Dawn McClain Releases Her Much Anticipated Music Video, "State of Emotion"
By: KLPR Group, LLC
When asked how the song came about Ms. McClain stated, "Gordon wrote this song for me based off of a conversation he and I were having, as we were in route from NYC to DC for his concert (I was his background singer). We hadn't seen each other in a while, so we were trying to catch up. But Gordon noticed that every time he asked about how I was doing or what was going on in my life, I would deflect to my boyfriend (at the time) or my daughter, or the people around me, but never myself. He told me that I need to find love and completion within myself, and that it was alright to love myself first and do what makes me happy. I hadn't even realized that I was neglecting myself."
"Months later, Wizard Jones gave me the beat, and said "If you can write something good to this, I'll give it to you". I knew just the person to send it to. When Gordon finished the song (which only took him 2 days to write, record, and have it mixed), he told me "now Dawn I wrote this song for you, so you never forget our conversation. I want you to sing this song, hit those high soprano notes, and swivel those hips of yours on the stage!"
Mr. Chambers certainly blessed her with an amazing song and Ms. McClain did justice to it. Click the links below to view the video.

About Dawn McClain
Hailing from Los Angeles, California, Dawn McClain has emerged from the same rich soil of so many other great African American singers. Like so many powerhouses and trailblazers in music, Dawn began singing in the church at a very early age. An 80's baby with a splash of 60's and 70's influence, and a sprinkle of gospel roots, she blends and bridges the generation gap between these eras in music, melodically suspending time.
Ms. McClain is a Veteran of the United States Air Force, and a natural humanitarian and advocate for women’s health and cancer awareness. Dawn was diagnosed in 2010 with ovarian cancer. Never one to faultier she embraced cancer with GOD’s grace and has been in remission now for four years.
Dawn McClain calls the show she gives “The Experience”, because it is just “that” an Experience. If you ask her, how she would like to live out the rest of her days… She would say, “Performing”
Ms. McClain’s career thus far has been a journey filled with “rare” opportunity for a independent artist. She calls it a blessing and God’s grace, that her projects (“The Love Project”, “Dance Chronicles”, and her most recent release “Life is Beautiful” ) were touched with production and co-writing collaborations, from some of the industry’s most sought after Grammy nominated writers and producers. She has graced the stage and performed with Industry legends such as Roberta Flack, Jeane Carne, Ann Nesby, Kem, Gordon Chambers, Tony Terry, Mint Condition, K-Ci & Jo-Jo, Stevie Wonder, N' Dambi Blu, Liv Warfield, Lela James, Erykah Badu, Donnie, Frank McComb, Johnny Gill, Malcom Jamal Warner, and Chrisette Michele.
