Paula Williams was born and raised in Chicago, IL to Amos and Rosa Wilson. She is the only girl of five other children, all brothers. Paula began singing as a young child. Growing up, at family gatherings, she and her second oldest brother were made to sing almost every weekend. This was somewhat of a family tradition. At 11 years old, Paula accepted Jesus Christ as her Savior and joined the youth choir at Antioch Missionary Baptist Church on the south side of Chicago. There she was one of the lead vocalists and also directed the choir from time to time. Paula married her eighth-grade sweetheart, Clarence Williams. They had two children, a daughter and a son. Paula and her family live in a south suburb of Chicago. In 1987, Paula and her family became members of a non-denominational church known at that time as The House of Glory. The name of the church has since changed to Family Harvest Church located in the southwest suburbs of Chicago. Paula is ever grateful to her Pastor, Dr. Robb Thompson. He has been a great inspiration in her life. At her church, Paula is one of the worship leaders, lead vocalists, and soloists. Church has always been Paula's home base. There she draws spiritual strength and guidance. This is also where here biggest audience is. She is a powerful, anointed singer. Paula loves ministering to the audience because "it's not just singing, it's true ministry." Paula's prayer is that when she sings, people will be saved, healed and delivered from whatever their problems are. It has always been Paula's desire to record an album, but she decided to not push the issue. In other words, she was not going to make it happen on her own. Her prayer was that if this was truly something that God wanted for her, then He would have to open the right doors. Thanks be to God, He did. Paula has learned that you have to do things in the right season. Well, her season has come. Praise God!
