Lena Byrd Miles’ latest single “WOW (Walk On Water)” remains in the #1 position at Billboard’s Gospel Airplay chart this week. This is also the song’s 28th week on the chart. “WOW (Walk On Water)” was written by Lena Byrd Miles, Warryn Campbell and Eric Dawkins and produced by Warryn Campbell for My Block Inc.

“Walk On Water, is to step out of your own way; letting fears, pride, excuses, and lies we tell ourselves bagged up in that “stinking thinking” space go and choosing to step into BIG faith mode,” shares Lena. “It is walking by faith, letting the Lord lead, while doing what’s necessary to carry out your purpose and accomplishing all God ordained for you to do,” she adds.

“W.O.W. (Walk On Water)” is available on all streaming platforms now via the My Block Inc./SRG-ILS Group label imprint.

One of the most sought-after vocalists in contemporary gospel, Lena’s soulful and extraordinary vocal prowess has caught the attention of musicians and artists alike. Her gift has opened many doors. She has shared the stage with such luminaries as Tye Tribbett, Lalah Hathaway, Deitrick Haddon, Dorinda, John P. Kee, Doobie Powell, the late Thomas “TC” Clay, and more. And she was privileged to sing with the legendary Edwin Hawkins as part of the New Edwin Hawkins Singers-where it all began.

More than an artist, Lena is a wife, daughter, sister, friend, and licensed hairstylist with a unique ability to connect with people. Her innate comedic prowess and infectious laugh draw you in, but her compassion for mankind will cause you to appreciate her heart. Lena’s going to be with us this year for our 15th Annual Spirit of Praise Celebration.  Tickets are on sale now at Eventbrite.com.
