00:01 Magnify the Lord with me
00:04 Magnify the Lord
00:08 Jesus alone is worthy
00:11 Magnify Him
00:18 Hello and welcome to Magnify Him.
00:20 My name is Yvonne Lewis.
00:22 Thank you so much for tuning in.
00:24 Today we have two anointed young women
00:27 who will minister to you in song.
00:29 And that's the operative word here.
00:32 This program is never about performance.
00:34 It's always about ministry.
00:36 So don't miss the blessing that's in store
00:39 as we magnify our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
00:43 Magnify the Lord with me
00:46 Magnify Him
00:52 Elticia Buisson, did I say that right?
00:54 Yes! Yeah!
00:56 Is with us in Magnify Him.
00:57 Welcome, Elticia. Thank you.
00:59 Thank you for having me.
01:00 Oh, your voice is so wonderful.
01:03 How long have you been singing?
01:04 I've been singing probably since the crib.
01:07 My mother always had me and twin sister,
01:09 if we weren't singing, we were playing an instrument.
01:12 Oh, you have a twin sister? Yeah, we're twins.
01:14 Identical? Fraternal.
01:15 Fraternal, okay, okay.
01:17 Wow! And she sings as well.
01:18 She sings as well.
01:21 And are you in full-time music ministry?
01:23 I am part-time to full music ministry.
01:27 But I'm an Adventist school teacher.
01:29 Oh. What grade?
01:30 I teach high school history. Do you?
01:33 Yes. I love it.
01:35 Wow! Wow!
01:36 Well, you don't look like you're much older than
01:38 high school yourself.
01:39 God bless you.
01:41 Yes, you look amazing.
01:43 Well, I noticed when you were singing
01:44 that there's just such a clarity in your tone
01:49 I can't wait for our viewers to hear you.
01:51 What do you think
01:53 has been the most... the most important factor
01:58 in the development of your gift?
02:01 It's a two fold.
02:03 One is... the relationship that I've grown with Christ.
02:08 And I know what I am singing about.
02:11 I experience His grace and His mercy.
02:14 So when I get up on the stage, I'm singing directly to Him.
02:17 Yes. It's like a love song to Him.
02:20 And with that and just great teachers
02:23 who taught me how to listen and study music correctly.
02:27 With those two things, it's a win-win combination.
02:29 Oh, that's wonderful.
02:31 And you know what that it comes across,
02:32 you know, and that's what we're about here
02:35 on Magnify Him.
02:36 We really want... the artist
02:39 to show their relationship with the Lord.
02:42 We want the viewers to just kind of get a feel for that.
02:45 Viewers know that
02:47 you are going to sense that anointing
02:49 when you hear Elticia Buisson.
03:08 Gave me my hands
03:13 To reach out to man
03:18 To show them Your love
03:23 And Your perfect plan
03:27 You gave me my ears
03:32 I can hear Your voice so clear
03:37 I can hear the cries of sinners
03:41 But can I wipe away Their tears?
03:51 You gave me my voice
03:56 To speak Your Word
04:01 To sing all Your praises
04:06 To those who never heard
04:10 But with my eyes, I see a need
04:15 For more availability

14:50 I'd like to welcome Britney Charles to Magnify Him.
14:54 Welcome, Britney, so nice to have you.
14:56 Put your mike up
14:58 'cause we want to hear that pretty voice.
14:59 Thank you. So tell us where you're from.
15:02 I'm from the Virgin Islands. St. Croix, Virgin Islands.
15:05 St. Croix. Yes.
15:06 So you came all the way here to Thompsonville,
15:09 West Frankfort, Illinois from St. Croix.
15:12 Yes I did.
15:14 It's a paradise there, isn't it?
15:15 It is. Beautiful, absolutely.
15:16 Is this your first time in the States?
15:19 No, this is actually one of many times in States
15:21 but my first in Illinois.
15:23 Okay, okay.
15:24 Well, we're so happy to have you.
15:26 Thank you. Happy to be here.
15:28 Let me ask you, when...
15:30 when you were little, were you singing?
15:32 When did you start singing?
15:33 I actually started from the age of four.
15:36 And I did my first solo in kindergarten.
15:40 I can distinctly remember
15:44 that the song was Ten thousand angels cried.
15:49 You remember the first song you sang.
15:52 Well, do your sisters and brothers sing as well?
15:54 Well, my brother, he is studying out now.
15:56 He usually says that-- now that I'm gone from home.
15:58 I'm in college that he has,
16:00 you know, his time to emerge so.
16:03 Now, you're in college. Yes.
16:05 Where do you attend college?
16:06 Florida Hospital College of Health Sciences.
16:08 Oh, and what is your goal?
16:10 What are you going to be?
16:12 Well, I would love to become an Ob Gyn.
16:16 Oh, wonderful, wonderful. Thank you.
16:19 So when did you decide
16:21 that you wanted to sing for Jesus?
16:23 Well, pretty much at the age of three,
16:27 I started singing.
16:28 But I got the chance to do a solo at the school
16:33 and I jumped at the chance.
16:36 Tell us what the Lord means to you.
16:38 Well, I love the Lord very much.
16:40 And he has brought me a very long way
16:43 and through a lot of trials and tribulations.
16:46 And what I think is that in my way, in my own way,
16:51 I can give back to the Lord in His ministry
16:54 just with my music.
16:56 Yes, yes.
16:57 What is your vision for your ministry?
17:00 I know you want to be an Ob Gyn full-time,
17:03 but what do you want to do with music?
17:05 I also want to be like a travelling Ob Gyn.
17:09 And so that way it would be easier for me
17:13 to go from place to place and also minister in music
17:16 wherever I'm needed, you know, in any church
17:18 or something that I attend abroad.
17:20 That's wonderful, that's wonderful.
17:22 So where are you in college now?
17:24 Are you in your first or second year?
17:26 I'm actually in my third year.
17:27 You are third year. Yes.
17:28 Oh, that's incredible.
17:30 What's your favorite subject?
17:32 My favorite subject would have to be English.
17:34 English. Yes, I love English.
17:36 Literature or grammar or what aspects of English?
17:38 Well, all because I am a very avid reader
17:42 and also I love the grammar.
17:44 So it would have to be all aspects of English.
17:47 That's wonderful, that's wonderful.
17:49 Let me just ask you,
17:50 if there is a young woman out there
17:52 that wants to go to medical school
17:55 and wants to be in ministry,
17:57 what would you say to her in 30 seconds?
17:59 What would you say to her?
18:01 Well, I'd have to tell her that it's not easy
18:05 but you can't give up.
18:06 I have had many obstacles
18:08 and you're gonna have obstacles too.
18:10 Just keep on pushing.
18:12 Keep your goal in mind and just keep on pushing
18:16 and serving the Lord.
18:17 Okay, before we end,
18:19 who's your favorite artist?
18:20 Or who are your favorite artists?
18:22 My favorite artist, I would say,
18:24 would have to be CeCe Winans
18:25 and my favorite song by her is...
18:30 what is it?
18:32 Mercy said no.
18:33 Oh, yes--
18:34 I love that one. Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes.
18:36 Wonderful. Well, thank you so much.
18:37 And I know our viewers will be blessed by your ministry.
18:40 Thank you.
18:42 Listen to the ministry of Britney Charles.
18:46 She is determined to do well in school
18:49 as well as minister
18:50 for our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
18:53 Listen to her as she magnifies Him.
19:14 There are days when I feel
19:19 The best of me is ready To begin
19:24 Then there're days when I feel
19:29 I'm letting go And soaring on the wind
19:35 'Cause I've learned In laughter or in pain
19:41 How to survive
19:46 I get on my knees
19:51 I get on my knees
19:56 There I am before the love
20:00 That changes me
20:05 See I don't know how But there's power
20:09 When I'm on my knees
20:22 I can be in a crowd
20:27 Or by myself almost anywhere
20:33 When I feel there's a need
20:37 To talk with God He is Emmanuel
20:44 When I close my eyes
20:46 No darkness there
20:50 There's only light
20:54 I get on my knees
20:59 I get on my knees
21:04 There I am before the love
21:08 That changes me
21:14 See I don't know how But there's power
21:17 In the blue skies
21:22 In the midnight
21:28 When I'm on my knees
21:39 I get on my knees
21:44 I get on my knees
21:49 There I am before the love
21:53 That changes me
21:59 See I don't know how
22:01 But there's power When I'm on my
22:06 Oh, when I'm on my
22:13 When I'm on
22:14 My knees
22:30 On my knees
22:41 So many times in our lives
22:43 we go through trials and tribulation.
22:45 But brothers and sisters if you just hold on
22:48 your reward is heaven and we are going up yonder.

24:33 The heartache that it brings
24:37 The comfort in knowing

24:47 As God gives me grace
24:51 To run this Christian race
