    Canas’ Voice members Jody McBrayer, TaRanda Greene, & Doug Anderson found their group identity and name from the John 2 account of Jesus turning water into wine at a wedding feast in Cana. “What is so significant to the three of us is the vessels Jesus used to create that miracle,” Greene explains. “They were broken and old, had fulfilled their purpose and had seen better days, but Jesus used them for a purpose that was even better than the first. As we sang our first note together, we realized God isn't finished with us. Just like those broken vessels, we have been repurposed for such a time as this. We want to carry the gospel to the world with humility, knowing where we've come from, knowing God is guiding our every step; believing in the Heavenly Father to be exactly who He is. We stand as a voice for the broken and wounded, redeemed by the blood of the Lamb for a higher calling.”  McBrayer adds, “Our prayer is that God would give us a platform to change the lives of many people by telling of His grace and mercy.”

    As the trio uses the stage to minister from personal experience of persevering through life’s difficulties, Cana’s Voice strives to help audiences understand the importance of pressing on through hard times and believing that God has a greater plan. of us,” Describing the music industry as a “huge megaphone” to change lives by telling of God’s grace, mercy, and redemption, McBrayer said of the trio, “I don’t have delusions of grandeur. I just want people to hear and be touched by the music.”  Their sophomore release, “Don’t Wanna Miss This” releases September 13th.
