I've been getting this question a lot and people want to know what happened because they thought I was a gospel artist. First off, I would like to say thank you for your concern and thank u for your support through the years. With this being my fourth album, every album serves a purpose. I've grown a lot and learned a lot since then. All of my albums have been my heart and this is where I am right now.
Not sure if u know this or not, but on my first album Life In Stereo, they said it wasn't gospel. It was very controversial for many. My second album 'The Lita Mae Show', they felt it wasn't churchy or serious enough for them. With my third album 'Girl Talk', they said the same things. Every album I've done, people expressed what they felt I should have or should not have done. Im saying that to say that I've always done and always will do what was in my heart. If I would've listened to what ppl wanted me to do, I wouldn't have gained the support I've gotten over the years and fans such as yourself.
Any genre that hinders the message is in the way. My fourth album Emotional is not about being Gospel or R&B. I don't make music with a genre in mind. It's me being vulnerable, hoping to help others through me sharing my life. I talk about life, love, and relationships. Unfortunately, 'Gospel' won't allow me to be as vulnerable as I am on this cd. It's where I am in my life right now. I'm being true to myself and I know that what leaves the heart reaches the heart. Again, I appreciate your support through the years and hope that you will support this album as well.
Love u much!! ♥
