First up, tell us a bit about yourself — what first got you into music?
Well, I am a married and the mother of three. I am a US Army and US Army National Guard veteran. I am the daughter of (Grammy nominated) George and Gwen McCrae. Through my parents, I always had a passion for music. Singing with my mother prepared me for today.
Were there any particular bands or artists you took inspiration from?
Yes! Of course, there are too many for me to name. However, most of my inspiration came from my mother. It all started with her.
How would you describe your musical style?
I would have to describe my style as Message Music and not the average Contemporary Gospel.
If you could collaborate with any living artist, who would it be?
Wow! That’s a tough question for me to answer because there are so many to choose from. But if I have to Choose one, it would be Tasha Cobbs Leonard.
Tell us about your new single, ‘Gods Way’. What’s it about, what are its themes?
‘God’s Way’ speaks for itself. It’s a song that challenges the awareness of our personal relationship with God. As a believer, how are we living for him? Are we serving him by man’s interpretation? Through our own understanding or are we serving him his way? It tells us to choose him because he loves us enough to choose us. Through his way there is life, so why not choose life?
When did you write it and where did you record it?
‘God’s Way’ was written and recorded in late 2016, at home with my dear husband and friends Mr. & Mrs Rickie Beasley. Mr. Beasley is also featured on the single.
How does ‘Gods Way’ represent your style?
It represents more of my desire to bring forth a conscious message that would promote self-awareness and to inspired hearts with the word of God.
What are your hopes for ‘Gods Way’?
My hope for ‘God’s Way’ is that it brings forth the message it was intended to deliver. That it touches the hearts of men and woman all over the globe.
What can you tell us about your plans for the rest of 2019?
Plans for the rest of 2019 is to complete the God’s Way project and to see what plans God has in stored for me.
Finally, if you could go back in time and give yourself one piece of advice, when would it be and what would you say?
I’m not sure of when, but if I could go back in time I would advise myself to always stay humble and remember to put God first in everything I do.
