"Nothing's Gonna Steal My Joy" is Joani Tabor's motto. This desire to have her life reflect God's joy is always at the forefront of her music. The impact is unmistakable when Joani, with bubbling personality, conveys her enthusiastic faith in concert. She has witnessed over 50,000 decisions for Christ in 20 years.
JOANI IS A COMMUNICATOR. Audiences will find her warm stage presence and her unassuming manner very refreshing. She has that rare ability to combine sincerity with excellence of presentation. Her delightful combination of music with many styles of songs appeals to listeners of every age. Joani’s clear voice which covers an astonishing four octaves has been best described as “intense vocal artistry”. She also plays the piano, organ, and flute. She is also in demand as a women’s speaker.
Born in Bluefield, West Virginia, she is no stranger to tragedy. At age eleven her childhood was suddenly interrupted when her father passed away. She credits her father, a choir director, for her love of music. A year later, when she became a Christian, Joani says, "Christ became my father.” Joani is a pastor's wife. Her husband, Dr. Glenn A. Tabor, Jr., prayerfully supports her ministry. The couple lost a child, and again she found comfort in Christ.
In 1990 Joani signed her first professional contract. This recording featured a national release, "Nothing's Gonna Steal My Joy". The song was charted nationally, an amazing accomplishment for a new artist's first release! She has had eleven songs to chart on the national Christian music charts. Every single release has been a national "hit". In all Joani has completed fifteen recording projects, a live video, and recordings of her seminar teachings.
