Judith Ann Gayle is a prime example of God's ability to transform brokenness to wholesomeness and a life of despair to a life of divine purpose. Born in Clarendon, Jamaica, Judith did not have the privilege of completing High School, but that did not deter her from successfully pursuing higher education in later years. She attended the Jamaica Open Bible Institute from 2010-2012 and completed her studies when she moved to New York, graduating from Canon University with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Pastoral Theology in 2014.
Since childhood, Judith has had a myriad of experiences that helped to shape her radical identity and uncompromising love for God. She found solace in music and began a journey in the 1980’s, singing background for secular artists such as Richie Stephens, collaborating with Lady Saw and she was signed to a company in Atlanta, Georgia called Jabboy Productions. In 1998, she placed second in the National Popular Song Festival, with her song “Me Na Lef Jamaica”, written by her mother Olive Porter. Judith rose to prominence as a cabaret singer in Jamaica’s most prestigious hotels.
In 1999, she was invited by a friend to a church in Clarendon and it was there that her life changed as God captivated her heart. Like any diamond in the rough, her early years as a young Christian brought seemingly unbearable servings of loss, heartache, despair, fear, pain, struggle and suffering. Having been stripped of everything and isolated in misery, she was forced to grab hold of a holy boldness in God, who taught her how to smile again. In 2007, Judith Gayle, as an international gospel singer/songwriter, was nominated for the “Mahalia Jackson” Award in Canada; in 2009, she captured the Mega Jamz Female “Gospel Artist Award of the Year” in Jamaica; in 2011, she copped the Atlanta Gospel Music Award for “Best Collaboration” and in 2015, she was awarded the “Trail Blazer Award” from Gospel Vibes Radio in Connecticut. A highlight of the year 2015 was her appearance at the famed Apollo Theater in Harlem, New York, singing alongside some of America’s greats, including Vickie Winans. In 2016, she was nominated for the Sterling Gospel Music Awards in Jamaica.
Judith Gayle has been churning out great gospel music over the years, inspiring millions with hits such as ‘The Sun Shines Again’, ‘Bigger God’, ‘Survivor’, ‘Things Already Betta’, ‘Thank You Lord’, ‘I Say Jesus’ and ‘Stay with God’. The mega hit ‘Give Me Jesus’ has become quite an anthem at concerts, on radio stations and on YouTube, where it has amassed over 7 million views, an achievement that is second to none among Caribbean gospel artists. Judith proudly, but modestly, declares that she writes most of her songs. She says her songs are born out of her relationship with God and what God has done for her. Her six albums to date include: The Sun Shines Again (2003); Broken to be Blessed (2005); Designed to Worship (2009); I Believe (2012); It’s Gonna Be Alright (2013) and The Winner in Me (2016). Indeed, her music speaks volumes to the fact that God is a Deliver and Healer of wounded souls. People have testified that her music has prevented them from committing suicide. In fact, everyone who encounters her ministry is motivated to break free from ungodly patterns and embrace their God-given destiny. You will never get tired of hearing this versatile singer minister as unto the Lord. Pastor Donnie McClurkin dubbed her his Jamaican Whitney Houston and continues to tell others about her.
Evangelist Judith Gayle was ordained as a Minister in 2014 by Bishop Michael A. Frith of the
Family of Christ Church of God Ministries International in The Bronx, New York. She serves as Worship Leader at The Temple of Restoration in Brooklyn, New York, under the leadership of Bishop Angelo Barbosa. In addition to her ministry of singing, Judith is also an author and humanitarian. She has published two inspiring books: ‘Broken to be Blessed; Destined to Win’ and ‘This is Real, Take the Mask Off’. She also has a children’s book on the way. Judith delights in helping people and does so readily and without seeking credit. Just recently, she led a campaign to secure much needed donations in cash and kind for hurricane victims.
This Woman of God stands on Philippians 4:13 and refuses to settle for mediocrity and pretentiousness. In recognizing and highlighting the gift of God, Judith believes if you allow God to mold you, you will be the vessel He calls you to be. She is living proof of the life transforming power of the Eternal Father, which is not subject to boundaries such as color, race or creed.
Judith Gayle was blessed during a ceremony in New York to be named an Ambassador of the United Nations and conferred with an honorary Doctorate Degree by the Word of Life Christian Fellowship. Word of Life is the only Full Gospel Organization to be accredited by the United Nations Economic and Social Council, the UN being the highest international body.
