By fourteen years old she was showcasing her voice and on-stage presence in regional beauty pageants, and no one was surprised that she was crowned “queen” of the South Texas Region! Today she’s still a show off, still gifted, still beautiful, but she’s royalty on a much higher level!
In 1991, Lisa Lamb, became the lead singer for a Kingsville based Tejano band called “Mestizo.” As the opening act for well known singer Alex Montez, Lisa grabbed the attention of the star producer and they made plans to work on a new project together. It would launch her career into the bright lights!
With Lisa’s first album, “I Want To Dream” finished, Alex shopped the project to RCA/BMG Records which didn’t have a Tejano label—until they heard Lisa! They debuted her album in May of 1995, just a month after super-star Selena’s death. Everyone thought Lisa’s album would be buried in the fan’s mourning and the media focus on the singer’s tragic end. Instead her album took off as the public looked to her to fill Selena’s spot! Tours and TV shows in the US and Mexico followed with extensive radio promotions. Her marketing campaign raised the promotion standards to new levels! Then Lisa became the talk of the industry when she received the Grammy nomination for her 2nd album, “Destiny.”
Her star was rising! But there was a storm brewing on the horizon. Lisa was getting high on her musical success, the love of her fans, and a growing cocaine addiction. Everyone was grabbing for a piece of the action. Her new found love with Alex Montez was growing more turbulent all the time and he was unable to protect her as they drifted apart. When Alex almost succeeded in committing suicide, it took her down! There had to be something better than this ahead! There was! Lisa was born-again on August 26, 1996! Alex and Lisa got back together and were married in 1997. They began attending church together and after four years of intense study and discipleship answered a call to become pastors of La Vida Regional Cuadrangular.
Today Lisa is a lead singer in the English and Mexican church bands, still capturing the hearts of her audience (including the Lord she loves!). She’s still showing-off, only now it’s as a wife, mother of Alyssa and Ana, co-pastor, and a Princess of God!
