"Arnetta Murrill-Crooms, a native of Wilmington, NC, is known for her pure, yet raspy, soulful and heart-piercing sound that has captured the attention of many throughout her singing career. “Netta” as she is affectionately called by her loved ones, believes that her love for music and ministry allows her to transcend religious barriers by meeting people without judgment and condemnation. With the love of God, her ministry offers a way of escape through its empowering, lyrical message.
Singing with her family group, The Murrills, she led the dynamic single “There’s a Healing” on the debut album Family Prayer, which earned the group Grammy and Stellar Award nominations. Through a sincere heart of worship, Netta has also been featured on notable projects including Bishop T.D. Jakes’ “Usher Me,” as well as Donald Lawrence’s “ I Am God,” “In The Presence Of The King,” and “Love The Hurt Away.” Through her affiliation with Donald Lawrence and the Tri-city Singers, Arnetta has accumulated several Stellar and Dove awards, in addition to Grammy nominations. She has also appeared in the 2001 film “Boycott” singing “What a Time,” which starred Terrence Howard and Jeffrey Wright. Her voice can also be heard on the 1996 film “The Associates,” starring Whoopi Goldberg.
Arnetta has a degree in Sociology and is a recent graduate from the Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching as a Certified Professional Coach (CPC). Through her experience she has come to believe that life coaching, music and ministry plays a vital role in her career. Passionately driven to helping people, Netta writes inspiring music that speaks to the very heart of man, drawing them closer to God.
With every opportunity granted, Arnetta realizes it has not come by chance but through divine assistance. She counts it a privilege to serve others through the gifts which have been given to her."
