Vanessa Bell Armstrong (born Vanessa Bell on October 2, 1953 in Detroit, Michigan) is a gospel singer who released her debut album Peace Be Still in 1983.
“When I started out, I was a contemporary vocalist however the late Thomas Whitfield mixed it up with a traditional feel and since then I never went far from that… I love the contemporary and I love the traditional… to me the time-honored sounds of Gospel music is our medicine… it gives us hope… it encourages, but the contemporary-up tempo stuff is what lifts us up. It all works together.”—Vanessa Bell Armstrong
A native of Detroit and mother of five, she got her career moving with the assistance of Dr. Mattie Moss Clark.

Vanessa Bell Armstrong made her solo debut on Onyx/Muscle Shoals Sound Records in 1983 with the album Peace Be Still. The title track has since became one of Armstrong’s signature songs. Armstrong’s second album Chosen hit number one on the US Billboard Top Gospel Albums chart.
Vanessa was presented with a lifetime achievement award during 2004′s Gospel Superfest. Armstrong’s 2007 album, Walking Miracle, blended traditional gospel fare like “So Good To Me” (produced by Smokie Norful) with contemporary songs like “Til The Victory’s Won” (produced by Fred Jerkins III) and the title track (produced by Rodney Jerkins). The latter song was inspired by Armstrong’s son who was recently diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. Main Source: From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
