The 116 Life Ep. 63: Trusting in God’s Timing with Lee Vasi

Welcome to another inspiring episode of Reach Records The 116 Life, on Holy Culture Radio, Sirius XM Channel 140. This week, Meah Evans had the pleasure of sitting down with the incredibly talented musician and singer, Lee Vasi, to dive deep into her life and the melodies that define it. From God to Broadway, we examine some of Lee’s most impactful moments and how they shaped her faith.

Overcoming Adversity with Grace

Lee’s recent triumphs in the music industry are a testament to her unwavering spirit. Despite facing significant health challenges, she emerged stronger and more focused. Her story is one of resilience; a hiatus from music due to mental health concerns led to a period of self-discovery and spiritual growth. Lee’s journey back to her passion is a powerful reminder of the strength we find in vulnerability.

A Symphony of Early Beginnings

Lee’s artistic roots run deep, with her family’s influence introducing her to the world of music. Her early forays into theater and Broadway, particularly her audition for The Lion King, set the stage for a career that would blend her love for performance with her Christian upbringing. The support of her siblings and the shared bond over music became the harmony to her melody.

The Industry Through Her Eyes

The conversation takes us through the intricacies of Lee’s experiences in the music industry. From the unwavering support of her parents to the creative challenges posed by the pandemic, Lee’s narrative is rich with insight. Her song “Teach Me” epitomizes the essence of her art—vulnerability and love.

God and Spiritual Revelations

Lee’s transition from theater to her own artistry is marked by intensive vocal training and a commitment to authenticity. Her new music, especially the song “Your Will,” is an intimate reflection of her personal revelations. Her excitement for the year ahead is palpable, as is her journey through the Bible, which has deepened her understanding of Yahwehs’ nature.

In this interview, Lee Vasi’s story unfolds as a beautiful blend of personal growth, artistic commitment, and a faith that resonates through her music. Join me in celebrating her journey and the lessons we can all learn from her dedication to her craft.
