Gospel Artist and Songwriter
Inducted by LaShell Moore, Arts in McNairy Board
September 10, 2022
Ezella Robinson started singing at the ripe old age of three, and was writing poetry by the age of ten. Little did she know both would figure prominently in her future. As a high school senior Ezella became the first African American female cast in a leading role in a West Tennessee regional musical production. At Bethel University she continued her student acting and singing career, participating in numerous university and community theater productions. Ezella graduated from Bethel with a major in English and minors in Sociology and Theater.
Ezella is now an independent gospel artist, songwriter, author, poet, playwright, story teller and actress. She is an Amazon best selling author and one of her children's titles is a featured selection at the South Carolina African American Museum. She has numerous music videos and media appearances to her credit, including artists' spots on CBIZTV in Detroit Michigan and PWN Network in Alpharetta, Georgia; a feature on Shine the Light Radio with Nancy Smith Mattox; a performance on Drop the Mic with Mike Fitzgerald; and an artist interview with Kyonna T. Fields. She was nominated for The Divine Connections Awards in multiple years and was the 2020 Divine Connections Soloist of the Year. Ezella has twice performed at the Gospel Choice Awards as well as the Gospel Image Awards, and was a nominee for Gospel Artist of the Year at the Tennessee Music Award in multiple years. Ezella works with special needs children and her songwriting credits include a number of children's songs.
All awards and accolades aside, Ezella Robinson is most at home leading praise and worship music that ministers to the heart and soul of those in need. She continues to lead in the worship setting, and perform gospel in media appearances, and live concert venues. Ezella is much in demand, both for the quality of her vocals and the spirit with which she leads worship. She is a credit to the regional gospel music community and worthy recipient of McNairy County Music Hall of Fame honors.
It is our great honor to induct Ezella Robinson into the McNairy County Music Hall of Fame in the class of 2023.
