Always a favorite on the Homecoming stage and a multiple-Dove and Grammy nominee, Janet’s music, as well as her grace and class have endeared her to audiences around the world. A native of Reidsville, North Carolina, Janet was invited to become a member of the renowned gospel group, The LeFevres, immediately after her high school graduation. The group later became The Rex Nelon Singers after the last LeFevre retired from the group, and Janet continued with them until the early 1980s.
She has since released numerous solo recordings, authored two books, and has been featured on countless Homecoming tapings and live events in addition to her own concert dates. After her own journey back to health after a breast cancer diagnosis, Janet is now hosting radio show on JoyFM which highlights stories of people whose lives have been impacted in some way by cancer. We are grateful to have her here at Family Fest and thrilled she is now cancer-free!
