Grammy nominated singer, songwriter, musician, Ayiesha Woods, is generating excitement for her fans with the release of her new single, "Family," and the accompanying music video. This is a timely pop tune that celebrates family-whether it's the family of humanity or your own family. Woods co-wrote and produced the song with her husband, Joseph Hillery and Andy Anderson. Besides delivering a Christian message of love, peace and harmony, Woods brings the celebration of community with upbeat music that is so needed in this troubling time we live in.
The website, JesusfreakHideout.com, has given a strong review for "Family" from reviewer, Josh Balogh. "Overall, this is a strong song at a much needed time and in history, and this reviewer for one is hoping she has more exuberant songs of encouragement up her sleeve in 2020, as this world is desperately in need of hope. Add this one to your active playlists immediately, and allow it to lift your spirits when you need a little pick-me-up."
Woods has always delivered encouraging messages through her music and ministry, with such hit singles as "Happy," "Big Enough" and "Beauty." Her ministry has also focused on women and teen girl conferences that teach them who they are in Christ, with appearances that included Thomas Nelson's Women of Faith events, as well as their spin off for girls' Revolve Tour. This ministry is also important for Ayiesha's family, as their motto is Love God, Love People. Serve God, Serve People.Woods will be releasing her new album, Full Circle, in the fall, which features the current single.
