In an industry cluttered with pop princesses and hollow messages, J. Anastacia is a breath of fresh air. This impressive newcomer has proven with her first single, “Come Together As One”, that she is here to stay. Often referred to as a ‘singer’s singer’, this island beauty possesses vocal depth and a stellar range that makes her a significant contender for the hearts of music lovers all over the world.
J. Anastacia was raised and nurtured on the picturesque islands of The Bahamas but now calls Houston, Texas home. Her singing ability was recognized by her family at the tender age of five and since that time she has honed her talent in preparation to someday walk in her destiny as a professional singer. Though she is a newcomer to the music industry in the United States, J. Anastacia is no stranger to the stage. As a teenager, she received the opportunity to share the stage with the platinum selling contemporary gospel group, “Out Of Eden” at the “When I Became A Star Talent Search” in Nashville, Tennessee. She has performed at countless national events in her native Bahamas and has also represented her country as “Miss Bahamas” at numerous international pageants; in all of which she placed among the top three.
“Come Together As One” was written by J. Anastacia and Kendall Barr shortly after the 9-11 tragedy but has remained a hidden gem until now. It emerges today as a song that has the ability to move people in a direction of hope and change because its message speaks directly to the increasing fears and issues that people now face. Never before has this generation experienced such fear and uncertainty which is precisely why now more than ever we need to hear messages that uplift us, unite us and inspire us to come together for the common goal of making the changes necessary to move our world in the right direction. “Come Together As One” is such an anthem.
Using the universal language of music, J. Anastacia skillfully delivers melodic and reassuring tones that encourage her listeners to unite and reject the things and people who keep us divided. The lyrics of “Come Together As One” inspire us to “stand together in love, with our dreams of peace and the hope of love, thoughts of unity.” Throughout the song, we are further pressed to “make a difference now, just stand and be seen”.
Now is the time for this generation to seize its destiny. We all deserve to live in a world filled with hope, peace and love . . . not fear, desperation and uncertainty. “Come Together As One” is the anthem that delivers just the right dose of hope to inspire change in the hearts of people and J. Anastacia masterfully dispenses this much needed medicine to the world.
