‘Lessing’ is a worship group from the Cincinnati, Ohio area lead by David and Amanda Lessing.
At the young age of 4, Amanda approached her father, who was a Pastor, and told him “I want to put together and lead a choir, here’s a list of the people I need!”
Worship was her heart from the beginning! She quickly developed into a multi-instrumentalist and songwriter, recording her first full length album at age 13. At the age of 17, she began leading both the youth worship and adult worship teams full time for 8 years.
David’s story is very similar. At seven he began private piano lessons for eight years and developed his skills participating in the ‘Junior Music Festival’ program at Miami University, Oxford. Then at age 13 he began helping lead youth worship and released his first full length album of original music at age 17. For the last six years he has been a member of the multi-platinum recording group ‘Blessid Union of Souls’, and through extensive touring has played music on every inhabitable continent other than Australia.
In April of 2018 they released their first studio EP of all original songs entitled ‘You Are Ever Faithful’.
David and Amanda’s focus verse is Psalm 59:17, which states:
O my Strength, to You I sing praises, for you, O God, are my refuge, the God who shows me unfailing love.
Their prayer is that the worship of their hearts would connect with others and create an atmosphere where the Father’s love can be experienced and a better understanding of Christ is found through the moving of the Spirit!
