WHO IS ANASTASIA OSHO?
Beaumont, TX native, Anastasia Osho, is a Christian & Contemporary Gospel Singer/Songwriter. She is passionate about inspiring people to have a closer relationship with Jesus Christ (Yeshua Messiah) so that none should perish
(2 Peter 3:9 KJV), but that all would come to the knowledge and understanding of God.
Anastasia uses music to convey the message that every person is fearfully and wonderfully made (Psalms 139: 14 KJV) and has a purpose beyond their imagination.
Anastasia desires to be the voice of the voiceless and uses the music that God gives her to heal the brokenhearted.
Anastasia is a survivor in every sense of the word. The word “survivor” in the Webster dictionary is defined as someone who “continues to function or prosper despite”. After surviving childhood sexual assault and conquering cancer twice as an adult, she has proven that the healing power of God still works in today’s turbulent society.
Because of the trauma she endured as a child, Anastasia wants to raise awareness about childhood sexual assault and encourage survivors to get the spiritual and professional help they need. She wants to educate the community on the life-long effects abuse has on adult survivors in hopes that education will lessen the occurrences of abuse. Her ultimate goal is to create a safer world, where children and adult survivors can thrive without the shame and guilt of their past.
Music is Anastasia’s vehicle to relay the message of healing, hope, forgiveness and freedom.
Anastasia has been writing songs since childhood. At the age of 12, Anastasia pinned "Just Keep on Tryin'"; a song she wrote to encourage herself while enduring the pain she suffered at that time. She literally, "sang her way out of a depression". Music became a powerful tool for Anastasia to communicate with God and uplift her spirit.
Now, Anastasia writes songs to minister to the hurt and the lost. Her sound is considered Contemporary Gospel/ Inspirational and is a blend of pop, rock, and soul. Her music is inspired by the Holy Spirit of God. Her music style is influenced by Stevie Wonder, The Winans Family and 80’s pop music.
Her most recent project was a collaboration with Nigerian Gospel sensation, Kenny K'ore on her original song, "Holy Spirit Fall on Me". Anastasia wrote this song after experiencing a prolonged darkness in her life, following a series of tragic events that challenged her faith. She longed to return to the days when the Spirit fell fresh on her. It was in this spirit that the song she calls, “a repentance prayer” was pinned. "Holy Spirit Fall on Me" was awarded the "Honorable Mention Songwriting Award" in the Song of the Year Contest for 2014. The award winning Nigeria-based producer, Wilson Joel, produced the track.
Anastasia began her singing career while in attendance at Stephen F Austin State University in Nacogdoches, TX. Though, she has been singing in church since the age of 7, Anastasia didn’t think of herself as a singer. God surrounded her with wonderful friends who encouraged her to explore her singing talent.
Anastasia has used her talent as a singer, to serve as Praise and Worship leader for three different start-up churches. One in Minneapolis, MN, and the other two in Houston, TX. She's also ministered in several locations in Nigeria.
Now, Anastasia is looking to go deeper in her knowledge of God and Christ and to become a more effective minister of the Gospel. As a prophet once stated to her, “You’re not a singer. You’re a minister, who just so happens to sing.” Anastasia has always stated that “the message is more important than the music”. The music is only a vehicle into the souls of those who are listening to it.
Anastasia aspires to collaborate with local and international artist alike who are interested in spreading the message of Christ to the hurt and broken.
Anastasia now resides in the greater Houston area with her loving husband and wonderful son.
