Naomi Raine was born in New York. Her parents, Lawrence and Marissa Felder, are known for their Gospel roots. She has shared her message on Jesus Christ to thousands who would listen.

Raine’s newest EP embodies warmth and holiday joy while honoring Jesus in her 3 original tracks.

She toured on the “It’s Time Tour,” an all-female worship tour with Tasha Cobbs Leonard, Tamela Mann, TAYA, Natalie Grant, and Katie Torwalt, to name a few.
Naomi Raine comments on this latest Holiday project, “Releasing this project has felt so natural! Yes, I love Christmas and the joy of the holiday season, but I hope that these songs create space for people to reflect on the generous gift that Jesus gave to the world,” says Naomi about the project. She concludes, “That profound, sacred truth is something we can celebrate all year long, but I hope these songs minister to those who need a reminder of the hope we have in Jesus amid the holiday hustle.”
