In this fifth episode of the Detention to Redemption podcast, I interview singer, songwriter, author, and TV personality, Ms. Lynda Randle. Lynda’s distinct alto voice has created opportunities for her to minister across the United States and around the world. Her gift has allowed her to share the stage with musical legends, from Andre Crouch to Gladys Knight. Lynda has opened for national sporting events and has had the distinct honor of being a musical guest for a Billy Graham crusade. She has been a favorite on the Gaither Homecoming Series and Videos. Her two most requested songs are “God On The Mountain” and “I’m Free.” In 2005, she won a Dove Award for her album, “A Tribute To Mahalia Jackson.”
During the course of this interview Lynda shares how she was born and raised in the inner city of Washington D.C. and how early on in her life she went along with her dad to prison. Lynda shares how her family has been impacted by her brothers’ incarceration and offers words of encouragement to other families who have been impacted by incarceration. She shares how that her love for people regardless of who they are and what they have done comes from her love for God and how she feels inspired by sharing the Gospel inside of prison. Lynda is very passionate about letting people know that it’s not over even if you are in prison and that there is hope. You will be inspired by this podcast recording as it will cause you to look within yourself and consider engaging in prison ministry.
