Born in New York, Liz’ journey into the entertainment arena is rooted in her gift of gab. Her parents said they knew she was destined to use her voice professionally. Since she was a toddler, Liz was very vocal and by the age of 5 she’d already developed a passion for emceeing talent shows and other events.
Liz started her career as a model appearing, in TV commercials and Billboard ads. She eventually became a member of the Screen Actors Guild and began to audition for various television roles. Most recently Liz appeared in VaShawn Mitchell’s “Nobody Greater” music video and has hosted Gospel Amateur Night at the world famous Apollo Theater.
In 1990 Liz began the second phase of her life when she accepted Christ as her Lord and Savior and committed herself to the ministry of Kingdom Building. Shortly after her spiritual rebirth, Liz began honing her “talking” skills while touring with the Al Dixon Life Games - a group of athletes determined to make a difference in the lives of young people. During this time she established the Christian Jam Network as a creative means of providing a social outlet for young adults. In 2001 Liz founded New Mercies Café, a Gospel Experience & Showcase (www.LizBlack.com). From New Mercies Café the very popular Liz Black’s Gospel Variety Show & Open Mic was spun-off. For nearly four years Liz ran an internet radio station which she started in 2002 when the concept wasn’t even popular. The station had regular listeners in 98 countries.
Liz graduated from the National Broadcasters Training school and has worked with the likes of radio veteran Kevin Cottrell of Salem Communications WMCA, Donnie McClurkin and Hezekiah Walker. She has hosted KISS Inspirations (98.7-KISS FM), Gospel Grooves 89.1FM, Entertainment News 970am, and Bishop Hezekiah Walker’s Afternoon Praise 1190am.
Not limited to just radio, Liz is an experienced Gospel Music journalist and former cable television host. You can catch Liz’s “Gospel Grooves Review & Top 10 Countdown” in The NY Christian Times & The TriState Voice newspapers and online. She is the founder of the Gospel Artist Network (www.gospelartistnetwork.net), which she established as a means to mentor independent artists. In addition to all that she does, Liz is a “Prayer Warrior” and the host of a weekly corporate prayer conference call that is lead by dynamic ministry leaders.
Liz is the 2013 recipient of the Woman of Excellence Award from Rev. Al Sharpton’s The National Action Network Woman’s auxiliary.
Liz’s favorite scripture is Philippians 4:13 “I can do everything through him who gives me strength.” Liz uses this scripture as her mantra as she goes about her daily ministry of talking to the masses. For booking info call 747-77-6134 or firstname.lastname@example.org
