With her infectious energy, empathetic spirit, and inspirational messages she offers a refreshing antidote to the self-help, talking head experts and "Oprah theology." For the past fifteen years she has reached many throughout the southeast with her positive messages about God’s love, His grace, and the freedom we have in Jesus Christ. She has been very instrumental in the field of praying for transformation of the whole person; body, soul, and spirit. (robinbertram.org)

Christian Artist, Worship Leader and Songwriter. Raised in a strong
Christian home, it wasn’t until the age of fourteen when Shelly’s father tragically died from cancer that Shelly met God for the first time in a real and personal way. During that experience Shelly began writing songs and felt God’s call on her life to ministry. After moving to Nashville and graduating from Belmont University in 2007, Shelly recorded her first independent album entitled Wash It Away comprised of ten original songs. In August 2008, Shelly's song "Power Of The Cross" was awarded 2008 Song of the Year by the Gospel Music Association, and her song "Draw Near" was awarded 2008 Scripture Song of the Year. In June 2009, Shelly released her second album entitled Mosaic of Grace, comprised of eleven original songs. In August 2010, multi Dove Award-winning Christian artist Natalie Grant recorded and released Shelly's song "Power Of The Cross" on her latest album.

Shelly spends her time writing songs, leading worship regularly at her home church, and traveling the country sharing her music. Shelly and her husband Jack live in Franklin, TN. (shellyejohnson.com)
