Integrity Music welcomes Miami-based singer/songwriter and worship leader Steph Alessi Muiña to the family. In introducing Muiña, the label released her debut single, "Wouldn't Change A Thing," along with the official music video. Her debut song will also be going for adds at radio beginning next week, but it has already been added by stations ahead of the add date.
Born and raised in her parents' church, Metro Life Church in Miami, along with her three siblings, Muiña developed a deep love and calling for God's church at a young age discovering her musical gifts. As the current director of worship at the church, she has grown into her passion and craft of songwriting in her community. She released an independent EP in 2017 along with many projects with Metro Life Worship, and said she is excited to share her story through her own songs with this first single followed by an EP next year.
“My songs are a mirror to my journey with the Lord,” Muiña says. “I don’t hide but use them (the songs) to process what I am learning, figuring out, and going through. I started writing and journaling songs as a child when I went through a time of loneliness and developed a close relationship with the Lord. I think this is where I learned how to process my emotions. Songwriting was and is like therapy to me."
After a difficult time in her 20s, she was reminded of her early years of journaling and how that prepared the path for her to put her journey into songs. Like many, this year has been a season of reflection and even clarity during the pandemic. She recalls that, even during this season of uncertainty, “God's unwavering trust and timing were evident from meeting and marrying her husband to being able to collaborate with songwriters all over the country even during a global crisis.”
She shares, “During a time I thought I'd be set back due to everything going on, it actually really accelerated me forward and the timing couldn’t be more perfect. My testimony and my journey lined up with the timing of Integrity Music, and I’m so honored by the opportunity to put my songs out there and have an incredible team partnering with me to help people hear them and be ministered to by them.”
The debut single, "Wouldn't Change A Thing," focuses on the theme of coming out of a hard season and singing the faithfulness of God.
