Toronto-based gospel artiste Highly Favoured Blake will be releasing her debut album, 'Breaking Me to Bless Me' in February 2020.

"I am looking forward to the launch of the album because these gospel songs have a powerful message that the Christian faithful and the unsaved need to hear , it is really food for the soul," said the artiste, whose real name is NeKesha Ann-Marie Blake.

She released three singles, 'Breaking Me to Bless Me', 'Reborn' and 'Birthday Thanksgiving' from the album in January to help build momentum for the album's launch next month.  

"I will be going all out in 2020, I will even be entering the JCDC Festival song contest," she said.  

She is booked to appear on the Brother Gary Gospel Memorial Festival in Florida on  May 24th, as well as Polyanna Project on March 13 in Bronx, New York, and Facebook Meet and Greet in West Palm Beach in July.

She first came to public attention last year with her  'Remember the Yam' that  gained traction among radio disc jockeys in Canada, and got spins on IRIE FM, Mello FM, TBC and Love FM.

Born in Kingston, Jamaica, she attended St Hugh's High School for Girls but migrated to Canada at age 14 in 1995. She attended Downsview Secondary in Toronto and then matriculated to George Brown College where she read for a diploma in nursing. She is now lives in Ontario, Canada with her two children and her mother where she works as a nurse. 

Highly Favoured Blake hopes that her music will ignite a change in people's hearts, and invite God’s presence to stay with His people, eventually sparking a global healing. 

"My goal is to use my songs to drive home the message of Christ's love for all, and to bring peace, cheer and encouragement to all," she said.
