ON A MISSION:
Sister Kerry is the latest name emerging from the gospel music scene, with her soulful voice and passionate lyrics giving the genre a much-needed 21st-century boost. Her upcoming release, Mercy Feet, is gathering a lot of excitement within the gospel community.
Kerry Anne Panton started singing and writing her own music at the age of 13 and, as she grew older, the people at her local church began to refer to her as Sister Kerry – and so the stage name was born.
Despite singing prayers in her teenage years and earning money performing at functions during her university years, Sister Kerry decided to take the plunge into professional gospel music in 2019. Since then, she has gone from strength to strength, driven by her positive, religious messages.
Sister Kerry draws inspiration from legends of the gospel scene, including Marvia Providence, Barbara Jones, Shirley Ceaser, and Tasha Corbbs. You can really hear Kerry channelling these powerhouses during her performances, while adding her own unique style to the mix.
After enjoying a positive response to her last track, Jesus the Chain Breaker, Sister Kerry is back imminently with her new single in the form of Mercy Feet. As with the vast majority of her lyrics, Mercy Feet was born from prayer, before Sister Kerry used her musical talents to immortalise them in song!
Quickly gaining recognition for her sweet, soulful songs, and unique fashion sense, Sister Kerry is well-deserving of a spot on your gospel playlist this year!
