Propelled by the Grammy® award winner’s strong, passionate voice, the song, originally slated to release later this year, is meant to serve as healing for a hurting people left with fears, questions, and anxiety about what’s happening in the world. Tamela decided to release the track - recorded earlier this year - as a reminder that there’s still love, hope and compassion in the world. BET Soul, BET Her and BET Gospel will do a broadcast premiere of the new single’s music video on Sunday, August 9.
“I hope the song will touch people, especially during the pandemic and civil unrest across the nation,” comments Tamela. “One part of the song says, ‘Can you hear the voices of your people crying out?’ People are crying out for so many different things. They’re praying now more than ever. We need God’s touch. We need the Lord to send a cleansing. We need a refreshing. We need to know the Lord is with us.”
Tamela has always created art that encourages people and draws them closer to the Lord. Her hit-laden music career includes such memorable songs as “Change Me,” “God Provides” and the unforgettable, Platinum-selling classic, “Take Me to the King.” Tamela has earned numerous accolades. In addition to scoring a Grammy®, she is also a BET Award® winner, Billboard® Music Award Winner, Gospel Music Stellar® Award Winner and multiple NAACP® Image Award and GMA Dove® Award recipient.
“Touch From You” is the centerpiece of a busy career that includes a new television show, Tyler Perry’s Assisted Living, which premieres September 2 on BET+ and finds Tamela and her husband, NAACP® Image Award winning actor/comedian David, reprising their roles as “Mr. Brown” and “Cora” originated in Perry’s successful “Madea” plays, films, and television series.
