For Lindsay, the song is even more personal. If things had been a different way, Lindsay may not have even had the opportunity to record the song at all.

Several months ago, Lindsay started feeling ill. She went to the hospital and doctors diagnosed her with pneumonia. “After antibiotics didn’t work, I went to another hospital where they did some emergency tests,” she says. “When the nurse came back with the results, she said, ‘Don’t move. Don’t move at all. You have a blood clot and we don’t want you to move’,” recalls Lindsay. After taking medication, the clot disappeared, but Lindsay knows that God saved her life. She says, “I was doing all sorts of things during that two-week period; I was traveling and ministering and the clot could have broken at any time. I know it was God who protected me. That one incident made me realize that I don’t have time to waste. I must share the songs that the Lord has given me.”

Slaton is prepping the release of a sophomore CD. As yet untitled, the project is chock full of songs of encouragement and hope and is expected to drop in fall 2018. Lindsay Slaton has been singing in her local Washington, DC area for a variety of events. Recently, she was the featured artist for Baltimore’s Heaven 600’s Unplugged Event. She’s also made television appearances on networks and programs, including TBN, Babbie’s House, Atlanta Live and Club 36.

Her most recent release, “Paid It All”, is moving up the BDS charts and was chosen as the “Pick Hit of the Week” on The Brother Marlon Show on SGN The Light. The music video has gained attention nationwide as well.

“Joy” is available for purchase on iTunes, Amazon and other digital retailers. For more information about Lindsay Slaton, log on to Connect with Lindsay on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
