BET’s ‘Sunday Best’ Winner: LeAndria Johnson’s First Single
In June 2010, Le’Andria Johnson was crowned “Sunday Best” winner, with over 2 million votes from network’s faithful viewer. Each week Johnson wowed viewers and captured the hearts of millions, including “Sunday Best’s” host Kirk Franklin and judges Kim Burrell, Donnie McClurkin, Yolanda Adams and Mary Mary. For the finale, she performed a medley of three songs, “I Love the Lord,” “He Was There,” and “In the Midst of It All.”
Johnson is a living testimony of faith. Johnson auditioned for the gospel competition just one day before she lost her home in foreclosure. Deciding to let nothing stand in her way, Johnson traveled to New Orleans and auditioned in flip flops and gym socks, and she was almost eliminated because she did not look the part, according to judge Erica Campbell [Mary Mary]. After her rendition of “This Is the Day the Lord Hath Made,” she was on her way to fulfilling her lifelong dream of a career in music.
Johnson is an accomplished songwriter, producer and praise and worship leader at her hometown church, HQ Ministries in Altamonte Springs, Fla. A self-taught musician, Johnson began singing at the age of 2. She continues her commitment to the music ministry of her hometown church.
