Fourth Friday Concert - Inside Gospel with Chadney Christle - April 26

DeSoto, TX - From traditional gospel, contemporary, and jazz music- Chadney Christle has music in her blood. Born and raised in Dallas TX and currently living in DeSoto, TX, she started singing in her church at the age of five.

She adapted to music quickly by playing piano at seven years old and began her professional music career at the age of ten. Chadney spiced up her musical career and set a new standard as she graduated from David D. Carter High School and attended Cedar Valley College where she studied vocal performance, jazz composition, and sound engineering.

Her innovative, distinctive style combines a blend of traditional gospel, contemporary, and jazz music. These different styles, as well as a strong presence in the church, helped to shape Chadney as a singer as well as a person. Chadney Christle has the natural ability to play four musical instruments and also helps in directing the band. As the Assistant Minister of Music, she serves the Lord in many capacities. “To whom much is given, much shall be required in return.” She serves as Youth Director, leader of the praise and worship team, and directs the Women’s Chorus. As a gifted composer, teacher, and singer, she passionately leads praise and worship consistently to a higher level with power and love as she lives her life in line with the Scripture.chadley

Chadney brings with her a rich resume of experience that includes working and ministering with Myron Butler & Levi, Fred Hammond, Kirk Franklin (Hello Fear), Angel (from Trinitee 5:7), George Huff, Candy West, and Kim Burrell. With Chadney, the gospel sound will never be the same as she recently released her highly anticipated EP “Wait on Him” with her group Chadney Christle & Atonement on July 28th. It quickly rose to #2 for New Releases on Amazon and #13 on iTunes. You can find and purchase her music on all major online music stores. This is just the beginning for this anointed group- the best is yet to come!

Adrion Butler:

Matt. 23:10-12 says 10"Do not be called leaders; for One is your Leader, that is, Christ. 11"But the greatest among you shall be your servant. 12"Whoever exalts himself shall be humbled; and whoever humbles himself shall be exalted.… My name is Adrion Butler, born in Midland, TX August 14th. I grew up in the church because my dad was the music minister. So, I found love for music at a young age. Since then I have grown into my own image musically and spiritually. I now clearly understand that nothing good can come from my sinful heart. (Matthew 15:19) So my flesh will always have selfish intentions (new experience, exposure, recognition, etc.). But I try to live with the things of the spirit in mind. God has done an amazing work in my life. I serve people…simply because Christ served people. I am privileged to serve under some very influential people; these people have helped form who I am as a man and leader today.

Musically I have had the opportunity to share the stage with some amazing people including: Norris J, Andy Mineo, YBSOD, The FAM, Trip Lee, Bizzle, Sean C. Johnson, Json, Flame, Da Truth, Jessica Reedy, and many more. I am focusing my attention on a body of work that explores the redemptive process of people who needed forgiveness. Most stories are told from the perspective of the victim....these will be stories of the ones who cause the pain and how they too can be forgiven.
