recognized and answered the call to minister in song, and to lead God's people into a closer, more fulfilling fellowship with Him through music. She began fulfilling her singing destiny in church. As a teen, she began playing the piano and directing choirs for various churches. Her musical influences are such greats as Tremaine Hawkins, Shirley Caesar, Vickie Winans and Cece Winans (just to name a few).

During her college years, Phyllis was a member of the Georgia Southern University Gospel Choir, and in collaboration with five other college friends, Phyllis helped to found "Restored", a contemporary gospel ensemble that blessed university as well as community events.

For years, Phyllis' anointed voice and ability to lead others in joyful worship have made her a ministry guest for many churches and organizations throughout North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia and Florida. Apart from her solo ministry, she has had the privilege of singing with a number of gospel groups: The Gospel Crusaders (Bainbridge, Ga); Restored Ensemble (Statesboro, Ga); Chief Singers (Durham, NC); and Joy Ensemble (Durham, NC). Phyllis currently serves as the Director of Music for her home church, Beacon Light Baptist Church, in Durham, NC.

Phyllis' independent debut recording project, "He's the King", was released December 2002, and has already blessed many. This freshman release played a key role in Phyllis being able to perform at Madison Square Garden in 2003 for the NY Independent Film and Music Festival.

Phyllis shares, "My prayer is that all would experience and know the beauty...the joy...the peace...the blessed assurance that only Christ can give. I believe that God is calling His people to a higher place of praise, and I have accepted the call to help lead them there".

Lyrics

I Adore Him

Written By: Phyllis Gillespie

O I adore Him
the Lamb of God
I adore Him
He's wonderful
I adore Him
so glad that He's mine
O yes, I adore Him

He brightens my day
when the storm clouds rise
Shows me the way
so glad He's mine
sends down His love
from heaven above
O yes, I adore Him

O I adore Him
the Lamb of God
I adore Him
He's wonderful
I adore Him
so glad that He's mine
O yes, I adore Him

You Alone

Written By: Phyllis Gillespie

I come before You now;
In your presence I bow.
I lift my heart to You and You alone.
You're the lover of my soul.
It is You who makes me whole.
I lift my heart to You, and You alone

Your glory fills this place.
Your warmth is on my face.
I lift my heart to You, and You alone.
Come and fill this heart of mine with Yuor spirit so divine.
I lift my heart to You, and You alone.

For You alone deserve all honor. You alone deserve all praise. You alone are holy in all your ways. You alone deserve all honor. You alone deserve all praise. You alone, are holy in all Your ways.

I come before You now;
In your presence I bow.
I lift my heart to You and You alone.
You're the lover of my soul.
It is You who makes me whole.
I lift my heart to You, and You alone
I lift my heart to You, King of my life
I lift my heart to You, Lover of my soul
I lift my heart to You, my comforter and my friend
I lift my heart to You, You supply my every need
I lift my heart to You,
You are the Great I Am, the Great I Am
I lift my heart to You, oh Righteous One, oh Holy One
I lift my heart to You, and You alone

He's the King

Written By: Phyllis Gillespie

Looking back on when I was living in the world
I didn't know who Jesus was, and I didn't know He shed His blood.
Somebody said He died.
His love made me free.
Then one day He rose,
now I'm glad I know.

He's the King
He's the King
He's the King
O yes He is.
He's the King
He's the King
He's the King
O yes He is.

To Him I give all glory and praise
I lift Him up for all to see how wonderful He is to me
I give Him all my love
I give Him all my soul
I give Him every part of me
I let Him take control

He's the King
He's the King
He's the King
O yes He is.
He's the King
He's the King
He's the King
O yes He is.

King of my life I crown Him now. King of my life I crown Him now. King of my life I crown Him now.
To Him shall the glory be!

To Him I give all glory and praise
I lift Him up for all to see how wonderful He is to me
I give Him all my love
I give Him all my soul
I give Him every part of me
I let Him take control

He's the King
He's the King
He's the King
O yes He is.
He's the King
He's the King
He's the King
O yes He is.

King of my life I crown Him now. King of my life I crown Him now. King of my life I crown Him now.
To Him shall the glory be!
