Wura Grant is a christian praise and worship leader, singer, and songwriter whose expressed mission is “to share the love and word of God through music”. Her musical style is one of jubilant praise and worship to the glory of God.

G5yt Coupling those amazing traits with an unforgettable anointing and you have the music ministry of Wura Grant. Fans of the artist and worship leader have been lifting hands to her debut single, “There Is A Name” and she’s touching their hearts again with the brand new single, “I See Victory”. Both songs are from the gifted psalmist’s debut called Peace In The Midst, released in 2015.
The first song from the forthcoming record is the power ballad “There Is A Name” which was #1 on the Urban Christian Music Radio Chart and #5 on the Contemporary Christian Music Radio Chart in 2014. Clearly inspired by the experiences in her life, she wrote the song as a testament to the power in the Name of Jesus. The track reiterates the sacred scripture from Philippians 2:10: “At the Name of Jesus every knee must bow and confess that Jesus Christ is Lord”. The song wasn’t just a testament to the power of God, but for Wura, it was a song of healing for her emotionally and mentally. “After sharing the song over and over again, I could feel the healing power of God on the inside of me,” says Wura. “I was determined to share that message with others so that they could feel what I felt.”
She recently released her 2nd single “I See Victory”. Another inspirational cut, “I See Victory” is a song of declaration with lyrics focused on an apparent victory that awaits the believer. To some,it could be a song of defiance, ignoring what can be seen with the naked eye and choosing to see with a spiritual one. Either way, the song is uplifting believers everywhere. Again, Wura encourages through her music, a calling she believes God has given her. Both songs give just a taste of what is to come from the new release, Peace In The Midst. Dropping in mid-2015, the project features popular producers and songwriters. Grant tapped Shannon Sanders (songwriter
of Indie.Arie’s “Brown Skin”), Sean Paul Hill (Produced Jamie Grace single “Born Tonight”, David Hunter (Music Director for Ron Kenoly Ministries) and David Grant (Music Director for the annual Emmanuel Christmas Concert) as producers. The title reflects her desire to share the peace of God with listeners.
Wura is honored by the blessed opportunities and the recognition, but for her it’s all about the music and the God she serves. “Music is like oxygen to me,” shares Wura. “Without it, I don’t think I could breathe. It’s what makes me who I am. It’s such a source of life to me. And God is THE source of life. I just want to share what He’s given me with the world.”
