Bluebox excites the industry with their single release entitled “God Sent Me Tyrone” Recorded at Bluebox Studios as LaShun mentions in the song… Download your copy today!!! Atlanta-born gospel singer LaShun Pace first emerged during the mid-1970s, performing alongside her siblings in the group the Anointed Pace Sisters. Her singing and ministering skills were further honed while she toured with the Rev. Gene Martin and the Action Revival Team, and in 1998 she recorded In the House of the Lord with Dr. Jonathan Greer and the Cathedral of Faith Choirs for Savoy Records. The label signed Pace as a solo artist soon after, and in 1990 she issued her debut He Lives, which reached the number two spot on the Billboard gospel charts; the follow-up, Shekinah Glory, appeared in 1993. Three years later, Pace returned with Wealthy Place; in addition to successive releases including 1998’s Just Because God Said It, she also enjoyed a career as an actress, most notably co-starring as the Angel of Mercy in the 1992 Steve Martin film Leap of Faith.
Three more hit solo albums, as well as numerous awards—including two of Gospel’s coveted Stellar Awards—came LaShun’s way over the next seven years, but ironically, it was perhaps the hardest time she had ever weathered in her personal life. The death of her first-born daughter, Xenia, was followed all too soon by the demise of her marriage. Devastated as only a mother can be at the loss of a young child, LaShun also found herself a single mother, surrounded by supposed friends whom she found all too ready to judge her, rather than comfort and console in the face of her ensuing divorce.
And yet, even as her personal tragedies and the requisite time for healing and recovery that followed conspired to keep LaShun out of the recording studio for a season, she is back once again, resilient and brilliant as ever, with both It’s My Time and her recently published autobiography, For My Good, But For His Glory.
In the 13th Chapter of Zephaniah, the Lord spoke words to the Old Testament prophet, that to this very day sum up the first love and lifelong commitment of LaShun Pace, and the unquestionable source of the profound inspiration that underpins her incredible singing and songwriting. It reads: “I will bring those that remain through the fire and make them pure, as gold and silver are refined and purified by fire. They will call upon My name and I will hear them; and I will say, `These are My people,’ and they will say, `The Lord is our God.’”
LaShun Pace has indeed been through the fire, and also known the silver and gold, and through it all never doubted the One whose hand guided every step of her way. On It’s My Time, after a far-too-long, four-year hiatus, the next chapter in the deeply moving story of LaShun Pace is being told on CD, radio, and in churches, auditoriums and concert halls the world over, as an artist who has never really been gone from the lives and the hearts of those who love her, is once again heard in all of her, and her heavenly Father’s, glory. In 2003, Pace authored an autobiography entitled For My Good But For His Glory in which she discussed a wide range of topics, including the death of her first-born daughter, Xenia.
LaShun was inducted into the Christian Music Hall of Fame in 2007. She was to be at the official presentation ceremony with numerous other guests to be formally inducted, but fell ill and was unable to attend.
In 2009, LaShun was nominated for Urban Performer of the Year in the Visionary Awards. Winners to be announced live during the 2009 Christian Music Hall of Fame Awards Show on November 14, 2009.
