BandPopSinger/Songwriter

My name is Rejoice because that's what I do. Straight down to earth rooted in my foundation. The music I write allows the listener to feel what I'm saying, to be able to relate to the message. To understand what I'm feeling. It encourages, lifts them up and give them the desire to keep going.

Biography

My biography is pretty much my elevator pitch. My influences are Yolonda Adams, Donnie Mc Clurkin, Kirk Franklin, Mary J. Blige, Beyonce, Janet Jackson...

Lyrics

forgive me lord

Written By: Shontelle Files

FORGIVE ME LORD
LD
HERE I AM LORD
STANDING IN YOUR PRESENCE
HOPING THAT YOU’LL
FIND A WAY
TO SMILE UPON ME
TO HAVE MERCY ON ME
AND GRANT ME FAVOR

SEE I KNOW I’VE DONE WRONG
I DIDN’T MEAN TO HURT YOU LORD
NEVER MEANT TO LET YOU DOWN
WHEN YOU TURNED MY LIFE AROUND
SO I’M COMING TO YOU
WONDERING COULD YOU
FORGIVE ME

CH
FORGIVE ME LORD
I DIDN’T MEAN TO HURT YOU LORD
NEVER MEANT TO LET YOU DOWN
WHEN YOU TURNED MY LIFE AROUND
SO I’M COMING TO YOU
WONDERING COULD YOU
CH
FORGIVE ME LORD
I DIDN’T MEAN TO HURT YOU LORD
NEVER MEANT TO LET YOU DOWN
WHEN YOU TURNED MY LIFE AROUND
SO I’M COMING TO YOU
WONDERING COULD YOU
FORGIVE ME

BRIDGE
I NEVER KNEW
WHAT IT MEANT TO YOU
TO HAVE ME WALKING IN YOUR LIGHT
THROUGH THE DARKEST OF NIGHT
YOU WEATHERED THE STORM
YOU HELD ON TO ME
YOU STAYED STRONG FOR ME
YOU WERE THERE FOR ME

Hiding the Hurt

Written By: Shontelle "rejoice" Files

HIDING THE HURT

HIDING THE HURT IS WHAT WE LIKE TO DO
HIDING THE HURT IS ABOUT ME AND YOU
IT’S WHAT WE GO THROUGH
AND HOW YOU BRING US OUT
HIDING THE HURT
IS WHAT THIS SONGS ABOUT

WE GO THROUGH MUCH PAIN
SOME MISERY AND SOME STRIFE
WE FEEL LIKE GIVING UP
AND FEEL LIKE ENDING THIS LIFE
WE PUT ON OUR MASK
WITH OUR FAKE SMILE
WE SAY WE’RE DOIN GOOD
WHEN KNOW OUR TEARS ARE STARTING TO PILE

DON’T HIDE IT
CRY IT OUT
LET IT GO
RELEASE IT (repeat)

KNOW ONE UNDERSTANDS
JUST WHAT YOU’RE GOING THROUGH
NO SHOULDER TO CRY ON
NO ONE TO TALK TO
NO ONE CAN FEEL WHAT YOU FEEL
NO ONE KNOWS YOU HURT DEEP INSIDE
SO WHY EVEN BOTHER
JUST GO ON AND HIDE

CAUSE YOU KNOW
YOU PRAYED ALL YOU COULD
AND YOU SAY
YOU’VE DONE ALL YOU SHOULD
ALL EXCEPT FOR CALL ON
THE NAME OF THE LORD
CAUSE YOU THAT HE HAS BEEN GOOD.

CH

BRG
SO I ASK YOU WHY
OH WHY
DO YOU HAVE TO HIDE
FROM HIS LOVE
I TELL YOU CRY IT OUT
LET IT GO AND LOOK ABOVE
ITS YOU HE’S THINKING OF

Live Without You

Written By: Shontelle "rejoice" Files

LIVE WITHOUT YOU

DID YOU KNOW
WHEN WE FIRST WENT OUT
I FELL IN LOVE WITH YOU
DID YOU KNOW
I COULDN’T WAIT TO SAY I DO
BUT DID KNOW
THAT THAT WOULD ALL SOON
COME TO AN END
YOU COULDN’T HAVE KNOWN
YOU WOULDN’T HAVE KNOWN

CAUSE I WAS GOOD
I TREATED YOU JUST LIKE
A GOOD WOMAN SHOULD
I FULFILLED YOUR NEEDS
ANYTHING TO HELP THIS
RELATIONSHIP SUCCEED
I BECAME YOUR WIFE, ENDURED
YOUR STRESS AND ALL OF YOUR STRIFE
I NEED TO LET GO
BUT DIDN’T KNOW HOW TO LET GO

CH

TELL ME HOW AM I SUPPOSE TO LIVE
WITHOUT YOU
TELL ME HOW AM I SUPPOSE TO LIVE
WITHOUT THE LOVE YOU PROMISED TO GIVE
TELL ME HOW AM I SUPPOSE TO LIVE
WITHOUT YOU
NEXT TO ME, ETERNALLY

THERE ARE TIMES
WHEN OUR CLOSENESS SEEMS SO FAR
AND THERE ARE TIMES
WHEN REACHING FOR YOU IS LIKE
REACHING FOR THE STARS
AND THERE ARE TIMES
TIMES WHEN I JUST DON’T
KNOW WHAT TO DO
SO I JUST CRY, I JUST CRY

AND WHERE WERE YOU
TO WIPE THE TEARS AWAY
WHERE WERE YOU
TO HOLD ME AND SAY IT WILL BE O.K.
AND WHERE WERE YOU
JUST TO HELP ME TO GET THROUGH
YOU DIDN’T EVEN TRY
YOU JUST DIDN’T TRY

CH

SO AFTER ALL
AFTER ALL IT IS SAID
AND IT IS DONE
I CRY NO MORE
BECAUSE I HAVE NOW FOUND SOMEONE
WHO FULFILLS MY NEEDS
WHO LOVES ME AND WHO
TAKES GOOD CARE OF ME
SO FAREWELL
YOU NOW HAVE TO
LIVE WITHOUT ME

Discography

I just started entering contest and putting my songs out there. I'm primarily a songwriter looking for artist who need lyrics. I haven't had anyone pick up my songs yet, but I know that it will happen soon.

Set List

I don't have one.
