“The song that I sing is “Gospel Chic,” Pickett said. “It’s one that I wrote and what it’s about is that I’m not too young to praise the Lord.

“I love gospel music. I started singing in church and that’s just the kind of music that I know.”

Pickett is a member of the Charles Henderson High School choral group and also sings with the County Line Baptist Church choir in Brundidge.

She is a sophomore at CHHS and hopes to have a career in gospel music, as a vocalist or a writer or, better still, as both.
