Calandra has been called and anointed since the age of 2 years old to minister to the nations through music. She constantly fulfills her calling by taking the gospel arena by storm. Calandra is a saved and anointed woman of God, known for her energetic live performances and her unique style of making every song her own. It is for this reason she has been deemed as "The Princess of Praise."  Calandra is a firm believer that true praise and worship begins in the heart of a Christian and is only capable by having a personal relationship with Christ. It is through her personal walk with Christ that has developed her in to the songwriter she is today. Not only is she a singer and songwriter but she is a musical directress, teacher, minister, instrumentalist, community servant and mentor. Through her music ministry her desire is to reach the masses and encourage them to have a personal relationship with Christ.
   Calandra has been able to infuse jazz and contemporary with her praise and worship style. Her experiences can be felt in her lyrics and expressive vocal style that reveals the many facets of who this artist was and has become on this journey.
   Calandra uses her gift to continuously bless others by sponsoring and singing on benefit concerts and through volunteer work in her community. She has been blessed to travel to various states sharing her music ministry. Her belief is sometimes we use the lack of finances as a way of not giving back but we all have gifts that we can use to be a blessing to the less fortunate. Her desire is that when you come into her presence that you leave blessed, inspired, and encouraged. She has been blessed to minister and be a part of great events on her musical journey, such as
