Who I am & What I do
Singer, songwriter, and musician. Arlene Whiteman is also a pianist and worshipper through the arts and dance.
She has a true heart of intercession through prayer, praise, and worship and her songs are a natural product of her time spent with the Lord. They are songs of her heart toward God and Him toward her.
“… God put a new song in my mouth and a song of praise to our a God, many will see and fear, and put their trust in The Lord…” Psalm 40:3
“… but be filled with The Spirit speaking to one another in psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart toward The Lord…” Ephesians 5:18:19
Arlene is Influenced by hymns, gospel, and contemporary Christian music. However, she has created a versatile style that is truly unique and her own. Her songs songs are not meant to be merely listened too but to draw one into an authentic encounter with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
I’ve been blessed to release three studio projects. With more songs currently being written I plan on releasing another new album later this year.

Don't take my word for it
“An Audience With The King”
Your love, commitment, support, encouragement and faithfulness made the prayer breakfast a blessing for all. Thank you for all you did throughout the weeks of preparation. I thank the Lord for you and for the joy of co-laboring together for His purposes. Praise the Lord! And I’m thanking Him for all your love and joy in worshipping our King! You ushered all the women into His powerful presence and the breakfast would not have been what it was without you (each one of you). May the Lord continue to pour out upon you an abundance of HIS Love, grace, and power.
It’s worth giving Arlene Whiteman’s CD “Shine” a listen. A beautiful voice giving positive energy to inspirational music, how could you go wrong? The title track is a melodic, uplifting song that invites you to join in and sing along. “Walk on Water” is a throwback to the girls’ groups of the 1960’s Motown era and is a bouncy and catchy tune. “Have Thine Own Way” is a song that transcends the Christian gospel genre and is reminiscent of the Judaic music in a similar vein to “Hava Nagila”. This CD feels like a giant hug to the world. Way to go, Ma. Whiteman!
``Only God Can``
If I was walking along the streets of New York at night contemplating and wondering, “Only God Can” would be the tune in the background. My love for this one will never fade away.
``Only God Can``
Out of the billions of songs out there, this one is my favorite. I can really relate to this song. Whenever I’m having a bad day, I turn it on and everything bad goes away. To be able to hear it live would be unparalleled. I can’t wait to see you! Please keep the amazing music coming!
