Myrna Summers

Myrna's music is from the soul, scripturally based and delivered in a commanding, yet distinctive alto voice. Writing and performing enjoyable, impeccable gospel songs seem to come natural to the highly talented singer. After some formal training at the Toutorsky Academy of music, Myrna made a decision that would affect the direction her life would take. She decided to do more than just sing, but to deliver a message.


Myrna's first brush with success came in 1970 with "God Gave Me a Song" which received and overwhelming response and established Myrna as one of gospel's rising stars. The single gave Myrna her first Grammy Nomination and along with the recording form which it came, earned her song and album of hte year awards from the Gospel Music Workshop of America. The recognition of her talent didn't stop ther. Myrna was the recipient of the prestigious Mahalia Jackson Award. In 1979 she was again nominated for a Grammy Award for her song entitled "Give Me Something To Hold On To". In June, 1988 Myrna's album entitled "We Going To Make It", went on to become one of her best selling recordings to date. This recording was full of energy, dedication and conviction earning Myrna several Stellar award nominations, receiving the award for Best Traditional Gospel Artist (Female). Myrna has received numerous awards and citations from organizations both locally and nationally.


With this kind of quality material, it's no wonder why Myrna's live presentations are considered "must witness" events. Her original compositions, classic congregational renditions and songs of praise and worship are energetic, spiritual and most importantly from the heart.
