Singer/songwriter, Sheri LaFontaine is pleased to announce her first charting single on the Singing News Top 80. Her latest, New Every Morning is the first release from Sheri’s new cd, Something More and has debuted at #65 for the month of March 2011.
The Something More project continues to display the range and versatility that has helped her win the hearts of her audiences for over 20 years. This dynamic album showcases not only her songwriting brilliance and captivating voice but also her love for God.
“I cried after getting the call that my song had hit the charts,” she chuckles. “It may seem silly to some, but it really means the world to me that people are requesting it and the DJ’s are playing it. I’ve been honored to see other artists climb the charts with songs that I’ve written, but this is truly overwhelming. Feeling so blessed right now.”
Sheri began singing while traveling with her abundantly talented family, led by her father John LaFontaine, a minister for over 48 years.
In 1994 with Grammy nominated singer Jeff Easter on board as producer, she recorded her first solo project, Takinâ€™ My Place. â€œThe first time I heard Sheri LaFontaine, I was so impressed that I called my wife, Sheri and said, â€˜Youâ€™ve got to hear this girl! Sheâ€™s unbelievably talented,â€™â€ stated Jeff.
Shortly thereafter, Sheri received a call from the top promoter in southern gospel, Frank Arnold and was asked to join his group, The Arnolds on the road. While touring with the Arnolds, the group had several songs to chart featuring LaFontaine’s signature voice. When Nothing But a Miracle Will Do, I’m Glad and God’s Still Faithful receive airplay to this day across the country.
After several years of traveling Sheri felt the Lord leading her to focus on her solo career and songwriting. In 2004 she signed a songwriting contract with one of the industryâ€™s top recording labels, Daywind Music. Sheri has written such charting singles as, While I Wait by LordSong, Everyday It Starts All Over Again by Three Bridges, All I Ever Need by the Crist family, Under the Circumstance by Misty Freeman and many more.
