American Christian artist and two-time GRAMMY and Billboard Music Award nominee, Koryn Hawthorne, released a new single “SPEAK TO ME” off her highly anticipated sophomore album, I AM, which is available for pre-order now.
Unveiling the album cover, the I AM pre-order is live on Apple Music, iTunes, and Amazon Music, with the album to be released on Friday September 18th, comprising ten tracks.
Headed to Gospel and Urban AC radio in partnership with Epic Records, “Speak to Me” marks the second single off the new album.
In conjunction with the release of new track, Hawthorne released an accompanying music video directed by Nathan R. Smith.
The track features a sample from gospel icon, Donnie McClurkin’s popular melodic single “Speak to My Heart.” Receiving Donnie’s blessing, Hawthorne expresses her heartfelt appreciation:
“I’m really grateful and honored Donnie allowed me to do this. This song is legendary for me. I grew up listening to and singing it with my mom. It’s a Gospel classic and that’s really dope. I’m really excited about this, it’s like his way of passing on the baton to me to continue on with Gospel music, and where I’m taking it. I’m grateful he trusted me to do this,”
In addition to releasing new music, the songstress will be co-hosting the 35th Annual Stellar Awards, premiering on BET on August 23rd.
