Gospel’s premiere saxophonist, Angella Christie, is the first female internationally acclaimed Gospel saxophonist in the world. As a graduate of Houston Baptist Universitywith dual degrees, she is doing great exploits and presently resides in Atlanta, GA.
She began her musical career traveling across the country and around the world sharing her faith at Sunday Morning Worship, Sunday Night Broadcasts, Revivals, Conventions, Conferences, and where ever the saints were gathered.
In fulfilling the vision of her youth, Angella Christie, Founder/CEO of Angella Christie Sound Ministries (ACSM) and ACSM Music, has established a reputation as gospel’s premiere saxophonist over the past twenty-seven years. She has traveled the globe ministering, often sharing the platform with global leaders, yet never shying away from sharing her faith --- conveying a clear message of the gospel through speaking and playing instrumental gospel music.
Globally, Angella has literally performed throughout the United States and in Japan, London, Germany, Uganda, South Africa, Nigeria, Bermuda and the Caribbean Islands. By means of television (Day Star, TBN-Praise the Lord, BET Gospel, BET Jazz, The Word Network and others) her performances have been seen in over 138 countries. In 2014, she was honored to minister before over 600,000 people at the Experience in Lagos and fourteen days later be invited back by the Nigerian government to minister during the Akwa Ibom State Carol Night Event which featured their 9,999 voice choir.
She is the 2009 Stellar Award Winner for “Instrumental Gospel CD of the Year”, athree-time Stellar AwardNominee(1996, 1998, 2006), 2009 Dove Award Nominee for“Instrumental Album of the Year” and a 2010American Smooth Jazz Nominee for“Gospel Jazz CD of the Year”.
Ms. Christie was featured along with Yolanda Adams, Mary Mary, and Shirley Caesar during the 40-city Sisters In The Spirit 2000 tour. Also, she has been featured in several publications such as Jet Magazine (featured with former President Bill Clinton), Ebony, Charisma, BET Weekend, Upscale, and Billboard to name a few.
Affectionately known as “the girl that plays with her shoes off”, Angella’s unique artistry as the energetic saxophonist is far superceded by her undaunted faith, love and devotion to God, allegiance to the songs of the church and her appreciation for the contemporary sounds of today, which have found expression in a number of her recordings including her latest, Intimate Conversations (ACSM).
Angella reinvented ACSM where Sound no longer signified just audio performance quality but also sound doctrine. The silent songstress broke her silence, stepped boldly into the stiletto heels of ministry CEO, executive producer, author, Bible teacher and psalmist. She was invited to speak on TBN and CBN Intl. that subsequently further expanded her visibility, voice, passion, love and vast knowledge of the Word and life message to a global audience.
A theologian by DNA, Angella is now carrying the Ministry mantel of her missionary parents who’s mothers prophecy given to her at age 15 has come to full fruition. As Angella continues to spread the good news of Jesus Christ through ministering in Word & Music!
Breathtaking Views When You're Intimate With HIM
What would make a young girl think that she could take a sax with the audacious determination to travel the world playing gospel? Didn’t she consider that many would say her dream was too ambitious, impractical or unlady like? Didn’t she consider that the world and many church folks would categorical label her a jazz musician in spite her evangelistic exploits and self proclaimed identity of being an “instrumental gospel saxophonist?” Didn’t she consider it’s a mannnnnn’s world!
Naw, of course not!…She concluded, “The earth is the Lord’s the fullness thereof and all they that dwell therein,” and went for IT!
