icon-newHeaven’s Song is a musical group of dedicated Christian women founded by Wanda Chandler in August of 2010. The group began singing as a praise and worship team at the Dupont Park Seventh-day Adventist Church. Under inspiration of the Holy Spirit, Wanda determined that there were greater opportunities to reach and bless people through the ministry of music. God opened doors and Heaven’s Song began to minister to the Washington DC Metropolitan area churches, women’s ministries and homeless ministries. Over the years the group has evolved and grown to seven voices which now includes: Tammy Woodfork and Fran Thorn (Sopranos), Lataynia Westney and LuValle Johnson (Altos), Wanda Chandler, Sandra Marley and Diedra Tramel (Tenors).  The group sang at Allegheny East Camp Meeting 2012 in Pine Forge, Pennsylvania, the General Conference Session 2015 in San Antonio, Texas and Oakwood University Alumni Weekend 2016 in Huntsville, Alabama.The group’s mission is to serve as ambassadors for God, glorifying His name and spreading the Good News of Jesus Christ through praise, prayer and song. 

Heaven’s Song is working on its first recording project estimated at $18,000. We need your help to partner with us. Your tax-deductible contributions will go toward our God inspired vision of being used as His vessels to reach many and bless them through our music ministry.

Metro Lifted Worship is a ministry of the Metropolitan Seventh-day Adventist Church committed to honoring God and proclaiming the gospel through music. The mission of the ministry is rooted in the commission given by Christ in John 12:32 which states, “And I, when I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all people to myself.” Our aim is to magnify Christ through our music, and to be a bless to those in our community through a number of outreach methods.

We are happy to partner with joDah Ministries in the proclamation of the gospel, and to assist in establishing a platform for future expansion of the ministry. In keeping with this vision, we are embarking on the production of our first musical project through collaboration with gifted producers, singers, and songwriters from within the Washington DC metropolitan area. The project will feature original works written and developed by members of the Metro Lifted Worship ministry and estimated at $20,000.

We need your help to partner with us. Your tax-deductible contributions will go toward making this vision a reality. For more information, please contact us at: [email protected]

BLQ, formerly known as the Breath of Life Quartet, was originally formed in 1974 by Walter Arties, who formed the group to support the Breath of Life Telecast. The original lineup of the group included Walter Arties, Phillip Grayson, Clyde Allen, and James Kyle, with Shelton Kilby originally serving as pianist and arranger before taking a vocal role on the group’s second recording. The original group released three albums – Plenty Good Room (1975), Spirituals (1977), and Ghetto Child (1979). In the 1980’s the group’s personnel gradually changed as the original members left to pursue other phases of their ministries.


The second version of the Breath of Life Quartet, including Adrian Westney, Jr., Reger Smith, Jr., Myron Ottley and Ronald Woodfork, released the album Come By Here in 1988. In 1992 Loren Mulraine joined the group, which for a number of years included all five members, with Adrian Westney, Jr. alternating between vocals and keyboards. This group released the album Brand New in 1997, and also released a special international recording for their Australia and New Zealand audience in 2000. The group retained variations of this configuration until 2008 when the current group – Loren Mulraine, Ronald Woodfork, Desmond Pierre-Louis and Duane Hamilton made their debut. The current group released Testimony in 2010. Adrian Westney, Jr. remains an occasional member of BLQ, primarily as a keyboardist.


BLQ is currently in pre-production on a new recording project, which will include both original contemporary gospel songs and new arrangements of hymns and spirituals.  The new project will be supported with international and U.S. touring dates, television, cable, and Internet appearances, and radio promotion.  BLQ is seeking to raise $30,000 for the production and initial marketing of this project.  Join us in this worthy cause to spread the gospel in song.
