Getting to Know Me More

If all jobs had the same pay and hours, what job would you like to have?
I’d like to be a writer for Hallmark or a music producer.

Who has been the biggest inspiration in your life? Why?
My brother, David Binion. He’s been my best friend since we were kids. His writing and musical abilities have always inspired me, but his love and passion for God’s presence are the biggest inspiration! He is the most authentic Christian I know, and I trust him more than anyone!

What’s your biggest mic drop moment?
My biggest “mic drop” moment would be when I played drums for awarding-winning Gospel artist, Andrae Crouch. When the song we played ended, he smiled at me and said, “Girl, you can play! Let’s do it again!”

If I asked your high school friends what they thought you would be doing today, what would they say?
My high school friends were my brothers because we were home schooled in a Greyhound bus that traveled across the country. I’m sure they would tell you that I would either be singing or playing drums for someone.

What are you interested in that most people aren’t?
Well, most women are not interested in hunting. However,  I have been hunting many times with my oldest brothers, and I have three ram trophies to prove it! I love to shoot, but my favorite part is spending time with my bros!

What’s the most ridiculous thing you have ever bought?
Avon products. Don’t do it!!! Just stick with the high-priced stuff because it actually works!

If you could meet anyone from the Bible, who would it be and what would you ask them? (Besides Jesus)
I’d love to meet the woman with the alabaster box. I have a million questions for her!

How did you become a Daystar Singer?
I have known Marcus and Joni for over 30 years! My brother, David, and I actually worked on Joni’s second album, Psalms, Hymns and Spiritual Songs, and our families share a rich musical history. A few years ago, I sent her a song that I’d been working on and she graciously responded by inviting me to become an official part of the team! It’s been such an exciting journey, and my passion to write and sing music inspired by God’s love is stronger than ever. I’m so grateful for this opportunity as a Daystar Singer to reach into the most hurting place in someone’s heart and bring healing through the life-changing power of worship!

What is your funniest moment as a Daystar Singer?
It’s hard to choose just one because I have so many! My silly sense of humor always manages to make its way into our time together. No matter what we’re doing, we always have fun. Whether it’s on stage worshipping, working on the set of a music video production, or just hanging out, this group is like a family. We laugh a lot and love big!

Tell us about a time when God has been great in your life.
There was a ten-year period of time when I was a drug addict. I must have tried every drug imaginable as a way to medicate my way out of the depression I felt over the abuse I suffered as a child. The story is very long and involved, but the outcome is a miracle! God set me free–not only from drug addiction–but from the darkness of depression. He loved me back to life!

Bio


Lisa Binion’s passion for music and ministry began at an early age when she would travel across America with her parents. At each stop, they would preach the Gospel while Lisa and her five siblings would sing and lead worship. By age 18, she and her brother, David, embarked on a new journey and began writing, singing, and producing their own projects.

As an artist for Word Records, God continued opening new doors for Lisa. In the years that followed, she traveled and worked with various artists, worship teams, and bands before taking on more permanent roles in ministry as a pastor and later a drummer at Covenant Church in Carrollton, Texas.

Today, as member of the Daystar Singers, Lisa’s heart for worship is stronger than ever. As a writer on their latest album, Great God, she remains endlessly inspired at the goodness, grace, and mercy of her loving Father.
