Motown Gospel Presents New Artist, Me’Kayla, with New Single and Video, “Werking” feat. ChurchPPL, Now Available!

[NASHVILLE, TN] February 9, 2024 — Motown Gospel has just released the new single and video for “Werking” from their newest artist, Me’Kayla. At the youthful age of 20yrs old Me’Kayla is putting her own spin on a classic message declaring that “my angels are ‘werking’ for me”. Joined by Sir the Baptist’s ChurchPPL, this song carries an optimistic carefree tone that is sure to turn any gloomy day into sunshine and smiles. When asked about the release, she says, “The fact that my debut single is out now is mind-blowing to me! I’m so grateful for all the work everyone has put in to making this possible. I really hope people enjoy the music and the video as much as I do!”

Though Me’Kayla is part of the Gen Z era, her inspiration comes from legends long before her time. Legends including Little Richard, Ray Charles, Luther Vandross, Dawkins & Dawkins, and The Clark Sisters. In her words she says, “I’m just a church girl from Tallahassee, FL, and I’m beyond blessed to call Motown Gospel my home. This journey is a dream come true, and I can’t wait to share my music with the world.” One of her inspirations, Kim Burrell, is actually who discovered her on Instagram. After hearing her sing, Burrell called Harry Connick Jr. who then reached out to Motown to create the relationship. Based on Connick’s rave review of her, Motown then signed her while she was in the 12th grade.

This discovery came on the heels of her initial acclaim to fame as a featured vocalist on Tennessee State University’s Grammy Award-winning LP, The Urban Hymnal. It won “Best Gospel Roots Album” in the 65th Annual Grammys Award ceremony in 2023 and was produced by Sir the Baptist.

“Werking” is the first single released from Me’Kayla’s highly anticipated EP, Prelude, which is set to be released at the beginning of April 2024. Both the single and video are now available on all digital streaming platforms.
