Meet the Founder of Ignite Your Light Kidz
A Jersey girl in the south?
Sounds like the plot of a fish-out-of-water movie, but it's real life for Whitney Lynn. Whitney Lynn is the CEO and founder of Ignite Your Light Ministries, Inc., a non-profit organization to ignite the light of Jesus in children globally with an uncompromising faith in Christ. Whitney is an ordained minister, singer/songwriter, and actress who is deeply rooted in a musical theatre background and the pop music of her home state. Branson and Nashville have had a huge influence on her style as well and have opened her eyes to Americana, thus broadening her horizon in the genre fields.
Whitney has hosted and sang at Disney's Night of Joy for TBN, the largest Christian television network. She has sung backup for major artists, such as Donnie McClurkin, Michael English, and Guy Penrod on several Praise the Lord episodes for TBN. She has appeared on several TV stations and opened for Sheila Ray Charles - the daughter of legendary Ray Charles. Whitney also toured to India where she performed in front of 30,000 people. She continues to perform in front of thousands of people today.
At TBN'S Holy Land Experience, the artist has sold thousands of copies of her album in just 1 year, as well as performed her own original kids' show, "Ignite Your Light". She was the children's director at the park and enjoyed teaching the kids who participated in her show about the love of Jesus and the salvation He gives.
What makes Whitney so unique as a performer is the dynamic mix of influences which you hear in her music. Her angelic voice can be heard on the radio and the web. She has also co-written and recorded songs with Grammy Award winning producer, Dru Castro.
Whitney was nominated for "Best Female Performer" for the IAAPA Award. Only 1 out of 3 females in the entire world receive nominations. The IAAPAs are a worldwide competition for theme parks. Some of those parks include Disney World, Sea World, Universal Studios Japan, Europa-Park in Rust in Germany, Disneyland Paris, Hershey Park, Dollywood, Sixflags, and more.
People are watching expectantly as she does more and more.
Her most recent project is launching her new kids' TV show pilot, "Ignite Your Light Kidz", in winter of 2015.
Her love for God is evident, not only in her music, but in her actions as well. Whitney strives to glorify God with everything she does.
