Tasha Layton: The Presence of Joy


 Lovely and talented, my guest for today's episode is Tasha Layton. I can still remember watching Tasha’s audition for American Idol, well before I ever met her. There was something special about her. Her smile, her bubbly demeanor, the way she bounced around as she talked to the judges, the soul and fervor behind her powerful voice. It was the joy.

Tasha is a pastor, worship leader, and professional singer who moved to Nashville from Los Angeles after 10 years of working simultaneously within the church and music industry. She has been a voice for various productions such as Disney, Nickelodeon, and Cirque de Soleil, and toured as a backing vocalist for Katy Perry for over 4 years. When she’s not teaching voice and theology at Trivecca University, she’s coaching others or recording her new album with her husband, fellow musician Keith Smith.

Check out today's episode, "The Presence of Joy” and listen as Tasha shares how she found and grew her love of music, ministry, and more, and that “sometimes we just have to remind ourselves to live in the presence of joy.”
