Zach:  Sharron, would you bring my readers up to date on your gospel music career and winning female vocalist of the year?

Sharron Kay King:  I thank the Lord that He is able to work through me in touching the hearts and lives. For the past 23 years I’ve been a willing servant with a desire to reach the hurting through the words of my songs & testimony.

I’ve won a few awards through the years as well as being nominated for things as soloist, songwriter, mainstream artist & female soloist.  The one that I cherish most and means more to me than any of the others is receiving, The Award of Excellence in Music Ministry.

Zach:  Yes, I am sure that was extremely exciting for you!  Sharron, if you had to choose just one of the many wonderful songs that you have recorded, what would it be?

Sharron Kay King:  Probably My Best Friend. This song was my first attempt at songwriting after being saved and will always be the one that’s dearest to my heart.

“My family had given up on me and my own mother disowned me.”

Zach:  Wow, it’s one of my favorites too.  Are you planning a big Western United States tour for this summer?

Sharron Kay King:  As a matter of fact, it is in the planning stages now. In 2014, dates are being added to my schedule for June to minister in Texas & Oklahoma. I am also planning on visiting Ruidoso, New Mexico for the first time.

Zach:  Yes!  I will be so glad to get to meet you and hear you sing in person when you are in concert here at 1st Southern here in Ruidoso!

Sharron, could you give the readers a little background on yourself and how you came to saving faith in our Lord, Jesus Christ?

Sharron Kay King:  Zach, my life was nothing short of ending in 1987. I was 25 years old, a single mother of 3, a drug addict as well as an alcoholic.

I had nothing.

My family had given up on me and my own mother disowned me.

Looking up from the bottom I felt there was no hope for me. I was searching for answers to no avail. Deep in my heart I always desired to be a good mother and good person and most of all, a good daughter. I was lost.

After hitting rock bottom, the words of a Sunday school song came back to my memory. My granny taught it to me as a 5 year old girl.  I had been privileged to attend Sunday school with her— I think—about 3 times one summer.

Anyway, the words to Jesus Loves Me began flooding through my mind. The song’s melody would wake me up in the middle of the night and it would haunt me during the day.

I began wondering who this Jesus was! Conviction then set in on my heart and I thank the Lord for conviction!

Long story short, I found myself at an altar on July 25, 1987.  I completely surrendered my will to Jesus Christ that night.  He saved me, forgave me, and allowed me to feel a love that I had never known before.

I was free from every addiction of nearly 14 years. Oh!  The blood of Jesus that still washes white as snow!

Zach:  That is an awesome testimony, Sharron—thank you for sharing that with my readers!

How has God moved in your life since you have confessed Him as your personal Lord and Savior?

Sharron Kay King:  God has moved in my life in more ways than I can imagine. He totally restored my relationship with my mother and gave me a new lease on life. Allowed me to be that good mom that I always dreamed of being.

Not only did He save me that night, He has kept me safe in Him for 26 years.

Zach:  That is so inspiring.  You now share this amazing testimony and sing such inspiring music about our Lord!

Sharron, what is it like on the road—you know—meeting and greeting your fans all over the country?

Does it give you an opportunity to personally witness to people?

Sharron Kay King:   My life on the road! Ministry is a very lonely place, but a rewarding place.

It is a humbling experience to be in a service and begin to sing only to hear people singing my songs and worshiping Jesus along with me.  I remember one day as I was going through a check-out line with my son.

The cashier kept looking at me to the point I began to feel uncomfortable. She then looked up at me and asked, “Are you Sharron Kay King?”

I was shocked.

I answered and said, “Yes, I am.”

She smiled and started telling me what my music has meant to her.  My son looked at me as we walked away and said, “That was pretty cool!”

I walked away from there feeling very good.

Zach:   It’s so interesting hearing about life on the road for a professional singer and performer.  Thank you also for telling us about that encounter in the store!

You touch the lives of so many with your testimony and your Southern gospel music! Do you have any plans to release another album soon?

Sharron Kay King:  I’m praying right now about making my first Hymnal project. I love the songs of old. As a writer, I feel such conviction and compassion in the words from the old church songbooks.

It’s sad we don’t use them much anymore.

Zach:  I can hardly wait until THAT album hits the racks!  Sharron, if you could tell our audience only one thing about your life and career, what would be that one thing that stands out to you the most?

Sharron Kay King:  That I love the Lord, Zach. When I felt called into this ministry, I fought it. I honestly didn’t see what God could use with me.

Once I realized that I didn’t need a college education or a music degree, I realized that I just needed God to work through me.

It’s not about me or anything I am able to do.  It’s all about Him and His ability to take a broken vessel and mold us into a masterpiece.

Zach:  Thank you for a great interview, Sharron.  Would you mind if I place an audio file at the end of you singing, God’s Been Good?

He has certainly been good to you and I just want this interview to encourage people out there who don’t quite know where to start or how to turn to God?

Sharron Kay King:  Absolutely!  I would like to add that it doesn’t matter who you are, what you’ve done, or where you have been—Jesus loves you and He won’t give up on you!

Trust Him!

Zach:  Praise God for you, Sharron, and for the wonderful gift of music and vocals that so touch my heart and many millions as well!

Sharron Kay King: Thank you, Pastor Zach, for allowing God to use you in touching my life!
