New Track Available On iTunes March 20th
(Los Angeles, CA) – March 7, 2012 – Anyone who has been blessed enough to hear Marjane’ sing knows that this young woman has been gifted with something special. The powerhouse vocalist is no stranger to the gospel music industry having racked up a total of twenty-one industry award nominations and wins including a 2012 Rhythm of Gospel Award Nomination for Music Video of the Year, a 2011 Heart & Soul Gospel Award and the 2010 Ensound Music Award for Best Gospel Female Vocalist. A 2007 Semi-Finalist for BET’s famed program, Sunday Best, Marjane’ (pronounced mar-ja-nay) has been stunning audiences everywhere. Now the Los Angeles-based singer is readying her third J Jane Music Group project, Grateful, starting with the release of the CD’s first single, “Walking In Favor”. A groove-laden, urban-tinged track about the favor of God, “Walking In Favor” not only showcases the songstress’ smooth yet dynamic vocals, but also her remarkable songwriting skills. The lead single will be released on Tuesday, March 20, 2012 and will be available for purchase on iTunes.
“Walking In Favor” isn’t just the title of Marjane’s new track, but it’s a mindset that she wants the people of God to embrace. “One day I was thinking about my life and career and all I could see was favor,” says Marjane’. “I could clearly see the call on my life and decided that I was going to continue to walk in God’s favor. Before I knew it, I was putting pen to pad and the words just came. It was like I was writing a letter to the Lord. ‘Dear Lord, I want to walk in your favor. Protect and surround me with your love and mercy, Lord.” Already, she’s seen audiences rave about the song. Recently after completing a live performance of the song, the audience continued to sing the hook for 10 minutes after she left the stage. It’s those types of responses that make Marjane’ realize that “Walking In Favor” is a message God’s people need to hear, especially in today’s trying economic times.
One of today’s most talked about independent gospel artists, Marjane’ began singing at the age of two. She honed her singing skills at Heritage Christian Center in Denver, Colorado, under the direction of popular praise and worship leader, Pastor Joe Pace. She was featured on the church’s choir album called Praise Him All Ye People. She was named the Runner-up for the Christian Artists Talent Search in Charlotte and the Second Place Winner for the Steve Harvey Talent Search. In 2009, Gospel Music Channel (GMC) named her as a Top 100 Indie Artist and she was nominated as a London MP3 Music Award Nominee. In 2011, she won two Rhythm of Gospel Awards and was nominated for an Independent Music Award. Her videos have been seen on GMC and BET’s Video Gospel. She’s also been blessed to open for Karen Clark Sheard and share the stage with Dr. Bobby Jones & The Nashville Super Choir on BET’s Celebration of Gospel.
An exceptional vocalist who knows how to weave her beautiful soprano voice around some of the most captivating tunes, Marjane’ has released two projects to date: Keys To My Heart and Won’t Let Go. Her new release, Grateful, will be released this fall. For more information about Marjane’, log on to www.marjanemusic.com.
