￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼For Sherry Ann Maughan, it all began in John’s Village, San Fernando in the south of Trinidad. There she grew up in a musical family and started singing from as early as three year’s old at Ambassadors for Christ, a church founded by her grandfather. Sherry groomed her singing abilities at her home church under the watchful eye of her aunt, before relocating to another Caribbean island, Barbados.
Only eleven years old when relocating, though Sherry Ann had to settle in a new country, her singing journey continued. This time at The Sanctuary Empowerment Centre where she became active in the worship and youth ministries. Sherry Ann has always had a passion for singing and writing and wrote her first song at age sixteen called, “One in a Million”. Since then, she has worked with choirs at her local assembly, designed and implemented training programmes for youth and has appeared at national events as a solo artiste or as backup vocals for leading artistes.
Then came 2014, Sherry Ann’s breakout year. She won the annual FLOW Life 97.5 FM Gospel Challenge with a cover of Mary Mary’s “Yesterday” in an experience which she describes in this way, “God met me on stage”. Her ministry on that night was simply stellar and won her the title from a field of 10 finalists with the highest points from the audition rounds, which included singers from all across Barbados.
On a mission to advance the Kingdom of God through music, four weeks after winning the FLOW Life 97.5 FM Gospel Challenge, Sherry Ann released her debut single, “Born to Worship”. This song with its catchy “Hallelujah” hook line and strong Caribbean rhythm not only gets you moving but its lyrics compel you into your own private praise and worship session.
“Born To Worship” has already become a regular on airwaves around the Caribbean and presents Sherry Ann’s versatility as worship leader and soloist, capable of liberating souls with top-charting ballads, to an artiste that gets you in the praise groove with sweet soca/calypso fusions.
