Y’Anna (pronounced EE-AH-NAH) Crawley, winner of BET’s Sunday Best second season, will release her debut album, The Promise, on August 24th via Imago Dei Music Group. Crawley says working on the âPromiseâ have been an amazing blessing in her life. “With everything that I’ve gone through, all my ups and downs, with people talking about me and saying that I would never make it because I had two kids, I was resting on God’s promise,” she said. “I’m hoping that people who listen to this CD will be uplifted and encouraged. I want them to realize that dreams do come true, so you should never give up on your dreams. When you get knocked down you get back up and just keep pressing through.” The album is lead by the mid-tempo single and title track, âThe Promise,â which talks about trusting Gods word. Y’Anna is looking forward to spreading a message of faith and hope through âThe Promise.â “The message in all my songs is that no matter what, no matter how down you are, there is hope right now-you are still blessed,” That message is also her personal testimony. “To go through the fire and, like the Scripture says, to come out pure as gold-that’s how I feel, that I’m pure as gold, like the light is just shining and everybody can see.” The Promise is produced by Busta and Shavoni (Kirk Franklin, Yolanda Adams), the production team of PAJAM-J. Moss, Paul Allen and Walter Kearney (Kelly Price, *NSYNC, Destiny’s Child, Karen Clark Sheard) and Ryan Sims. Jim Wright (Jennifer Hudson, Mariah Carey, Sounds of Blackness, Ann Nesby) also contributed to the project, which was recorded at the Embassy Row Recording Studio in Los Angeles, CA.
