If you think that Tasha Page-Lockhart snatched the winning spot on the season 6 of “Sunday Best” because she’s the daughter of gospel great Lisa Page Brooks, think again. Tasha may have grown up with the guidance of her parents, but she really strives to stand on her own.
“I didn’t think I was gonna win,” Tasha told Sister 2 Sister. “I never thought I was good enough to compete. Music has always been a part of my family, and my mother is my mentor.” Tasha said that a friend paid for her ticket to Houston, Texas, where the singer ultimately won the competition. “When I got there, people had their assumptions about me because of who my mother was,” Tasha said. “A lot of the contestants were not friendly toward me, but I had to put in long hours. I was up some nights, all night, rehearsing songs for the tapings.”
