More on Jessica
Overcoming struggles in life can be the gateway for an artist to fearlessly use their talent to inspire their best and most honest work. For Jessica
Ford, contemporary Gospel and Christian singer, her flawed past built the inner strength she needed to overcome suppression and abuse and project it back out into the world as heartfelt, inspirational music. Her single "I'm Not Broken", the title track to her upcoming album is her testimony of strength and unwavering faith. This Dove Award nominee knows, like so many others, that her past does not define who she is today. In spite of the obstacles that were put in her way, she is not "broken", but rather a human being deep in spiritual growth and healing. Jessica
wants her fans to know that no matter what, they are not broken, and alongside some of Nashville's most talented musicians and writers such as Mike P., Keith Barrett Jr., Duane Deemer and the legendary Duane Hitchings she has written a collection of songs that remind us all that it is never to late to heal.
Ford, a California native, was born into a family of talented singers and musicians, supporting her love of singing from the time she was young. It did not take long for Jessica
to begin gaining recognition for her "larger than life" voice. After years of performing in church, nursing homes, and school productions, Jessica
won second runner up in the Miss California State
Pageant and took home the award for "Most Inspirational Talent." She was the only contestant to ever receive a perfect score in the talent portion of the competition. As the years of performing went on, a love for creating and writing music began to evolve and Jessica
knew the next step was to not only sing great music she wrote but to begin to co-write and express the thoughts and feelings in her own heart.
While writing songs of redemption and her love for Jesus have become her calling card, Jessica
is no stranger to the rest of the world of music. She co-wrote 3 award winning songs that were placed in the childrenfs animated film gElf Sparkle Meets Christmas The Horseh. One of the songs, gWaiting For Christmas Day,h was recorded by Grammy Award winner Linda
Davis. She has been honored with multiple awards including a Dove Nomination, the Alaska Film Festival Kodiak Award for gBest Childrenfs Song In Filmh, USCAFA (United States Childrenfs Animated Film Award) Crystal Award winner for the song gI Do Believeh, the Dove Family Film Seal Award, the Pickleberry Award for Best Family Film and Best Score in an animated film for gI Can Flyh, the Great Lakes Film Festival Award for Best Animated Film, the Parents Choice Award and the Oregon Family Film Festival Crystal Award. She is the recipient of the the 2011 TSAI honorary "Hallman Award", the voice of the Disney Animated Film character gToodlesh in gToodles The Poodleh and gCowgirl Daisyh in the animated film gJimmy Paul The Pug Tooth Fairy 6.
