ENSPIRE Contributor: Keegan Kerns
Tamela Mann, Grammy® Award-Winning Artist, NAACP Image® Award-Winning Actress, Songwriter, and Producer, releases her new Tillymann Music album, Overcomer, through The Orchard Distribution today, following several years of evolution and change in her life. Tamela’s music now has a new feeling of authority and urgency; she has lived these songs and is eager to share her strength and purpose with the world.
Propelled by the singer’s strong, passionate vocals and her newfound voice as a songwriter, each of the 12 tracks on Overcomer was conceived to bring healing and hope to a world resetting after a tumultuous chapter in its history. There is plenty to unpack from a lyrical standpoint, and Tamela is at the writing helm on most songs. “I poured my experiences into the lyrics, putting my heart and soul into the words on this album,” Tamela says. “It’s me looking at my life and the things I was dealing with, trying to learn from those things, and doing what I can to overcome them.”
Overcomer may be Tamela’s most powerful work to date, with each song finding a unique but equally beautiful voice. The album was executive produced by Tamela and her husband, Music Producer, and NAACP Image® Award-Winning Actor/Comedian David Mann, with production quarterbacked by a cadre of all-star producers and writers. In addition, several noticeable special guests appear, including Kirk Franklin and Wyclef Jean on the “Hello God” track and The Fellas on her current single “Help Me” among many others.
