Akire Lotus / Bio

Akire Lotus is the God-Given stage name of Erika D. Newton. She grew up in the Western Edition of San Francisco, California. As a child of the 80’s, Erika unwillingly began to collect experiences that should have never been garnered by a child. Those same experiences pushed and pressed their way into her adulthood, but the story doesn’t end there.

Erika has used her past as a launching pad into her beaming present and illustrious future. She is a Lyricist/Songwriter & Author who is truly inspired by God Himself. She ministers with vision and passion so that others may be lifted up, inspired and encouraged.

With a heart for the youth & broken women, she is a member of His Presence Christian Worship Center in Brentwood, CA, where she ministers through her gift of music.

In addition to exalting the Name of Jesus & honoring Him using the musical talents He has so graciously given her, Erika has recently released a book of Christian Poetry, Prose & Spoken-Word entitled 'Floetic Ascension of a Lotus'. This book is available on Amazon in print & eBook format.

As a testament of God’s faithfulness and divine healing, Erika’s goal is to allow God to use her to minister His Word in multiple mediums. She looks forward to writing more music & poetry, that will tug at the hearts of those who are lost and teetering precariously on the edge of hopelessness.

Erika currently lives in Northern, CA.
