Lakeesha Rice born in Yonkers, New York, currently residing in Greensboro N.C, started singing at the tender age of three. Afterwards she made her way to the city doing competitions all over New York. She is a nine time winner of the famous amateur night at the Apollo Theater. She made her way into the industry when she was just fourteen year old. She was signed by Mariah Carey at the age of fourteen, at which point her label unfortunately folded. That didn't stop this young, ambitious artist. She was then discovered by RCA records where she signed a deal with them; she went by the name of "Keesha". She released singles that hit the Billboard charts, made her appearance on the monumental stage of SOUL TRAIN, and made appearances on Teen Summit for the network BET. She sang the “National Anthem” at WNBA games a few times. Facing a few plights in the music industry, Keesha became discouraged and decided it was time to take a break. After taking some time from her career, she had her first daughter. Two years later, she started back with her career. Still possessing her amazing talent, she was signed to Capital Records. When she was twenty-five she released a single with Jim Jones and Young Joc called "Sex wit my ex." At this point she went by the name "Lil Bit" to get away from her past. However God had other plans for her life because that deal fell through. She met her boyfriend Anthony who is now her husband, and she now has two beautiful children. She got saved and accepted Jesus Christ as her Lord and savior. She no longer sings secular music because God had another calling on her life. She moved on to be a top seven contestant on the international T.V. show Sunday Best on BET. Lakeesha is now a member of The Liberation Church with her leaders Apostle Keith Ellison & Lady Apostle Ericca Ellison. Stay tuned for upcoming events and shows. Stream her new album “ The Bridge”.

My mission is to save one soul with the gift that God has given me. I don't care about the fame, popularity. All I care about are those who are lost and the ones that God has assigned to my sound. I don't want to be like no one else. The gospel is about spreading the good news, and that's exactly what I'm going to continue to do. What you do for God lasts.
