The sound of Appointed creates a beautiful blend of melodious notes all on one accord to lift up the name of Jesus. The members of Appointed are LaKeisha Fersner-Lawrence, Faye Hubbard-Thompson, Latrina Pepper-Holmes, and Anjani Jackson-Robinson. All members are natives of Orangeburg, South Carolina. Over a period of approximately 8 years, the members' paths crossed at various events. There was a unique bond and anointed sound that was noticed when their voices blended. By the grace of God, the ladies came together to form what is now, the contemporary gospel group, Appointed.


The ladies of Appointed are committed to using their gifts for God's glory. In 2010, they won 1st place in the small group category at Black Expo in Columbia, S.C. This event was hosted by David and Tamela Mann. They have shared the stage with Robby Cummings & Beyond the Veil, Marlena Smalls & the Hallelujah Singers, Christian comedian Broderick Rice, Sarah Dash, Evangelist Myrna Summers, and Gail Holmes. In 2011, the group was selected to participate in the McDonald’s Choir Showcase in Columbia, S.C. This concert afforded them the opportunity to share the stage with artists such as, Kevin LeVar, Vashawn Mitchell, and Bishop Paul S. Morton. They have served their local community and surrounding areas by leading praise and worship at churches and various organized events.


They are privileged to be used as vessels to draw others to Christ. They sing to encourage, inspire, uplift, and give hope. Appointed embodies the epitome of sisters in Christ.
