Music for your mind. Message for your soul.
Rochelle has been singing ever since she can remember, but it was after a close brush with death in December 2005, when she got into a car accident, that she decided to take music seriously. Today, her music brings an inspirational message of hope and a positive outlook on daily life.
Coming from a musical family, Rochelle grew up under the influence of gospel, jazz, and classical music. She started taking piano lessons when she was just 4 years old and over the years she picked up the trumpet, the flute, and the guitar. She's been on stage performing solo and with groups since she was six.
Because of her authentic message and genuine personality, audiences respond to Rochelle's transparency. Her music has strong lyrical content and smooth melodies, conveying a message that ministers directly to the soul.
Rochelle writes her own music and has been doing so since her freshman year in high school. Her debut CD "STEP OUT" is more than a collection of words, melodies, and original music. It's her testimony. A must have CD that crosses all boundaries and borders.
December 2007, Rochelle got an offer from Zhan're Music Group (an Indie Gospel label) to sign as one of their artists. She accepted the offer and signed an Artist Development Contract. The album was released at The Trane Studio Jazz Lounge in Toronto on April 12, 2008 to a full house of excited supporters.
In the past, Rochelle has written music for Impact Toronto 2000, an international event organized by the General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists. She has ministered to audiences of every size, from small groups of people at homeless shelters to thousands of worldwide worshipers gathered at international events, such as the General Conference meetings of her church.
A graduate of Andrews University in Berrien Springs, MI, Rochelle holds a BA in Journalism and Media Studies. She worked 5 years as a radio personality at classical radio station, WAUS 90.7FM. She was accepted into Berklee College of Music with a $7,000 scholarship in 2007, and is currently in Toronto, doing concerts and special events, spreading the gospel at every opportunity. Feel free to tell a few of your friends about Rochelle, and thank you for supporting her as she spreads the gospel to the world.
FROM CRASH TO CALL
By Rochelle Hanson
It happened around 2:00am, December 23, 2005.
I was exhausted. Shocked. Confused.
Before I left, my Dad called and told me not to do it. He wanted me to wait, and so did most of my friends. But I was stubborn, and I had already convinced myself that this was what God wanted me to do.
I gave away almost everything I owned, packed whatever was left in my little Honda Civic, and hit the road. Leaving behind a secure, well established life in Michigan, I left my cushy radio job, and headed home to Canada with no plans of turning back.
About an hour away from home, it happened.
Gasping in fear, my body jolted forward when I realized what was going on. I had fallen asleep at the wheel, and the loud buzz that woke me up was the sound of the car going off the highway.
I quickly steered to the right to get back on the road when suddenly I hit a patch of ice. The car spun around backwards and flew off in the wrong direction. With my head spinning and my heart in a panic, I lost control of the car and crashed into a cement guard rail. The mug of hot chocolate balancing in the cup holder spilled all over the car's interior and the head of my guitar swung from the passenger seat and hit my right arm. When the car stopped, so did the noise in my brain, and a tear trickled down my cheek. I paused, took a deep breath and got out of the car only to see that there was much more damage than I thought. The car was totaled, but by the grace of God, I walked away with not even one scratch.
Just seconds after the accident, two semi trucks drove by. If I had still been in their lane, there would have been a head on collision and I could have been dead... I praise God for saving my life that nightâ¦He saved me from myself. Every time I think about it, I have to make music.
I spent the rest of that night questioning why God chose to save me. I cried and I cried! Especially because two weeks before that, a close friend of mine lost someone that she loved in a car accident. Why did God choose to save me and not the other person? When I asked the question, a calming spirit comforted me. It was the Holy Spiritâ¦ and he saidâ¦
âYou are alive because I have work for you to do, Rochelle. I saved you for a purpose.â
It was after that car accident that I started to take my music seriously again. I went back to the US and my cushy radio job, and I used the money I earned to start recording my latest project, âStep Out.â Once I got the ball rolling and people heard the music, financial support started coming out of the woodworks! Jennifer Jill of Michael Ministries became a major sponsor and fit the bill for half of the project. The rest came from friends and family who saw the good that God was doing through me. They all wanted to do whatever they could to help.
The process of writing the music and recording the CD was a faith building experience in itself. Unfortunately thereâs not enough time to tell all the stories here. But I sure have learned a lot about who my God is. Iâve learned that He has a purpose and a plan for each of us, and that He loves us even more than we can understand.
Thereâs no question in my mind that I was made to minister. The Lord knew this long before I was born and Heâs been calling me since I was in the womb. Finally, Iâve found myself in a place where I can hear His voice! Yes, it took a serious crash to get me there, but Iâm glad to say Iâve responded, and Iâve wholeheartedly accepted the call.
My mission in life is now to use the gifts that God has given me to spread the gospel to the world. Thank you so much for your support!
