After releasing her first album, “My World” in 2005 at the age of 19, a mere three years after becoming a semi-finalist on American Idol, a world of opportunity opened up for Joanna Beasley. Her energizing single “Right Where You Want Me” (released as Joanna Martino) quickly rose to the #1 spot on the charts for IndieHeaven Radio. Joanna married Kerry Beasley in 2008, followed by the release of her second album, “Patiently Waiting”, in 2009. Growing in her understanding and experience with the Lord though worship and the Word, she wrote her first worship album titled “Loud Love” which was named “Top 20 Worship Albums of 2013” by New Release Tuesday. Her most recent release was an EP titled “Hallelujah Christmas” which was recently aired on TBN’s Juce TV for a special Christmas edition 2016..
Joanna, who is a former TV host for Steelroots (The Inspiration Network), has shared the stage with many other Nationally Recording Christian artists like herself, such as Chris Tomlin, Mercy Me, Natalie Grant, Michael W. Smith and countless others. She has written songs with Chris McClarney (“Your Love Never Fails”), Krissy Norhdoff (Dove Award winner for worship song of the year “Your Great Name”), and Dustin Burnett (Newsboys, Rhett Walker Band), and works closely with her producer, Stephen Leiweke (Jason Castro, Kari Jobe), to share her heart for the message of Grace which she also shares through her gift of speaking at many woman’s conferences, youth events and Bible studies.
Joanna and her husband welcomed their first baby into the world in 2014 and were creatively inspired to name him Rovun Ray (Shepherd King). Joanna continues to write, lead, worship and speak with one purpose in mind, “Inspire & Rewire: The way to experience true transformation is a combination of emotional conclusions and hard-core truthful facts based on the Word and how that Word created our creation. I’ve dedicated my life to helping people experience this because my life has been radically changed by it. It’s one of the main reasons I released my last album ‘Loud Love.’ Every line was deeply meditated on to combine melodies with the soul moving Words of our Father. It’s powerful, and has the ability to Inspire & Rewire. We can always come to Him no matter what we’ve done. He loves us regardless of our flaws and failures and has given us the Grace to overcome.”
Joanna recently joined the Staff as a Worship Leader at The Congregation Church with Pastor Tim Storey (Super Soul 100 of OWN) in Orange County, CA. Residing locally, Joanna and her husband Kerry are also partnering with Pastor Tim at The Study, a Hollywood-based bible study for entertainment personalities. Joanna Beasley is on a path that is clearly making an impact on the world.
