Sharon Roshell is a singer and songwriter who is passionate about expressing her love for God through music. Her vocals are powerful, passionate, and leads her listener straight into an encounter with God’s presence. When Sharon Roshell sings, her audience feels it.
At the age of 13, Sharon was chosen to join singers across the nation to sing at the renowned Carnegie Hall in New York City. It was her first taste of what it was like to sing on a major stage and she has since been on many stages. Even though it took her a while to overcome a fear of being in front of people, due to constant criticism that she encountered as a child, Sharon continued to sing.
Sharon’s path to music wasn’t a straight line. She initially planned to go into the medical field as a nurse. As she drew closer to graduation, she realized that it was never a true desire. Shortly after that realization, one night she ended up at a tent revival. The traveling preacher asked her to stand and told her that she would bless the world with her music. She didn’t know one person at that revival, so she knew God was speaking directly to her. After much confirmation, she changed lanes and started heading towards her destiny. Soon after, she graduated from Valor Christian College with a degree in Praise & Worship Leadership. As a student at Valor, Sharon Roshell attended World Harvest Church, pastored by Dr. Rod Parsley. She was a member of the worship team and traveled with the noted pastor. At graduation she was bestowed a Pastoral medal of honor for her superior service to the ministry and school. After graduation, she relocated and served as the worship leader at Kingdom Life Church in Baltimore, Maryland, under the leadership of Pastors Michael and Anita Phillips. Sharon honed her songwriting skills while there and added the title “recording artist” to her resume with the introduction of her first recording God is Bigger, an EP, followed by Never Thirst Again, her first full length album.
Sharon Roshell has traveled North America and abroad to Europe, Asia, and Africa sharing her music and testimony. A woman came up to her after a concert and told her that a spirit of sadness, which had been with her since her son’s death 15 years earlier, completely disappeared when Sharon began to sing. Another woman who had been hearing “voices” was freed from those spirits when Sharon released a song of worship to the Lord. Experiences like these further confirm God’s calling upon Sharon Roshell’s life. Wherever she goes, many are touched by her music, and her gift has made way for the psalmist to open for artists like Tye Tribbett, Fred Hammond, Hezekiah Walker, Smokie Norful, Lauren Daigle, Newsboys, Michael W. Smith, and Matthew West.
Sharon Roshell has released 4 projects: God is Bigger in 2005, Never Thirst Again in 2008, Church Girl 20:14 in 2014, and her Billboard charting singles, iSing in 2019 and Father of Glory Live from her forth coming project, Declare and Decree Live, recorded live in Nashville, TN.
The songstress, a native of Hope Mills, NC, now lives in Louisville, KY with her husband, Antonio D. Thomas, and their 4 children. In addition to developing a new music label, Parresia Music, Sharon and her husband founded Kulima Care Family Services in 2016, a foster care and adoption placement agency under their nonprofit organization, Fuego Corporation. They have placed over 100 children in homes with loving families.
