About Ruth La'Ontra

Ruth La'Ontra is a modern gospel singer who debuted in 2013 with the album So Good. Born in Pinehurst, North Carolina on July 22, 1992, Ruth La Ontra Jones was the daughter of Bishop Avetra Jones, who practiced at Come as You Are Evangelistic Center in Aberdeen, North Carolina. When she decided to pursue a musical career, she dropped her last name and funded the release of an EP. It created enough of a stir to attract Tyscot Records, who signed the fledgling singer. The label put out So Good in November 2013 and it peaked at 19 on Billboard's Top Gospel Albums chart. For her 2017 sequel, I Got You, she teamed with producers Anthony Brown and Justin Savage. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
