Who Is Upcoming Artist Laverne Peters?
LaVerne M. Peters. (CANDY) is an energetic and gifted praise and worship leader who is also classified as “God’s Vessel”, an anointed voice that is used for His handiwork. Created to export musical expression all over the world through the sharing of the Gospel through song, through the midst of life situations, she is a yielded vessel to be used by the Lord to encourage, strengthen and uplift spirits in the lives of others for God’s purpose.
Originally from Charlottesville, Virginia, she was raised in Alexandria, Virginia with one sister and five brothers in the family. She is the daughter of proud parents, Fred and Helen Johnson and she is married with eight children.
Laverne began singing in the church at the tender age of 10. Disabled and injured in a car accident at the age of 23, she received her healing and a true desire to minister in song as a result of God’s divine purpose for her life. By the grace of God, she was saved at 24 and through the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, and a pressing need to deliver the promises found in His Word through the gift of song, she began writing songs for the Lord for His glory.
Laverne comes from a family that loves to sing and she and all of her siblings followed in their parent’s footsteps. Her desire is to see people healed and delivered. She believes that “all things are possible through Christ”. “I try not to limit Him and I can do anything I set my mind to. I have a desire to see people healed, delivered and set free.”
The name Laverne means ‘Like the Spring’, which also describes her desire for her songs to minister and touch the lives of others through the Word and to bring deliverance and encouragement like a spring of fresh air. “My prayer and desire is for Him to have His way with me through my music and when His gifts are fully active and I am yielded to the Holy Spirit, anything can happen. He gives songs to me in my spirit. As I am delighting and encouraging myself in the Lord, He will in turn bring about a song to delight and encourage others. We all go through trials, but through my trials, God brings me through my own personal trials through song. I am a living witness and have personal testament of His goodness, His deliverance, His divine love and encouragement and His precious internal and external healing power.”
Laverne performs in a choir called “The Souls4Real Ensemble Community Gospel Choir” under the direction of Minister Kelvin Teel Sr. Souls4Real Ministries is a collaboration of souls (believers) who love and obey the Lord Jesus Christ. Souls4Real Ministries’ strive to live on purpose and for real (authentic not perfect) by the guiding of the Holy Spirit. Laverne says, “having a real thirst for the Lord is my passion!”
Giving honor to God, and to her spiritual leaders, Dr. Apostle Leroy Vincent Washington Sr. and Dr. Prophetess, Evangelist Lila M. Washington of Christians Of Faith Teaching Ministries, Laverne is grateful for the love, support and teachings of this anointed deliverance ministry. “The Lord uses Apostle and Prophetess Washington to pour into me and I have been apart of this wonderful ministry for 16 years. Their teaching and spiritual guidance have been instrumental in my life and I have been taught how to overcome through the absolute truth of the living Word of God. I have been blessed to be taught by this great Man and Woman of God, who truly live this life in accordance and through the Word of God. I am internally grateful for their continual love and support and for teaching me how to obtain victory over every situation and obstacle in my life – which is why I have such high praise.”
“My prayer is to be used by God on this project to deliver a worship experience with a God-inspired praise to transform lives into the presence of the Lord, in order to produce an end result of changed lives for the advancement of the Kingdom of God. God Bless You!”
