and performing uplifting feel-good music and inspiring people to be happy and live life. My favorite song of all-time is "Blessed Assurance," so I try to inject a positive vibe into everything that I write." She entered and won multiple talent shows as a child but it was when she sang "My Father's Eyes" alongside Contemporary Christian/Pop phenomenon Amy Grant in Nashville that 6-year-old Ashthon knew she had what it took to be a star. Influenced by the likes of Mary Mary, Shirley Caesar, Mariah Carey and many others, Ashthon's musical tastes are as diverse as her talent. In addition to penning all her own songs, Ashthon enjoys painting, shopping, is in the process of learning how to play the piano and loves to roller skate. "Anything that allows me to be creative and learn something new and different, I am all for it. As an artist, it is vital to my career to experience life and be the best at everything I do."

A run-away at 15, Ashthon Jones never met her biological father and the man who helped raise her since birth passed away when she was 14. "My faith in God saved my life. Even when I was living on my own, I never strayed away from the core values I learned in Church. I want to be a beacon of hope for somebody out there who may not be in the best situation but can look at me and know someone who has weathered the storm." Ashthon is so resolute in her mission to reach the souls of people, that she is looking forward to working with various youth organizations, as well as launching her own foundation aimed at empowering young people. "My voice is a gift from God; so is my talent. There is a sweetness, as well as a rawness about me that I think anybody can relate to. If you put your heart into whatever you want, it will come to pass, I am a living example of that."
