Rhema Marvanne began singing as soon as she learned to talk… and she hasn’t stopped since. This tiny little girl has an incredibly big voice that’s so powerful it’s guaranteed to move you, but it’s where Rhema gets her inspiration from that really touches the heart.
When Rhema was only 4 years old, her mother Wendi was diagnosed with ovarian cancer. Instead of shielding his daughter from her mother’s pain and suffering, Rhema’s father included her in hospital visits, knowing that Wendi felt strength from her presence, and vice versa.
After Rhema’s mother passed away in 2008, she felt a calling to pursue Gospel singing. With help from her father, Teton, Rhema has recorded number of successful gospel and non-secular songs, which she says are inspired by her late mother. Instead of taking this experience and letting it throw her into the depths of despair, Rhema and her family are using it to honor their beloved, and lift themselves, and others, up. Truly incredible.
Whether she’s performing with the Nashville Symphony, appearing on The Today Show, or singing at a memorial for victims of the Fort Hood shootings, Rhema says she is always singing to and for her angel up above.
