The music that Jokia writes and sings is true, genuine worship music. When people hear her music, they instantly feel the intense joy of worship that she felt throughout her faith. Believing every word with all of her heart, it’s hard not to walk away from a Jokia song without feeling the love and grace of Jesus Christ.
