Carlene Davis Biography
Internationally acclaimed Gospel recording artiste Carlene Davis is one of the most dynamic music ministers coming out of Jamaica. As this Caribbean Hall of Fame Awardee testifies in song, the powerful message of God’s love flows through her, bringing hope and healing to the heart of the listener.
God has truly anointed and appointed her to affect this generation and her mission is to bring deliverance and transformation to a hurting world through the ministry of music, thus fulfilling The Great Commission.
Born in Clarendon, Jamaica, W.I., Carlene Davis spent her early childhood with her grand-parents who instilled the importance of Christ in her life. At the age of 14 she migrated to England with the rest of her siblings to join her parents.
