Singer and songwriter Leanna Crawford announces over social media that she is engaged to Cody Zeller. Zeller is a professional NBA basketball player, most recently playing for the Portland Trail Blazers.
Crawford announces on Facebook: "WE ARE GETTING MARRIED!"
Fans are quick to respond with their congratulations:
"Congrats and praying for an Ephesians 5 marriage."
"Congratulations to you both, may God bless your marriage."
"Are you going to rewrite the Prince Charming lyrics?! Seriously - congratulations!!!!"
"Your prince charming! Congratulations and God bless your journey together!"
Hailing from rural Washington state, the singer-songwriter has been writing, touring, and performing with some of the biggest names in the Christian music industry for the past three years. To date, she has already shared the stage with Matthew West, Michael W. Smith, Matt Maher, and Jeremy Camp, gaining more experience than many artists do in a decade.
Her career began to flourish in college when she met Matthew West at a songwriting conference, which eventually led to a publishing deal and her debut independent EP, 2018's Crazy Beautiful You. Along with releasing two Christmas tunes that same year, she is the first artist to sign with West's record label Story House Collective, a joint venture with Provident Label Group.
Since Crawford started writing music, she was quickly recognized for her gift of writing grounded and honest lyrics, making her feel more like a friend, more approachable than untouchable. Her honesty and passion for not being enough, yet being enough in Christ, is the message she is called to share, particularly to young women. Now, as a Christian artist who has the opportunity to record and perform songs to encourage girls everywhere, Crawford has certainly discovered what that calling from God would look like.
