"My hope is that when my music is heard, it ministers to an individual's spirit, body and mind. I want it to reveal that God is the from whom we gain our strength, and that we can make it in Christ. Can I get an Amen!?"
A unique mixture of contemporary Christian, R&B and dance music is what new artist Stacy Lugo brings to the gospel music community.
It was perhaps being raised in a home filled with the love of both God and music that inspired Stacy – at the young age of 11 to choose this path.
“Mom always took us to church, gospel musicals or church related functions and dad sang in a rhythm and blues group, so the exposure to both sacred and secular music helped me to gain a deeper appreciation of my talent and the art.”
Aside from her father’s musical influence, CeCe Winans, Dolly Parton, Donna Summers and Sergio Mendez also inspired her. She recalls as a young girl standing in her bedroom trying to imitate the voices of Roberta Flack and Barbara Streisand.
“At home we listened to everything from jazz to blues to pop to country” she said. “There were so many different artists to study and so many styles to master and I wanted to master them all”.
At age 11, she took her music literally into the streets, singing on the corner with friends as well as participating in school and church choirs. Lugo has ripened into a seasoned vocalist and songwriter and is ready to inspire the world.
Stacy’s upbringing and love of all types of music played a role when it came to writing for her debut album “FOR YOU”. With a blend of uplifting worship ballads and inspirational dance songs, “FOR YOU” showcases her versatile style with a collection of self penned- songs that will not only move the soul but also the body. And she can assure you there is definitely a piece of JESUS in every beat.
Stacy was born in Queens (The Bridge) New York and raised on Long Island (Central Islip), and currently resides in Suffolk County, with her husband Daniel and two daughters, Ashley and Savannah.
