Though few things are more unsettling than stepping out of your comfort zone,  nothing can compare to the opportunities that come from total surrender to God’s call. Ask Karyn Williams. She left behind friends and family to move to Nashville, and God has used her obedience to open doors she could never have imagined. Ever since signing a record deal in 2011 and becoming label mates with Christian artists such as the Newsboys & Jaci Velasquez, Karyn has quickly become one of the Christian music community's most talked about new artists. Already called "this generation's Amy Grant," Karyn was featured in Billboard magazine as one of the “Best Bets” of 2012, and other gatekeepers are singing her praises as well. Yet it’s not industry accolades that fuel Karyn's artistry; it’s her desire to touch people with the good news of God’s grace and mercy.

"My message is about freedom and hope," Karyn says. "There's a freedom that comes only through Christ that I want everyone in the world to understand. That's why I write, and that's why I sing." And that's what we'll discuss during Karyn's interview!

After graduating from the University of Florida, Karyn moved to Nashville to pursue a career in music. In 2010, she released to radio her first single Rejoice, and in August 2012 she released her Inpop Records debut Only You. Karyn will also release a music video for her song Just May Be in conjunction with the Congressional Coalition on Adoption Institute (CCAI).

Karyn lives in Nashville with her songwriter/producer husband, Brian White. She is the eldest daughter of Orlando Magic Senior Vice President and founder Pat Williams. Her international family includes 19 children, fourteen of whom are adopted.
