Five years ago, Latice Crawford stepped on to the music scene when she was a finalist on BET's Sunday Best. And once the world heard her anointed, the gospel musical landscape shifted.
Crawford' s voice blew the judges away on the show because she is truly blessed with this special gift. She continues to soar as an artist and strives to record an album that will take listeners on a journey of faith, hope, and joy.
Crawford released her self-titled debut album on RCA Inspiration on January 28, 2014. The Queens native worked with top-notch producers Bruce Robinson, and Denarius "Motesart" Motes on the 10-track set.
"There aren't any words that can fully express my excitement about the release of my debut album,” said Crawford. "It was great to work with producers like Bruce and Motesart. The goal was to make my life experience transparent, break the mold, and share my intimate conversations with God in hopes to inspire others."
"There," the album's first single is number #19 on the Billboard Gospel Chart which shows her fans loyalty to her music. The inspirational single talks about God's unchanging hand and being there for his children during their time of need. Just when you think all hope is lost, God is on your side, now and forever. This is a record that people need to hear when they are going through trying times.
"The first single, "There" speaks about God showing up in our season of desolation. Over the groovy, melodic track Latice brings a feeling of warmth and happiness as she declares, "rain or shine…just when I need you… like a superhero, right on time to make a way, you're right there.”
As Crawford continues to embark on a divine journey in the entertainment industry, she believes this album will touch the hearts of believers and non-believers. She feels it is her duty to give back to God's children by using her voice as a vessel to make people understand that their life has meaning and purpose.
"It's not about religion, it's about the relationship. I want people to know that I am someone who lives and walks what they say," said Crawford.
