Singer/Songwriter & Worship Leader

SINGER/SONGWRITER

Belinda's first memory of singing on stage is at the age of eight.  For as long as she can remember there's been a song coming from her heart and lips.  Belinda has been trained in classical voice and has sung opera, jazz and contemporary.  She enjoys a range of music styles as can be seen from her CD collection!

Belinda has been writing and honing her own songs over a number of years. These original songs range in topic/theme areas:

Worship and praise songs which can be used in congregational singing, motivational songs, songs about life and calling, songs for all ages, songs for men, women, children and youth.

Belinda is available to sing at your church service and special events, Cafe formats, concerts, outreach events, or weddings.  Belinda has a range of songs available -  her own originals, as well as a repetoire of covers.

WORSHIP LEADER

Whether it's a small group or a large church service; whether it's a more traditional service or a contemporary service, Belinda sensitively leads people into worship. 

Belinda's heart of love for the Lord and her desire to have others enter into meaningful worship is infectious, inspirational and encouraging.

Her years of being part of various worship teams as well as serving as Music Pastor has afforded her the opportunity to work with a variety of age groups, musicians of various ability and music teams of various types.  Belinda is available to do training in worship, worship leading, musicianship and worship, team development etc.  

Belinda has been part of the worship team for large events like Easterfest (www.easterfest.com), combined church services and Carols by Candlelight.

Belinda Tigell - Artist Bio

Belinda started her singing 'career' as a young primary school child, mostly singing solos on the Perseverance Hall stage for the community Christmas breakup concerts. The concerts were organised by the Ravensbourne Methodist Church and she was invited back year after year. She has very few memories of this time, except for extreme nervousness and wondering when Santa would arrive. 

At 15 years of age she had her first request to sing at a wedding ceremony. Over the years, she’s sung at weddings, funerals, women's events, youth events and numerous church and community events (e.g. Carols by Candlelight, Easterfest). She's been fortunate to sing in various churches while on a mission and ministry trip in the USA and a small village in Mexico. Belinda has also sung backing vocals for a friend's album, conducted the Easterfest choir, and worked as a music pastor. 

Growing up listening to her mum's records, voices like Evie and Sandi Patty inspired her. Later Belinda discovered Amy Grant, Michael W Smith, Steven Curtis Chapman and Petra. Later, DC Talk arrived on the scene with lyrics, harmonies and rhythms she loved. She’s an eclectic listener and as a vocal student, has received training in classical, opera, jazz, and contemporary.  

Although Belinda remembers writing lyrics for songs since her pre-teen years, it has only been in the past few years that she’s invested more in her writing. As a songwriter, Belinda has been described as a wordsmith - painting compelling pictures and telling stories.

Her album “Jubilee” is her debut album, recorded by her friend Evan Shelton, “in the church auditorium, rumpus room, office - wherever we could find space, time and relative quiet”. The theme centres around healing, salvation and deliverance - a theme Belinda prays will be the experience of those who hear the album. 

That nervous 8 year old still makes her appearance from time-to-time, but Belinda loves making music, particularly with others who love to create, ‘have-a-go’, press in to God and have fun. Ultimately, she loves seeing people making connections - with the music, with the message, with the Messiah.
