About ShineMK

ShineMK is a savvy, all-female pop band from Milton Keynes, UK who base their ministry upon the scripture Matthew 5:16. From compassion to commitment, from humor to creativity, each member of the group plays a significant role in making ShineMK the "light" they were called to be.



Making a childhood dream come true, Natasha, Hanne, Loretta, and Nicola have already influenced many young people, by example and through their ministry, to turn their eyes upon Jesus. Diving right into the heart of secondary schools in the UK, ShineMK focuses on winning the hearts of one of the largest youth populations in the area. Through weekly ministries filled with morning assemblies, lunchtime and evening concerts, and one-on-one witnessing, ShineMK offers friendship and the Truth in a non-threatening way.

Each member of the group grew up longing to become singers and dancers, but when they turned their lives over to God, each at an early age, the opportunity to integrate their two loves in life became a reality. Two years following their training at the School of Creative Ministries, a school where the girls studied the art of becoming Christian performers, Loretta and Natasha focused on praying and planning for the future.

Loretta Andrews, former member of World Wide Message Tribe, and happily married identical twin Natasha Andrews, began with a dream, further explaining other "Do It Right" lyrics: ...we can begin to make it happen, if we would open up our eyes.... They then added to the vision of ShineMK Nicola Rodgers, a rambunctious redhead, and Hanne Pettersen of Norway, who was once destined to be in a wheelchair due to severe problems with her legs. Like Hanne, who now dances successfully in ShineMK, each member of the band has a unique story to tell and a true desire to share what God has done for them. This not only comes across on the album but can certainly be seen in their hearts.
