Return to the Center Sampler
Take the texture and tone of Rachelle Ferrell, the fervor and conviction of Tramaine Hawkins, the sincerity and authenticity of CeCe Winans; mix it with the lyrical interpretation and song styling of Oleta Adams and the range of Krystal Murden with a unique, healing connection in song and you have an approximate description of the vocal stylings of De-Ann Lott (pronounced Dionn). Though she has been in the background for years, she has worked with some of the top architects of contemporary gospel music including musical mentor, Daryl Coley, and many others. The songs included on the sampler are from the forthcoming CD, Return to the Center. They are all original tunes co-written with Jamie Hawkins from the royal family of gospel, The Hawkins Family (Tramaine, Walter, Edwin). This is a contemporary sound that focuses on personal relationship with God and human aspects of that relationship through trials and the challenges of daily life.
