    Biography

    Janet Paschal is an inspirational gospel vocalist and performer, often associated with Bill Gaither's Homecoming Tour, and often hailed as one of the most soulfully versatile voices in Christian Music. A native of Reidsville, North Carolina, Paschal was raised in a religious and musically inclined family. Her grandfather was a minister who served as a great inspiration in her life. Following her high school graduation, Paschal was invited to become a member of the southern gospel group, The LeFevres. The group then changed its name to the Rex Nelon Singers after the last LeFevre retired from the group. From there she became a member of televangelist Jimmy Swaggart's Crusade Team. In 1986, Paschal began her solo career, releasing her first album entitled I Give You Jesus on Jimmy Swaggart's ministry label, Shiloh Records. Several other albums followed, but none gained the commercial success that would occur after Janet's 1992 move to Nashville, Tennessee. Her 1994 album, Journey of Grace, made a mark, but it was her 1997 album, The Good Road and also a book by the same title (authored by Paschal) that put her on the map. Since then, she has released seven more successful albums, received countless awards, and numerous Dove and Grammy nominations. She is consistently named one of Christian Music's top female vocalists. In 2005 Paschal was diagnosed with breast cancer and received 11 months of treatment. Following a clean bill of health, Paschal recorded a new project of hymns titled, Sounds Like Sunday, which benefits breast cancer research. Her latest releases include a CD titled Treasure and a book titled Treasures of the Snow. In 2012, she won the Diamond Award for Best Female Vocalist for the fourth time.

    Paschal's self-penned song, "Another Soldier's Coming Home" was written as a tribute to her grandfather. It became an instant hit and broadened Janet's audience tremendously. She was invited to perform the song for the national memorial service of Michael Blassie, the first unknown soldier to be exhumed and positively identified. The song is frequently performed by the United States Army Band and in a special video presentation at Los Angeles' Forest Lawn Memorial Park. It was the signature song for the organization, Grief Share.

    Paschal made history with the release of her first single from the 2008 Treasure album. Her single, "Hide Me Sweet Rock of Ages", landed at the #1 position on the August 2009 Singing News Top 80 Chart. Janet is the first full-time female soloist to have a #1 song on the magazine's charts.
