Gospel Artiste Lynda Randle: I am not a big deal God is.

Gospel Artiste Lynda Randle: I am not a big deal God is.

 

Lynda Randle talks with Noel about her journey as a gospel singer and song writer. She reflects on the moment joining the Gaithers and how God has been using her to minister to others. While many may know Lynda as a singer, songwriter, author, God on the mountain singer, and TV personality, her most cherished roles are that of wife to Michael Randle and mother to her two precious daughters, Patience and Joy. Lynda Tait Randle, as Bill Gaither has fondly introduced her for over a decade, was born in the inner city of Washington, D.C. She is the middle child of seven and feels blessed to have had the privilege of being raised in a Christian home. Although her parents, Nathel and Maxine Tait, taught her and her siblings the love of Christ very early on, Lynda still experienced a tumultuous and painful childhood. Despite being led to the Lord at the young age of 12, it would be years later before she really experienced the freedom from bondage that only God could give, Music became a way out of pain and heartache for Lynda and as a result of this God-given gift, many doors of opportunity have opened up for her.

During an interview on July 23, 2017, Noel asked Lynda at what moment did you realised I am Lynda Randle? Lynda laughed 🙂 and replied that she never had that moment and she later explained that she was on a cruise with her brother Michael Tait and someone asked if they ever thought they would have made it so big. “I have never had that moment I’m just doing the will of the Lord’.

Lynda’s distinct alto voice has created opportunities for her to minister across the United States and around the world. Her gift has allowed her to share the stage with musical legends, from Andre Crouch to Gladys Knight. Lynda has opened for national sporting events and has had the distinct honour of being a musical guest for a Billy Graham crusade. She has been a favorite on the Gaither Homecoming Series and Videos. Her two most requested songs are “God On The Mountain” and “I’m Free.” In 2005, she won a Dove Award for her album, “A Tribute To Mahalia Jackson.”  One remarkable element to Lynda and her ministry is her ability to quickly build rapport with audiences and draw them together regardless of age, race, or ethnicity. Her message and music are truly cross cultural. This is a theme that can be seen through her individual performances, women’s conferences, books, and albums. Lynda Ended her interview by encouraging the listeners to hold to God’s unchanging hands and know that you loved.
