Judy Martin Hess is certainly no stranger to Christian music, having been a part of the, already legendary, Martins. As a part of The Martins, Judy has received 3 Grammy nominations, multiple Dove Awards, and countless fan awards. With career highlights that include appearances at New York’s Carnegie Hall, The White House, and nearly a decade of performances on Bill Gaither’s award-winning video and concert series, one could understand if this, now seasoned, singer might be apt to hide behind some of the acclaim and find a more quiet place to live, but Judy Martin Hess remains steadfast in her calling to be out front and unguarded.
“I feel better, more balanced, and closer to whole when I sing and speak about my struggles. It keeps me reminded of what God has brought me through and what He was done for me and the people I love,” says Judy. “I am becoming more and more comfortable with myself and who God wants to be in me.”
Judy lives in Columbus, GA, with her husband, Jake Hess Jr. They have 4 children; Jake, Hannah, Emma, and Isaac.
