Trina Nichelle Moore is a gospel/worship artist noted for her high energy worship and songwriting accolades that are inclusive of both traditional and contemporary gospel music. Born to a musical family, she was raised in the church serving in music ministry along with her parents and younger brother. In 1997, Trina moved to North Carolina to attend Livingstone College majoring in Music Education. During her teaching tenure of 10 years as choral director at Martin Luther King, Jr. Middle School (MLK) in Charlotte, North Carolina, she composed the song entitled “Purpose”. This inspirational song became MLK’s official school song in the spring of 2011. Along with local radio support and Internet radio air-play, the single was heard in the US and 37 international countries. Further support was garnered on local TV-WCNC Channel 36 with a feature on the evening news and a performance on the morning talk show, Charlotte Today. Her sophomore single, “Be Like Jesus”, was released in 2013. This upbeat, contemporary single is rich with soulful ad libs and eloquent phrases that highlight the incredible experience of newness and wholeness that are only available through salvation in Jesus Christ.
Trina’s additional passion is education. She is the founding principal of Nehemiah Enrichment Academy in Salisbury, North Carolina, and a guest lecturer with the University of Southern California where she received her Doctor of Education in 2019 in Organizational Change and Leadership. Trina serves as Minister of Music at United Christian Fellowship Church in Salisbury, North Carolina. Her passion as a social entrepreneur is to use music projects to create opportunities for youth to succeed in school and fulfill their God-ordained purpose.
The Biblical principle found in Matthew 22:37 (NKJV) serves as the motivating foundation for Trina in life and ministry. “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.” This Biblical commandment birthed Trina’s purpose for music ministry. That purpose is to give God all the glory, unite and reunite souls with Christ and encourage the Body of Christ. Trina believes it is simply not enough to say that one loves God. Godly love should be evident in action through humility, Godly character, and helping others live their lives with purpose.
Trina currently resides in Charlotte, NC.
