Tasha Cobbs Leonard – The Church I Grew Up In
Tasha Cobbs Leonard, stalwart Gospel singer, provides another song “The Church I Grew Up In” from her live-recorded new collection, HYMNS, which will be released on October 7th through Motown Gospel. The project’s first song, “The Moment,” comes before the upbeat, appealing tune.
“The Church I Grew Up In” gives audience members a glimpse into Tasha’s childhood as she delivers a liberating narrative about how the Church influenced her life and helped shape who she is now.
“… If you want to know where my set of experiences began, if you want to know why I am the way I am, it’s the church where I spent my childhood,” she sung. They really ring the congregational bells. It’s where I learned the gospel and where my mother taught me to sing.”
“..You may try to convince me that the congregation isn’t alive today, but I know it is, so I’ll tell my children,”
the Grammy-Award-winning diva sang as she consoled us that the Church is still alive today.
Tasha Cobbs Leonard’s “Hymn,” which is now available for pre-order, features a variety of guests who help to elevate the collection as one of the year’s top gospel tasks. Mary, The Walls Group, Natalie Grant, Kierra Sheard, and many more will make appearances on the upcoming 24-track album.
“Hymn” is a follow-up to Tasha Cobb Leonard’s chart-topping compilation, “Eminence” (Live At The Ryman), which was released in 2020.
