The journey to Yancy Ministries’ extensive reach started with the simple desire to explore singer/songwriter terrain under the clever banner of “music that makes Jesus loud,” which like many newcomers, began with many songwriting trips to Nashville. From the get go, Yancy caught the ear of audiences and industry alike, first following in Jars Of Clay’s footsteps to win the Gospel Music Association’s International Spotlight Competition, then scoring the “Best Artist” slot in a WordRecords.com competition and being named one of 7ball Magazine’s “Best 25 Independent Artists.”Besides recording and personally producing a steady string of her own artist-centric, “Jesus, Glitter and Rock-N-Roll”-inspired albums, she quickly became one of Music City’s most sought after songwriters, penning the chart-topping/ASCAP Award winning song “I Don’t Want To Go” for Avalon’s Grammy and Dove nominated Oxygen album, fellow contemporary pop favorite “Something Beautiful” for Jaci Velasquez, alongside numerous co-writes and recordings with now legendary Third Day front man Mac Powell. Along the way, she’s also shared the stage with Michael W. Smith, Newsboys, and Plumb, been a featured guest many times over on TV shows such as LESEA Broadcasting’s “The Harvest Show”, and took home About.com’s Readers’ Choice Award for “Best Christian Indie Solo Artist.”
Music for Families and Kid's Ministries
In addition to Yancy’s artist side blossoming at such a rapid rate, she also embraced a calling and opportunity to start leading worship and writing songs for children at Church on the Move in Tulsa, Oklahoma. While she never abandoned recording adult studio albums, her songwriting muse soon shifted towards a kid-friendly twist birthed merely out of a void within her congregation, particularly when it came to providing praise tunes to accompany their pre-school program. Tangibly speaking, these recordings became known as the Yancy spearheaded Little Praise Party series, which combines audio CDs with DVDs filled with cartoon characters to help visualize the words and stories portrayed within the songs. As a mom herself, Yancy definitely knows what it takes to keep kids simultaneously entertained and uplifted, plus she always makes sure to score a stamp of approval from her very own family prior to releasing these exciting projects publicly.
