-- - DeAnna Ransom has a heart to help women. The powerhouse gospel vocalist has used her God-given platform to encourage and inspire with her testimony of overcoming. The award-winning singer’s brand new single, “Never Say Never…Again”
, reminds women that in spite of past hurts, they can indeed love again. To complement the single release, DeAnna is premiering the release of the video for “Never Say Never…Again”
on Thursday, June 28, 2012 online. Hosted on the premier network of Gospel Pioneer Dr. Bobby Jones, the online video release will be held exclusively at drbobbyjonesmagazine.ning.com. In addition to watching the video, attendees will be able to catch the first sneak peek of new music from the new soon to be released CD, to chime in, share their thoughts and ask questions in the site’s chat room speaking directly with Ransom and other special guests. To RSVP for the event, log on to drbobbyjonesmagazine.ning.com.
The video, which already received rave reviews at a recent Philadelphia screening, tackles issues very relevant in today’s society and captures some of Ransom’s real story. DeAnna says, "I wrote ‘Never Say Never...Again’
based on my real life experience. Alone, broken, hurt, fearful and crying myself to sleep every night for three years thinking that was how it was always going to be; I was miserable. Then I really embraced God's love, healing and rebuilding and my life was transformed. I want all of my sisters (and brothers!) who have been hurt or are hurting, to know that the pain of a battered or broken heart is not greater than the transforming love of God who will make you and your life brand new by allowing Him to love you back to wholeness. I want everyone to get their smile, their trust and their future back when they watch this video."
DeAnna’s new CD, Never Say Never…Again, is the psalmist’s third project and is produced by GRAMMY Award Winner Herb Middleton. The CD will hit stores and online distribution outlets on Tuesday, July 24, 2012. Also in July, Ransom will be a headliner for the 2012 Rhythm of Gospel Awards on Saturday, July 28th in Jacksonville, FL. The artist is up for a number of awards herself including Contemporary Female Vocalist of the Year and Rhythm of Gospel Music Video of the Year for “I Hear You LIVE”. Just a day later, DeAnna will be traveling to Atlanta for the 2012 En Sound Music Awards where the six-time nominee will be headlining the awards program.
Ransom is a 2010 Black Essence Award Winner, a 2011 Rhythm of Gospel Award Winner (and 2012 Rhythm of Gospel Nominee), and a 2012 EnSound Music Awards Nominee known for delivering songs like no one else in the genre. Fusing soul, jazz and R&B sounds, DeAnna’s career catapulted with the release of her CD, I Hear You. More information about DeAnna Ransom can be found at www.DeAnnaRansom.com.
