Vashawn Mitchell Biography
Review The Artist (29)
VaShawn Mitchell was born and raised in Chicago, IL. The city known as the birthplace of Gospel music quickly made its imprint on him. When he was barely a teenager, VaShawn became the assistant music director of St. Mark Baptist Church, working closely with nationally renowned choir leader Lonnie Hunter.
For nearly a decade he served as Minister of Music at Bishop Larry D. Trotter’s Sweet Holy Spirit Church, setting the musical tone both within the church walls and on the ministry’s top-selling recording projects. The youngest Minister of Music in that church’s history, he successfully merged the contemporary themes he composed with the traditional choir vibe that marked the church’s worship services.
Throughout the years, VaShawn’s artistic vision has grown, shaping him into a mature worship leader and a recognized Gospel songwriter. His songs have been recorded by some of Gospel’s most celebrated artists, including Smokie Norful (“Just Can’t Stop”), Vanessa Bell Armstrong (“Help”), and Bishop Paul Morton (“Cry Your Last Tear”).
It is now his role as a music minister that brings him the greatest fulfillment. “I am most passionate about my church ministry,” he shares. “As ministers of music we birth new worshippers and new praisers on a weekly basis. A lot of that is not necessarily singing, but ministering the music that is being sung. “
His fervor for worship and praise can be felt throughout Triumphant; from the enthusiastic high praise opener and the powerful title track, to the deeply personal choir ballad “Nobody Greater” and the prophetic hymn “Be Fruitful.” More than a collection of hits, the project stands as a fully developed theme.
“Most of the time when I record, I conceptualize the project as a total piece,” VaShawn reveals. “With this album God gave me the concept and I started thinking about why we are triumphant people.”
Every song on the project is a reflection of that revelation, including the show-stopping, instant classic “His Blood Still Works,” which features the distinctive sound of former Witness lead vocalist Lisa Page Brooks. “Over the last season, as people have been struggling financially, it seems we’ve been losing our faith. Our faith was misplaced in resources and not in the Source,” says VaShawn. “I wanted to remind people that the blood never stopped working. It enables us to live above what we see.”
With a passion for worship, the heart of an encourager and the story of an overcomer, VaShawn Mitchell is truly an artist for this age.

'Nobody greater' is one of my favorite tracks and when I first heard it, I just felt like exploding, and I did--I exploded in worship. I now know that you (VaShawn) are called for this ministry and I'l continue to buy and listen to your music. #TO_GOD_BE_THE_GLORY

Thank God for you being a real worshipper. I heard " Nobody Greater and after that I had to hear every song God gave you. I first heard "Turning Around for Me" on Sunday's Best and it ministers to me every time I hear it. The title of the latest album speaks volumes, you were absolutely Created4this! May God continue to bless and lead you.

uplifting | Reviewer: archer | 11/10/13
vashawn's music is very uplifting.when im feeling down and want to give up,i just listen to his music,that gives the strenght i need to go on knowing that GOD is still in control of my life.My favourite song is TURNING AROUND FOR ME.The message in that song helps me remember that when trials come my way,or when all odds against me it will only be for awhile,then will step in and fix it.It reminds of the scripture in the bible that say"weeping may endure for a night but joy cometh in the morning"praise GOD.Just keep ministering unto the world through your songs,you have done that to me.MAY GOD CONTINUDE TO SHOWER HIS BLESSINGS ON U ALWAYS.
