Birth Name: Spensha Baker
Years Active: 2007-present
Genres: Urban Gospel

Spensha Baker was born in Hampton, VA and is a seventeen year old contemporary gospel singer. Growing up, Baker moved around the U.S. allot with her military but from a early age her mother knew that Baker had a rare talent. Baker's powerful voice stood out wherever she went and at the tender age of twelve, Baker landed a spot on The Inspirational Network's Christian Artist Talent Search show, which resulted in a place on the CBS-TV show Star Search. Baker was snatched up by Geffen Records, and her debut album, “Outloud!” was released later that same year.

“Outloud!” is a deeply personal album for Baker that speaks to her own growing maturity, commitment to her faith and the effect we have on others in our lives. Wise beyond her years, Baker's music will grow as she grows. Baker promises her audience that we have much more to come from this budding star and that she has much more to say: “I want to be a role model; someone people aspire to be like. That’s why the album is called Outloud!, I’m not afraid to show the world who I really am. One thing about me is that I am a regular girl. I struggle with certain subjects just like everyone else; I don’t try to hide it, it’s out there. I believe I’m here to encourage young people and I don’t mind doing it.”
