TeSchara is originally from the State of Connecticut and is the youngest of two children born to Deacon James and Betti Teel. She began singing in the church where she grew up, East End Baptist Tabernacle Church in the Starlight Choir at the age of three, under the tutelage of Reverend Michael Cummings and the late Reverend Maxine Foster Durham. It was during these early years and stages in her life that she realized her love and passion for singing.
In 1996, TeSchara’s life journey led her to Jacksonville University, where she graduated in 2000 earning a Bachelor of Science Degree in Marketing, with a Minor in Dance. Upon graduation, TeSchara decided to make Jacksonville her home, where she now resides with her only child, Devaen Boykin. While at Jacksonville University, she began attending Circle of Faith Ministries. This is where she received salvation from The Lord.
Just months after receiving salvation, TeSchara wrote her very first official song as a new creation in Christ. And that is when it all began. She started writing more and more. Then, one day, years later, the Holy Spirit spoke to her and said, these songs I’ve given you are not going to reach anyone in the world just simply staying in your notebook. It was then that she knew she had to start taking steps towards building a closer relationship with God, strengthening her voice, and getting the songs out.
She was asked to be apart of the Praise and Worship team at her church, Circle of Faith Ministries where she began to grow in the Lord, and He started building her confidence. A few years later, God gave her an assignment and an appointment that she did not feel ready to hold as the Director of Music at Whetstone Ministries, under the leadership of Pastors Joseph and Trinisia McRoy, Jr. She is currently with BeautyforAshes International Deliverance Ministries under the leadership of Apostle Felicia Stanley.
TeSchara released her very first single entitled “Stop and Look” in August of 2015. Her second single “Wonderful” was released November 2016. And her latest single “Prayer Changes Things was recently released February 2019. Later to have the full CD completed and released in 2020.
God is first in TeSchara’s life and she strives to live a life accordingly, consistently led by His voice, His Will and His Way. She truly believes in the “Golden Rule” and leads a life modeled after her favorite scriptures Matthew 6:33-34 and Romans 12:2.
