If you attend a church service in Atlanta on any given Sunday you may have heard this song: "Break Every Chain."
The woman behind this Billboard chart-topping song is Grammy Award winning gospel singer Tasha Cobbs.
On this day in 1981, Cobbs was born in Jesup, Georgia.
The singer, who was the most streamed gospel artist of 2016, has attracted the attention of another entertainer by the name of Onika Maraj, better known as Nicki Minaj.
Minaj took to Instagram earlier this summer to say she’s a fan and wants to make music with Cobbs. Minaj says she listens to gospel more than all other genres in her personal time.
When Cobbs is not traveling the country with her music, you can find her at dReam Center in Atlanta where she serves as a pastor.
BET, Thank u for "Celebration of Gospel 2014" - best show I've seen in a long time. I fell in love with Tasha Cobbs and Jonathan McReynolds
