Who Is Tarsha McMillian?

IMG-0696If you have been following my social media then you know that last week was epic for me! If you don’t know anything about me I am sure you know this one thing…I LOVE ANTHONY HAMILTON! My family has put up with my borderline obnoxious behavior regarding this man for a long time, so it was no surprise when my cousin found out he would be in town and said I should go. So, I went. I enter a room full of people who all seem to know each other and they are talking about the real reason they are there. They are there because Tarsha McMillian is releasing her single. I am there to meet Anthony Hamilton. The room darkens and we take our seats, by this time I’ve spotted Mr. Hamilton and I’m not taking my eyes off him. There’s a video playing on the wall entitled “Who is Tarsha McMillian?!” Ms. McMillian is passionate, driven, the bestest friend anyone could ever ask for, she is an amazing mother, she is giving, she is full of purpose, and oh SHE CAN SANG! These are all words people in the video used to describe Ms. McMillian. The spot light hits the stage and she enters the room, a gorgeous chocolate woman, with a fierce hair cut, she is small in stature and her voice is as sweet as apple pie. She thanks everyone for attending and then the band starts to play…

The little sweet as apple pie voice turns into this monstrous, larger than life, melodic, seasoned, gospel, rock, soul, supercalifragilisticexpialidocious, dope a$$ SANGER! There is a difference between a singer and a sanger, this woman can sang. What happened next will surprise anyone who knows me, I lost track of Anthony Hamilton! I know right what is the world coming too. I couldn’t help it, I couldn’t take my eyes off of what I was witnessing. Tarsha, because now we friends, has a way of drawing you in, making you want to know more about the stories she is telling through song. She is humble and gracious, with some funk on the side. You get so lost in her captivating voice that at one point it feels like every song is about you or something you went through. I live for moments like that when I connect with an artist and feel like they are speaking into my life.  But where is Anthony Hamilton? Right where my eye left him last enjoying this magical moment with the rest of Tarsha’s fans, now including me!

Who is Tarsha McMillian? She is transparent, thankful, an overcomer, a believer, a fighter. She is a daughter, a sister, a divorcee. Tarsha shared a powerful testimony during this intimate experience, one that touched my soul and caused me to reflect on the things in my life, the waiting periods in my life when I wasn’t sure how things were going to work out or even if they would. Tarsha was broken but healed, she is a personal praise break (I loved this description). The list can go on and on about who Tarsha McMillan is, but the one thing I’m sure everyone who was there that evening can agree on is that she is definitely READY!

If you want to know more about who Tarsha McMillian is check our her single “I’m Ready” on Itunes.

Now you may be asking yourself, this woman who loves Anthony Hamilton didn’t get to meet him. Well you’d be wrong…IMG-0697

Side note: My favorite Tarsha McMillian song is Silence Kills, look into it!
