Janet Paschal (October 18, 1956 - )


Janet Paschal began her Southern Gospel career singing with the LeFevres in the 1970s and remained with the group as the name was changed to The Rex Nelon Singers in 1977. After leaving the Nelons in 1981, Paschal joined the ministry of Jimmy Swaggart. Her popularity soared from exposure on Swaggart's television ministry and she soon had a recording contract.

With the added success of her first solo album, Paschal left the Swaggart organization and began traveling as a full-time soloist in 1986. She began writing songs around the same time. By the 1990s, Paschal was often featured on Gaither concert tours and subsequently joined the Gaither Homecoming Tour when it launched later in the same decade. She was regularly featured on the Gaither Gospel Series videos as well.
