Tamela Mann has finally released a video for her truth telling, Grammy-nominated anthem, “Take Me To The King” The video features Tamela’s powerhouse live performance of “Take Me To The King,” which moved the audience to worship along with Tamela on the 2013 Stellar Gospel Music Awards. And, she looks stunning, to boot. Enjoy.
What is there to say about this record except it has the right title. The song is guaranteed to heat up those special evenings and the video warms things up without going too far and leaves the ending of the story up to imagination of the viewer. Enjoy.

Listening to Laura Turner’s first single, “Voice of Heaven” is truly like capturing the smile of God. It is bathed with compassion, humility and the tearful confession of a renewed heart. With the combination of Turner’s vocals along with the theatrical production of this song, this single carries a stirring emotion that beacons as a lighthouse in the still darkness. Take a listen for yourself and tell us what you think.
