Matelyn Alicia

A native of Akron Ohio, Matelyn Alicia has emerged from the cocoon as "God's Butterfly" and at a loss for a more fitting response, she Worships! Born and raised in the Church of God in Christ, she spent her life surrounded by good music. Starting out like many other notable singers, she would discover this gift of song in the church. At the age of 9 she led her first song, "Trust In Jesus", with her church's children's choir. From that moment on she would find herself with a microphone in hand and platform underfoot. By 2011 God brought about the paradigm shift that she so desperately needed; she would accept His invitation to "delight in me" and be forever changed. The new found intimacy with Abba turned the
heart of this singer/songwriter/actress back to her first love and transformed even her entertainment endeavors into worship experiences. As promised in His word, God has allowed her gift to make room for her as she has traveled the world singing His praises. From lead roles on the stages of the National Black Theater Festival, to a Winter Gospel Tour of Germany Matelyn Alicia has built an impressive artist resume, but even IT pales in comparison to the experiences shared with fellow believers as God trusts her to lead his people into worship.

Under the covering of her Husband and Musical Director, Minister R James Thompson Jr., Matelyn has embarked on the next part of the journey – her debut worship project,
"God's Butterfly". The first single, "Lion of Judah" was released in October of 2016, with the second single"Masquerade" set to release March of 2017. When asked "What does worship mean to you?" Her answer is simple:
"Surrender is my worship. Complete abandon to the will of the one who loves me and all of my filthyrag-righteousness... laying it all down, that's my worship."
What keeps her humble? "Nothing could be more humbling to me, than the realization that God has trusted me with a gift... and through this thing that I didn't work for and could not have earned, He chooses to bless me and others!! It leaves me

The wife of her "Good and Perfect Gift", RJ, and mother of 6 (3 biological and 3 bonus) beautiful children, Matelyn currently resides in Jacksonville FL.
