*“When it’s powerful enough to bring me to my knees…the change came. A Spiritual shift,” said multi-platinum selling songwriter Alisha Brooks, known in the industry as M’Jestie, about rededicating her life to the belief in Christ.
M’Jestie recently released a solo vocal debut album titled “III” and at this time she has released three singles from that project “Take Me to the Moon,” “All Away,” and “True.” “I got to the top without God. I was rich and not happy. Then I had the ‘come to Jesus’ moment.”
M’Jestie took the advice of a friend and relocated from New Jersey to Florida to take songwriting seriously. Through circumstance, she wrote a song for the iconic Rhianna, “Pon de Replay.” Not only was she able to write a song for the singer, but the song became one of Rhianna’s single releases, and the single reached multi-platinum status. The “Pon de Replay” single peaked at #1 on U.S. Billboard Dance Club Songs Chart and #2 on U.S. Hot Billboard Chart.
M’Jestie said the name of her album “III” started out with one meaning and ended up with another meaning – the Trinity. The Trinity stands for The Father, The Son and The Holy Spirit – God. A New Jersey native with Blues, Jazz and Hip-Hop influences M’Jestie has also written songs for or worked with Victoria Beckham, Dame Dash and P. Diddy. As a vocalist M’Jestie worked with producer Calvin Merazh to find the sound of her voice. Singing is what she initially wanted to do, but the standard “business” of the industry turned her off. Her rebirth has given her the strength to endure as she releases her solo debut album, “III.” www.MJestie.com
