Christian Recording Artist, Octavia, is known for her powerful strong vocals, intense passion for worship and outgoing personality.
Her biggest love is God and secondly music. She fills a role as worship leader and serves in her local church on Sundays.
Over the past twenty years she has been singing. During that time the development of her unique style of music has been said to transform the lives of many in a positive way. Octavia’s journey began singing at an early age. Raised in a Christian home, daughter of a preacher, she’s had a front row seat to the ministry from her youth. In 2013 she debuted her single, “God Will Deliver” on iTunes. This fresh sound quickly connected to audiences across culturally diverse communities. Her album, “Cheerleader” was released in 2014.
Octavia took a sabbatical to focus on her health and wellness. She decided to take her life back by getting her weight under control, something she has struggled with for many years. She embarked on a quest to be “fit at 480” months (40 years old). Her documented weight loss journey can be viewed on YouTube (@Simplyoctavia). A year later, Octavia “discarded 80 pounds” and continues to maintain a healthy lifestyle of good nutrition and exercise. Since her transformation of mind and body, Octavia decided it was time to put pen to paper and began writing music again. “I realized God will grant us the desires of our heart if we just ask Him. So I began asking Him for new music and it never fails, He always delivers!” says Octavia.
