Shanika Wagner

“LET THE HIGH PRAISES OF GOD BE HEARD!”  That’s the motto of gospel singer-songwriter and actress, Shanika Wagner. Born into a family where music and singing bring joy amid sorrow, Shanika began singing at the tender age of two years old.  While her grounding came in traditional Gospel music – she became known by singing in both secular and gospel venues in the D.M.V. area.  Once in the care of Christ, her confidence began to build, not in skill, but the anointing of God.

She has written for and recorded with the National Capital Baptist Convention Choir for their first project. She is a well-known participant in the National I.R.O.C.K. Choir. She released her debut single titled, All Hail the King, in 2018 and follow-up single, Cornerstone in 2020. She also sings with the BET Urban Nation Choir. She has performed and featured in many plays in the D.M.V. area and on film in the movie Behind Closed Doors: The Redemption of Love (2021). On occasion, Shanika prepares and serves food for the House of Ruth Women’s Shelter in Washington, D.C. and volunteers with the St. Teresa’s of Avila Parish to distribute food to hungry families.  She believes in faith activation through kingdom works.
