Vibrant and empowering are words that capture the essence of Londa Larmond. Since her solo debut in 2001 with LOVE LETTERS, this Canadian gospel treasure has faithfully maintained her calling: bringing inspirational messages of God’s love with her authoritative and commanding voice, uplifting anyone who listens.
In 2019, Londa released her single, GREAT GOD, after releasing her first live album, GREAT THINGS in 2011. “My music’s purpose is to let people know that God is always with them and in the midst of a song being sung He’s able to accomplish their heart’s desire,” asserts Londa. “He is with us through thick and thin, and He wants and is ready to do great and powerful things in our lives.”
In 2021, Londa came back with her version of GOODNESS OF GOD. This song is an anthem in Londa Larmond’s life. Though it’s been re-recorded by many, Londa wanted to record it in typical “Londa Larmond” style adding an uplifting bouncing groove as a reprise. “Having gone through marriage, divorce and now being a single parent - it hasn’t been easy to say the least, but God HAS BEEN and CONTINUES to be FAITHFUL!!” declares Londa. This song truly embodies how Londa feels about her Heavenly Father! It’s a testament of His goodness towards her and her 2 sons. She is eternally grateful for all that He has done for her and has made it her vow to always sing about the GOODNESS OF GOD.
Born and raised in Toronto, Canada, to loving Jamaican parents, Ethan and Evan, Londa’s childhood is characterized by Gospel music and service. Alongside her musician father and brothers, Londa was singing at church since the age of 7, and performing professionally since 14, as a member of Toronto’s renowned Youth Outreach Mass Choir. Londa continued her musical career as part of the Gospel Soul Sisters before joining the internationally acclaimed Sharon Riley & Faith Chorale.
Londa’s powerful voice led her to appear in the blockbuster film, The Blues Brothers 2000. Under the direction of John Landis, Londa performed in the film and recorded the Grammy nominated, Certified Gold (U.S.) soundtrack alongside musical icons Aretha Franklin, Erykah Badu, James Brown, Sam Moore, Taj Mahal, Bo Diddley, Isaac Hayes, Steve Winwood and Eric Clapton. She also performed in the Tony Award-Winning Musical Caroline or Change, where she was nominated for “Best Female Performance in a Musical”. Under the direction of Robert McQueen, Londa worked alongside well- known actors, such as, Arlene Duncan (Little Mosque On The Prairie – TV) and Shawn Wright (Jersey Boys and Mamma Mia – Theatre). Caroline or Change won the Dora Award for "Outstanding Production of a Musical". Londa has also toured the UK and the Caribbean and performed in various powerful theatrical productions, such as, Melody of Deception, Trust God and Amazing Grace, under the direction of Dr. Elaine Brown-Spencer.
Her solo debut album, LOVE LETTERS, established Londa as a one of Canada’s Gospel music trailblazers with international acclaim. A winner of the Canadian Urban Music Awards for Best Gospel Recording, GMA Dove Awards nominee for "Urban Album of the Year" and a JUNO Award nominee for "Best Gospel Album of the Year", Love Letters, introduced a new genre of soulful-jazz and urban- pop grooves that marked the beginning of a legacy, which Londa continues today with GREAT THINGS.
