By Melissa Greene
In this episode you'll hear a sermon about Hell, by Melissa Greene from Gracepointe Church in Nashville, Tennessee.
Melissa has a deeply rooted history with music, singing, and performing (even starting at age 2 with a familial audience and her hairbrush serving as a microphone). After singing soprano with the gospel music group Truth, Melissa was invited to become a part of the critically acclaimed, Grammy nominated group, Avalon. Melissa was honored with the other members of the group to have won the 2002 American Music Award for Favorite Artist in Contemporary Inspirational Music. She spent almost seven years in Avalon belting out the lead to songs like “Everything to Me” which won the Dove Award for Inspirational Recorded Song of the year in 2004. She has traveled the world singing in places like China, Africa, Hong Kong, Scotland, the Philippines, and Nicaragua. In her career as an artist, Melissa has also written and recorded 2 solo albums. Her album Next Step, which was released in 2009, was a culmination of songs and lyrics birthed throughout a season of wrestling over the loss of her 32-year-old brother-in-law to cancer. She is now working on a new project of both songs and videos that capture where she is on her journey now. This project will be released in the fall of 2012.
With visionary talent, Melissa is now further using her passions to continually grow and challenge herself and those around her in her current position as the full-time Pastor of Worship and Arts at GracePointe Church.
