The Pulse of Entertainment: Koryn Hawthorne’s ‘I Am’ is About Jesus Christ, ‘Pray’ is the 1st Single
“It happened super organic,” said two-time Grammy-nominated Koryn Hawthorne about her sophomore album “I Am” (RCA Inspiration). “I think overall the message is Jesus Christ. The album feels like a journey, it moves…signifies strength.”
The new single “Pray” is co-written by Hawthorne, Troy Taylor, Jeremy Hicks, and Daniels Breland, with Taylor and Hicks producing. The single was released with an accompanying music video that premiered on BET Networks. “Pray” is the projects’ first single release.
“Show the life of Jesus Christ. I think God is trying to show who ‘you’ are,” said the Billboard Award winner about her “musical ministry” message. “The single (“Pray”), I let it organically happen.”
The Dove Award winner debuted in 2018 with the “Unstoppable” album on RCA Inspiration. That year she garnered a record-breaking Billboard title on the “Hot Gospel Songs Chart” for the single “Won’t He Do It” having the longest run as #1. That “Unstoppable” album also garnered two Grammy Award nominations for the singles “Won’t He Do It” and “Speak the Name.” She went on to perform, what is now her signature Certified Gold single, “Won’t He Do It” at the 50th Annual Essence Festival” and recently hosted the 35th Annual Stellar Awards. www.KorynHawthorne.com
