Women of Standard: Hello Mrs. Hairston. How are you doing?
Teresa Hairston: Fantastic! How are you?
Awesome! The world knows you as the Founder of Gospel Today magazine. I noticed that you also have a lot of experience as a minister of music. Tell us a little about that.
I began playing the piano at 4 years old and became our church musician by the age seven. My skill evolved and I later participated in and directed several gospel choirs. I developed a genuine love for gospel music at a very early age although I played classical music and studied the regular music curriculum in college. Gospel music seemed to grab my soul and it spoke to me in a different way. Somewhere along the line, I knew that the lyrics of the music were very different and unique which is why I loved it!
