Lashell Griffin

The winner of Oprah Winfrey's first Pop Star Challenge -- Winfrey's response to the youth-driven feel of shows like Star Search and American Idol -- was 36-year-old LaShell Griffin, a stay-at-home mother of five from Detroit, MI. Griffin's vocal style, which blends gospel and R&B influences, and her down-to-earth charisma on performances of songs like "One Moment in Time" and "The Greatest Love of All" helped Griffin win the competition's grand prize: a contract with EMI Records. She began singing in her church's choir when she was 13, and soon became one of the choir's leading soloists. As an adult, her children and her marriage to her husband Lee (also a singer) were her main priorities, but Griffin continued to sing with the choir and performed at weddings as much as her schedule allowed. When she was at home recovering from a broken foot in November 2003, Griffin first heard about Oprah's Pop Star Challenge; she and Lee sent in a tape of her version of "Amazing Grace," and a few weeks later, they learned she was on the show. The contest attracted 15,000 hopefuls, but Griffin made it through the semifinals and finals to become Oprah's Pop Star early in 2004. That summer, Griffin released her debut album, Free, a mix of contemporary gospel and R&B. ~ Heather Phares, Rovi

Very beautiful song have to sing this with the choir at my church
Simply awesome!
Had no idea this singer came off of Oprah, this woman sounds very good. Oprah needs to promote her more, she's what real talent is about.
First time hearing her. She sounds amazing. I'm feeling the song. So true.
SMOOOOOTH... .
This song is so Neo-Soul good. Just what the R&B needs... Bless you sis and please keep exercising your Gift!
Great sound, please don't stop!
Lashell is one of my favorites. I wish she would do some more contemporary NeoSoul and R&B.
Great song. Wondered what happened to this amazing sister.
This is song makes you wanna book a flight somewhere.
Love her CD, can't wait for my life to turn around when I get 36 in 2013.God can change anything at anytime
Nice voice!
I like her voice, but not the beginning of the song since it is someone else singing. She needs a good writer of songs so as not to sound like everyone else who hits a note a sings around it.
Sylvia
very nice
I agreee with edu14life
this sister definitely went under the radar. beautiful voice.
I too had never heard of Lashell until now, but I don't watch Oprah, so maybe that's why. I really dig her voice and because she is from my hometown, Detroit, I hope she can further her singing career.
Never heard of her until now,but definately coping this one

Wow this just shows how strong Black women are with five children and perseverance this young lady did her thing!!!! She has a great sultry voice like this artist, yeah Oprah what's up with that!!! ; )
Why are we just hearing about her, with all of Oprahs pull she could not have made this person a house hold name. Come on Oprah!!
First time hearing about Lashell Griffin. Nice! Please play more songs from her CD

I remember when she was on Oprah and won. This is the first time that I heard this (or any song) by her. Great job!!!
Beautiful Vocals...To match a Beautiful person. I sang in the choir with Lashell, and she still awwwws me when I hear her sing. I looked up to LaShell and Peggy Wilson (two Sangin' Sistas) which inspired me to eventually sing with a Gospel Recording Artist myself. She is truly God's Gift to us all. Keep up the good work Shell!!!!!
chelyn62

Effortless sing is always a joy to hear!!!!!!!! ! !

I love her cd. There are some incredible songs on it

I worked with Lashell's mom, Gerry, at a community in Highland Park, MI... It's good to see that a mothers work really pays off. Lashell was also so humble.
I remember this sista from Oprah's. I remember my grandmother calling me to tell me about her, she was great then and still now! The sista never gave up! You go my sista, some of us brotha's respect you!
