BET Sunday Best Season 6 Finalist Tasha Page-Lockhart takes center stage in her hometown of Detroit. Joining Page-Lockhart is fellow Sunday Best Finalist Kefia Rollerson in a benefit concert on Monday September 2, 2013 at Christian Tabernacle as she advocates for a segment of our youth who have often been forgotten. The Development Center For Pregnant Teenagers, a Federal 501(c)(3) nonprofit, hopes to raise awareness to the many dangers and contributing factors which contribute to unplanned births to teenagers. The benefit concert will raise funding necessary to support vulnerable young parents and their children.
Joining BET Sunday Best Season 6 Finalists Page-Lockhart and Rollerson, is Larry Callahan, Selected of God newcomer Bobby Newt, and Detroit’s own Amish J. McDonald. Attendees won’t be disappointed as they will be treated to both old favorites and new music from Lisa Page-Brooks (I Want To Say Thank You) and Lowell Pye all performing LIVE–accompanied by world class musicians under the incomparable music direction of Cliff Lockhart. All performances promise to capture the spirit of compassion and provide tangible support and hope in situations that may seem hopeless through the eyes of a child.
Page-Lockhart, once a teen challenged with a teen pregnancy, knows firsthand what obstacles young parents face, and lends her voice and talent in an effort to raise funds and provide the opportunities and safety net that she didn’t always have. The Development Center For Pregnant Teenagers Founder Charita Douglas shares, “While there are many pregnant teens that have family support, our mission is to advance the welfare of the over one million who don’t. We are grateful for the advocacy support Tasha is providing and seeing her strength has been a blessing.”
In a city that refuses to be defeated, Detroit has rallied around Page-Lockhart as she continues to compete in her quest on what is reportedly the highest rated season of BET Sunday Best.

About Tasha Page Lockhart
Tasha Page-Lockhart was born and raised in the gospel music capitol of the world, Detroit, Michigan. Since a little girl, she’s been honing her craft as a successful gospel singer with the influence and direction of her mother, Lisa Page (Brooks), a founding member of the gospel group Witness.
When she was a child, she sang jingles for K-Mart, Dodge, Caravan, Bisquick, and the United Way. In 2001, after Witness returned from a brief performing hiatus, Tasha became the youngest member of the group. She has traveled the world on international tours throughout Europe and in 2011, appeared on Jawn Murray’s compilation CD “Untapped”.
She has starred in stage plays including the hit stage play “Church Girl”, which was filmed and also aired on BET. She has performed with heavyweights of the industry as she toured in stage plays: “Finding First Lady”, “Why Do Good Girls Like Bad Boys”, “I Need a Man”, and has brought her phenomenal vocals to the stage with vocal powerhouses like Angela Winbush, Rubin Studdard, Kierra Sheard and her mother Karen Clark Sheard.
It should be of no surprise, that in June 2013, she auditioned and earned herself a chance to compete with the nation’s other top gospel singers as a contestant on season 6 of BET’s Sunday’s Best–the popular gospel singing competition hosted by Kirk Franklin. Tasha Page-Lockhart is a daughter, wife, mother and servant of the Lord blessed with an anointing for this generation.
