About Martha Munizzi
Award-winning gospel performer Martha Munizzi has spent her entire life in ministry. This powerhouse vocalist has built a large international following through her soulful and passionate style of praise and worship.
Born in central Florida to a religious musical family, Martha and her twin sister Mary started touring the country with their parents singing at the age of eight. As a teenager, Martha's vocal skills and songwriting ability became evident, and it soon became clear that God was birthing in her a desire to lead others into His presence as she began to lead worship at her home church in Central Florida.
Singing professionally for well over a decade, Martha's first album, 2002's Say the Name, came out on Point to Point, and was followed up with two self-released records, The Best Is Yet to Come (2003) and When He Came (2004), both of which debuted high on Billboard's gospel chart.
Also, in 2005, Munizzi was double nominated for a Dove Award for "Best Contemporary Gospel Song of the Year" for the singles "Because Of Who You Are" and "Say The Name." In addition, Munizzi was nominated for two 2005 Stellar Awards for "New Artist of the Year" and "Female Vocalist of the Year." As a result, Martha made history as being the first non African-American female to win a Stellar Award when she was presented with the 2005 Stellar for "Best New Artist of the Year." With her music and her ministry, Martha has succeeded in blending several different musical styles to form her own unique sound.
Munizzi was nominated for a Grammy for Best Traditional Soul Gospel Album in 2006 and also released a CD/DVD set, No Limits: Live.
Change the World, recorded live at The Gathering Place Worship Center in Lake Mary, Florida was Martha's next release in 2008. This album asserts itself right out of the gate as a praise-and-worship monster of its own. "Invincible God" sizzles, "Nothing Can Separate Me" uplifts, "Favor of God" brings on the funk, and "More than Enough" recalls the beach. As the disc winds down, the ballads have a warm, invitational tone, as if they've been fashioned with church purists in mind. "The King" and "Habitation," in particular, sound like classics in the making—Richard Smallwood would be proud.
Among her smash radio hits are "Shout", "Say The Name", "Glorious" and "Because of Who You Are."
Martha is also a gifted teacher in the area of praise and worship, and travels the world encouraging others to seek a new level of worship in their lives. Martha's message is clear, "My deepest desire is to transcend cultural, generational, and denominational boundaries, and to bring all people together through worship."
