LESSETTE (Lessette Kornegay) is from the little town of Kinston, NC. She received her musical training from her father who was a singer, songwriter, guitarist and manager of a gospel quartet group. Also, she took music lessons in band for seven years in school. Lessette cultivated her passion for music singing,  directing in church choirs, and singing at concerts local and abroad. In 2012 she released her first album "After The Storm". It was unchartered waters for her to write all the songs and sing all the vocal tracks on her album. She sang “After The Storm” for the judges (Kim Burrell, Ted Winn, Peggy Tatum) in the 2014 WIDU Carolina’s Best Competition, and won Best Vocalist. She sang “After The Storm” for the Hurricane Matthew flood victims relocated in shelters. This got the attention of WCTI -TV NEWS, and they did a story on her. Her “After The Storm” album is placed in Kinston Neuse Public Library’s Permanent Collection in her home town. Her love for Aretha Franklin, Patti Labelle, Elvis Presley, Shirley Caesar, Tina Turner, and Rascal Flatts, can be heard in her soul stirring contemporary gospel sound. Lessette received rave reviews, and her fans pressed her for an encore.  

   

In October 2017, Lessette released her recent album "You Know My Name". This album consists of tracks she also wrote, sang lead and background vocals as well as co produced. On this album it has a little Country, Rock, Jazz, R&B, Pop, Hip Hop, and Worship music with an Inspirational/Gospel message. She ministers hope and love through various genres that transcends cultures, religion and age barriers. Her “You Know My Name” album has a song titled “Country Roots” that she sings of her humble beginnings and a love song titled “Love” she wrote for her husband.

Lessette's Logo:  When asked "Why a dead rose for your logo. She stated, "A rose is more beautiful when it's dead, because it gave its life to bring joy to my day. Likewise, I'm giving my life in my gifts to encourage the broken hearted, and  tell the world that there is hope in God."
