Lynda Tait Randle was born in the inner city of Washington, D.C.
She is the middle child of seven and feels blessed to have had the privilege of being raised in a Christian home.
Lynda has been a favorite on the Gaither Homecoming Series and Videos for over a decade, and her two most requested songs, “God On The Mountain” and “I’m Free” have garnered digital streams in the tens of millions. A Multi Dove and Grammy nominee, Her Dove Award for the project, “A Tribute To Mahalia Jackson”, helped introduce her powerful and passionate alto voice to the world. One remarkable element to Lynda and her music, is her ability to quickly build rapport with audiences and draw them together regardless of age, race, or ethnicity.
In February, she is set to release Her new recording Pilgrim Journey – a gripping, gospel album that showcases emotion-filled vocals and rich, honest lyrics. The album features guest vocals by Kimberly Schlapman of Little Big Town and Critically acclaimed Artist, Tommy Sims, with stirring production by two-time GRAMMY® nominated and 13-time DOVE Award-winning singer-songwriter Cindy Morgan.
Pilgrim Journey is an uplifting, spiritual voyage that invites listeners to navigate their inherent yearning for hope and inspires perseverance as they anticipate the eternal promise of freedom. The recording highlights Randle’s signature Gospel stylings while capturing an epic, soulful side of her that is reminiscent of artists who have inspired her, including Mavis Staples, Nina Simone, Sister Rosetta Tharpe, The Blind Boys of Alabama and more.
“Pilgrim Journey is such a special project to me because it is a bridge between my roots and my present–a musical coming home of sorts,” stated Randle. “It is an album of lament, healing, forgiveness, love…a journey to unity; and bringing people together is my passion. Getting to work and produce with my musical “she-ro” Cindy Morgan and the amazing musicians and talent she brought to the project were more than a dream come true!”
