MUSIC: Loretta Merritt – No One Greater | @Leadingladyl

Brooklyn native and youngest of five children Loretta Merritt drops her latest single “No One Greater” which is from her forthcoming EP.

The word is passion. And for Loretta Merritt, it all starts with the voice. She has always enjoyed singing ever since her days coming up in the church where she was a featured talent in the children, youth, and young adult choirs.

Loretta’s passion for music was ignited when she was first exposed to gospel legends such as the Clark Sisters, Cece Winans, and Yolanda Adams. The gifted vocalist’s strong foundation was set.

For her, it was always bigger than just music. It was and remains Loretta’s life.

She was blessed and excited to utilize her singing and acting abilities, in 1985, in an Off-Broadway play, “I’m Reaching for the Stars” in New York City, where she had a leading role. Excerpts of the play were later aired on the Manhattan Cable Television.

She was later inspired to sing and record with the renowned gospel choir James Hall and Worship and Praise and went on tour with the choir.

“Singing with the choir was one of the greatest experiences in my life,” says Loretta.

“The power in our voices exuded greatness!” She adds.

Loretta was thrilled to have the opportunity to develop her vocal talents further at the Juilliard Adult Evening Program in 2013. She studied the basics of vocal performance and mastered a wide variety of music from the layered complexities of classical to the bombastic majesty of Broadway.

Loretta was Nominated for the Gospel Music Choice Awards 2019 for New Artist of the Year.

For Loretta singing is not only a passion but also where she finds joy. Making an impact in people’s lives; encouraging others, uplifting, and ushering them into the presence of the Lord is her true calling.

Loretta’s singing has touched audiences and they, in turn, have impacted her by just knowing that they were blessed.

Loretta humbly states,

“ I was touched when a young teen girl came to me crying because my singing resonated with her, as she was going through challenges. It is times like this when I know I am living in my purpose and my singing is not in vain. ”

Her inspiration in writing songs comes from life experiences of herself and others. As she is creating, putting pen to paper, she believes when the lyrics are heartfelt and moves her, it will move others.

“ Music is a language of its own; It can reach people where other avenues cannot, which is why it is so powerful, ” explains Loretta.

Loretta believes that through God we can do all things and is forever grateful to serve Him through this ministry.

 ” God has entrusted me to share my gift to the world, which He has given me,”

Loretta declares.

“No One Greater” is available on iTunes Spotify and all digital outlets.
