IT IS often said that no matter how far away God's children may stray, they will eventually find their way back home.This is what Jamaican-born singer Barbara Jones believes happened to her, as after many years of singing in the secular world she has made the crossover to being a gospel artiste.Jones says she grew up in the church and was always taught the teachings of God, but as she grew older she found herself straying further away from the church.
Going in steady pursuit of her musical career, Jones started singing reggae in the early 1970s. Her talent soon gained her international acclaim in 1972, when she released her debut album Sad Movies. She followed that up with a huge hit in Just When I Needed You Most, which entered the British charts and led to her appearing on 'Top of the Pops' in England. Jones has released 13 secular albums and walked away with numerous awards, among them the International Female Artiste of the year in 1983 and 1984.The fame and success for Jones did not end there, however, as her 1985 release Dream Lover won her the Top Female International Reggae Artiste of the Year at the Canadian Reggae Awards.In 1989 all this came to an end, as Jones went on a soul-searching mission to find new purpose for her life.
"People always encouraged me that if I sang gospel I would feel so much better," Jones recalls. She says she was hesitant, because she hadn't committed her life fully to the Lord.As faith and fate would have it, Jones eventually decided that it was time for a total change in her life and in 1991 (on Good Friday), Jones became a Christian and was baptised
