LADY ADRIANN LEWIS-FREEMAN
Adriann Lewis-Freeman is the eldest daughter of Pastor Luciose Lewis Jr. and Kayron Lewis of Saginaw, MI. She has three siblings, Keith Jenkins, Aundrea Lewis and Ay’Ron Lewis. Adriann sang her first solo at three years of age, standing on a wooden box at Mt. Moriah Missionary Baptist Church (Saginaw, MI) where her mother was the musician, and her father was a deacon. At twelve years of age, while resting under a piano in a recording studio, Adriann knew that her career would be in singing after hearing her voice replayed from speakers on her first recording, “His the Greatest Friend of All,” with Saginaw Valley Choir under the direction of the late Rev. Jerry Redeemer and her mother, Kayron Lewis.
Adriann, along with her sister, Aundrea, are the founders of the gospel duo RiZen. RiZen has recorded three albums hitting the billboard charts at numbers 28, 6, and 3. They are the recipients of two Stellar Awards, several Dove Awards Nominations, and other countless awards for their musical and anointed vocals. They have ministered with Stevie Wonder, Yolanda Adams, Shelia E., Vickie Yohe, Byron Cage, Kirk Carr, Kirk Franklin, Fred Hammond, Pastor Donnie McClurkin, James Fortune, Pastor Shirley Caesar, Pastor John P. Kee, Kelly Price, Tom Joyner, Dr. Bobby Jones and many others. They have also traveled around the United States, Europe, Germany, and Korea to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ through song, and the word of God.
December 2008, God, along with Pastor Jimmy D. Greer and the Friendship Baptist Church in Nashville, TN, called her to be the Minister of Music. Her time at Friendship was just for a season as God had a plan to give her the desire of her heart, which was finishing her college degree and getting re-married. In 2011, she finished Tennessee State with a B. A. in English. Finishing her degree was not only for her, but also for her son to see how important education is. After much encouragement, in 2014 she received a Masters of Educational Leadership from Concordia University, Portland, Oregon. Today, she uses her education as a high school teacher for Tennessee’s Public Schools.
In 2012 she married Pastor Darin G. Freeman Sr. of the Tabernacle Baptist Church in Nashville, TN and gained two wonderful children. Together they lead and mentor the people of God in Praise, Worship, Christian Education, and Global Outreach. Not only is she “Lady A,” but she also serves as the Minister of Worship & Music Arts.
Adriann has been featured and or collaborated on projects such as VaShawn Mitchell, Everett Drake, Bishop Paul Morton & Full Gospel, J.J. Hairston & First Cathedral Mass Choir, and most recently Brandon Mitchell’s Project “Amazing”. There are other projects that Adriann lends her anointed vocals to.
Today, Adriann has completed her first solo single, “Prayer Changes Things” which is available on all digital outlets. Her next single “Joybells” is shooting up the charts. Adriann believes, “For with God nothing shall be impossible” Luke 1:37.
