Alisha's Mother, Brenda Wood Coggins, was a Gospel singer and pianist who always encouraged Alisha to use her talent for the Lord. She coached Alisha to sing her first church solo at age four.

Alisha grew up singing in Church, before attending Pensacola Christian College where she received bachelor's and master's degrees in music and speech performance. She went on to teach music and speech classes at Pensacola Christian for thirteen years, instilling in her students the Biblical philosophy her mother had taught to her.

God blessed Alisha with the opportunity to study voice for four more years under acclaimed Metropolitan Opera Tenor, Ray Gibbs. Alisha has been a featured soloist on numerous recordings and television broadcasts with Rejoice Music and has acted in over 20 plays and productions including "I Am The Way" with Jerome Hines.

Alisha desires to encourage young performers to use their talent for the Lord, remembering her mother's guidance: Only what's done for Jesus matters.
