Tasha Cobbs-Leonard: ‘God’s Grace Gets the Credit’

Expects Healing of Broken Hearts During 'Revival Tour' in D.C.

Tasha Cobbs-Leonard, since beginning her solo music career in 2010, has continued to climb the charts, capture the attention of gospel music lovers and bring her unique style of praise and worship in her ministry to the masses.

Now, with the recent release of an all-live album, “Heart. Passion. Pursuit.: Live At Passion City Church,” the Grammy Award-winning artist has returned to the road – selling out arenas in Atlanta, New York, Charlotte and Baltimore. The CD covers songs from among her extensive catalogue with fan favorites that include: “I’m Getting Ready,” “Fill Me Up,” “Gracefully Broken” and much more.

On Thursday, Nov. 15, she’ll bring her Revival Tour to Warner Theatre in Northwest, lending her talents and love of God with hit songs that have quickly made her a staple within today’s contemporary gospel world.

“Grace,” released by Motown Gospel Feb. 2013, gained attention on two Billboard charts: the Billboard 200 at No. 61 and at No. 2 on the Top Gospel Albums charts. The singles “Break Every Chain” and “For Your Glory” also reached No. 1 on the Hot Gospel Songs charts. Thus, it came as no surprise when, at the 56th annual Grammy Awards in 2014, she walked away with Best Gospel/Contemporary Christian Music Performance and her first Grammy. In addition, she received top honors at the 2015 GMA Dove Awards: Gospel Artist of the Year.

Her career began in her hometown, Jesup, Georgia, under the tutelage of her late father, Bishop Fritz Cobbs. And it’s been a steady ascension ever since. She says without flinching, “God’s grace gets the credit.”
