Today's Music Monday Artist is Jezreel Sweets from Miami Florida. Yes, her music is catchy but what really catches you is her profound testimony of God's grace & restoration. Born of Haitian descent, Jezreel's flow and lyrical content greatly displays her love for God and her unapologetic, straight forward character. Jezreel Sweet, a Deerfield Beach native, is also known for her affiliation with former label (Dollaz-N-Dealz) which spawned the successful careers of Ace Hood and Kodak Black. She has also featured on some of the songs well-known Haitian bands. Being a preacher’s daughter and growing up in the church she was never fully comfortable with the secular music she was making. One day and engineer, now one of her good friends, invited her to a prophetic church. She really liked what she was learning about the love of God, and went on a 21 day spiritual fast. After the fast Jezreel was not able to make the worldly music she was making anymore, and had to cut ties with the secular music scene.Although the urge to make music that was not of God went away, the desire to touch people with the love of God through music began to grow. As Jezreel began to hit the studio a collection of songs about praising and worship God through the use of Hip Hop, RnB, and Caribbean inspired beats are what was created through the Holy Spirit.
