Marica Chisolm’’s music embodies the powerful message of John 4:23 “But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshipers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth. For the Father seeketh such to worship Him.” Her artistry serves as a constant reminder that the believer must learn to be a worshipper, and that music can help to unlock this part of the spirit.
Marica was born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia; she started singing at the age of two, while a member of Big Miller Grove Baptist Church, where she was remained a faithful member until the age of 20. At this point in her life, she had developed such a hunger for God and a heart for true worship, which led her to accept the call of becoming a psalmist. She then went on to become a member of Citadel of Hope COGIC where God began to truly craft her gifting. Marica was able to usher the people into the true presence of God using songs that were inspired by the Holy Spirit, and could see that lives were being changed as a result. This led her to continue ministering, writing more songs that would bring about a true worship experience for God’s people.
Many gospel greats have served as inspiration for Marica, including her grandparents, Willie and Josephine Wilder. Other artists she admires include Kim Burrell, Kurt Carr, Judy McAllister, and Contrell Jones. Marica has opened for Ron Kenoly & Don Moen. She has also done background vocals for Dorinda Clark-Cole, Karen Clark-Sheard, Pastor Hezekiah Walker, Dottie Peoples, Byron Cage Vashawn Mitchell and Kelly Price. Marica is committed to working with other artists that have a desire to glorify God through song, and will be releasing her own praise and worship projects soon.
Marica is the proud mother of three beautiful children, Destiny, Skylar and Thomas II, and draws creative energy to compose new music from her husband Thomas, who is also a singer. She is a member of Gathering of Champions where she faithfully serves as an integral part of ministry in many capacities – as praise & worship leader, minister, and intercessor. Her new single Hallelujah to the King is available on iTunes, cdbaby, and Amazon.
Marica can sum her life and mission up in just a few words. “My assignment is to help the saints of God to move to another dimension in worship.” She uses her favorite Bible verse to explain that she understands that this is her God-given , lifelong work: “Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ” – Phil. 1:6.
