She is a powerhouse vocalist and one of few ‘new school’ class of female vocalists who can capture the definitive essence of traditional gospel and “church” music at its best. As soon as a single note is dropped from her mic, you know you are in for a musical experience in its most dynamic and pristine form. MONICA LISA STEVENSON is that vocalist who provides a commanding presentation and a life impacting spiritual encounter through every song she sings.
Monica Lisa was born into a talented family of singers. The eldest of six children, she and her siblings were raised in Wetumpka, Alabama, where they were inspired, encouraged, and trained by their parents, the late George Bowen and Pearlie Ellis. She began to minister in song and organized Lisa Stevenson & Company in 1997 shortly after becoming a licensed minister of the gospel. Her true joy is just to be able to sing before audiences, but Monica Lisa has a litany of achievements and experiences that have contributed to her thriving and passion-filled music ministry.
Monica Lisa has delivered two highly acclaimed and award winning projects. Her freshman album FINALLY…IN GOD’S TIME (2009) earned her two Stellar Award Nominations for Best New Artist and Traditional Female Vocalist of the Year. Her next album LIVE IN ATLANTA (2013) garnered the songstress the 2014 Gospel Blue Mic Award for Artist Of The Year and a 2015 Stellar Award Nomination. Monica Lisa has also captured two Atlanta Gospel Choice Awards for Best Female Artist in 2008 and Song of the Year in 2009.
Monica Lisa’s numerous national appearances include BET’s Dr. Bobby Jones Gospel, Atlanta Live TV, Babbie’s House TV, The Sweet Auburn Festival, The Rhythm of Gospel Awards, The Gospel Heritage Praise and Worship Conference and The Full Gospel Baptist Church Fellowship International Conferences. She was also cast for an appearance in the Tyler Perry movie Madea’s Big Happy Family and TV series The Have and The Have Nots. Her touring territory expanded to international status when the singer toured throughout Switzerland and Italy in 2011.
Her hard working drive and stamina has enabled her to sing with gospel greats – the legendary Caravans, Pastor Shirley Caesar, Kathy Taylor, Bishop Paul Morton, Jason Crabb, Erica Campbell, The Williams Brothers, Pastor Marvin Sapp, J Moss, Tasha Cobbs and Pastor William Murphy. An esteemed milestone for Monica Lisa was to record “Lord Keep Me” (Day by Day), made a classic by the legendary Caravan’s founder the late Dr. Albertina Walker and to minister the song at the celebrated gospel queen’s home going service.
Born on the south side of Chicago, Tiffany Lanae (pronounced La Nae’) is the 5th of 9 children who all possess musical gifts. As the daughter of a pastor, Tiffany enjoyed singing at her home church, House of Prayer Temple Church of God in Christ, and even started an a cappella gospel group at her high school, Morgan Park H.S., called AFRICAA Ensemble. Tiffany relocated to Washington, DC where she continued her love of singing through many choirs and local gospel groups, including the New Bethel COGIC Choirs, Urban Nation and the Howard University Community Choir. From there, Tiffany continued to serve for over 5 years and grew to become the Music Ministry Team Leader at Victory Christian Ministries International in Washington, DC, which included mentoring other worship leaders and coordinating music for annual conferences and the drama ministry. Currently, she is an ordained Evangelist and serves as the Worship Leader at New Wineskins Covenant Assembly in Annandale, VA. She is also the Music Director for the multi award-winning gospel stage play, TORN. Additionally, she ministers at various churches and events across the country, sharing the gift of song through prophetic worship.

Tiffany has garnered 3 nominations for gospel music, including 2020 Finalist for Gospel Choice Music Awards Female Artist/Vocalist of the Year and 2020 Independent Gospel Artist Association’s Christian Contemporary Artist of the Year. Since June 2017, she felt an overwhelming burden to reach the lost and win souls for Christ. As a result, she founded The Village, an evangelistic and missions-driven music ministry that serves as a bridge between the unchurched and the local church to reach souls for the Kingdom of God through music. In October 2019, The Village established itself as a 501 c3 non-profit organization, with plans to expand into new areas of arts outreach. In January 2020, The Village received a Community Service Award from The Widow’s Pantry Inc. for their faithful ministry to the homeless population in Washington, DC.
