KHANYISA grew up in a big family – 9 brothers and sisters. She started to sing at the age of 7 and it soon became evident that she had real talent. She became part of school choirs and was continuously commended for her excellent performances. The point came in her life when she accepted Jesus Christ as her personal saviour and dedicated her musical talent to the Church and Gospel music. She was one of the founder members of the group YOUTH WITH MISSION in 1995. Khanyisa became the lead vocalist and they went on to achieve popularity across the country.
