10 Questions For…
DIVINE::Are there songs from your time with the Tri-City Singers and your time in the duo-group Ted & Sheri that you still sing now as a solo artist?
Sheri: Yes. I love to sing Encourage Yourself, Come Ye Disconsolate, although I wouldn’t dare sing that great song without Ted, and also The Best Is Yet To Come.
DIVINE::What makes Sheri Jones-Moffet unique?
Sheri:Not just that I have a musical gift but my ability to help people relate to God. People want to be connected to something that feels real and right. When I open my mouth to speak/sing, people can receive God and it’s a genuine experience.
DIVINE::What’s the most rewarding part of your job?
Sheri: Watching people transform and change their minds. I love how God uses me as a conduit to bring that awareness to people. I love witnessing the awakening in people when they find truth in what I’ve said or in what I sing.
DIVINE:: What’s your Favorite Song from the Renewed CD?
Sheri: My favorite song changes from day to day but I will say I love “Not Too Late To Dream”.
DIVINE:: How does it feel to be honored by the Memphis & Shelby County Music Commission?
Sheri: I’m reminded of the scripture that says, “A prophet is honored everywhere except in his own hometown and among his relatives and his own family” (Mark 6:4). Many times it’s hard to be appreciated where you’ve come from so it always feels good when you can put your footprint in the world and still receive honor at home. It also feels good to motivate others who see what you’re doing and suddenly they have more energy to follow their dreams. Lastly, I love having the ability to make other people in my hometown look good. We are all winners!
