For this re-recorded version, Tamia's teams says, "the idea for the new version of the record was to record it the way songs used to be done, one take all the way through, no punches, no autotune or any other new technologies. Tamia and Claude Kelly assembled a group of Nashville country musicians, went into the studio, and had the band play the song live as Tamia recorded her vocals simultaneously. Tamia sang the song straight through 2 to 3 times and they kept the best take which will now appear on Beautiful Surprise."
Like the album's title and Tamia the person, the re-record is simply beautiful. Tamia has a way of making a heartfelt impact without even trying.
Beautiful Suprise will arrive in stores August 28th.
