The music that Jokia writes and sings is true, genuine worship music. When people hear her music, they instantly feel the intense joy of worship that she felt throughout her faith. Believing every word with all of her heart, it's hard not to walk away from a Jokia song without feeling the love and grace of Jesus Christ.
Jokia has brought a fresh new sound to Christian Contemporary Music (CCM) today. In a relatively short amount of time, she has invited listeners to engage in worship in a way that few other artists can. She has a gift for singing and songwriting, and is determined to share it with as many people as possible.
Born and raised in California, Jokia fell in love with music at the mere age of 12. Always in tune with music and its performance, she knew it was her undoubted calling as she began to sing and write songs. Presently 28-years old today, Jokia sits atop a musical career that is a testament to her musical passions and tenacious drive for making it all a reality.
Jokia attended high school in San Diego, California after moving from Compton at a young age. Upon graduation, she went into the Army and served rom 2006 to 2010. Whilst in the Army, Jokia gave her life to Christ. She also joined the Army Soldier show, toured the country and Europe for 8-months, and ordered herself a guitar.
After leaving the Army, Jokia attended her church at Shiloh Worship Center in Belton, Texas and played acoustic guitar for the parish. Her performance abilities began to garner her attention and during this time, Jokia had the honor of sharing the stage with the likes of Tasha Cobbs, Jessica Reedy, Casey J, Vanessa Bell Armstrong, Brianna "Bri" Babinauex, and Willie Moore Jr.
Jokia's music is produced by Tedy P, the same producer behind Kierra Sheard and many other major Christian recording artists in the game today.
She released her very first single, Amen, May 2016 and has recently finished recording her first EP, to be released June 12, 2017.

Jasper is a classically trained musician and composer. The youngest of seven siblings, he started studying classical music at the age of 7 at the suggestion of his mother, Elizabeth. After graduating from high school in Cincinnati, he moved to New York to study music composition at the Juilliard School of Music in New York City. He continued his studies at C.W. Post, Long Island University, New York, where he studied with jazz pianist and composer Billy Taylor and received a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in music composition. He subsequently earned a Juris Doctorate degree from Concord University School of Law.
The Jasper and Isley families lived in the same apartment complex in Cincinnati. While still living in Cincinnati, Jasper's older sister, Elaine, married Rudolph Isley. His vocal trio formed by the three older brothers, Rudolph, Ronald and O'Kelly, subsequently relocated to Teaneck, New Jersey. While living temporarily in Teaneck with his sister as a young teenager and attending Teaneck High School, Jasper and the two younger Isleys, Marvin and Ernie, formed a band, "The Jazzman Trio" with Jasper on keyboards, Ernie on drums, and Marvin on bass. The band played local gigs in the New Jersey area. Along with Jasper, Marvin and Ernie also attended C.W. Post College in New York. While still in college, Jasper, Ernie, and Marvin toured with the older Isley Brothers and played on the earlier recordings, including "It's Your Thing". Jasper's first of many songs written for the Isley Brothers was "Love Put Me on a Corner" released on the Isleys' Brother, Brother, Brother album in 1972.
In 1973, Jasper, Marvin, and Ernie brought the songwriting and musical component to the older Isley Brothers' vocal trio, transitioning the Isley Brothers into a self-produced, self-contained six-member R&B/Funk band. Their debut release during this time was the 3+3 album. Although all six members of the Isley Brothers are credited as songwriters of the music from the 3+3 era, this was a business arrangement and does not reflect the creative reality.Jasper was the primary songwriter, producer, and arranger of The Isley Brothers music from 1973 (3+3) through 1983 (Between the Sheets), with contributions by younger members Ernie and Marvin Isley. Between The Sheets was their final album as a six-member group. Jasper's arrangements, instrumentation, and unique chord structures as a classically trained musician have been credited as the foundation of the legendary "Isley Brothers sound", which Jasper has continued in his own solo recordings.

Dr. Lipman truly has a unique medical practice. He has helped in the development of a revolutionary medical breakthrough for the treatment of symptomatic uterine fibroids. The procedure is called UFE (Uterine Fibroid Embolization). He performed the first UFE in Georgia almost 25 years ago and despite its long track record of safety and efficacy, most women suffering with fibroids never hear about UFE. UFE is completely nonsurgical and outpatient. The recovery is 5-7 days and patients come home the same day as the procedure with just a bandaid (and their uterus). If you know anyone suffering with fibroids, please have them go to ATLii.com to learn more about UFE.
