Four ladies of gospel music from the DMV you should be listening to

Hear music from a few amazing women in the DMV

There is no question that the DMV is rich with gospel music talent. Nestled among the abundance of talent are so many phenomenal women singing  gospel music and displaying their musical prowess. In case you have not grabbed their music yet, here is a look at just four of the many women of gospel that the DMV area is being blessed with.

Kendall King Ever since her debut in 2011 with “Faithful”, Kendall has become a staple on the gospel music scene. Kendall is one of gospel music’s most versatile artists. Not only is she a gifted singer, she is a prolific, songwriter, musician, producer, minister of music, and worship leader. She has her own unique style and no one would ever consider her voice run-of-the-mill. This year she released her much-anticipated live album, New Dimension. The live praise and worship recording features refreshing and uplifting music penned by Kendall. Andrew Robinson, Roderick Giles, Elise Nicole Lewis, Doretha Allen-Sampson, Lisa Locke and Rick A. Pringle join her on lead vocals. The single, “That’s Why” is a welcome reminder that God is always making a way.

Tynette Daniels. There are some singers whose voice you hear and you immediately think that they have got to release music. Tynette Daniels is that person who most of the DMV has been waiting on to drop music. This year, the singer made it a reality and released her first single, “Miracle.” The song delivered what most fans had come to expect from Daniels’ vocal skills and was well-received.

JLashawn Tillery-Williams. She is well known as a solid in-demand background vocalist. Hailing from a musical family,  her mom is the renowned Lois Tillery-Moore of the B&L singers and her brother, Stellar Award nominee John Tillery. 2020 has turned out to be JLaShawn’s year. She has taken to the stage with her first solo project, “He Won’t Leave You.” The song is a beautiful interpretation of the Richard Smallwood classic.

Andrea Williams. No stranger to the gospel music industry, Andrea Williams served as publicist for some of gospel’s top artist. She launched her career as a singer last year with an instrumental and has not looked back. She has continued to release a string of engaging singles. Her latest single is an inspirational, CCM song called “Who Do I Run To”.  Andrea is nominated for a 2021 Wammie.

You can find music from these artists on all digital platforms.
