The Psalm 139 Woman
A Woman of Destiny and Purpose!
It's About Being Free
For Antonia, music is about service -- to God and to those whose lives might be changed by the power of a song. Every note is given freely, with nothing asked in return other than a willingness to open one's heart and listen. It is the most generous of gifts, and the easiest to receive … because singing came to Antonia only after her own heart had opened to God. Its value lies not in the promise of fame, but in its power to touch others as it has touched her.
Antonia has a unique multicultural background. She was born in Manchester, England, her parents are from Jamaica and she was raised in Canada. She enrolled into Oral Roberts in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and this is where her ministry began and where she discovered the gift God had given to her. As Antonia grew in the knowledge of God, so did her talent as singer, songwriter and worship leader.
Her music reflects her multicultural background through the diversity of styles, mixed with lyrics that capture God word for today’s generation. On every track on her CD, Free To Be Me, she displays her range of style from Hip-hop, silky R&B ballads, sophisticated jazz, and reggae, Antonia's brilliantly expressive original songs, brings an ever-present spirit of praise, worship, and celebration. Antonia has worked with such producers, as David Sanguinetti, Jody Mayfield, and Mark Sandiford. Many people have been inspired by the joy and freedom to express worship and praise to God; as well as the comfort that Antonia's music provided in difficult times.

O LORD, you have examined my heart and know everything about me.
2 You know when I sit down or stand up.You know my every thought when far away.
3 You chart the path ahead of me and tell me where to stop and rest.Every moment you know where I am.
4 You know what I am going to say even before I say it, LORD.
5 You both precede and follow me.You place your hand of blessing on my head.
6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,too great for me to know!
7 I can never escape from your spirit!I can never get away from your presence!
8 If I go up to heaven, you are there;if I go down to the place of the dead, you are there.
9 If I ride the wings of the morning,if I dwell by the farthest oceans,
10 even there your hand will guide me,and your strength will support me.
11 I could ask the darkness to hide me and the light around me to become night-
12 but even in darkness I cannot hide from you.To you the night shines as bright as day.Darkness and light are both alike to you.
13 You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother's womb.
14 Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex!Your workmanship is marvelous--and how well I know it.
15 You watched me as I was being formed in utter seclusion,as I was woven together in the dark of the womb.
16 You saw me before I was born.Every day of my life was recorded in your book.Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed.
17 How precious are your thoughts about me, O God!They are innumerable!
18 I can't even count them;they outnumber the grains of sand!And when I wake up in the morning,you are still with me!
19 O God, if only you would destroy the wicked!Get out of my life, you murderers!
20 They blaspheme you; your enemies take your name in vain.
21 O LORD, shouldn't I hate those who hate you?Shouldn't I despise those who resist you?
22 Yes, I hate them with complete hatred,for your enemies are my enemies.
23 Search me, O God, and know my heart;test me and know my thoughts.
24 Point out anything in me that offends you,and lead me along the path of everlasting life.
