Even though Jayna loves to sing all kinds of music, her roots are truly Gospel. Here she performs “Take Me to the King” (in a lower octave lol) for New Harvest Family Worship Center’s first year anniversary.

Tamela Mann & Kirk Franklin (on the piano) did a phenomenal job on “Take Me To The King.” I’m sure the atmosphere totally changed. And Tamela looks awesome!!

Tamela Mann is one woman who seems to have it all in one package, she sings, she acts, a multi award winner, a gospel phenomenon and God knows what next. Before I go too far, I think its time to delve into her matter.
As a gospel singer and an American actress who began acting in 1999 when she was discovered by Tyler Perry, known for her role as Cora in Tyler Perry’s plays, including I Can Do Bad All By Myself, Diary of a Mad Black Woman, Madea’s Family Reunion, Madea’s Class Reunion, Meet the Browns, and What’s Done in the Dark, it was obvious she set her priorities and aims vividly.
Tamela’s musical career began when she joined with the multi-grammy award winning and double platinum gospel phenomenon Kirk Franklin and the Family.
Besides those, has also enjoyed collaborating and performing with numerous artists such as Yolanda Adams, Mary J. Blige, Al Green, Celine Dion, Bono, R. Kelly and Fred Hammond. After reading all of that, I decided to say that Tamela is so on point and she as played her role differently on too many productive things doing it big with renowned acts. She is the unusually talented type of woman who blossoms wherever she sets her feet. We can always look through and conclude that she is 100% dedicated and loves what she does. I love Tamela Mann and I am waiting patiently for her next wowza. Let’s all keep watch.
