Charity LockhartMuch more than a vocalist
Charity Lockhart has been entertaining audiences since she was six. As the daughter of a Pentecostal pastor and a music teacher mother, Charity grew up immersed in gospel music. As a young girl she studied violin, piano, classical and jazz vocals.
Charity studied music performance and music therapy in college, while winning the title “Miss Wright State University” and first runner-up to “Miss Ohio.” After college she performed in Italy, Germany, and Switzerland.
Through faith, she and her two young children left Ohio with nothing but her instruments, $100 and trash bag filled with clothes. She drove to Phoenix, living in her car and singing in nightclubs until she made enough to rent an apartment. “It was a humbling experience, but I learned about the powers within me; dreaming, hoping, praying and expecting a good outcome every day.”
Charity wasn’t down for long, quickly rebuilding her career. Now she splits her time between home and overseas, where she tours and teaches both on water and land.
Through the ups and downs, music gave her strength. “I believe in the power of music to heal and change lives. I’ve learned to live in love and enjoy every moment with gratitude,” she says.
Charity pulls from her varied experiences to create music that’s soothing to the mind, body and soul. “When people come to see me perform, no doubt they’ll be entertained,” she laughs, “But they’ll also feel love, joy and peace. I always tell my audiences, expect to be transformed.”
Charity Lockhart is a captivating performer, moving audiences large and small with her inspirational songs and charismatic personality. Though musically rooted in gospel, jazz and classically trained, the versatile and deeply talented artist performs pop, R&B, Country, Rock and blues with equal grace -Charity’s spirit cannot be defined by a single genre.
Charity Lockhart’s national and international live shows, featuring full band, back-up singers and dancers, offer much more than an evening’s entertainment. This gifted singer-songwriter weaves the gold and silver threads of her joys and sorrows into a shimmering musical tapestry. Charity’s powerful performance takes her audiences on a transformational, healing journey that leaves them uplifted and believing that love truly can conquer all.
