The West-Memphis native has been singing gospel music since the age of five.
"Actually my mom and dad, they heard me singing around the house and were like, it's something that God has given her," Carr said of her vocal savvy.
From home, Carr would go on to use her God-given talent in her local church, and then around the country.
Without any formal training, her father Allen Carr said he knew early on his daughter's gift was something special.
"One day her and her brothers and sisters were singing and she stopped them and said, ' All are singing out of key,'" he said.
He went on to say, "It just caught us off guard and it was so amazing to see a five-year-old (say) hey, we're out of key, let's get this thing right."
Not only has Jekalyn Carr met gospel music greats, she has sung with them, including the artist she most admires.
"It has to be Kim Burrell," she said. "She's my favorite."
In addition to her music, Jekalyn Carr is also a motivational speaker. She receives so many requests for appearances, her parents decided it was best to home school her to accommodate her rigorous schedule.
"My parents, they have invested a lot into me and into my ministry and you think, wow, it's just amazing to have the parents that I have."
She has already released one CD, "Promise", and is hard at work on her next project.
Jekalyn Carr said singing is her passion, and it is what she plans to do for a long time to come.
"I remember telling my dad that singing was my passion. This is what I always wanted to do, and I also want to be a fashion designer and act," she admitted while laughing.
Join us tonight. D
Let's welcome Jekayln Carr to the NiACOM Platform!

Sheena O. Murray - R&B Artist 3:15pm
Without echoing words that were said before or painting a picture that you may have eyeballed numerous times, we’d like to introduce to you: Sheena O. Murray. Her story did not begin at the age of five as a musical child prodigy, nor was she a member of the church choir, belting out notes every Sunday. Hers is a simple story, not one of particular intrigue or “wow”. It is a story of a girl who meets music, falls in love with music, marries music, bears the seed of this union with melodies and lyrical prowess.
A Jamaican native, Sheena O. Murray migrated to Brooklyn, New York at the age of five and then moved to Florida at the age of nine. She began her musical journey while in High School as a theater geek performing in stage plays and musicals. She then transitioned, after those four years of campy musical theater performances, to vocal endeavors.

Original founder and leader of
“The Floaters” with Miss Diamond
The man that organized and fronted the multi-platinum selling vocal group from Detroit has musically vented!
Larry has spent the last 15 years writing his testimony and his latest accomplishment “The Essence of Grace” is his musical story come to fruition.
The Floaters were an African-American R&B vocal group, from the Sojourner Truth housing projects in Detroit, Michigan, that formed in 1976. The group are best known for their 1977 song "Float On", which reached #2 on the Billboard Hot 100, #1 on the UK Singles Chart, and #5 on the Irish Singles Chart.
The band was formed by the former The Detroit Emeralds' singer James Mitchell, with his brother Paul Mitchell, Larry Cunningham, Charles Clark, and the unrelated Ralph Mitchell. Most of The Floaters were from the Sojourner Truth housing project on Detroit's Eastside.
James Mitchell wrote the band's one major hit, "Float On", with Arnold Ingram and Marvin Willis. The lyrics spotlight each member of the band, who introduced themselves with their name, astrological sign, and ideal type of romantic partner.The song was produced by Woody Wilson. It became a world wide hit in 1977 on ABC Records, reaching #1 on the US R&B chart, #2 on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart, and #1 in the UK Singles Chart (for a single week in August that year).
Follow-ups such as "You Don't Have to Say You Love Me" (#28 Billboard R&B chart) were not as successful. The group continued to record, releasing four studio albums over the next few years.
A new recording of the song "Float On" was recorded in 2001 for the album Still Standing by the group Full Force.
This song was also sampled by Canadian hip hop recording duo Dream Warriors, in their song of the same name
