In celebration of Black Music Month, Gospel recording artist Latice Crawford is back with her new single, “Choose Me”. The single is from her EP, Diary of a Church Girl, which debuted at No. 15 on Billboard’s Top Gospel Albums chart. Latice Crawford describes “Choose Me” as “a song about our human need and desire to be accepted.”
“Choose Me” has a good message (as do most Gospel songs), and Latice’s voice is great, but it lacks power and punch. Every time the chorus dropped, I kept waiting for a boom in rapturous vocals, but it just didn’t occur. “Choose Me” could maybe benefit with the addition of other vocalists, particular a gospel choir.
Most are familiar with Latice Crawford as the second runner-up of Season 2 of BET’s “Sunday Best.” Since that time, she has stayed busy releasing her 2014 debut self-titled album. This upcoming July 4th weekend she is slated to take part in the ESSENCE Festival’s All-Star Gospel Tribute to The Clark Sisters, as well as other key events in New Orleans.
