Bring Christ-centered Devotional Chant to your Event
I’m hoping to be considered as a new artist during your event, Ecstatic Chant 2022. I’ve been many times to Blue Spirit, often returning for Deva and Miten’s Gayatri Festival. I am friends with Deva, Sukdev and Michael Mayzel, who have all influenced my music. This one minute video is from a chanting event located in my backyard in Orange County California.
How is Christ centered Devotional Chant Music different?
Unlike mantra or chant in the language of Sanskrit or Gurmukhi, this style of chant is in English. My songs originate from biblical reference or a combination of eastern and western spirituality. Instead of chanting to a universal divinity, my chants specifically are songs to God or to Christ, which of course, is also a universal divinity with many names. The music behind the chant has more of a western feel; contemporary, inspirational and uplifting or it is melodic, introspective and prayerful. All of my chants are 5-minutes in length so as to be able to build a chant or meditation practice depending on the number of songs chosen.
What is Christ centered Devotional Chant?
Devotion to means to show adoration and love. A Christ centered chant rejoices and expresses gratitude, compassion and peace in Christ who dwells within every human heart. Christ centered chant is a way to sing praises and prayers to a loving God and can also call light into someone’s life. It uses sound current and a breath pattern to invoke the Spirit while calming the body and soul, thus bringing peace and harmony to the individual.

Christ centered Devotional Chant creator
I went through a divorce and was experiencing tremendous anxiety. I discovered churches did not offer meditation as a way of healing so I began and finished a 10 year certification in Kundalini Yoga. I fell in love with the chanting/mantra and meditation aspects of this practice and early one morning heard the voice of God tell me to make devotional chants in English. The songs came pouring out of me even not having had any formal music background. Besides chanting I teach a Christ centered meditation and prayer practice, and am publishing a book on how to do both.
“Tonyah’s music and meditations are better than going to church. It’s soothing and you can relax and take it in. It’s a super faith experience. It brightens my day. Tonyah is a real messenger and angel of God. I used her contemplations during my radiation and it got me through a tough time.”
“We’ve had Tonyah’s CD playing in the car on repeat for years! My kids and I enjoy singing along with every song on her album. Her music has brought so much joy to our lives and each song has such a positive message. I encourage anyone and everyone to listen to her music regularly to add peace and light to their everyday lives.”
